By Chimezie Nebolisa

Goals from Darwin Nunez and Roberto Firmino helped Liverpool to down Southampton with a 3-1 home win in the Premier League on Saturday.

The victory took Liverpool into sixth place in the league standings on 22 points after 14 matches.

Firmino put Liverpool in front in the sixth minute by glancing an Andy Robertson free kick into the net.

Moments later Southampton replied through Che Adams, who rose to head in James Ward-Prowse's set-piece delivery and score the club's first goal under new manager Nathan Jones.

Uruguay international Nunez restored Liverpool's lead in the 21st minute by volleying home a cross from 19-year-old midfielder Harvey Elliot.

The Uruguayan then grabbed his second goal three minutes before halftime, meeting another cross from Robertson from close range.
