BBC Sport - Southampton 0-2 Liverpool: Giant step forward - Brendan Rodgers

Rodgers hails 'giant step forward'

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says Liverpool's 2-0 win over Southampton was a giant step forward.

Philippe Coutinho's 25-yard curler in the third minute helped Liverpool take the lead before Raheem Sterling made it 2-0 when Matt Targett failed to clear a cross.

After the Boxing Day fixtures Liverpool were 10 points behind Man Utd - they have now cut the gap to two points.
