Liverpool clashed heads with Southampton at Anfield earlier tonight, hoping to pick up all three points on their home turf. Roberto Firmino broke the deadlock in the 6th minute as he headed the ball past Gavin Bazanu from Harvey Elliott’s cross. Che Adams equalised within three minutes; however, a brace from Darwin Nunez before the half-time whistle helped Liverpool secure all three points.
