⭕ Match Preview

Liverpool vs Southampton Prediction, Backed by a 4-0 win over Arsenal, Liverpool will try to give fans another reason to celebrate when they host Southampton at Anfield on Matchday 13.
The Reds are desperate to regain the Premier League trophy, and they tend to maintain their attacking style of play.
The attacking partnership of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah has been in perfect working order of late, and the pair are likely to prove a handful of opposing defenders.
The Saints, on the other hand, suffered a shock 2-1 loss to Norwich City in their last league outing, and given their four-game losing streak at Anfield, anything but regular home wins would be a huge shock.
Both Jota and Robertson should be fit for the hosts, while Gomez, Jones and Firmino remain in the recovery room. As for the away team, defender Jack Stephens should be the only one absent.
Liverpool will be looking for a repeat of their 2-0 Champions League win vs Porto.
In that game, Liverpool had 59% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. For Liverpool, the goalscorers are Thiago Alcântara (52′) and Mohamed Salah (70′). FC Porto got 9 shots on goal with 1 on target.
Liverpool can't stop scoring goals, scoring in every of their last 6 games.
They have claimed a total of 14 during that period while also conceding a total of 5. We will have to see if that trend will continue or not in this game.
Heading into this clash, Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 10 league outings at home. The run they hoped for could be extended here.
After losing their previous match against Norwich City in the Premier League, Southampton and their fans are hoping for an even better result this time around.
In that match, Southampton managed to have 63% possession and 17 shots on goal with 5 on target.
The only player to score for Southampton is Ché Adams (4′). On the other hand, Norwich City had 8 attempts on goal with 4 of them on target. Teemu Pukki (7′) and Grant Hanley (79′) scored for Norwich City.
Over their last 6 matches, Southampton have collected 7 goals. Southampton also scored on each of those occasions. During that period, their defenders have seen 5 goals scored by their opponents.
Ahead of this match, Southampton are yet to emerge victorious against Liverpool away from home in their previous 7 league games. Not the best away record.
A look at their last head to head clash since 22/09/2018 shows that Liverpool have won 5 of these matches and Southampton 1, with the number of matches drawn to 0.
A combined total of 17 goals were scored between them during the match, with 14 from the Reds and 3 from the Saints. That's a goals-per-game average of 2.83.
The previous league contest featuring these teams was the 35th day Premier League fixture on 08/05/2021 when Liverpool finished 2-0 Southampton.
That day, Liverpool managed to have 53% possession and 14 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. The goalscorers are Sadio Mané (31′) and Thiago Alcântara (90′).
Southampton got 12 shots into the net with 6 accurate targets.
This match was led by Kevin Friend.
Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has no fitness issues to speak of before this game as a completely injury-free group are poised to go.
Thanks to the completely healthy group available to choose from, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl has not had any fitness issues coming into this game.
It's pretty clear that Southampton need to play great football to get a goal against a Liverpool side who should be able to lead the game in attack, midfield and defence.
Our choice here is for a 3-0 lead for Liverpool when the referee blows the final whistle.
Liverpool vs Southampton Score Prediction: 3-0
