Liverpool are absolutely cruising against Southampton right now. 

The Reds, who still have an outside chance of qualifying for the Champions League, are unbeaten in their last ten games and it looks like they're going to extend that run to 11.

Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring at St. Mary's with a stunning solo goal which delighted the travelling contingent of Liverpool fans after just 17 minutes.

Their second was more of a team effort but was equally as impressive just five minutes after the first goal. Coutinho sprung the move by laying the ball off to Belgian forward Divock Origi, who laid it off for Sturridge to tap into the net.

Liverpool went into the game against Ronald Koeman's side after knocking Manchester United out of the Europa League, and are certainly finding their feet under Jurgen Klopp in the German manager's first season.

Victory today would move the Anfield-based club to within four points of Manchester City, who occupy the fourth and final Champions League qualification spot.

Manuel Pellegrini's side go up against rivals Manchester United, who are also in the top four hunt, later this afternoon.

Asked before the Southampton game whether he thought a surge into the top four was possible, Klopp said: "The only thing I can say is 'hopefully'.

"It is difficult to imagine what could happen but the only thing we can do is do our best and get whatever we can get and that is what we have tried in the last few weeks.

"In the position we are in if you want to get up in the table you have to watch what other teams are doing, which makes no sense as we have no influence over it. We have to win our games as often as possible and see what happens."
