Striving Southampton cross their fingers to pull off a surprise win when they play enterprising Liverpool in the next league match. It’s 15th vs 2nd and the home crowd will have not-so-high confidence.

Insights:
  • Southampton have the most dropped points from leading position (26) in Premier League
  • Liverpool have the fewest conceded goals in the second half (12) in Premier League

Southampton are staying put; they can neither be promoted or relegated this season and are fighting only for positions.

It’s a hectic schedule for the away team, as they were in action only three days ago in the FA Cup. That game was also an away game, at Chelsea. It will be interesting to see if they are fully ready and rested for this match, and/or if some changes in the lineup is necessary.
