Adrian doubtful for Liverpool after being injured by celebrating fan

Chelsea lead in the first half through Olivier Giroud but Sadio Mane scored twice to give Liverpool the lead.

Liverpool made it two wins from two to start the season following a 2-1 victory at Southampton on Saturday, equalling a club record of 11 successive Premier League victories.

After Liverpool's European triumph in Istanbul over Chelsea, the Reds went in search of three points against Southampton on Saturday. I was happy with everything he did today, all the saves he made, all the other stuff.

After all, the Saints almost dealt Liverpool a severe title blow last season when the Reds were forced to push themselves to their physical limits to overcome Hassenhuttl's impressive side in an entertaining 3-1 win to help the Reds on their way to the club's record-breaking 97 points tally last season.

"I don't think the goal was because of his ankle problem, but if you saw his ankle on Thursday you would say he had no chance to play in this game".

Klopp said: "There's no doubt about how much we love our fans, there's no doubt about that at all, but if they all could stop doing that - that's the worst example we have so far heard about".

Liverpool are already without normal number one Alisson Becker due to a calf injury picked up in the Premier League season opener against Norwich and could have to cope without the Brazilian for up to two months.

Jurgen Klopp said that Southampton probably celebrated more than Liverpool after the UEFA Super Cup triumph last Wednesday, "nobody wanted extra time tonight". If I got the message that he wasn't fine then I would have had a decision to make.

Four minutes before the halftime whistle, Salah received the ball behind the Saints' defence, however, his shot went over the bar. I said before the game if we had come here with two weeks' preparation it would have been hard.

Southampton will have a fully fit squad for the game, according to a report published by BBC Sport. We controlled the game, we were fluent, all that stuff and then with the long balls and set-pieces Southampton came up then.

Klopp's men had been lucky to be in front at half-time, but they should have been home and hosed by the hour mark as they found their attacking groove early in the second half and missed some big chances.
