  • Liverpool get back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Southampton but it comes at a price as Suarez picks up a booking which will result in a suspension. After a dominant, although not inspiring, performance, Liverpool got the goal which proved to be the winner through Agger's 43rd minute header. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.


    90 + 4
  • Sterling breaks forward against two Southampton defenders. He is held up from Suarez's pass and then gives the ball away when attempting a reverse pass to Gerrard. Another wasted chance.

    90 + 3
  • Carragher is booked after a clumsy challenge on Rodriguez, when he wrapped his boot around the waist of the Southampton forward.

    90 + 2
  • Southampton's players look out on their feet. They are making a lot of mistakes after spending a lot of the game chasing the ball.

    90 + 1
  • ADDED TIME: After Suarez shoots just wide, there will be a minimum of three minutes added time before the final whistle.

  • Lucas got a standing ovation when he went off but understandably looked very tired.

  • Lucas' return to the action ends. He had some good defensive moments but looked rusty on the ball. Carragher comes on in his place.

  • Liverpool's midfield is very far forward in these closing minutes. Rodgers does not appear concerned about a possible late sucker-punch.

  • Southampton break down the right but it comes to nothing. Liverpool counter-attack and Gazzaniga cannot gather. Yoshida has to be alert to clear the rebound when Suarez was lurking.

  • Liverpool remain on the attack but they have not posed a serious threat to Gazzaniga.

  • Good block from Agger after Lambert had a split-second view of the goal inside the penalty area.

  • Liverpool's set-pieces have again been poor today and another corner on the right is cleared at the near post.

  • Rodgers will have a big decision on what to do with his attacking options against West Ham.

  • Suarez is rightly booked for his handball and that is his fifth booking of the season. He will now miss the game against Southampton due to suspension. It was an instinctive handling off the ball from Suarez but was still foolish.

  • Enrique produces a brilliant pirouette to beat two Southampton players. Liverpool remain on the attack. Gerrard gets to the goalline and squares for Suarez but the ball deflects over the bar. From the replay it is clear Suarez handled the ball.

  • This has not been a classic game. Liverpool have done enough and nothing more. Southampton came set up to take a draw and have had no 'Plan B' so far in their search for an equaliser.

  • Puncheon is off and is replaced by Rodriguez.

  • Enrique's cross-shot is punched away by Gazzaniga but Liverpool remain on the attack. Johnson hits a left-foot, 20-yard effort wide of the target.

  • Liverpool break forward but Henderson, worrying about being offside, has to check his run and is then caught flatfooted from Sterling's pass inside the box.
