Firmino returns as Shaqiri gets first league start

Solanke Out Of Liverpool, Southampton Fixture

Liverpool maintained their 100 per cent record in the Premier League with a 3-0 win over Southampton at Anfield.

"I just love Mo's smile, he makes my day."

"It was not easy, to be honest. All round it was a good performance, very controlled in the second half and that's how it should be".

Klopp gave strong consideration to starting him against Paris Saint-Germain last Tuesday - the idea, with Roberto Firmino injured, was to play Shaqiri out wide and move Mohamed Salah into a central position - but the time may now be right to introduce the 26-year-old. "It's my job to sometimes deliver news nobody wants to hear", said the German.

There was little in the way of early threat from either side, but Sean Dyche's side increased the pressure and were rewarded a few minutes before half-time, Ashley Westwood's blocked effort falling to Matej Vidra, who tapped in.

"It's just good to have him".

He has scored twice in six matches this term, though he had only one more goal at this stage of the 2017-18 campaign.

"If we had been dominated in the game and poor for long periods, which was not the case, we would have been more concerned going up against an in-form Liverpool team".

"It's a surprise to win seven games because of course you can not expect it, but all performances we showed so far were at least good enough to win the games", stated Klopp.

Liverpool will be looking to maintain their ideal start to the new season when they welcome Southampton to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

"It's not cool, but should not be too serious". It should be absolutely OK, hopefully. "I made different decisions but his time will come, that's for sure". Despite initial claims from the Swiss playmaker, his dead ball didn't cross the line and it was definitely Salah's goal. His first Premier League start for the Reds was in the Swansea defeat but since then Liverpool have lost only four in 25 in all competitions with the Dutch defender in the line-up and all four were against teams of Champions League calibre.
