Southampton v Liverpool tips: The Reds to return to the top?
In this topsy turvy Premier League title fight, Liverpool can return to the top of the table with a win over Southampton tonight.
It’s been real nip and tuck between the Reds and Manchester City with any slip up becoming increasingly significant.
Will the visitors get the job done? Here’s all you need to know ahead of the big kick-off.
This may not be as straight-forward for Liverpool as they’d hope. Southampton have beaten Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur at St. Mary’s Stadium already this campaign and are 7/1 for victory.
The Saints have won three of their last four league games and may feel two more wins will ensure Premier League safety.
We have chalked up a first draw in four games between the pair at 18/5.
Ralph Hasenhuttl may have to recall Charlie Austin to the starting eleven, with both Shane Long and Danny Ings unavailable for this one.
Although he’ll be ably supported by the lively Nathan Redmond, as well as a midfield including Stuart Armstrong and James Ward-Prowse.
Liverpool have been handed a massive boost in this title run in with the news that Virgil van Dijk is fit to play.
The Merseysiders should have at least two former Saints in their starting eleven with the inclusion of Sadio Mane in attack and the aforementioned van Dijk.
Fabinho could come into the midfield with Jordan Henderson nursing injury.
Mane is bang in form right now and can be found at 10/3 to break the deadlock. His strike partner Mohamed Salah hasn’t scored in eight games in all competitions but is 6/5 to bounce back with a goal today.
Trent Alexander-Arnold’s free-kick prowess could be worth keeping in mind with him at 7/1 to net anytime.
