Liverpool midfielder Thiago Alcantara insists he is more pleased with winning than his own individuals performances.

The Spaniard scored his second goal in as many games as Liverpool claimed an emphatic 4-0 win over Southampton on Saturday.

But Thiago says he is more interested in Liverpool taking all three points and moving two points behind league leaders Chelsea.

"As I said, it's special to score at this stadium but I am even more pleased with the win," Thiago told Liverpoolfc.com post-match. "We are pretty happy with our performance most of the first half and [in the] second.

"First half was a great game. We concede a bit but we also created a lot of chances, we create good football and at the end we got the result [in the] first half.

"Second one, for sure we were playing with the time, with the result and also knowing that in three days you have another game, so it's a mix of feelings that you don't have to have. You just have to be focused on this game and stay hungry the whole game.

"We were preparing the game for [their] 4-4-2, 4-4-1-1, but at the end they changed.

"But I think we had a lot of experience in football to analyse the moment how the opponents are playing and just to convert our game there."
