Liverpool are marching on to their first Premier League title after taking Southampton to the cleaners on match week 25 on Saturday.

The Reds beat Southampton 4-0 at home to extend their unbeaten streak of the season. Second-half goals from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah's brace saw Jurgen Klopp charges run riot at Anfield.

The win sees them sit comfortably at the top of the league with 77 points, 22 more than the Manchester City who lie second with a game in hand.

Elsewhere, Brighton rallied back from 3-1 to earn a point at West Ham. West Ham went 2-0 up before half time. Brighton reduced the deficit following an own goal from Angelo Ogbonna.
