Thiago Alcantara boosted Liverpool’s top four hopes with a late effort in their tie with Southampton, doubling the lead for the Reds with a long range goal.
Receiving the ball outside of the 18-yard-box, the 30-year-old dribbled past an opposition press before unleashing a wicked shot from 20 yards into the bottom right to seal the three points for Jurgen Klopp’s men.
The Spaniard’s effort was his first in 15 months, a run that stretched back to his time with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich – a drought he’ll no doubt have been aching to end.
Certainly, from our perspective, it’s a goal that’s provided some amount of relief in light of our recent, late capitulations.
