58 min: Big penalty appeal for Liverpool! Plays one-two with Mane, surges into the area and goes over after a sliding challenge from Yoshida. Paul Tierney waves play on. I think that should have been a penalty, even though Keita had overrun the ball and was probably looking for it. It was still a foul for mine.
54 min “Maybe it's because I was in the U-S-A! and completely ignorant (please read on) about these things, ”says Peter Oh," but the missive about cricket had me hearing crickets, and the update on Dundee had me imagining a crocodile. "

"Dundee United has just made a 94th-minute equalizer to Ross County to virtually hand the Scottish Championship to the Highlanders, and now face the playoffs for a third season running, possibly against neighboring Dundee. So, you know, it could be worse, Liverpool fans. ”
Oh lordy, not again .
"Great to see Southampton and Liverpool joining in on the County Championship action," says Ramkumar Rajgopalan, " I don't understand how Keita could have scored 36 runs if it's 1-1 … "
I blame Haseeb Hameed; I had cricket on the brain today.
Half time: Southampton 1-1 Liverpool

39 min Firmino's thought cross from the left skims off the head of Mane, six yards from goal. That was a chance, but he got his jump and the ball drifted to safety. Liverpool are getting a lot of joy from crosses

But plenty happened between that moment and the goal, which came from a wonderful cross near the byline from Alexander-Arnold. He curled it at pace to the far post, where Keita's close-range header bounced through the hands of the sprawling Gunn and into the net.

30 min A headed clearance is volleyed over from 25 yards by Firmino. It was a very difficult chance, if that.
29 min After another neat, precise counter-attack from Southampton, Hojbjerg's cross from the left just clears Long at the far post. 27 min "I see," says Trent Alexander-Arnold has looked unusually vulnerable.

Any suggestions? ”
23 min Cleverly worked short corner comes to Salah, who flicks a shot with the outside of the boot that is blocked on the six-yard line
