Liverpool vs. Southampton Match Analysis and Prediction

Liverpool embarks on making up for lost momentum towards the end of the season as they play host to Southampton. The match schedules for Saturday at Anfield with kickoff at 11:15 pm.

It’s no doubt it has been a hard time for the Reds with only one win in their last five games across all competitions. It is a run that resulted in three draws. They face off a Saints side looking to do a double over them for the third time in their history.

Liverpool’s hopes of registering a win for the first time since 2004 at Old Trafford were put on hold. Their Premier League clash with the Red Devils was postponed to next Thursday after a fan’s protest.

Hundreds of angry fans stormed Old Trafford with placards and chants of ‘Glazers Out.’ The protests got off-hand until it got the earlier scheduled kickoff at 4:30 pm on Sunday postponed.

A week’s rest puts Liverpool’s hopes of a top-four finish into perspective. Additionally, only seven points separate them from the Champions League spot.

In contrast, Saints know how much it will take from them to get a double over the Reds at Old Trafford. Moreover, Ralph Hassenhutl has no wins against their opponents in their last six encounters. A major positive sign is that they are far from relegation battles.
