Jurgen Klopp’s side after securing their 5th win in the Champions League over Porto in midweek returned with an impressive display at home.
In what was their 13th game of the season, Liverpool put on a show as they thrashed Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
Jota who was a doubt for the game secured a brace, while Thiago netted for the second game running before Van Dijk grabbed a fourth to put the icing on the cake for the Reds.
While Jota will steal the headlines for his goals, Trent Alexander will deserve some praise for making an impossible history.
The right back has been in fine form and reached a great milestone with his assist for Van Dijk’s goal.
With that assist Arnold bagged his 40th assist in the Premier League and did so incredibly in just few games.
Below is the highest assists made by defenders in the Premier League:
