Takumi Minamino rifled in at the near post to draw Jurgen Klopp's side level.

The Reds came into the game knowing they needed a win to have any chance of being crowned Premier League champions on the final day.

Current league leaders Manchester City started the evening four points clear with a better goal difference, meaning a draw would've all but guaranteed a fourth title in five years.

Liverpool lost Joe Gomez to injury at the break and with no Trent Alexander-Arnold in the squad, he was replaced by captain Jordan Henderson.

Southampton stayed compact in the second half but came undone from a corner after relentless Liverpool pressure.

It means the title race will now be decided on Sunday, with Liverpool hosting Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield and City welcoming Aston Villa to the Etihad.

Liverpool have won the Carabao Cup already in addition to the FA Cup and will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final later this month.

Klopp recently slammed Liverpool's fixture schedule, claiming his team should've been allowed to play on Wednesday.

That's the date of the Europe League final when Rangers take on Eintracht Frankfurt in Seville.

"[We played] 120 minutes on Saturday, then we play Tuesday. Come on," he fumed. We could have played Wednesday but can't because of the Europa League final, right? 

"Ahhh, UEFA, my friends! We could have played Thursday?! I have to sit here and say this.

"Nobody thinks about it apart from me."
