    Liverpool trying to conjure something up but Robertson's switch can't produce anything meaningful.

  • 28'

    Liverpool go down the flank again and Vestergaard has to be alive to clear away Alexander-Arnold's cross. An entertaining 30 minutes of football so far. Both teams playing some attractive football.

    Matip blocks a shot from Hojbjerg. Saints certainly like they're going to leave it all out there tonight. Four shots already for the home side.

  • 23'

    Better build up from the Reds but Saints remain organized in defense and manage to clear.
