Liverpool vs. Southampton: *Bumper* Post-Match Analysis
Paul Tomkins, Andrew Beasley, Daniel Rhodes and other TTT regulars will give their thoughts on the match for 24 hours after the game, so the article received via email is unlikely to be the final version. There's statistics from the match and videos too.
Well, more chaos at TTT Towers (Free Friday may now be a Free Sunday, with Daniel temporarily hospitalised), but the Reds' resurgence rolls on – with a deserved half-stroll against Southampton, whose new-manager bounce will have to begin after the World Cup (when the Reds face new-manager Aston Villa).
Darwin Núñez grabbed a brace, but Mo Salah was never likely to score, given that Liverpool have yet to be given a league penalty this season, and have conceded three – that's how unbalanced the officiating has been, given that Liverpool do two-thirds of the attacking, with another one most teams would get waved away here (oh look, Kop end as well; refs know better than to dare give them at that end).
Anyway, I have a lot to say about the explosive Núñez below (including analysing something unique in the way that he scores goals), who was sensational in the first half, before the Reds hit the handbrake at 3-1 and largely coasted, bar a split-second of sloppiness on three occasions, which produced superb saves by Alisson. A couple of other players also caught the eye.
