Liverpool endured something of a frustrating afternoon at St. Mary’s, coming away with one point in a 0-0 stalemate.

The visitors had plenty of chances, the best of which fell to Roberto Firmino and former Saint Nathaniel Clyne, but in the end Liverpool and Southampton shared the points on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

They will feel they should have won the match, especially as Southampton didn’t register a single shot on target, but Liverpool will have to take a point and move on.

That being said, Jürgen Klopp’s side do stay top of the Premier League table (until Chelsea play tomorrow, at least) and kept another clean sheet, so the game was not entirely without its share of positives.

Liverpool fans were understandably frustrated, but not overly distraught as their side remained extended their unbeaten run and are still looking down on the rest of the league.

There was, however, a considerable amount of praise for defender Joel Matip. The Camerooon international has been in brilliant form since signing for Liverpool on a free transfer from Schalke in the summer, and his performance today did not go unnoticed:

The Reds will get a chance to get back to winning and scoring ways next week when they welcome David Moyes’ Sunderland (who themselves beat Hull 3-0 today) to Anfield.
