Eighteenth placed Soton, are away to eighth placed Liverpool on Saturday.

It’s 19 points so far for Liverpool this season, going into this meeting

Jurgen Klopp will not wish to see his side lose three matches in a row, so they will doubtless go into this match, determined to change their recent, disappointing run of form.

Also, Liverpool keep finding ways to win, having secured three victories in their last five games is astonishing this season. They currently stand eighth in the League, with 19 points for a total of 5 wins, 4 losses and 4 draws having won five meetings, drawn four fixtures, and lost four matches.

Liverpool’s home record is commendable, having won four matches, drawn two games, and lost one game this season. This record should be most concerning for Soton.

A win in this fixture would take Liverpool’s points to 22 in the League.

Good Attacking Performance

Liverpool have a good scoring record this season, with 25 netted so far. This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Roberto Firmino (6), Mohamed Salah (6), and Luis Diaz (3). Liverpool have conceded 16 goals.

Liverpool’s ever growing list of players missing due to injury or illness to be a concern for Jurgen Klopp, ahead of this Saturday’s fixture against their opponents.

Nervous Southampton take relegation battle to Anfield to face Liverpool

Having lost to Newcastle United in their last game, Ruben Selles’ men must reset and try to gain a positive result in this match.

Also, With seven defeats in the last 11 matches, Ruben Selles’ Soton are justifiably in the bottom half of the table, very much looking at a relegation battle. With an eighteenth position in the league and 3 wins, 8 losses and 3 draws, they currently have 12 points in the League having won three matches, drawn three games, and lost eight fixtures.

Soton’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Liverpool. In the 7 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won two meetings and lost five meetings.

Winning this fixture will see Southampton on 15 points.

Ruben Selles could be missing up to three of their players through injury or illness for the game on Saturday.
