A superb second-minute lob simply by Danny Ings against his former golf club gave Southampton a surprise 1-0 home win over Premier Group leaders Liverpool, with the Reds' attack looking rudderless because they were held scoreless for the second video game in a row.
Ings, who have joined Southampton on loan from Liverpool in 2018 prior to making the transfer long lasting a year soon after, gave his area the lead seeing as he latched on to James Ward-Prowse's free of charge kick before sending a good deft left-footed lob over Alisson in to the net.
Liverpool, who drew 0-0 in Newcastle United, did not manage a single shot on target found in the opening 45 moments but then dominated the second half.
However, a concerted effort by the massed ranks of Southampton's defence kept them out.
The victory lifts Southampton to sixth in the table on 29 points, behind Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea on goal difference, while Liverpool stay top on 33 points ahead of Manchester United, who've a game at hand, on goal difference.
