Southampton Form & Team News

Southampton are in the ninth position with 26 points from 16 matches. They have won seven matches, drew five and lost four, they are having the same record as Chelsea but are behind them on goal difference. They have a pretty good home record, as they have won four, drew one and lost three in eight home matches. Southampton have lost just one match in their last five matches in the English Premier League including three draws. In the 16 matches played, they have scored 25 goals and have conceded 19 goals.

Jannik Vestergaard is out due to a knee injury and Nathan Redmond is doubtful for the Liverpool clash due to a muscle injury. All the players got six days of rest, so Ralph Hasenhüttl is unlikely to make any changes to the playing XI from the previous match against West Ham United. Danny Ings is in some great goal scoring form this season with six goals, but hasn’t been able to score a goal in the last four matches. He will be hoping to change this by finding the back of the net against Liverpool.

Liverpool Form & Team News

The defending champions have started this season where they have left it last season. They are currently at the top of the table with 33 points in 16 matches and level with Manchester United but ahead on goal difference. They have won nine matches, drew six and lost just one match so far this season. They are also unbeaten in their last five matches including two wins and three draws. They have scored 37 goals and have conceded just 20 goals in the 16 matches played this season.

Liverpool has a big list of injured players, which includes Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota. Even if their players got just four days of rest, Jürgen Klopp might not consider too many changes as it may break the combinations. Their front three have contributed 24 goals out of the 37 goals, with Mo Salah leading the pack with 13 goals. Although their attack looks promising, their defense looks a bit weak without the services of Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip.
