Jordan Henderson couldnt resist having a dig at Gary Neville after Liverpool came from behind to beat Southampton 3-1 to return to the top of the Premier League table.
Shane Long slotted past Alisson from the close-range to break the deadlock in the 9th minute at St Marys before Naby Keita headed home to pull Liverpool level just before half-time.
Ralph Hasenhuttls men looked set to put a massive dent in Liverpools title hopes with the scoreline still 1-1 deep into the second half, but Mohamed Salah ended his run of six league matches without a goal to put the visitors in front with ten minutes remaining.
Liverpool captain Henderson put the icing on the cake for Jurgen Klopps side with a well-taken strike in the 86th minute and the England midfielder was understandably in a jovial mood after the final whistle.
Manchester United legend Neville revealed to Sky Sports: Jordan Henderson came over to me at the end of the game and said “you dont look very happy”. And I said “Im not Jordan”.
I feel cold [about title race] because Ive not got a particular favourite between either side to win the title.
I am sat there thinking its an inevitability. Once they got control and hold of the game.
I just asked five seconds before what odds Liverpool were to win the game. Ive never felt so sure that Liverpool were going to win the game.
It just felt like it was absolutely going to happen.
Henderson praised Liverpools character to come from behind and seal a crucial three points away from home.
We know every game is massive for us, he explained.
We know weve got to win every game so tonight was another big game. 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.
And then to come out and win in the second half I thought was a big performance and a big result.
