'Wow': BBC pundit loved what Liverpool did in 32nd minute v Southampton

Liverpool enjoyed a comfortable Premier League afternoon at Anfield on Saturday as they ran out 4-0 winners over Southampton.

Jurgen Klopp’s charges went into the game on the back of two great results in the top flight and Champions League.

First, the Reds hammered Arsenal 4-0 last weekend, before running out 2-0 winners over Porto in midweek.

And against Southampton, Liverpool led 3-0 by the break, thanks to a Diogo Jota brace and Thiago Alcantara’s deflected effort.

The Reds’ second was a great team effort as Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah exchanged passes near the Saints box before the latter’s low cross was tapped into the empty net by Jota.

BBC Sport pundit Michael Brown spoke highly of the 32nd-minute goal and the build-up, whilst criticising Southampton’s defending.

“Wow, what a team goal this is,” he said on 5 Live (27/11, 15:33). “Nutmegs and one-two’s galore!

“Who’s marking Jota? He can’t believe his luck when it falls to him. Such a cool finish.

“That’s poor defending from Southampton, you can’t leave someone like him unmarked.”

Liverpool added a fourth when Virgil van Dijk got on the scoresheet in the 52nd minute, the Southampton defence once again failing to do much to stop a Reds ace from netting.
