EPL: Liverpool continue winning streak, Everton stage comeback plus results of other matches

Liverpool continued their impressive winning streak on Saturday with an emphatic victory over Southampton at Anfield.

The victory sees them equalling Manchester City’s record of 20 consecutive wins at home in the Premier League.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored the opener just after half time – his second goal in as many league matches – when he drilled the ball low into the bottom corner.

Reds’ skipper Jordan Henderson made it 2-0 on the hour mark with a calm finish after being set up by Roberto Firmino.

Henderson then played in Mohamed Salah for Liverpool’s third and the Egypt forward added a fourth from close range in the last minute.

The scoreline was harsh on the visitors, who matched Liverpool for much of the first hour with Danny Ings going close in the first half and Shane Long also denied by Liverpool keeper Alisson.

The victory extends Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the league to 42 games and they now sit 22 points clear at the top of the table with second-placed Manchester City not playing until Sunday.

It was Southampton’s first away defeat in five games and they fall to 11th place.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals, Everton, came from two goals down to win 3-2 at Watford after Theo Walcott scored the winner at stoppage time
