Liverpool vs Southampton Match Preview
After taking down West Ham on the road with a 2-0 scorecard earlier this week, Jurgen Klopp’s men have now beaten every single team in the Premier League. An astonishing feat that has now sent them nineteen points clear of second-placed Manchester City.
Having dropped points just once so far, Liverpool are currently sporting an emphatic fifteen match winning streak in the top flight.
On the other hand, Southampton bounced back from a 3-2 defeat at the hands of Wolves by slotting two unanswered goals past Crystal Palace in their most recent clash. The visitors have now stumbled just once in their last seven games in the first division, and just twice in their past ten across various competitions.
With thirty-one points to their name, the Saints have propelled themselves into the top ten as of now. However, with Jurgen Klopp’s side on red hot form at the moment, the visitors are likely to slump down the ladder this weekend.

Liverpool vs Southampton Prediction
Liverpool are yet to put a foot wrong in front of the home crowd this season and have secured maximum points from their last twelve games here. It is also worth mentioning that the home team have been at their defensive best in their recent clashes as well.
Impressively, they have kept a clean sheet in each of their past four fixtures here. The visitors have been showing promise in their recent outings too. They have picked up the win in each of their past four trips on the road, two of which were against sides that are currently dwelling in the top five.
Be that as it may, the guests have been at the losing end of a 3-0 scorecard in each of their last two visits to this stadium. Given the scintillating run of form that Liverpool are on, Southampton’s chances of causing an upset are certainly looking bleak.
Furthermore, goals have been a given whenever the Reds line up on the pitch. They have found the back of the net thirty-one times here so far, which is the joint-highest by any side in the cluster.
Taking into account that the reverse fixture of this matchup also featured over 2.5 goals on the charts, expect nothing short of a high scoring affair to unfold this week.
