7:26pm

That's three defeats on the spin for Saints, who ended up being well beaten by an outstanding Liverpool side. The hosts had their moments in the first half, but the visitors undoubtedly deserved the three points. Saints remain ninth in the Premier League and will be back in action next Saturday, when they visit Crystal Palace. Thanks for joining us today. We'll have a full match report and reaction for you on the website shortly.

Liverpool (56 mins): Philippe Coutinho off, Raheem Sterling on.

6:41pm

6:17pm

SAINTS 0 LIVERPOOL 1

6:16pm

CHANCE (43 mins): Simon Mignolet makes an outstanding save to deny Jay Rodriguez. Luke Shaw goes on a wonderful run down the left and plays a low ball into the box.

Daily Echo:

6:05pm

CHANCE (32 mins): Jay Rodriguez sends in a cross from the right following nice work with Calum Chambers.

5:58pm

CHANCE (26 mins): Luke Shaw advances down the left and plays a ball into the feet of Rickie Lambert, just inside the area. Lambert takes it on the bounce, but his right-footed effort is well off target.

CHANCE (22 mins): Jack Cork slides in and fouls Luis Suarez on the edge of the D. The Liverpool striker takes the subsequent free-kick, but fires it a few yards over the bar.

5:49pm

SAINTS 0 LIVERPOOL 1 (Luis Suarez 16)

A bit unfortunate for Saints, as Adam Lallana tackles Daniel Sturridge just outside the area, only to see the ball subsequently hit Jose Fonte and drop right into the path of Suarez, who produces a brilliant first-time finish to beat Artur Boruc.

5:48pm

Jay Rodriguez is disposessed by Liverpool's Martin Skrtel.

Daily Echo:

5:46pm

PENALTY APPEAL (14 mins): Adam Lallana plays a one-two with Steven Davis and, as he tries to latch onto the pass in the area, he goes to ground after Jon Flanagan bundles into him. It never looked as though the Saints captain would reach the ball, and referee Lee Probert simply awards a goal kick to the visitors.

 

5:42pm

CHANCE (9 mins): Jay Rodriguez tries to burst through the middle, but overruns the ball. Daniel Agger goes to clear, but thumps the ball against the legs of the Saints forward, with it flying just wide of the post. Play is stopped for a minute, as Luke Shaw received treatment following a clash of heads with Jon Flanagan in the build-up to the opportunity.

5:39pm

CHANCE (6 mins): Brilliant defending from Jose Fonte denies Liverpool and Luis Suarez a certain goal. Joe Allen plays a stunning pass over the top of the Saints defence, with Daniel Sturridge sprinting clear of Dejan Lovren to latch onto it. He squares the ball to Suarez for a tap in, but Fonte storms back in to make a last-ditch sliding interception.

5:30pm

Referee Lee Probert gets the match underway.

4:46pm

Daily Echo: Dejan Lovren celebrates his winner

Dejan Lovren returns to Saints' starting line-up today, for the first time since injuring ankle ligaments in the 2-2 draw at Sunderland in mid-February. Liverpool might not be too pleased to see the centre-half back, though. Lovren scored the winner when the sides met at Anfield earlier in the season. He is pictured above celebrating his goal.

4:42pm

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers had some kind words to say about Saints when he addressed the media this week. Here is a clip from his press conference...

4:34pm

Dejan Lovren comes back into the team for his first game since getting injured at Sunderland on January 18 with Maya Yoshida, who scored in the 3-1 defeat at West Ham last week, dropping to the bench. That is the only change to the Saints starting line-up.

Jos Hooiveld misses out on a place on the bench with an eye injury but Victor Wanyama is fit after recovering from a leg injury.

Paulo Gazzaniga is the sub keeper rather than Kelvin Davis who has a hamstring problem.

4:32pm

TEAMS

SAINTS: Boruc, Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw, Schneiderlin, Cork, S Davis, Lallana, Rodriguez, Lambert.

