Liverpool boost top four hopes as Mane, Thiago see off Southampton

Sadio Mane opened the scoring on Merseyside with a close-range header 31 minutes into the contest, and Liverpool had Alisson Becker to thank for keeping the Saints at bay before Thiago Alcantara’s classy finish in the 90th minute settled the contest.

In a further boost for Liverpool, the Foxes face a daunting run-in against Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham, as well as next week’s FA Cup Final against Thomas Tuchel’s Blues.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s remaining fixtures see them face Man United, West Brom, Burnley and Crystal Palace – and a good result at Old Trafford next Thursay would leave Klopp’s side as arguable favourites for a top-four finish.
