Southampton 1-3 Liverpool: Reds go back to Premier League summit as Mohamed Salah ends goal drought

Mohamed Salah scored his first Liverpool goal in nine games to help the Reds claim top spot in the Premier League by coming back from behind to beat Southampton 3-1 at St Mary’s.

The Egyptian ran from inside his own half before curling the ball into the corner ten minutes from time as Liverpool moved to points ahead of title rivals Manchester City.

Substitute Jordan Henderson tapped home a late third to seal the success after Naby Keita’s first goal in English football cancelled out Shane Long’s early opener for the in-form hosts.

With Pep Guardiola’s City in FA Cup semi-final action this weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s men will remain at the summit until they play Chelsea on April 14 at the very least.

Saints, meanwhile, stay five points clear of the drop zone after their two-game winning run was ended.
