Southampton - Liverpool recovered from conceding inside the first minute to thrash Southampton 6-1 away in the League Cup quarter-finals as Jurgen Klopp's impressive start as manager continued.

Divock Origi scored a hat trick - his first goals for Liverpool - after fellow striker Daniel Sturridge marked his latest return from injury with goals in the 25th and 29th minutes to spark the comeback.

Jordon Ibe also netted as Liverpool reached a record 16th League Cup semi-final, joining Manchester City, Everton and Stoke in the last four.

Sadio Mane put Southampton in front at St. Mary's Stadium.
