  12. GOAL - Southampton 0-2 Liverpool

    Roberto Firmino

    A classy finish by Roberto Firmino.

    Southampton only have themselves to blame after gifting possession at a throw-in inside their own half.

    The ball ends up at Firmino's feet and the Brazilian has plenty of work to do before steering low beyond Angus Gunn.
