Liverpool huffed and puffed in the opening minutes of the game and could have been a 2-0 lead in the first half if the aforementioned Long had taken the opportunity that he was presented with.
Shane Long and Southampton were then punished for that win after Naby Keita hit the back of the net with his 39th minute header thereby paving the way for Salah to score a breakaway goal at a crucial time in the game.
The Egyptian scored a second goal for Liverpool with ten minutes left to go for his 50th Premier League goal.
He’s the quickest Liverpool player to reach that landmark (66 games).
