Liverpool will visit Southampton on Tuesday, needy of three points, to close the gap between them and the current and probably the next title holders, Manchester City. They cannot afford to draw, let alone lose, as they are already four points behind Manchester City. Liverpool has 86 points in 36 games while City stands at 90 points in 37 points. They must win their 37th game for a chance at the title.
Liverpool has been undefeated in their last five games in the league, winning four and drawing against the newly revived and kicking Tottenham. They scored ten goals and conceded two goals in the five matches. Four of the ten goals were against struggling Manchester United. Out of the 36 games played, Liverpool has won 26 and lost two. They have scored 89 goals while conceding 24 goals. We can liken Klopp’s side to a double-edged sword. They are deadly in attacking and solid in defence.
Southampton sits at 15th place with 40 points. The Saints have not been on top of their game, winning only nine out of 36 games. They have won once, drawn once, and lost thrice in their last five games. The defence seems to be the problem, seeing they have scored 41 goals and conceded 61 goals. The Saints are safe at 15th place as the relegation battle is between Leeds and Burnley. A loss against Liverpool and in the last game still guarantees them a spot in the league come next season.
Liverpool is coming off an FA cup final win against Chelsea at Wembley on Saturday last weekend. There are doubts about Salah and Virgil as they were subbed off on Saturday evening. Klopp confirmed it was nothing major, and the two should be fine for Tuesday's game. Southampton will have to play without Livramento, who is on the injury list.
Liverpool has a higher chance of taking all the three points home. The saints have only won once in the last four matches against Liverpool. Following a draw against West Ham, Pep Guardiola has called upon Southampton to beat Liverpool by four goals to none. That sounds outrageous, right? It will be a daunting task for the Saints on Tuesday. It should be a comfortable three points for Liverpool if their recent form is anything to go by.
