EFL CUP!! Southampton Beat Liverpool 1-0 In First Leg (Read)

Southampton hold a slender advantage in the EFL Cup semi-final after a fully deserved first-leg victory over Liverpool at St Mary’s.

Nathan Redmond’s cool finish from Jay Rodriguez’s pass gave Saints a crucial lead to take to Anfield on 25 January – but Southampton can count themselves unlucky not to be in complete control of this battle for a place at Wembley.

Liverpool’s much-criticised goalkeeper Loris Karius was one of very few in Jurgen Klopp’s side to distinguish himself amid a shocking performance, making two fine first-half saves from goalscorer Redmond.

Karius’s one-handed save from Redmond right on half-time was vital but he was helpless late on as the same player threatened once more, Liverpool enjoying more good fortune as his effort came back off the bar.
