Saints come marching half way in

Liverpool are fortunate still to be in the Semi-Final tie after losing their 1st leg League Cup Semi Final 1-0 at Southampton. Roberto Firmino’s early effort was pretty much all Liverpool could muster as Jay Rodriguez put Nathan Redmond through to score the only goal on 22 minutes. Redmond has two other big chances as Rodriguez and defender Virgil Van Dijk had big games. Rodriguez was everywhere and Van Dijk kept Daniel Sturridge quiet throughout.

Despite this Southampton could have put this tie away but have not and Liverpool will still have a strong chance only one behind back at Anfield. It is still a second straight poor performance without a goal from Liverpool however and with an in form Manchester United at Old Trafford up next, it does not get any easier. Liverpool also have the 2nd leg and the FA Cup replay with Plymouth also still to come later this month. The second leg of this tie will be on Wednesday 25th January.
