Southampton News and Form

Southampton did a tremendous job in collecting three points in a south coast duel against Brighton last weekend. That saw them ease themselves away from the relegation zone. That was Southampton’s third win in their last four played as well, so they are fighting hard at the moment. Their last home game produced a notable result for the Saints as well because they collected a win over Spurs. That moved them to back to back wins as well now in the top flight at St Marys. This season they have only won four home games (D6 L5) so there has been a big upturn recently.

Southampton are on a ten-match scoring streak on home soil, so that is another positive for them. Two-thirds of Southampton’s home games this term have made it over the 2.5 goal line. Southampton have struggled defensively with them having conceded an average of 1.5 goals per game this season, with just three clean sheets earned at St Mary’s all term. Both teams have scored in 73% of Southampton’s home games. Just three teams have a worse home record than Southampton have in this season’s top flight. But they are on the up and in a big survival mode at the moment.

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool had a bit of fate on their side in their home game against Tottenham on the weekend. They looked to be heading to a point with Spurs really on top in the second half of the game. But Liverpool got a huge break in their title push with Tottenham conceding an own goal at the very death. That moved Liverpool to a three-match winning streak in the top flight and continued strong home form. They haven’t been quite as strong on their travels though. They have taken just two wins in their last five away games (D1 L1) and that is where they have been feeling the pressure in this title race. Their last two wins away from Anfield have been one-goal margin successes over Brighton and Fulham, so they have had to work hard.

Liverpool are W10 D5 L1 this season on their travels, but they have won all six away games played against sides lower than 12th place in the division. Out on their travels, Liverpool have averaged 1.6 goals per game. Liverpool have only conceded the nine goals, with less than half of their road games going over 2.5 goals. That is simply because of how brilliant they have been in defence. Liverpool have claimed a clean sheet in 50% of their road fixtures. The Reds have scored 65% of their away goals in the second period of fixtures. In all but five of their away games, Liverpool have opened the scoring. Liverpool boast the best defensive record in the top flight.

Under 2.5 goals at 11/10

Southampton v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: The Saints are carrying a bit of form as they are in survival mode and Liverpool haven’t been at their best on the road. This could easily end up being a low scoring fixture, but Liverpool can take it by a one-goal margin.
