Liverpool star Luis Suarez celebrated his 100th Premier League appearance at the club with the only goal of the half at St Mary’s. The Uruguayan pounced on a loose ball in the 16th minute to coolly finish past Artur Boruc from just inside the penalty area.googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(“div-gpt-ad-1389116196215-0”); });It is Suarez’s 24th goal so far in this prolific season and his 62nd in his 100 league appearances for the Reds. Liverpool went into the game needing to win after Chelsea pulled seven points clear with a 3-1 victory at Fulham, and will hope to increase their lead in the second half to give their title bid a push. However, the Saints have shown promising signs of getting back into the game, with Adam Lallana hitting the post and Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet saving well from Jay Rodriguez just before half-time. Southampton have won their three previous home games against Liverpool, with the Reds last win at St Mary’s coming in 2003.
