Liverpool won their seventh consecutive game in all competition with a 3-0 drubbing of Southampton, in an English Premier League (EPL) 2018-19 match, in what is turning out to be a dream season for Jurgen Klopp’s men. Joel Matip, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri were the three fresh players drafted in by Liverpool.
Shaqiri made an instant impression ten minutes into the game when his deflected strike found the back of the net courtesy a touch of fortune from Wesley Hoedt. Joel Matip then headed home his side’s second of the game to mark his first goal since last November.