Subs: Gazzaniga, Clyne, Yoshida, Wanyama, Ward-Prowse, Ramirez, Gallagher.

LIVERPOOL: Mignolet, Johnson, Flanagan, Agger, Skrtel, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Coutinho, Sturridge, Suarez.

Subs: Jones, Toure, Cissokho, Moses, Aspas, Sterling, Teixeira.

Ref: Lee Probert

Hello and welcome to this Daily Echo blog covering this evening's contest between Saints and Liverpool, at St Mary's. This is always a highly anticipated fixture, which has produced some fantastic games over the years. Saints are hoping to complete the double over the Reds this season, after beating them 1-0 at Anfield earlier in the campaign. However, Brendan Rodgers' side are in exceptional form, with an eight-match unbeaten streak pushing them back into contention for the title. Liverpool are top scorers in this season's Premier League and boast the division's two leading marksmen - Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge - but Saints are a free-scoring team themselves. This promises to be a good one. Stay with us for build-up, team news and match updates.

Actually she has no "overall holdings". As I have been telling you for nearly 2 years now, the companies she inherited have been liquidated, despite their ownership of lucrative patents in the field of engine design, which were the fruit of her father's engineering genius. Kit Kat has no independent achievements of her own, but just lives off the wealth she inherited.

I think sometimes you have to accept that you've been beaten by a smarter and more clinical team. This is the case tonight but no shame at all as it's only happened a few times this season. If you're at all deflated by the result tonight then you need to have a quiet word with yourself to be honest.

We're having a brilliant season and we all know that a central defender and striker are top of our shopping list this summer.

Just a shame we couldn't really turn it on with Roy watching (although it sounds like our boys did well) and let rat boy score.

Midfield. Why isn't Lambert scoring? He is forced to drop deep and look for the ball because there is no service. and Gallagher was just doing the same thing in the last ten minutes. The midfield is a shambles on this team. Lambert is going whole games without one decent chance because he has no service. Unfortunately, Jay seems to be rushing everything now and making poor decisions, but he'll be alright with time. Get Lallana and Ramirez off the pitch, put in Ward-Prowse, and, if Wanyama (even though he can't pass) can stay on the pitch (thanks, Victor, from the bottom of my heart for doing Suarez!), then he has to play over Cork. I like Cork, but he is absolutely killing the attack. I'm sorry boys, but Lallana is just getting in everyone's way out there and giving the ball away with low-percentage fancy flicks, when he's not being shoved out of the way by the men on the other side. You know, Liverpool are not a great defending team, but they got a clean sheet today. Skrtel is an OK, but not great, defender but he wasn't even bothered today. I know Poch, "we were really unlucky not to get a result." Open your eyes, amigo. Learn something about the English game or pack your bags.
Midfield. Why isn't Lambert scoring? He is forced to drop deep and look for the ball because there is no service. and Gallagher was just doing the same thing in the last ten minutes. The midfield is a shambles on this team. Lambert is going whole games without one decent chance because he has no service.

THE LADS KEPT GOING TODAY - we are a very good side but need to invest in more quality.

At this level - Jose is not consistent and struggles - but he is the best we have at the moment.

Gaston adds energy but is wayward with his passes all too often.

WE TRY and thread the ball through to get goals - but need more penetration for our possession - AND SHOTS ON TARGET TO TEST THE GOALKEEPER.

PALACE UP NEXT - ALL SOLD OUT.

Last time at Dellhurst Park - we took 6000 and owned the streets. WE MUST. UP OUR PASSION AND GET A RESULT next week.

RED ARMY. 2014
WE FIGHT FOR POINTS AND THE WINS.

agree with little hitler that suarez was the difference. we weren't outplayed but they were able to capitalise on our mistakes. we had some great chances with lalla hitting the post and a great save to stop J-rod. lets be honest though scouse are a top 4 team for a reason. if we want to break into the top 4/6 we all know that a 20+ a season striker is whats needed, but that has to wait for the summer.
scouse were worried enough to start time wasting in the 50th min and the final score flattered them.
lalla had another great game as did chambers and most of the team to be honest.
mentally challenged has again only turned up when we were losing, has abused both players and fans again, calling fans `happy-clappers` and `clowns` and two of our players `girls` one who he also called a `fairy` who wears a `skirt`, I think that tell you all you need to know about him!

