Liverpool v Southampton Betting Preview – Premier League 18th November 3.00pm

Can Liverpool continue to build some momentum? The Reds won their two games before the international break came along and are still finding themselves three points outside of the top four. They did look as if they were getting back to their clinical goal scoring best though and that could spell trouble for the Saints. Southampton are floundering down in the bottom half of the league with just one win in their last six.

Liverpool v Southampton Betting Tips

Liverpool are aiming for their third straight Premier League victory after going into the international break on the back to two wins. They needed that swing in form as well because they had won just one of their previous six games and Jurgen Klopp was starting to feel a little bit of heat. They have not lost at Anfield so far this season with a W3 D2 record from their five home games and they have scored nine goals in those five fixtures, conceding just the one. Liverpool to win to nil at bet365 is probably going to have a lot of appeal because it doesn’t look as if Southampton are going to turn up and terrorise the Reds’ defence. Under 2.5 goals at 23/20 could well offer some great value too. This would be the first time this season that Liverpool have won three league games in a row if they can pull it off.

Last Six Premier League Head to Head

Liverpool 0 – 0 Southampton
Southampton 0 – 0 Liverpool
Southampton 3 – 2 Liverpool
Liverpool 1 – 1 Southampton
Southampton 0 – 2 Liverpool
Liverpool 2 – 1 Southampton

There were two 0-0 draws between Liverpool and Southampton in the Premier League last season, not exciting games at all. In the bet365 correct score market for this one, the Liverpool 2-0 option is a great 13/2 price, with the 1-0 home win at 15/2. Liverpool have been level at half time in all but one of their home games this season in the top flight and a half time draw in this one isn’t a bad option at a price of 6/4 with bet365. But building on from that probability, you could push towards a Draw/Liverpool half time/full time bet at bet365 which is trading at a price of 3/1. Top scorer for Liverpool this season is Mohamed Salah with a seven goal haul but no player has managed to score more than two goals at home for the Reds this season. Salah is the 6/5 anytime goalscorer favourite. Liverpool are winless in their last four league games against Southampton.

Current League Form (most recent last)

Whilst the Saints have enjoyed a bit of decent Premier League form against Liverpool recently, punters will have a hard time trusting them to come up with something in this away fixture. They are big underdogs for it. Southampton are on a sequence of form which has seen them take just the one win in their last six league games and that victory was a 1-0 scrape against West Brom at home. The Saints haven’t clicked offensively at all the season and have netted only the nine Premier League goals in their eleven league games this season. They have failed to score in five matches this season and just before the international break they suffered a disappointing home loss against Burnley. Southampton have claimed only one away victory this season, a 1-0 triumph at Crystal Palace and overall have gone only W1 D2 L1 on the road.

Manolo Gabbiadini is the top scorer for Southampton this season with a third of their nine league goals. He is a pretty big 11/4 price to score in this fixture just because Southampton don’t create much going forward to give him chances. Out on their top flight travels, this season Southampton have only netted three goals and two of them have been in the first half of their games. These two sides did meet four times last season and those games only produced a total of two goals over their league and EFL Cup clashes. The Saints won both cup games 1-0 but that’s a huge 20/1 correct score option for this league fixture. Southampton may have only lost one of their last seven games against the Reds in all competitions now (W2 D4 L1) but it’s hard to see anything more than a draw at the very best for them.

Liverpool v Southampton Predictions

Liverpool to win: Southampton are not a threat at all and they are really struggling for an edge this season. They may at least offer up some resistance in the early stages by Liverpool can go and pick them off. Liverpool to win to nil looks value as the Saints won’t give them too many problems.
