Liverpool vs Southampton | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
The Reds are on fire, and they would like to keep it that way. And they have perfect opportunity to make it so, because one pale and weak opponent is coming to Anfield, Southampton. The Saints just can’t reach a decent level of play, and despite being at the 12th place now, this team will be fighting to avoid the relegation this season.
Things are not looking bright for the Saints, because they are about to meet with the in-form Reds, who started this competition in a compelling style. Southampton is heading for Liverpool after three matches without a defeat, but that is only because they had more luck than they deserved. That especially refers to the clash against Crystal Palace. For the hosts, anything else but a certain victory would be under the expectations, especially since they have a difficult schedule ahead, and they need three points from this one very badly.
Liverpool is 5 from 5 in the Premiership, and above all that, they are looking terrific. Only two goals allowed are the lowest in the league, and their last two matches showed that Klopp now has a team which will for sure be the most severe title contender along with Manchester City. The Reds defeated Tottenham, pretty routinely at Wembley with 1:2, and after that, PSG was crushed with a last-minute dagger by Roberto Firminho, 3:2, for the first win in the Champions League in this campaign. It was the 10th straight victory of the Reds, and that is precisely why we said that they are on fire. In five of the previous six matches, they netted at least twice, and the last three have been with goals on both sides.
Someone might think for a moment that we have something against Southampton, but that is not the truth. We are merely very realistic in this matter because we had an opportunity to watch Saints three times this season. Even though they have 5 points from five matches, it is the mostly because they had luck. It is maybe harsh to say it like this, but you have to believe us here. If they perform against Liverpool, as they did in the majority of matches this season, three goals in their net would be the minimal outcome. The Saints rely upon quick counter-attacks and set pieces, and they defend throughout the whole match, with minimal intentions to attack, or create some chance themselves. To be inferior all the time against Liverpool is not a smart choice, we have to tell you right away.
