Liverpool vs Southampton - Premier League preview and odds


Published on: 07/05/2017

Jurgen Klopp`s men have struggled with injuries to key players for most of the season and Sunday will be no exception. The good news, however, is that Philippe Coutinho could recover from a dead leg in time for this match.

Meanwhile, Southampton will seek to break a three-game winless streak when they make the long trip north on Sunday. Claude PuelÂ’s men can climb back up to ninth in the table and move to within to a point of eighth-place West Brom with a win, a feat they achieved when they last paid a trip to Anfield in the League Cup back in January.

The South Coast side won three of their last five away matches with their two defeats coming against the current top two teams. They have yet to win away from home in the league against any team in the top seven.
