Twitter: Liverpool players react to 3-0 victory over Southampton
Liverpool moved second in the Premier League table after the Reds earned an emphatic 3-0 victory over Southampton at the St. Mary’s.
As a result of this victory, Liverpool are now second in the table behind Chelsea, and are trailing by just four points, with 10 games left.
Luis Suarez, the top scorer in the Premier League, opened the scoring for the Reds in the 16th minute of the match, though he was bit fortunate to get the ball in the box, in the build-up to the goal.
The home side responded strongly and created very good chances, but the Reds defence stayed resolute. After the break, Rodgers introduced Raheem Sterling in place of Coutinho and the England international made an instant impact, giving the Reds a healthy 2-0 lead.
Suarez was involved again in that move as this time he bagged an assist for himself. In the dying seconds of the match, the Uruguayan earned a penalty which skipper Steven Gerrard duly converted.
After the match, Liverpool players, fans and journalists shared their feelings on twitter. We take a look at some of them.
Great win and solid performance from the lads. #Massive3Points
