As Southampton take on Liverpool at the St. Marys Stadium in a Friday night kick off, we shall look at the head-to-head statistics between these two sides at Hampshire.
Liverpool will travel to Hampshire to take on Southampton at St. Marys Stadium on Friday night. With Back-to-back victories, Jurgen Klopp will be keen to secure all three points against the very well drilled Ralph Hussenhuttl’s side in a tight encounter.
The Reds fans were worried to see Virgil Van Dijk strip his leg with the band following Spurs game, but the Dutch International is set to ease those apprehensions by taking part against his former side after being declared fit by Jurgen Klopp in the pre-match press conference. Liverpool have kinder fixtures than Manchester City in the forthcoming month and they will hope to take that as an advantage to win every single game.
On the other hand, Southampton have won their last two outings against Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League. The hosts are outside the relegation spot, but a victory will ease the pressure for the club because of the desperation to stay in England top flight.
It will be an interesting encounter as the Saints and Reds fight for a victory for two different reasons.
