Southampton vs Liverpool Preview

Southampton vs Liverpool

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – The Friends Provident St Mary’s Stadium

Date: 11th February 2018

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

Southampton came out victorious in one of the most anticipated games of last weekend when they beat West Brom 3-2 at the Hawthorns.

That win keeps them unbeaten in their last 6 games in all competitions but they are still in trouble as they lie 15th in the league table with only one win in their last 13 Premier League games, just 2 points off the relegation zone.

They remain a difficult side to beat but the wins have also been difficult to come by as their defence remains as generous as their attack is potent.

Both teams have scored in 7 of their last 8 games and the Saints will need to be in luck to outscore Liverpool here.

Liverpool’s controversial draw with Tottenham in their last game leaves them 3rd in the league table ahead of this game, just 1 point above Chelsea and two above Tottenham who are 5th.

They have lost just one of their last 17 league games ahead of this match and that shows how difficult they are to beat.

Liverpool have scored more than any other team (59) except Manchester City this season but they are also the highest conceders in the top five with 31 goals.

They have won two, lost three and drawn two of their last 7 meetings with Southampton.
