      Yeah, Shaqiri was superb, but only 45 mins.... does anyone actually know why? I am sure we would have scored another 3 had he stayed on.

      Klopp said afterward he WAS NOT injured but he wanted to shore up the midfield for defensive purposes. He didn't say this but I imagine it means Shaq will be starting the Cup match Wednesday vs. Chelsea as back to back 90-minute games after playing very little for more than a month would be asking quite a bit. Perhaps this time Shaq will play wide in a 4-3-3. He had a good debut as a starter, despite the early hook.

      Mo is also rounding into form, I think.

      Took a few things from today,wee Shaq attack looked the bollocks great free kick, sooner or later Mo`s going to click he's so close the flick back to goal was a wondrous attempt and unlucky not to score , a huge plus in my eyes was how we coped when Virgil went off the 2 J`s looked very sold in fact Robbo ,TAA & Co  bossed it .

      Next few games will be a test but I think we are well sorted with our summer signings and the depth of our squad that  we have now,  I dont know if Jürgen will make many changes in the cup be it would be good I guess to see some of the bench get 90 mins but thats up to him  all in all everything is good in Liverpool world.

      I know points make prizes and we have 2 on them but theres 4 in the GD stakes  just sayin .

      Routine win then was it folks?

      Just got done watching it. They almost looked bored in the second half. Probably could have had 3 or 4 more goals had they not tried to walk everything in.

      It was like a professional hit.

      Nice for Shaq to get MOTM for 45 mins he is going to be a great addition to this squad by either playing or by keeping a number of players on their toes.

      Big Shaq man of the match. The second half was a complete non-event and I napped through a bit of it.

      Good times to be a Red.

For me a League Cup win would mean 0.0, it's only FA, CL and PL that counts, but I am not English, so does the League Cup mean anything to you or is it just like those preseason tournament sh*t they invented recently?

      Watching Mo smile and score was definitely a bonus he could have easily had a hattrick. 
      Even with a so called "weaker side" on Weds we are still going to be able to put out a really good team

      Still a shadow of the player from last season, but getting better.
      Overall a very confident performance from the team although second half was a bit meh with to much sloppy play and misplaced passes.

      What's our record on goals scored vs conceded from free kicks this season?  I know we've scored quite a few and not conceded many.  Just curious if anyone knows what the spread is?  Its definitely an area that we vastly improved in the last few years!!

      I just hope the shadow keeps on playing like he did against Southampton as he takes 2 or 3 opposing players out if the game every time he has the ball.

      one thing you have to remember is last season Salah was just another player at this stage in the season. Now he is world class and everyone knows it. Teams setup just to stop him, which gives the rest of the team space. Today Southampton stuck 3 defenders on him at times, they got nervous that badly they were kicking the ball in their own net. I am putting it down to Salah scares the sh*t out of defences.

      F***ing hell Rib. Not bad.



      I don't think Salah is a shadow of his self at all - today he was all over that backline, they were f**king terrified. Could have had a hat trick if not for a decent tackle when he was through, and that almost goal of the year back heel. He's still a touch off his best, but he's certainly doing the job for us. He's adjusting to life as a world class player with a target on his back pretty well, I reckon.

      I think the FA Cup has slid in terms of importance.  But, the last few yeas their  have been some fantastic matches and finals. Its still not the CL or PL. But i love it and hope we win it.

      Great to see us getting the points again without being anywhere near our best.  We are looking far less likely to concede at the moment that for a long time.

      Shaq was very good - he will only get better having better players around him.  Robbo just continues to impress me, he must be the most complete left back around at the moment.

      It is nice to know that the midweek game will see both teams rest players and we have a bunch of lads who are actually playing to get in our best 11, we do have some greater depth than recent years.

      Gave Matip my MOTM, as I thought he looked very good for his first game of the season, and took his goal very well.

      Just watched MOTD and even re-watching the full match, nothing is actually said of the disallowed goal, but shouldn't the disallowed goal have counted? It came off 2 Southampton players before Salah latched on to it?

      Shaqiri and Matip were brilliant as the rest of the team. We were stuck at 2nd gear but it was enough :)

      Keep them coming.

      Not done this type of post in while but will give it a go:

      Allison: Didn't faff about and seemed good on the ball, got rid when needed and made a decent save at the end 7/10

      TAA: Lad is getting better and better, thought he looked great again. 8/10
      VvD: Best centre back in the world bar none. Hope all is ok, but looked like a precaution to take him off. 8/10
      Matip: Great to see him back, love watching him go on those huge runs upfield, good with the ball and well taken header. 9/10
      Robertson: World class player, never a bad game and today was no different, I imagine people must hate playing against him and I'm delighted we have him. 9/10

      Henderson: Kept the game ticking over very nicely. Made some excellent recoveries and looked good when pressed up further too, really nice dribble which took 3 players out of the game. Saints midfield couldn't get past or get a grip of the game. 9/10
      Gini: Same with Henderson, Saints could do nothing to get round or win the ball back because our midfield was so much better than theirs. Gini is having his best season ever so far in this team, and today was another top showing. 9/10
      Shaqiri: Thought he might play in this position when we signed him, and boy has he made a mark soon. He's loving the freedom that Gini and Hendo give him to march forward and the deeper role than he normally plays means he has space, and space and pace are frightening when put together. I cannot wait to see more of him in that 3 in midfield. 9/10

      Salah: Don't get all this talk about him not playing well, he looks a little tired at times but nothing more. He's getting into the right places and also let's not forget he's actually scoring 1 in 2 which is nothing to sniff at. Another step in the right direction today 8/10
      Mane: Quieter game for Sadio today, but when he gets the ball it's just exciting, you can tell defenders are shitting themselves because they know they don't have the pace to deal with him. 7/10
      Firmino: Was off the boil a little, things were just an inch out of place or passes just short of the mark. Still though his workrate and pressure is always on point, just love having him in the team and you can see him, Mo and Mane are thinking the same things, but it didn't quite come off the way he wanted against Saint. Still a decent showing 7/10

      Gomez also looks like a beast at CB, was great to see him perform even without VvD beside him. Keita isn't having the impact I thought he'd have right from the start, but Klopp does like to give new signings time as we seen with Robbo so I'm happy to see him slowly introduced. Also Milner might just be the best player in the league based on form right now!

      What a f**king team we have!

      People need to understand that finishing involves luck to a significant degree, and outcomes naturally fluctuate over time. Obviously seeing a player missing chances can be frustrating but on the long term the most important thing is that your players are getting themselves into good positions, creating and getting chances. And that Salah has been doing the whole season, which is why I'm really not worried about him. He's been quite good and he's probably due for a spectacular performance sometime soon.
