Nathan Redmond’s Superb Curler Ends Liverpool’s Championship Chances
Liverpool fans have been lamenting the fact that their team has an almost impossible job on the final day of the season, hoping that Manchester City slip up against Aston Villa.
Yet if they fail to do their homework against Southampton, it would all be futile anyway.
Should Liverpool pick up a point, it would be all but over too, as an eight-goal swing would occur by virtue of a victory and a City defeat anyway. In reality, only a win will do for Jurgen Klopp.
The German manager has made nine changes to the side that beat Chelsea in the FA Cup final and has gone for fresh legs to try and combat Southampton’s intense style.
If they are to get the win, though, they will have to do it the hard way. After just 13 minutes, Nathan Redmond cut in on his right and let loose a curling effort into the top corner and beyond Alisson. even if it did take a slight deflection off James Milner’s leg.
Liverpool now have to mount a comeback in the knowledge that defeat will seal the fate of the title. Something which will suit Southampton’s counter-attack well.
