The Reds entered the Capital One Cup semi-finals in style, defeating Southampton 6-1 at St.Mary’s Stadium on Wednesday, with Daniel Sturridge getting a brace and Belgian youngster Divock Origi scoring a hat-trick
Liverpool FC’s revival under JA?rgen Klopp continued as the Reds took apart a shell-shocked Southampton side 6-1, despite the hosts taking a very early lead in the match. England international Daniel Sturridge started the game after his return from injury, and scored a first-half brace to put the Merseysiders in a commanding position at the break.
Belgian Divock Origi, who scored right at the stroke of half-time, added two more in the second half to complete his hat-trick and pile further misery upon what was a strong Southampton line-up on Wednesday.
Liverpool FC fans on cloud nine after Capital One Cup rout
If new manager JA?rgen Klopp had still not won over some Reds supporters, this result might very well have done the trick. Even though Liverpool FC still look ponderous and restrained at Anfield, their away performances have made the world sit up and take notice.
The 3-1 win at Stamford Bridge and the 4-1 destruction of Manchester City at the Etihad has now been followed up by yet another spectacular away performance. Liverpool FC fans were understandably over the moon with the result, as well as with the return of Daniel Sturridge.
Here are some of the best tweets from the game.
This Klopp fella has done some job in such a short space of time at Liverpool. Amazing what a top coach can do. Got them all at it.

I’m glad I gave Klopp the right tools to do the job. It’s like building 100 floors of a sky scraper and then letting him finish the roof

Jurgen Klopp: the man who is making Liverpool’s infamous transfer committee look hugely competent.

This isn’t even Klopp’s squad yet, that’s the scary thing, just imagine when he signs his own players over several transfer windows. #LFC
