Southampton boss Pellegrino urges fans not to jeer Van Dijk

Dejan Lovren reveals the mental turmoil he puts himself through when making mistakes

Dejan Lovren reveals the mental turmoil he puts himself through when making mistakes

Virgil van Dijk starts against his old team Southampton for the first time since arriving at Liverpool in January, with fellow ex-Saints Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Sadio Mane also in the squad. The Egyptian forward laid the ball through to Firmino and the Brazilian finished the one-on-one easily to score his first goal in seven games.

Liverpool's signing of Van Dijk was a huge high point, as the team's defence was causing Jurgen Klopp and their fans all sorts of nightmares, so when the Dutchman scored the victor in the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round he was an instant hero.

It put pressure on Manchester United, who suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at Newcastle at St James' Park, Liverpool are just two points off Jose Mourinho's side.

Indeed, Jurgen Klopp failed to sign a recognised striker in the summer but it has not been to the detriment of his side's progress this season.

Salah received the ball from Joel Matip around 30 yards out from goal and was allowed to turn and play a short pass into Firmino's feet.

Salah's role in the two goals should not be underestimated but Firmino's brilliance was timely given Liverpool legend John Aldridge's quotes earlier in the week.

Goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah gave the Reds victory and meant the Saints ended the day in the Premier League relegation zone. For the first, arriving after just six minutes, Salah spotted Firmino's darting run into the area.

One-time Southampton player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain tried his luck moments later, with a deflected strike being stopped and held by Alex McCarthy.

Van Dijk actually missed the win over City and made his league debut against Swansea, but things didn't go according to plan.
