Match ends, Liverpool 0, Southampton 1.
Early Premier League pacesetters Liverpool suffered their first defeat of the season as a Dejan Lovren goal gave Southampton victory at Anfield.
Lovren had escaped conceding a penalty for a challenge on Daniel Sturridge in the first half.
The Croat then held off Daniel Agger to steer in a header from Adam Lallana's corner to put Saints ahead.
Liverpool struggled for fluency and chances as the visitors easily held on for a second league win of the season.
