LIVE
94'
FT: Southampton 1-2 Liverpool! Liverpool were in control after a great second half display due to goals from Mane and Firmin, but Ings made things interesting after a terrible error by Adrian and Liverpool had to hold on for the last 10 minutes. Liverpool were poor, but claimed the three points. Thanks for joining us and see you again shortly!

Last chance for Soton, but Valery's cross from the near side goes straight to Adrian!!! And that's the end!

89'
Liverpool sub: Henderson is on for the Ox.

86'
That goal has lifted the home fans and what a miss!!!!!! Valery puts in a superb ball for Valery and the ball is put in for Ings who scuffs it from inside the six when he had an open net!!!!!! Valery may have been offside though so it may not have counted.
84'
Djenepo is carded.
83'
Danny Ings!!!!! What an error by Adrian!!!! Van Dijk passes to his GK, Adrian takes a touch and as he tries to clear, Ings puts his foot there to divert it in!!! The same thing nearly happened in the first half.
80'
Attempts: 4-10 in the second half.
79'
Matip almost scores an own goal!!! He tries to clear Valery's cross and Adrian has to deflect for a corner!

71'
It's all over!!!! Firmino kills this one off!!! Bednarek is dispossesed near his own goal by Mane, the Senegalese passes to Firmino who turns before slotting it into the goalie's bottom right hand corner. Soton lost the ball from a throw-in and were punished.

68'
Southampton: Armstrong on for Adams.

64'
Southampton sub: Ings replaces Romeu.
63'
Liverpool have a long move now which ends with Milner firing over the top for a two point conversion.
63'

56'
What a save by Gunn to deny Salah!!! That was a brilliant save to deny the Egyptian although the linesman missed the Liverpool man being offside.

Southampton get us going again!
45'
HT: Southampton 0-1 Liverpool!!! Half-time on the South Coast and despite being very average for most of the half, the away side lead thanks to a great goal by Sadio Mane right on half-time. Redmond and Adams have been the dangerous for the hosts up to now. See you again shortly for the rest of this one!
45'
Mane scores out of nothing!!!! Wijnaldum and Milner combine before Mane gets the ball on the edge of the box, he takes a touch and turns before smacking it right into the far corner. Liverpool undeservedly lead!
45'
Two added minutes.
45'
Liverpool need this half-time interval as soon as possible.
43'
Redmond is playing really well for the home side. Milner has got a large white bandage on his head.
42'
Redmond makes yet another brilliant move down this near side and he plays in Bertrand. He is offside though.
38'
Adams!!!! A lovely cross in by Romeu and Adams gets too much on his header. It flies just over the bar.

Romeu sees yellow for a challenge on Robertson. He gets the ball first. Poor decision.

33'
Shots: 4-3, on target: 1-1.
32'
Robertson makes a vital tackle on the counter as Redmond was bearing down on the goal.
31'
Corner for Liverpool. Salah takes and the ball back in by Alexander-Arnold is well cliamed by Gunn.
28'
Adams goes down wanting a spot-kick, but nothing given. And then Adrian has to make a brilliant stop from Bertrand's cross after Redmond had given him the ball.
27'
Liverpool are not dominating this game at all. Saints are playing really well now.
25'
Ward-Prowse's free-kick in beats everybody.
23'
Alexander-Arnold's ball in beats everyone and it's a goal kick.
22'

Adams shoots from the corner at the far post and Vestergaard almost turns it in!!
17'
Nice move by the Saints after Redmond is fed the ball before a winning a corner off the Ox.
15'
Man down here for Southampton. It was Ward-Prowse, but I think Milner has got to his eyebrow. He headed Ward Prowse's head. Milner is bleeding.
13'
Chance for Liverpool!! Salah gets the ball, but he is surrounded by defenders so he backheels it to the Ox who fires well wide of the GK's right hand post.
12'
Mane is brought down in his own half.
9'
Adams is in now!!! A long pass by Redmond looks for Adams and Adrian comes out to put pressure on and get the ball.
8'
What was Adrian doing?? Van Dijk passes it back to his keeper and his clearance is charged down by Ward-Prowse. Fortunately for the Spaniard, it goes out for a goal kick, but that could've gone anywhere.
7'
Good defence by Adams to stop Alexander-Arnold going any further and he the Liverpool,man then fouls him.
6'
Ward-Prowse has to head the Ox's cross in for a corner. Yoshida caused the problem after losing the ball in defence.
3'
Milner!!!!! He charges down the middle and shoots from 25 yards out!!! His effort is deflected by Yoshida though and the deflection is kind for Gunn.
2'
Valery is caught offside.
2'
The Ox makes a lovely made down the middle, he passes to Alexander-Arnold, the ball is sent to the far stick where a Liverpool player gets his head to it to square, but can't find a teammate. Dangerous.
1'
Liverpool get us underway in the black and shooting from left to right! Soton in the usual.
Prev.
The players make their way out!!!! Gomez, Henderson, Fabinho and Origi drop to the bench. They are the four changes Liverpool make compared to the Norwich game.
Prev.
Veteran Andy Lonergan, who was brought to the club as an emergency GK, is on the bench and would have started if Adrian hadn't been fit. He's almost 36, has never played in the PL and used to play for clubs like Preston.
Prev.
By the way, Firmino is starting today not like in midweek when he didn't come on until half-time.
Prev.
21 degrees in Southampton this afternoon and dry.
Prev.
The referee is Andre Marriner and Craig Pawson is the VAR. Pawson left PAOK Salonika fuming in midweek after giving three pens against them at Ajax on Tuesday night in a CL qualifier.
Prev.
Southampton will be looking to bounce back after losing 3-0 at Burnley last weekend.
Prev.
Remember Liverpool beat Norwich 4-1 in their opening PL game before winning on penalties on Wednesday after it was 2-2 after 120 minutes. Will they be tired this afternoon!
Prev.
The big news here is that Adrian is fit in the Liverpool goal. He passed a late fitness test on his ankle after a fan who ran onto the pitch on Wednesday night to congratulate him on his penalty save, slipped and kicked his ankle!
Prev.
Liverpool team: Adrian (GK); Robertson, Van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold; Milner, Wijnaldum, the Ox; Mane, Firmino and Salah.
Prev.
The teams are in!! Southampton XI: Gunn (GK); Vestergaard, Yoshida, Bednarek; Bertrand, Hojbjerg, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Valery; Redmond and Che Adams.
Prev.
Good afternoon and welcome to live coverage of the Premier League clash between Southampton and Liverpool from St Mary's! Will the hosts bounce back from last weekends defeat or will Liverpool feel the effects of Istanbul? Stay here to find out!
