Southampton vs Liverpool Premier League Predictions

Premier League Southampton vs Liverpool
Southampton vs Liverpool Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 1-3.

The Premier League title race is hotting up and Liverpool face one of their toughest remaining tests of the campaign as they travel to a Southampton side who are threatened by relegation but are in a strong run of form, having won each of their last two games.

Predictions

Southampton are a side in good form having won each of their last two matches and three of their last four – securing victories over Fulham, Tottenham and Brighton.

The Saints lost their other encounter in that run 3-2 at Manchester United, but put in an admirable performance and if they can maintain that performance level they will be confident of points in this game.

After a run of four draws in six Premier League games, Liverpool have returned to winning form having secured three successive victories.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have secured recent wins over Burnley, Fulham and Tottenham but are not in top form and have appeared somewhat edgy in recent weeks.

The visitors will be favourites to continue their run of victories despite not possessing home advantage, as they hold superior form and quality over Southampton.

The away side are favourites to win this game although it may not be comfortable – a 1-0 triumph for the Merseyside team would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

Liverpool have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four matches against Southampton while just ten goals in total have gone in across the past seven meetings between the two. Jurgen Klopp’s side have conceded just 19 goals in 32 league games this season – the lowest in the division – while the Saints have only outscored two teams who are not in the relegation zone. 888Sport prices the away win to nil at 7/5.

Whilst Liverpool’s defence is formidable, if the home side are to find the net it could be through set-piece expert James Ward-Prowse. The England international has netted a remarkable six goals in his last 11 outings for the Saints including three in his last four – against Manchester United, Fulham and Tottenham. The long odds on this market make it among the best online betting odds for this round of action, priced at 21/4 with 888Sport.
