Mauricio Pellegrino has conceded that Liverpool were "too much" to handle as Southampton lost 2-0 at St Mary's Stadium on Sunday.

The Dutchman was jeered by the home support following his £75 million ($104 million) move to Anfield last month, but got his revenge by sending a toothless Saints side tumbling into the relegation zone, and claiming his first Premier League win since becoming the world's most expensive defender. Not a lot of people pegged him as the 20-goal-a-season striker Liverpool supposedly needed but, here we are in February, and Firmino has 20 goals.

And this is how things stayed for the remainder of the clash, with the Saints struggling to create clear-cut goalscoring opportunities over the course of the second-half, whereas Liverpool could easily have added to their goal tally through the likes of Salah, Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Jürgen Klopp may choose to rest some of his star players ahead of Liverpool's Champions League match with Porto next week, but it will still be a strong side.

In terms of form, Liverpool have had a mixed start to the new year with league wins away at Burnley and Huddersfield as well as becoming the first side to beat runaway league leaders Manchester City domestically this season.

If Klopp needs to try to change the game at any point this afternoon on the south coast then he can look to his bench, with options available including Adam Lallana and Danny Ings.

He said it reinforces the view that the Bank of Canada will proceed "ultra-cautiously" through the rest of 2018. The province of Saskatchewan boasts the second best unemployment rate in the country according to Stats Canada.

Firmino slotted his ensuing finish home with aplomb, before the Reds' brilliant attacking duo combined once again to double Liverpool's lead shortly before half-time. I don't think nine points from Arsenal is enough to have rest but it is nine points.
