Jurgen Klopp’s men are proving to be immense away from home, after beating Chelsea, Manchester City and now the Saints all in impressive fashion.
Divock Origi previously hadn’t scored for Liverpool, but was offered a rare start with Christian Benteke rested. Daniel Sturridge also made his first start after a long term injury.
The St Mary’s Stadium witnessed a goal fest starting in the very first minute as Sadio Mane headed home a cross from the left.
After 25 minutes Sturridge received the ball on the left and quickly cut in to unleash a fierce drive low in the bottom right corner.
A few minutes later Emre Can produced a brilliant bit of skill to beat his marker and then chipped the ball over the defense with the outside of his foot, finding Sturridge clean through to knock home his second.
Just before the half ended, Alberto Moreno thought he scored the third goal, but it went off Origi into the net as Liverpool took a 3-1 lead at half-time.
After the break Origi’s confidence lifted and he cracked home a fine effort off the bar, struck it sweetly for 4-1.
Jordon Ibe rubbed the salt into the Saints wounds when he was found in the box before lashing it in.
Southampton just couldn’t wait for the game to end, but the visitors were merciless, as Origi completed his hat-trick with a close range header. In the closing minutes, Emre Can could’ve made it seven but his shot across goal was well saved.
