“We needed Loris Karius to save our lives two or three times,” Klopp said, per BBC Sport.

“The best thing for us is the result. We know that we can play better at Anfield – nothing is decided.

“We cannot be happy with the performance, Southampton cannot be happy with the result. It could and should have been 2-0, 3-0.”

Milner did his best Phil Jones impression

There was just one moment in the game that had Liverpool fans laughing.

It arrived after James Milner fell over while trying to control the ball. Under pressure from a Southampton player, and with his limbs out of use, the former England international decided to control the ball with his face.
