Firmino, Salah help Liverpool heap more misery on Southampton

Dejan Lovren reveals the mental turmoil he puts himself through when making mistakes

The African forward started the weekend one goal adrift of the Premier League's leading goal-scorer Harry Kane before the England global netted the victor in the north London derby.

Liverpool's signing of Van Dijk was a huge high point, as the team's defence was causing Jurgen Klopp and their fans all sorts of nightmares, so when the Dutchman scored the victor in the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round he was an instant hero.

Lovren has started on 18 occasions in the Premier League this season and the Croatian global played alongside van Dijk against Spurs in the dramatic 2-2 draw at Anfield.

Numerous slip-ups have rendered Liverpool unable to pull away from rivals competing for a top-four place but, with the quality and proficiency of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, the final third of the season should be fixated upon securing the Premier League's runners-up spot and putting together a good run in the Champions League knockout rounds.

"Hopefully we feel at the end of the game that we are growing and we are continuing with this feeling".

By sweetening the offer, he's also improving prospects for his nominations to Qualcomm's board in a shareholder vote next month. Added Tan: "We want to reiterate that $82 per Qualcomm share is our best and final offer ".

"We scored early, got the second goal in the right moment and then controlled the game".

However, defending wasn't brilliant, especially from balls into the box and so the likes of Hoedt and Stephens will need to watch out for this as Liverpool could really damage us with the likes of Mane, Firmino and Salah. I'm not bothered. What's important is what the manager says because he is the man in charge of me.

The Saints, as mentioned, go into the game unbeaten in over a month and have shown some serious signs of improvements as of late.

"Today the biggest defeat was the way we played in the second-half", said under-fire Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino, whose substitutions after the break were met with cries of "you don't know what you're doing" from the home crowd. "The people see our reaction on the pitch and the players feel the reaction". "But I think we deserved the three points, clean sheets and no injuries, it was flawless". However, with the likes of Salah, Mane and Firmino in their ranks, I don't think we will outscore them but they do have defensive issues at times so I'm going to go with a 2-2 draw!
