Klopp's side appeared in danger of dropping valuable points until Salah intervened in the 80th minute to claim his 50th Premier League goal for Liverpool in only his second season at the club.

"I think that's goal number 50 for Liverpool in the Premier League, that's special", he told Sky Sports.

More energy from the reds through Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson as he secured the three points with a third goal - drilling in after Firmino crossed the ball from the edge of the area.

Salah gave the pair the slip with what some Twitter users called "perfect timing", as Henderson and Robertson ending up in each other's arms, rather than hugging their teammate.

Jurgen Klopp insists he never doubted Mohamed Salah as the Egyptian ended an eight-game scoring drought to help fire Liverpool back to the top of the Premier League.

City are about to embark on a punishing run of games - on paper far more challenging than Liverpool's - and I would not be surprised if Pep Guardiola's side, for all its brilliance, slips up in the league in one of its away matches.

Then, when Henderson himself got on the end of a flowing Liverpool move to seal the 3-1 win, his celebrations took on an iconic quality - the sort of image journalists turn to when they seek to deconstruct a title triumph.

"A first goal after a while".

Now Neville has admitted he was wrong to question Van Dijk, as he suggested the centre-back should be crowned as PFA Player of the Year after his sparkling performances for Liverpool this season.

Liverpool sit two points ahead of current champions Manchester City at the top of the table, who have a game in hand with six matches remaining.

Jurgen Klopp has chosen to just shuffle his midfield in what is a relatively unchanged Liverpool eleven from their win over Tottenham as they face Southampton.

"I think the first half was hard because we made it hard".

"It was a great assist from Bobby for the goal and obviously Mo's goal was very important".

"Honestly, every time I watch Liverpool play, even if Matip misses it or two full-backs aren't there because they've gone forward, he just seems to cover the whole back four".

"When I came in and thought first about the team, Hendo was a box-to-box player", Klopp said.

Jordan Henderson and James Milner were introduced in the second-half for Trent Alexander-Arnold and Gini Wijnaldum.
