Liverpool's imperious form continued on Saturday against Southampton at Anfield, with the Reds notching 4 goals without response against the visitors. Here's a look at the best underrated moments from the game:
Fabinho's backheel pass
While normally Fabinho is the best at stopping opposition attacks and winning the ball back for Liverpool, the midfielder does serve up the occasional reminder that he is Brazilian after all!
He played an excellent backheel pass under pressure to get Liverpool attacking against Southampton during the game.
Salah played the ball to Fab with Southampton initiating the press
And Fab opened his body
Before turning and hitting it with his heel
And setting Liverpool up to go the other way
Mane and Robbo's elite inter-play
Robertson played the ball to Mane inside on the left
Getting it back immediately with the winger making a run
Robertson fed it to him and made a run of his own through 3 defenders
And sure enough the winger played it right back to him in the box
From where he played it to an incoming Jota to tap it and open Livepool's account
Alisson's early save
Alisson was called upon more often than he generally is when the Reds win 4-0 and he made a couple of crucial early saves.
Thiago lost the ball in sloppy fashion in midfield
With the Saints player running through on goal but Ali had already spotted the danger
Getting there in time to make the stop at point-blank range
And allowing Trent to clear the danger
Mane's accidental skill
Sadio Mane can often be a tricky customer for opponents to deal with and sometimes he can trick himself too!
The winger had a bit of a luck ricochet that led to a chance for the Reds on Saturday, one of the funnier things we've seen.
Robbo played the ball into Sadio
Who tried to play it inside but it bounced off his own standing leg
And allowed him to run uncontested into the box, confusing the defenders
Fabinho's double block
Liverpool were cruising early in the second half, having gone up 4-0 thanks to Van Dijk. But the clean sheet was a must for the Reds, and their tenacity was best exemplified by this Fabinho moment.
The Saints player received the ball inside Liverpool's box
But Fabinho got in the way as he turned and shot
The ball ricocheted to another attacker in the box
But the Brazilian stretched out his long legs to cut out the danger again
Van Dijk being Van Dijk
Every time he plays, Virgil van Dijk always takes at least one moment to remind us that he's the best in the world. Against Southampton late in the game, it was a non-chalant interception that caught the eye.
Konate lost the header from a Southampton goal kick
And the flick-on was being played into the path of a Saints player about to go through on goal
But Van Dijk got himself in the way as he often does
And got the crucial touch
Allowing Fabinho to run the other way
