Leaders Liverpool beaten at Southampton

Danny Ings scores
Danny Ings’ goal was his 50th in the Premier League with 36 coming for Southampton

Liverpool’s Premier League title defence suffered a setback as they fell to their second loss of the season at Southampton.

Danny Ings’ superb second-minute lob over Reds goalkeeper Alisson, from a James Ward-Prowse free-kick, settled the contest against his former club.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side remain top of the table on goal difference but have taken only two points from the past nine available.

Both Manchester United and Manchester City will leapfrog the reigning champions if they win their games in hand.

Southampton’s first win in five Premier League games sees them rise to sixth.
