England Premier League
Saturday 22nd September 2018
Kick off at 3pm BST
Liverpool will enter this game in high spirits after beating the mega stars of PSG 3-2 in the Champions League in midweek and now they will concentrate back onto the Premier League. They are in 2ndt place only on goal difference to Chelsea and come into this game with a 100% record, played 5 won 5.
After Jurgen Klopp's team destroyed West Ham in their first match at Anfield there was a come down when Brighton visited, though they won it was only 1-0, and most expected a bigger margin. The Kop fans will be expecting another huge display from their team. Mohamed Salah didn’t have a great game against PSG and for his standards has got off to a slow start in the league but he will sure to be in the starting line up and raring to go. The gulf in quality between the two sides is big and Liverpool will of course be the big odds on favourites to make it six wins in a row.
The Saints have just 1 win this season, which came away to Crystal Palace and are in 13th place and 10 points behind their hosts. The last time they travelled up to Merseyside was only a few weeks ago and they lost to Everton 2-1. It already looks like being a season of struggle for Southampton and this is their first real test against a league title contender and it’s away from home, the writing certainly looks like it is on the wall.
Liverpool: Dejan Lovren is near to being in the squad again after a lack of match fitness. Adam Lallana is still struggling with a groin injury
Southampton: Danny Ings is ineligible to face his parent club. Manolo Gabbiadini remains doubtful but will be assessed after his hamstring injury

Liverpool vs Southampton Prediction:
As expected Liverpool are huge odds on to win this game so we will seek better odds and like the look of them winning at half time and full time. Klopp will set his team out to attack from the beginning of the match and they should be a formidable force. Make no mistake Liverpool’s priority this season is winning the Premier League. Liverpool should be good for a few goals in this game and look set to win comfortably.
