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.

Liverpool FC manager Jurgen Klopp should consider signing Toby Alderweireld in the summer to partner Virgil van Dijk, Steve Nicol says.

Keita appealed for a penalty but appeared to go down easily under Maya Yoshida's challenge, with Liverpool needing Salah to break his drought to nudge ahead.

Manchester City have a game in hand on their title rivals, with Neville suggesting both will drop points amid a hectic fixture list in April. "We have shown that in many games before but you could see it clearly".

Citing the safari company with which they were traveling, The New York Timesreported on Sunday that a ransom had in fact been paid.

Van Dijk told LiverpoolFC.com that the Reds' early struggles were as a result of their own approach, with Liverpool trying to send more midfielders forward than usual.

Salah returned to scoring form with an outstanding solo run and finish as Liverpool recovered from falling a goal behind to beat Southampton 3-1 at St Mary's and move two points clear of Manchester City.

Henderson has been directly involved in as many goals in tonight's game vs Southampton alone as he has in the previous two Premier League seasons combined (2).

Purring after a "brilliant" comeback, Klopp, who joined in the celebrations after the final whistle, said: "We have 82 points, that is massive in this insane league and everyone is waiting for us (to slip up)". We have 82 points now, that is massive in this insane league and everyone is waiting for us.

Haftar attacking Tripoli with Egyptian, UAE and Saudi arms, Libya General claims
Pro-government forces in the capital Tripoli confirmed they had targeted Haftar's men with "intensive strikes". The general's loyalists say five of their troops have been killed in the clashes.

"But James Milner and Henderson came on, brought aggressiveness - verbal aggressiveness - and we had direction again after that".

Long's strike was also significant in that it marked an inevitable, but still unwelcome, milestone for Liverpool who have now conceded 5000 goals in the English top-flight, 125 years after Coombe Hall netted the first goal against the Reds for Blackburn in 1894.

"I think the first half was hard because we made it hard". It's at Anfield, it's a quarter-final, it's a big one for us. It was so with Liverpool player Mohammed Salah who scored a stunning goal against Southampton, but, it was his celebration involving Jordan Henderson and Andrew Robertson that caught people off guard.

Liverpool stormed back from a goal down to take all three points against a very good Southampton side.