Liverpool tonight showed just how difficult it is going to be to progress to the top 6 let alone top 4. At times our football can best be described as pretty but totally ineffective. The stats prove it. 57% possession, 13 shots against 12, 2 on target against 5, 0 goals but 3 against. It has been like this on numerous occasions this season. MoPo has to find a way of turning possession into goals, otherwise the season could peter out to a very disappointing end. This would not bode well for some of our stars who could well decide to move on during the summer. Tonight only Lallana showed any real international class with the odd glimpse of class from Shaw.

pick up your toys and put them back in your cot.
The mid and backs are getting the ball in the box but our finishing is poor.
I think changes will come in the summer. Jay hasn't done enough for Brazil and Rickie though providing some wonderful balls is off his edge in the box.. They must take chances that come their way against Denmark.
We are still up there.. that was one of the best Liverpool teams in 30 years.. so get a grip, keep feet on the ground and stop moaning and slagging.

Also we all probably had to high expectations early in the season,before teams had worked out MP style of play.

. The Osvaldo mistake has cost us a lot this season and probably the reason Cortese had to leave. No club can afford to waste £15 million and get nothing in return. I get the feeling MoPo is just seeing things through to the end of the season and he'll be off. I hope the new CE has got someone in mind because he has a hard act to follow.

Spot on. At present we are struggling - and we are being sussed out over the second half of the season as all new PL club do.

I personally think that the next 2 games against lower ranking opposition will tell us a lot on how we will finish this season. If we don't stabilise soon - we will do well to finish in the top ten; and that may send out messages to other PL clubs to try to get few of our best players

That is my fear. A poor end to the season could see KL reluctant to spend, MoPo becoming disillusioned and moving on this starting an exodus of players with KL keen to recoup some of her father's investment. I know a little dramatic but very possible.

Actually she has no "overall holdings". As I have been telling you for nearly 2 years now, the companies she inherited have been liquidated, despite their ownership of lucrative patents in the field of engine design, which were the fruit of her father's engineering genius. Kit Kat has no independent achievements of her own, but just lives off the wealth she inherited. It's true that she seems to be enjoying attending a few games recently, despite the fact that she had no previous interest in football, but she will soon get bored with that. What then?
None of your business however but you are welcome to go away and worry about it on your own.

Luck and poor finishing cost us.... again.
Thought J-Rod was very good. Shaw was poor until they got the break. Lallana is class but does get tackled quite easy when closed down. Rickie is struggling. Lovren was solid. Chambers worked well. Cork was fantastic. Spider did his shift well. Boruc was the best we have. Fonte nearly screwed up but recovered well before harshly given a penalty against him. My biggest critism was the change at half time. Why change things when it was looking like we could win it? Davis was doing well, Ramirez did not. Poor by MoPo (IMO). Then they go two up and he changes nothing for 20mins? He's our great boss but, sorry, think he got that wrong today.
When was the last time we had some luck in a game?
Still a few more cheers and watch the Poopey few struggle in the depths of some 4th division.
Proud of our season, proud to be a Saint

if KL is keeping the club, and lets be honest theres nothing to say she wont apart from media speculation, a poor end to the season might be what MP needs to show her that money needs to be spent.
there is always a worry that we will lose some of our best players and I don't think it will matter how high we finish. if we finish 8th or 6th it wont mean anything to the players if chelski, manure etc. offer £30mill+ for them with the chance of playing champs league winning the prem and being on £100k+ a week. it all depends on whether the player wants to stay and how determined we are to keep them.

I know what you mean; but I think players like Chambers would stay with a top 8 finish - whereas Lallana and perhaps Shaw will just move on anyway based on career development, regularly playing with England Collages and more money. We really need another 8-10k on our stadium to move this club up to the next level.

