Liverpool’s incredible march towards winning the English Championship title, a competition the club has not won since 1990, had another chapter this Saturday. Playing at their fortress, Anfield Road, the team led by Jurgen Klopp thrashed Southampton 4-0 and extended their lead in the competition.
With the triumph achieved at home, Liverpool kept their unbeaten run in the title race in the league, but not only that. The Reds count on 24 wins and a draw in 25 matches. Unbelievable stats, that no League in Europe has ever seen.
The difference between Liverpool and second-placed Man City is now 22 points.
Increasingly, the main question about Liverpool’s campaign is not whether they will win the League or not, but when they will win it and whether it will be unbeaten.
Despite the elastic win over Southampton, the game was not that easy as the scoring indicates.
The first half was very busy and the visitors had some opportunities to open the scoring, which did not happen, among other things, because of the safety of goalkeeper Alisson.
The halt was broken just one min after half-time. In a play down the left, Andy Robertson backheeled it to Roberto Firmino, who also showed his skills to assist Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who adjusted his body and struck at the bottom corner from the edge of the area to make it one.
Then it was time for the captain Jordan Henderson to grab his goal, on 59 minutes, with another assist from Firmino.
On 71, Henderson’s long ball found Salah, who ran faster than Saints defenders in the final third, got inside the area and tapped in.
Salah grabbed his second in the game on 90, from another pass from Firmino, in a shot from close-range.
We need to recognize history when it’s passing right in front of our eyes. In some years, not only Liverpool fans, but maybe the whole world will remember this more-than-memorable season the Reds are having.
