Here's a bite-sized breakdown of the weekend's action, including reaction to Liverpool's latest win, your response to the Reds' incredible opening goal, how our rivals fared and more...

Mohamed Salah bagged a brace and Roberto Firmino collected a hat-trick of assists as Liverpool beat Southampton 4-0 at Anfield on Saturday to move 22 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Firmino's inventive back-heel teed up Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to drill home the opener shortly after half-time and captain Jordan Henderson doubled the lead on the hour from a clever pass by the Brazilian.

Salah made it 3-0 with dink over Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and completed the scoring with a close-range finish from his strike partner's unselfish cut-back in the 90th minute.

What they said...

Jürgen Klopp: "First and foremost, I really have to say, wow, Southampton – what a team that is. The set-up they have is constantly causing you problems. We had to change two or three things, most importantly we had to change the involvement of Fabinho – switch the side with him, pass the ball there. Then we started rolling. With this positioning we used all the midfielders better, used our full-backs better and had better direction. It was just a better game and in the end we won it."

Oxlade-Chamberlain: "Firmino does those magnificent things all the time. I love him, I absolutely love him. He's such a joy to play with and to feed off. He's always looking for others, he works for the team and his skills speak for themselves. He's a top man and we all love him. I'm delighted to have scored a couple of goals in the last two games, but it's about us all and making sure that we chip in where we can and finish the season strong now."
