The Reds will be looking for fourth win in the row for the first time in two years. Brendan Rodgers’ team will try to continue their great present form against low placed Southampton.
Southampton stands 16th in the EPL table with 28 points from 29 games, having 6 wins, 10 draws and 13 losses so far this season. The Saints are 4 points above the relegation zone clubs. Their present form has seen 1 win, 2 defeats and 2 draws from last five games. Last five home matches the Saints have finished with the same stats. They are right back into the relegation fight after 2 losses. Also they have hard matches against Liverpool and Chelsea. Southampton have drawn with Norwich last weekend.
Liverpool goes 6th in the league table with 45 points from 29 games, winning 12, drawing, 9 and losing 8 so far this season. Their present form has seen 1 loss and 4 straight wins from last five games. Last five away matches the Reds have finished with 2 defeats, 2 draws and 1 win. Liverpool managed an outstanding 3-2 win over Spurs last weekend. They have won 4 straight games in all competitions and are full of confidence after the Europa League exit.
Mauricio Pochettino has a fully fit team. Steven Davis and Danny Fox have recovered and are available for selection. Head coach has to decide over his back four. Maya Yoshida after his great performance in the 0-0 draw with Norwich could replace Nathaniel Clyne.
Pepe Reina will face a late fitness test after missing out a few trainings due to a calf injury. But Brad Jones could keep his place in goal. Brendan Rodgers can’t count on Joe Allen cause he requires surgery. The Reds head coach has no new injury worries. Martin Skrtel is back and could replace Jamie Carragher in the centre of defence.
