Liverpool keep their chance to fight for the English football championship: Klopp’s side come from behind against Southampton and thus shine in the wake of leaders Manchester City once again.
Coach Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are keeping the tension in the English Football League championship run until the final day of the match. Thanks to a 2-1 (1-1) win at Southampton on Tuesday night, the Reds took a one-point advantage over pre-season leaders Manchester City in the Premier League. Liverpool receive Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday (5 pm), while Manchester City plays against Aston Villa at the same time. If Pep Guardiola’s side beat Villa, it would be the fourth tournament in the past five seasons and eighth overall.
Three days after their success in the FA Cup final on penalties against Chelsea, the match in Southampton began with a knockout blow to almost completely change Liverpool’s squad. In the 13th minute, Nathan Redmond gave former Leipzig coach Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team the lead with a superb long-range shot. Takumi Minamino (27) equalized for Klopp’s team before the end of the first half. In the second half, Liverpool did not capitalize on their superiority enough to have a clearer success. So it was none other than the winning header by ex-Schalke player Joel Matip (67th place).
Liverpool can do a quadruple this season: they have already won the League Cup and the FA Cup. They will also face Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28.
