Liverpool vs Southampton: prediction for the EPL fixture
Liverpoolare having a fantastic season and have a solid chance of winning their 20th Premier League trophy. After the 12 rounds,the Reds are 3rd in the table with 25 points from 7 victories and 4 draws. Liverpool have the best attack in the league with 35 goals, 11 of which were scored by Salah.
After unexpected loss of points against Brighton (2:2) and West Ham (2:3), Jurgen Klopp's men crushed Arsenal in the last round (4:0).
Liverpool also have earned maximum points from 5 Champions League games and now are top of their group. This means they have already secured a knockouts berth. Last Wednesday, the Reds got a landslide victory against Porto (2:0).
Firmino, Elliott, Keita, Jones, and Gomez have been ruled out of this fixture.
Southampton spent big in the summer, but their results this season leave much to be desired. Soton passed two rounds of the League Cup, beating Newport (8:0) and Sheffield United (3:2 P), before they lost to Chelsea in a penalty shootout.
The Saints' Premier League campaign is going relatively well. They won 3 games and 5 matches ended in draws, which puts the team in 13th place in the log with 14 points. In the last rounds, Southampton defeated Watford (1:0) and Aston Villa (1:0), but lost to Norwich (1:2).
