Liverpool has taken the Premier League title race down to the final day of the season by coming from behind to defeat Southampton 2-1.

Nathan Redmond gave Southampton a 13th-minute lead with a curling right-foot shot beyond Alisson.

Liverpool once again showed their resilience and reserves of strength as Takumi Minamino levelled before half-time with a thumping drive.

The pressure built after the break and Liverpool took a deserved lead after 67 minutes when Joel Matip sent an instinctive looping header over Saints’ keeper Alex McCarthy.
