Liverpool continued their tremendous run of form as they came from behind to earn a hard fought 2-1 triump against an out of form Southampton side in their PL match at the St Mary's stadium on Tuesday night, to stretch their unbeaten streak to 17 matches on a trot & reduce the gap between them & leaders Manchester City to only 1 point ahead of the final matchday this weekend.

The Saints opened the scoring in the 13th minute as Nathan Redmond's deflected shot got past the helpless Allison Becker. In The 27th minute, Diogo Jota teed up Takumi Minamino who slotted home a sensational strike to restore parity in the match & ensure both sides were level at the break. The Reds resumed the 2nd half as the better side & deservedly turned the game around with Joel Matip heading home a rebound in the box in the 67th minute which also proved decisive as Jurgen Klopp's troops held on to bag all the three points.
