On November 12, at Anfield Road, there will be one of the matches of the 15th round of the championship of England. Liverpool will meet with Southampton. Of course, the hosts are the favorites. They are unlikely to have any problems to confirm this status!
In the last round of the English championship Klopp’s charges proved that it is too early to write them off. The Merseyside side beat Tottenham 1-2 on the road. Mo Salah netted the brace with a goal. In general, the Egyptian is in great form. Within 4 matches in all competitions he scored 5 goals and also gave 1 assists.
In the EPL standings the Reds are currently in the 8th position. After 13 games they have 19 points. The gap from the Champions League zone is 7 points. Liverpool have not been as weak at home as they have been in the current EPL: goal difference is 18:7
Southampton approach the game against Merseyside on the background of the defeat against Newcastle (1:4) in the last round.
In recent years, Hasenhüttl’s charges have not been known for any consistency in their performances. But in the current draw of the APL, the team is doing as badly as possible. To begin with, only 12 points have been earned in 14 games.
In the standings the team is only on the 18th line (in the relegation zone). The gap from the 17th position is 1 point. In seven away matches Southampton won only twice, while losing five times. It managed to score only 4 goals and conceded 12.
Liverpool, of course, is not particularly stable. But now there is every reason to believe that the Reds are gradually climbing out of the crisis. If this is true, then there should be no serious difficulties with the most problematic Southampton.
This season, Hasenhüttl’s charges, if they are able to show quality soccer, then only at home. On the road, as we mentioned earlier, their results are not impressive at all (5 “Losers” in 7 games). Our prediction – we believe in the victory of Liverpool.
