Southampton v Liverpool Preview, Premiership, Sunday 25th January 2015

Southampton have been this years surprise package in the English Premier League so far this season. After many key players left for the like of Liverpool and Manchester United last year they have showed that the no player is too big for their club as new manager Ronald Koeman has stated this week.

Southampton are currently sat in fourth place in the table on 46 points and are one point behind Manchester United. If Southampton don’t win then they will probably slip into fifth as Arsenal are expected to win away at Crystal Palace.

Liverpool head into this game as the join leaders with Chelsea in the recent form tables as they have won four games out of their last five games played. Liverpool are currently sat in seventh place in the table and a win against Southampton would take the Merseyside club just one put behind the London based team. Last time out Liverpool managed to scrape a 1-0 victory against Besiktas in the Europa League thanks to a late penalty from Mario Balotelli.

Southampton Team News:

Manager Ronald Koeman has a long list of problems to contend with going into this game as Schneiderlin, Long, Targett, Gallagher and Alderweireld are all doubts for the game. Mayuka, Isgrove and Rodriguez will all miss the game.

Liverpool Team News:

Liverpool seem to be a lot luckier than their opponents for this game as they have fewer injuries however, captain Gerrard will miss the game as will Lucas Leiva. Brad Jones and Flanagan remain long term injury problems.

Southampton v Liverpool Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Premiership action on Sunday Afternoon will be coming from St Marys Stadium when 4th placed team Southampton welcome 7th place Liverpool in what is set up for a crucial match with the outcome firmly in the balance.

The home team Southampton head into this match knowing that they need at least a draw if they are to keep their Champions League aspirations alive with the like of Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool all in and around them in the standings. A win here would take them seven points above Liverpool in the table.

However, if they are to lose the game then Liverpool would move up and only be one point behind them in the table. Liverpool have much the better recent form and much the better overall head to head statistics. I expect Liverpool to start with Daniel Sturridge upfront despite Mario Balotelli scoring the winner in the Europa league on Thursday night.

My predictions for the game are going to be the game to end all square.

My Saver is going to be a correct score of 1-1.
