The Swiss global took just 10 minutes to make an impact, although he was helped by some good fortune as he broke the deadlock.

The game is the Reds seventh straight victory across all competitions, putting them ahead in the premier league.

"I said to Shaq at half-time that I'd never taken a player off at half-time after such an influential half".

The German has won nearly half of those games - overseeing 296 victories - with 158 draws and 146 defeats.

Southampton are coming off a disappointing 2-2 draw with Brighton, a game in which they led 2-0.

The goals came from Joel Matip and Mohamed Salah as well as an own goal to start the game from Southampton's Wesley Hoedt.

"I lost seven games in a row once, that felt different", Klopp, who watched his side reclaim top spot in the Premier League, said.

Klopp brought on James Milner at the break as Liverpool eased to victory to maintain their flawless Premier League record and he explained his choice in a post-match news conference.

After a fantastic game at Anfield on Tuesday, supporters will be excited to see more thrilling football and hopefully the side Klopp has selected can get the job done without any major drama. You saw the free-kick, it was outstanding.

"The whole team was not used to the system today and as a new player usually you struggle most, but he didn't". He tried everything, the only problem was defensive.

Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that Virgil van Dijk did not suffer a serious rib injury during Liverpool's 3-0 win over Southampton and confirmed Xherdan Shaqiri was taken off at half-time for tactical reasons.

"He already had a bruise in the ribs before the PSG game, which is very uncomfortable and he got another hit there", the manager explained. He said he couldn't shout any more, so that's obviously 60 per cent less of his level.

Kylian Mbappe nearly helped salvage a point for his side but Liverpool's talismanic Brazilian ensured Klopp's side picked up a win in their first game of the 2018/19 Champions League campaign.

He was denied a second for offside in the 89th minute after Mario Lamina had cleared James Milner's shot off the line.
