• ‘Lallana was captain and gave incredible service to Southampton’
• Match report: Southampton 0-2 Liverpool
• Southampton lack invention to break through packed defence
• Barney Ronay: Liverpool win despite starting without a striker
Brendan Rodgers admitted he was disappointed at the reception afforded Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren on their first return to Southampton since last summer’s high-profile transfers to Liverpool, suggesting both deserved better than the chorus of boos which greeted their every touch.
The visiting manager, whose side extended their unbeaten league run to 10 matches with an impressive victory to move to within three points of third place, also bemoaned a lack of acknowledgements in the official match day programme to mark the efforts put in by Lallana, Lovren and Rickie Lambert over their time on the south coast. All three were actually referenced in the club captain Kelvin Davis’s column on page 82 of the Saints magazine, though Rodgers felt the trio merited more.
