Rhian Brewster also scores in 4-2 win that earns Reds their first points of the PL2 Division 1 season

Liverpool secured their first points of the Premier League 2 Division 1 season with a 4-2 win at Southampton.

Rhian Brewster gave Liverpool a 12th-minute lead, having been teed up by captain Curtis Jones. And, although William Smallbone equalised moments later, Jones (pictured) restored the visitors’ advantage in the 26th minute.

The Reds extended their lead through Pedro Chirivella after the break but Saints again responded as Daniel N’Lundulu hit back just after the hour.

Liverpool had to endure a nervy final 20 minutes as Southampton twice went close to equalising, with Callum Slattery heading against the crossbar and Marcus Barnes failing to convert when through on goal.

But substitute Luis Longstaff wrapped up the points with an 83rd-minute strike assisted by Harvey Elliott.

Liverpool have moved up to ninth place with three points, just behind eighth-placed Southampton on goal difference.
