  • Things took an unexpected turn right about now

Salah's goal ended an eight-match scoreless sequence but was a 50th in 69 Premier League games, establishing a club record in the process.

Jordan Henderson finished from close range moments later to get the score to 3-1 and secure the points for Liverpool, keeping them on pace in their title quest.

Henderson bagged Liverpool's third goal in Friday's crucial 3-1 win at Southampton.

With just ten minutes to go, Mohamed Salah received the ball in his own half before starting a one-man counter and heading towards Southampton's penalty area.

Keita looked like he was about to burst into tears, his first Liverpool goal was a moment to treasure for the ex-Leipzig player.

"There's not many games left, any mistake can cost us".

That was also the Irishman's 50th Premier League goal and he should have had 51 shortly after when he failed to connect with another unsafe Bertrand cross and Virgil van Dijk almost turned the ball into his own net against his old club.

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl was proud of his players" efforts but felt they needed a "near-perfect game' to pull off a shock success against now-league leaders Liverpool.

Salah is at his most unsafe on the stroke of half-time - scoring 18% of his goals in the last five minutes of the opening half, including stoppage time.

Speaking after the game, 28-year-old Henderson urged his team to go and win every game.

As Salah burst forward, he was joined by Roberto Firmino who offered him a pass on his left. "I thought the lads showed great character under a little pressure in the first half, but to come out and win in the second half is a big win - a big performance".

"He'll be the man who puts Liverpool back at the top of the league".

"So I'm very happy to score a goal to help the team. I am really happy with the performance, we knew it would be hard so winning here is not easy but we did it". Tidy in possession and thankfully was not called on for much work in the second half.
