Liverpool vs Southampton: Match preview, team news, and predicted line-ups

- Advertisement -

Liverpool welcomes Southampton at Anfield for match week 13 on Saturday. The Reds are currently 3rd on the table behind Manchester City by just one point. Whereas Southampton are 13th on the table and one point behind Leicester City. Liverpool have enjoyed their 2-0 victory against Porto midweek in the Champions League. On the other hand, Southampton enters this game suffering a defeat against Norwich City.

A win against Southampton will see Liverpool move to 2nd on the Premier League table. The Reds have also rested some of their players in the UCL fixture midweek and will have an advantage on the weekend against the Saints. This will be a great opportunity for Liverpool to increase their lead from West Ham, who are just 2 points behind them.

If Southampton manages a win from this fixture, they will match Brighton and Manchester United on points. However, it will be very difficult for the Saints to do something of that sort. Their previous defeat to Norwich is an embarrassing one and then a trip to Anfield is even more frightening.

Liverpool vs Southampton: The Reds team news and injury updates

Naby Keita’s comeback against Southampton is a possibility, but Roberto Firmino, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliott, and Joe Gomez are all certain to miss out once more. Furthermore, Diogo Jota recovered well to make himself available on the bench against Arsenal. Whereas James Milner, Divock Origi, and Neco Williams were all fit to face Porto in the Champions League. Jordan Henderson and Fabinho are likely to make a return and will replace Tyler Morton who completed 90 minutes in his debut Champions League match.

Chelsea loanee, Armando Broja continues to strive for a starting spot up front, although Adams and Adam Armstrong are unlikely to be dropped for the trip to Anfield. Nathan Redmond missed the trip to Norwich due to the birth of his child, but he should be available here, although Stuart Armstrong remains doubtful due to injury and Moussa Djenepo is also doubtful due to personal issues. Furthermore, Jack Stephens will, unfortunately, have to spend a few more weeks sidelined due to a knee injury. Ibrahima Diallo may be on the bench as Nathan Redmond is expected to return.

Our score predictions

Liverpool 3-0 Southampton

Although Southampton have some players returning to the squad and had more rest than Liverpool, the Reds are the favourites to win this fixture comfortably. Klopp had the opportunity to rest some of his key players against Porto who will return to the lineup against Southampton. Liverpool would love to continue on their brilliant display against Arsenal and close the gap to the table-toppers Chelsea.
