Every supporter has those games that they look back fondly on, and for Southampton fans, one of those fixtures was the iconic 4-1 win against Liverpool in the 1989/90 First Division season.

The famous win at The Dell is one of the most resounding victories in Southampton history, with a squad featuring the likes of Matt Le Tissier, Jimmy Case and a young Alan Shearer putting Liverpool, who went on to win the title that season by a clear nine points, to the sword in an empathic game.

A brace from Rod Wallace plus goals from Paul Rideout and Le Tissier saw the Saints triumph a Liverpool squad that bolstered John Barnes, Alan Hansen and Ian Rush.

The game is one that sticks out fondly in the memory of Southampton fans who were around to see the iconic win, and highlights from the game were recently posted on social media, with supporters swooning over the fixture that left a massive mark for them during the late 80s.
