Liverpool ensured the Premier League title race will go to the final day of the season as the understrength quadruple chasers survived a scare to beat Southampton 2-1 on Tuesday.
After Liverpool defeated Chelsea on penalties in a gruelling FA Cup final just three days earlier, Jurgen Klopp took a gamble with nine changes at St Mary’s.
Despite effectively fielding a reserve team and trailing to Nathan Redmond’s early strike, Liverpool hit back through goals from Takumi Minamino and Joel Matip.

Heading into the break, it’s 1-1 between Southampton and Liverpool.
