Southampton – Liverpool : Preview & Prediction
Having left behind a long streak without triumphs in the Premier League, the cast of Southampton is preparing to receive the visit of one of the protagonists of the Premier as it is Liverpool, in play to be played at St. Mary’s Stadium.
Those led by Mauricio Pellegrino last weekend ended a 12-game losing streak in the English Premier League when they beat 2-3 in their visit to West Bromwich Albion thanks to goals from Mario Lemina, Jack Stephens, The victory allows the Saints to move away from the relegation zone as they are now two points ahead of Stoke City, as well as taking confidence for a hard game like this Sunday’s game against Liverpool at home where they have only won an opportunity in the last seven days of Premier but has been present with goal in all of them.
Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp managed to escape the three points in their game against Tottenham Hotspur against whom they drew two goals, and is that his main figure in attack as is the Egyptian Mohamed Salah put the difference in the 90th minute but a penalty in 93 led to that Harry Kane put the equality and with this now the Reds moved away from Manchester United to five points in that fight for the second place and careful that a defeat here can leave them out of the first four classified that go directly to the UEFA Champions League group zone every time the Spurs are two points below.
So despite midweek having an important game for the UEFA Champions League round of 16 against FC Porto, Klopp has decided to come out with everything including Salah who is fighting the scorers with Kane and is that everything is tight above and there is no margin for error.
As for direct matches to Livepool it has not been easy to be superior to the Saints, so the Reds have won 14 of the 42 games played at St. Mary’s by 18 Southampton, and even before the 3-0 victory of Liverpool in the first leg of the current season of the Premier the Saints came with a run of five games without losses to Liverpool.
Despite the points difference that the Liverpool cast has over Southampton in the Premier League, we do not see a simple game for the Reds. And is that the Saints have a very interesting team and although they are located in the bottom of the classification just lack a little bit of luck and above all confidence that we believe has been recovered in the wake of the last victory over West Bromwich Albion .
Southampton is very clear that from now on you have to add all the points at home to get away from the red zone and what better than against a Liverpool who has a defense not so sure and also comes with his head in his game of UEFA champions league. Therefore, rather than guess who will be the winner, we decided to go for the option of Southampton will be present with a goal, something that has been normal in the games of the Saints at home this season.
