However, the Reds' penalty appeal was dashed as VAR intervened and the decision went in favour of Southampton.

Liverpool's hopes of opening a lead at the top of the Premier League table were dashed after they were unable to crack the Southampton defence.

The Reds remain top of the league, but Jurgen Klopp's side are level on points with second-place Manchester United.

United have a match in hand and won't return to Premier League action until 12th January when they travel away to Burnley.

And Liverpool's next Premier League match will be against none other than the Red Devils on 17th January at Anfield.