Liverpool tonight showed just how difficult it is going to be to progress to the top 6 let alone top 4. At times our football can best be described as pretty but totally ineffective. The stats prove it. 57% possession, 13 shots against 12, 2 on target against 5, 0 goals but 3 against. It has been like this on numerous occasions this season. MoPo has to find a way of turning possession into goals, otherwise the season could peter out to a very disappointing end. This would not bode well for some of our stars who could well decide to move on during the summer. Tonight only Lallana showed any real international class with the odd glimpse of class from Shaw.
I don't think any season where we are more than likely to finish in the top 10 will be a disappointment.
how can you claim lalla showed any class? have you learnt nothing from mentally challenged? ;0)
we`ve had a slight blip but will bounce back next week at palace.
we need to hit more shots from outside the box, that might bring more goals with some coming from deflections and rebounds etc.
How can you say "a slight blip". Out of the last 17 matches we have had just 4 wins all against teams threatened with relegation. 17 points from 17 games - that is relegation form so let's be realistic it is more than just a slight blip.
Spot on. At present we are struggling - and we are being sussed out over the second half of the season as all new PL club do.

I personally think that the next 2 games against lower ranking opposition will tell us a lot on how we will finish this season. If we don't stabilise soon - we will do well to finish in the top ten; and that may send out messages to other PL clubs to try to get few of our best players
That is my fear. A poor end to the season could see KL reluctant to spend, MoPo becoming disillusioned and moving on this starting an exodus of players with KL keen to recoup some of her father's investment. I know a little dramatic but very possible.
KL may already have her plans for the club. One thing is or sure; the higher we finish the higher the chances of keeping some of our quality players if there is a movement of our players to the big six in the summer.
if KL is keeping the club, and lets be honest theres nothing to say she wont apart from media speculation, a poor end to the season might be what MP needs to show her that money needs to be spent.
there is always a worry that we will lose some of our best players and I don't think it will matter how high we finish. if we finish 8th or 6th it wont mean anything to the players if chelski, manure etc. offer £30mill+ for them with the chance of playing champs league winning the prem and being on £100k+ a week. it all depends on whether the player wants to stay and how determined we are to keep them.
but you see I am a proud badge wearing happy clapper so I always see the positives in saints, especially the world class attacking midfielder we had on the pitch today (just in case mentally challenged doesn't know I`m talking about lalla)
I know what you mean; but I think players like Chambers would stay with a top 8 finish - whereas Lallana and perhaps Shaw will just move on anyway based on career development, regularly playing with England Collages and more money. We really need another 8-10k on our stadium to move this club up to the next level.
I know someone who went on the sms tour last season and he was told that there were plans to build up to 45k this summer, I don't know if that's going to happen now, but you never know.
NC`s vision was a reason that players gave when they signed or signed new contracts, I hope KL has put people in charge who can continue that vision, or have a new better vision.
all the talk in the media hen NC left was that KL wanted to sell instantly, that didn't happen. she may well sell in the future but she may want to keep the club as a tribute to her farther. what better way to commemorate your dad than to build the club, that he took to his heart, up to a major player.
skating keeps telling us that she has liquidated all his other firms, I don't know if this is true or not, but if she has why has she kept saints? I don't know what she wants to do but I hope, and that's the point, that she wants to keep us and build us up. you never know where we could be in 5 years, and we said that 5 years ago!

the Southampton ways so much better than the poopey way though isn't it! but then anything is better than the poopey way, going into admin three times and freefalling from the prem to the bottom of L2 in just a few years. still owing millions even after stealing from anyone and everyone. oh and then being in a relegation dogfight hoping to stay in the leagues. having to be bought by the fans (still don't control the club though) after being in admin for over a year because no one else wanted you!

Poopey????? Really? ;-)
Nice post though for a young child.
Don't go getting yourself all wound up now.

Relegation fodder next season for you i fear
