Liverpool battle back from a goal down to head back to the top of the Premier League with a 1-3 victory over Southampton.

In the second half it was looking like the Reds were going to have to share the points before Mo Salah and Jordan Henderson sent their side back to the top of the league with two late goals.

The goal was sweet relief for Salah who was on a run of eight games without scoring in all competitions and makes him the fastest Liverpool player to hit 50 in the Premier League in just 69 appearances.

And fans gleefully welcomed back their hero at a crucial time for the club's season.

The Reds hit Southampton with a blistering counter-attack as Salah carried the ball from inside his own half and turned down the chance to pass to Firmino in favour of whipping his finish into the bottom corner.

"I'm very happy to score a goal to help the team". That's the most important thing for us.

"I think as a striker you need to score".

The news comes ahead of India's general elections in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi is seeking reelection. The reaction from Pakistan was tweeted by Asif Ghafoor, spokesman for the Pakisatni military.

Southampton were left angry that Salah was not flagged offside in the build-up, but the ball eventually fell for Trent Alexander-Arnold and his in-swinging cross was met too powerfully with his head by Keita for Gunn to keep out.

Substitute Jordan Henderson tapped home a late third to seal the success after Naby Keita's first goal in English football cancelled out Shane Long's early opener for the in-form hosts.

Henderson also stated: "We know every game is massive for us".

He has seven wins and five draws in the 18 games since he arrived, and have won their last two games.

They have collected more points on the road than any other side in the Premier League, and one of the primary reasons for their lofty position. I thought the lads showed great character in the first half under a little bit of pressure, to come out of that and to go in 1-1 at half-time I thought was good for us. Tidy in possession and thankfully was not called on for much work in the second half.

A goal and assist represented a great cameo for the England worldwide, who give Liverpool more impetus and objective as they searched for their second of the game, before ending the game as a contest with a goal of his own late on. I am really proud.
