Liverpool vs Southampton Match Preview

This match would not have been earmarked as a potential banana skin for Liverpool at the start of the season…but things are very different now given Southampton’s excellent form, especially away from home.

Saints have improved massively over the last six weeks and lost only one of their last nine games, climbing to ninth in the Premier League table – only three points off fifth place! And this is a team that looked doomed after losing 9-0 at home to Leicester in October.

Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has done a terrific job since then and Southampton’s six away league wins this term is comfortably the highest number outside the Champions League qualifying positions – only one other team, Wolves, has even managed four.

So that serves as a warning for champions-elect Liverpool not to underestimate these opponents, even though they are on course themselves to set record after record in this campaign of complete dominance – especially at Anfield, where they remain 100% in the Premier League for just over a year now.

The worry for Southampton, apart from their own poor recent scoring record at this venue (see stats above), is that Liverpool have won their last five home games to nil.

This looks highly likely to be another such victory and that is no reflection on Hasenhuttl’s side, merely recognition that Anfield is a fortress and the Reds are completely unstoppable.
