Southampton vs Liverpool Preview

Southampton vs Liverpool

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – The Friends Provident St Mary’s Stadium

Date: 5th April 2019

Kick-off time – 20:00 GMT

Virgil Van Dijk, Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana will all return to their old stomping ground when Southampton welcome Liverpool in this game.

This game also sees the original German Jurgen Klopp and the ‘Austrian Klopp’ go head to head in one of the most exciting games of the weekend.

The Reds are second in the league table behind Manchester City by a single point and they would feel that they have to win all of their remaining matches from now.

The Reds showed a spirit of champions when they came back to beat Tottenham at the weekend.

They showed in that game that they can dig deep and get the points when they need to and now that they have only Chelsea to play among the big six teams so fans expect them to win their remaining matches.

Southampton have become more or less a feeders club to Liverpool in recent seasons having sold them some of their best players.

The Saints only managed to escape relegation last season and were struggling to climb up the league table at the start of the season.

They are currently 16th in the league table with just 33 points so they could still be dragged into the relegation dog fight.

Southampton do have some quality players to cause an upset in this game but Liverpool will know that they cannot afford to lose this sort of game if they want to win the league.

Man City won over Cardiff in midweek which puts pressure on Liverpool to perform and regain top position heading into the final weeks of the season.

Bookmakers have priced Liverpool up as strong odds-on favourites to come out on top in this game while Southampton will start the game as outsiders to cause the upset.

Goal markets point to a high-scoring game as over 2.5 goals is currently trading odds-on while Mohamed Salah is clear favourite to score the opening goal of the game.

This Friday evening fixture gets underway at 20:00 BST.
