Anfield remains a fortress in Klopp's 600th league game

Fellaini accepts United closing gap to Premier League summit will be difficult

Wesley Hoedt's unfortunate own goal spurred the hosts into life, with Joel Matip's excellent header doubling their advantage. People are very positive about this player, this player, and I have to decide do I talk to them about them or not, do I leave him alone in this situation, but everything is fine really.

Mohamed Salah returns to the scoresheet as Liverpool continue their 100% start to the season with a comfortable 3-0 win over Southampton at Anfield.

So it was Xherdan Shaqiri's weird substitution at half-time, despite having a fantastic opening 45 minutes on his full debut, that really stole headlines.

Klopp, meanwhile, said that Virgil van Dijk was taken off on the hour as a precaution after he took a blow to the ribs that aggravated an earlier injury.

The 26-year-old, on his first start since a £12million summer move from Stoke, had a hand in the Reds' first and third goals but still had to be sacrificed at the break because Klopp felt holes needed to be plugged.

Southampton failed to mount a meaningful comeback after the break and the result leaves them languishing in mid-table, while Liverpool's ideal record puts them top on 18 points, two ahead of Chelsea who visit West Ham United on Sunday.

"It's only a matter of time before they win something".

10' - GOAL! Liverpool 1-0 Southampton (Hoedt o/g).

The potential takeover of Deliveroo would be a victory for Uber , which is trying to dominate the food delivery segment in Europe. Plus, the talks could end abruptly because Shu and Orlowski are not keen on letting go of their professional independence.

21' - CHANCE! Salah plays a lovely one-two with Firmino and looks poised to tuck home from close range when Cedric comes in from nowhere to make a brilliant last-ditch tackle.

Southampton are coming off a disappointing 2-2 draw with Brighton, a game in which they led 2-0. The Reds are cruising now.

Southampton were nearly gifted an equaliser straight away from Matip's sloppy pass, but Van Dijk was strong enough to see off Long, while Jannik Vestergaard's header from a corner was just wide.

Substitutes: Milner (6), Gomez (6), Keita (5).

"And it was a great feeling to score my first goal here at Anfield".

Shaqiri had a hand in the first and third goal for Liverpool and caused problems for the Saints throughout, while Matip's header midway through the first half gave Liverpool the two goal cushion to play the exciting brand of football that fans have come to expect.

Southampton didn't have a shot on target until the 91st minute.
