Alex McCarthy saved from Virgil van Dijk and Roberto Firmino while Danny Ings twice went close for Southampton during an open first half.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put Liverpool in front after 47 minutes with a powerful low strike before Jordan Henderson converted Firmino’s pass to make it 2-0 on the hour mark.
Salah lifted the ball over McCarthy after being played in by Henderson to score Liverpool’s third with 18 minutes remaining and the Egyptian added a fourth on 90 minutes.
Liverpool, who stretch their unbeaten run to 42 matches, move 22 points clear of second-placed Manchester City having played a match more.
Southampton fall to 11th with 31 points.
