Liverpool happy with performance despite team rotation

The impressive display by defender, Joel Matip and new recruit from Stoke City, Xherdan Shaqiri against Southampton has further reminded Jürgen Klopp that he can rotate his team and still get the desired results.

Matip was given a chance to start in the home game last weekend for the first time in six months and helped his team to their sixth consecutive Premier league win so far this season, going on to score the second goal in the 3-0 win.

Shaqiri, on the other hand, played very well in the first half in what was his first start for Liverpool, playing a vital role in the first and third goals for Liverpool before he was substituted at halftime.

Klopp was already sure that a change in his team would not affect their performance but he was happy to see a practical example of that in the comfortable win.

Shaq between the lines, I liked that. He was very influential and made two goals, very good ones. And Joel, it’s not a bad header! It helped, that’s fine.

And it’s good for us to know that we can make changes and still win football games. We knew it before, but sometimes you have to prove it and that’s what we did, the manager said while speaking to the club’s official website.

Liverpool’s win against Southampton extended their perfect start to the season to seven wins in a row and set a new club record for consecutive victories in all competitions from the start of a season.
