       Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp spoke of his side's power and energy ahead of a trip to Southampton on Frid

Before Friday night's match away at Southampton Salah, last season's Golden Boot victor, had gone eight games without a goal.

Liverpool sit two points ahead of current champions Manchester City at the top of the table, who have a game in hand with six matches remaining.

Then, when Henderson himself got on the end of a flowing Liverpool move to seal the 3-1 win, his celebrations took on an iconic quality - the sort of image journalists turn to when they seek to deconstruct a title triumph.

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.

Jurgen Klopp has hailed Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson after his game-changing display against Southampton on Friday night.

The Egypt global had been stuck on 49 Premier League goals since the 26-year-old found the net in a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth at the start of February.

Yet, on this occasion he chose the right option despite the presence of Roberto Firmino in support.

"But in the moment they probably didn't think if it was in or whatever, I didn't see it back, but that's probably the reason".

"I just took my decision to shoot the ball and score".

A frantically paced match continued and Liverpool finally found an equaliser on 36 minutes when Naby Keita scored his first goal for the club, powering a back-post header from an Alexander-Arnold cross into the back of the net.

But off the ball he is creating chances for the likes of Firmino and Mane to score, by dragging more players on to him.

"People want us to play like Manchester City, we are unable to do that, we play our own football".

Liverpool move on to 82 points and return to top spot in the Premier League. So he can be really proud.

"It is a hard year for everybody".

We are witnessing one of the great title races in Premier League history.

Klopp acknowledged the introduction of Henderson and James Milner midway through the second half fired up Liverpool's late rally. Jordan Henderson came on and brought aggressiveness, verbal aggressiveness, we had direction again after that.

"[We] work for the moment, not wait for the moment".

Naby Keita's has showed his competency in Liverpool's midfield, but his maiden campaign in a Red shirt has been rather underwhelming. After that we controlled it more.

"When I came in and thought first about the team, Hendo was a box-to-box player", Klopp said.
