Claude Puel’s well-drilled defense managed to keep the in-form Liverpool team from scoring in a frustrating outing for the Reds.
The result meant Liverpool maintained their position at top of the table with 27 points, but could end the week at the second spot if Chelsea emerge victorious on Sunday.
Perfectly adequate point that, against a very well-drilled team. Understandably rusty at times, especially Coutinho. We go again. #LFC

You can clearly see who’s had the most and least minute on Brazil duty this game. Firmino everywhere, Coutinho looks tired.

That Firmino chance is still haunting me though, awful miss
— The Redmen (@LiamLFCButler) November 19, 2016
Honestly would have bet my student loan on Firmino scoring that chance

We bossed them. Created chance after chance.
Couldn’t find the net, it happens. We move on.

Firmino missed the best chance today, but he had as many shots as Southampton (3) and created more chances than them too (3-2).

“Liverpool struggle against a defensively solid side again”
On another day, if the front three have their shooting boots on, that’s 3/4-0

A rain-soaked away field for the #souliv 0-0 draw today. The clean sheet keeps us tied at the top of the table for now…

Matip and Lovren outstanding today. Matip barely wasted a pass, never flustered, read the game, fantastic. Lovren showed what he was made of

4th EPL game in 12 where the LFC goalkeeper has made ZERO saves
— Dan Kennett (@DanKennett) November 19, 2016
In many ways a frustrating 0-0, in others the respect shown to Klopp’s side spoke volumes about progress made. All out defence from Saints.

Joint top of the league and we’re still finding plenty to complain about. Those are the standards Klopp has set.

Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk was subject of unanimous praise after his solid display against Liverpool.
I can’t get over how good Virgil van Dijk has been this season for Southampton. Easily the best centre-back in the Premier League right now.
— Liam Canning (@LiamPaulCanning) November 19, 2016
All over at St Mary’s, and Southampton hold Liverpool to a goalless draw. Virgil van Dijk man of the match by miles.
— Paddy Power (@paddypower) November 19, 2016
I don’t care what you say, Virgil van Dijk has been better than any central defender in the world this season. World class.
— Chief. (@WxrdProwse) November 19, 2016
If Jose Mourinho wants a new centre-back, and I suspect he does, a move for Virgil van Dijk wouldn’t go amiss. The man is a colossus.
— Iain Macintosh (@iainmacintosh) November 19, 2016
If we do our annual raid on Southampton this summer then Virgil van Dijk wouldn’t be a bad shout.
— Kloppite (@PeteKopite) November 19, 2016
If Conte’s looking to buy a defender in the summer then we should definitely try to sign Van Dijk
— ️ (@HazardEdition) November 19, 2016
Right Van Dijk you’ve got your Liverpool move now enough messing about and score that own goal to seal the deal

Could do without Van Dijk being better than Maldini, tbh
