Leaders Liverpool beaten at Southampton


Danny Ings scores the winner for Southampton against Liverpool
Danny Ings’ goal was his 50th in the Premier League, with 36 coming for Southampton

Liverpool’s Premier League title defence suffered a setback as they fell to defeat at Southampton on Monday.

Danny Ings’ superb second-minute lob over Reds goalkeeper Alisson, from a James Ward-Prowse free-kick, settled the contest against his former club.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side, for whom this was a second league loss of the season, remain top of the table on goal difference but have taken only two points from the past nine available.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City will leapfrog the reigning champions if they win their games in hand.

Southampton’s first win in five Premier League games sees them climb to sixth.

And the hosts were good value for their victory, forcing the pace early on against an unfamiliar Reds backline containing Jordan Henderson and then defending resolutely as the visitors poured forward after the break.

More to follow.
