A goaless draw Southampton 0 – 0 Liverpool as Liverpool visited Southampton on Saturday with Jurgen Klopp’s men found it hard to break down Southampton who looked dangerous on the counter attacks. Both teams went into the break with score still level at 0-0 but Liverpool looking more likely to score in what was a very cagey affair for most part.
Nathaniel Clyne headed wide when unmarked late on, spurning the chance to give Liverpool the win over Southampton.
Liverpool remain top of the Premier League despite failing to score for only the third time this season in their goalless draw against Southampton. Liverpool forward Sadio Mane twice went close to opening the scoring on his return to St Mary’s before the break, only to be denied by a superb Fraser Forster save and Virgil van Dijk’s last-ditch block.
Brazilian duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino missed good chances when clear on goal, while another former Saint, Nathaniel Clyne, headed wide late on. Perhaps affected by the international break, Liverpool lacked the fluency that has characterised their impressive start to the season. However, they were also met with a resolute Southampton defence.
The hosts had chances of their own, with Charlie Austin heading Cedric Soares’ cross wide, but defeat would have been harsh on Liverpool who remain ahead of second-placed Manchester City by virtue of scoring more goals.
