Liverpool hosts Southampton in a match from the 12th round
Liverpool hosts Southampton in a match from the 12th round of the English Premier League. The game is going to be played at the legendary Anfield on Saturday afternoon. Here is our today soccer match prediction for this clash.
Liverpool won their last two games in the league, which helped them to get up to 5th position in the league standings. Jurgen Klopp’s team is on 12 points behind the leader Manchester City, so it’d be difficult to say that they are title contenders. But they still have a realistic chance to aim for a Top 4 place and a qualification for the Champions League.
In their last two matches The Reds enjoyed wins over Huddersfield and West Ham, which allowed them to stay close to the Top 4. Now they will try to make it three in a row against The Saints of Mauricip Pellegrino.
Southampton are 13rd in the league standings with 13 points won so far. They have a record of three wins, four draws and four losses. In their last five games The Saints managed to win just once – against West Bromwich. In their last game Southampton suffered a home defeat to Burnley.
There is some serious pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s shoulders right now. More and more of Liverpool’s fans are losing faith in the German manager. The only way he could change that is start winning on a more regular basis.
Liverpool could be without Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson in this game, while Adam Lallana is once again fit to play for his team.
Meanwhile Southampton could be without Mario Lemina and Matthew Targett, who have problems with injuries.
This is our today soccer match prediction for the clash between Liverpool and Southampton at the Anfield. Liverpool are favourites here, but this season you should always be careful with them.
