Liverpool v Southampton Prediction & Betting Tips – 18th November 201715th November 2017 / lee
Liverpool v Southampton Premier League, 18th November 3.00pm
Liverpool really needs to start gaining some ground on the top four and continuing the little bit of positive momentum that they have built for themselves. They won their last two games before the international break but still find themselves three points outside of the top four. But there should be points on offer for them in this one with Southampton struggling badly to collect wins this season. Liverpool are 4/11 odds-on at bet365 to win this game, with the draw at 19/5 and Southampton at 7/1
Liverpool v Southampton Betting Tips
The Reds will be looking for their third straight win in the Premier League after putting up strong wins over Huddersfield and West Ham before the international break. That was a welcome return to form from them because they had won just one of their previous six in the top flight and Jurgen Klopp was starting to feel the pressure. At home they have remained undefeated in a W3 D2 record and they have scored nine goals in those five fixtures, conceding just the one. Liverpool to win to nil at bet365 is probably going to have a lot of appeal to punters on the back of that and it can be backed at 11/8. But with the Saints not having offered much of an offensive threat at all this season, under 2.5 goals at 23/20 could well be the way to swing in this one as well. The Reds will be looking to win back to back league games for just the second time this season.
Last Six Premier League Head to Head
Liverpool 0 – 0 Southampton
Southampton 0 – 0 Liverpool
Southampton 3 – 2 Liverpool
Liverpool 1 – 1 Southampton
Southampton 0 – 2 Liverpool
Liverpool 2 – 1 Southampton
Last season’s fixtures between these two both ended in a 0-0 draw but up in the bet365 correct score market for this one, the Liverpool 2-0 option is a great 13/2 price, with the 1-0 home win at 15/2. Liverpool have been level at the break in four of their five games (W1) this season at Anfield in the league and a half time draw in this one isn’t a bad option at a price of 6/4 but then working on from there you have a Draw/Liverpool half time/full time bet trading at a price of 3/1. Top scorer for Liverpool this season is Mohamed Salah with a seven goal haul but no player has managed to score more than two goals at home for the Reds this season. Salah is the 6/5 anytime goalscorer favourite for the match as Liverpool look to snap a four match winless streak of league form against the Saints.
Current League Form (most recent last)
The Saints have enjoyed a bit of decent league form against Liverpool recently but they are heavy underdogs for this fixture. They have won just one of their last six Premier League games now and that was an edgy 1-0 home win over the out-of-form West Brom. There has been a serious lack of output from them in front of goal with just the nine goals scored in their eleven league games this season. They have failed to score in five matches this season and just before the international break they suffered a disappointing home loss against Burnley. Away from home Southampton have produced just the one victory, which was out at bottom side Crystal Palace, and overall have gone only W1 D2 L1 on the road.
Southampton’s top scorer this season in the league is Manolo Gabbiadini with just the three goals behind him. He is a pretty big 11/4 price to score in this fixture. Southampton have only netted the three goals away from home this season and two of them have been in the first half of their games. These two sides did meet four times last season and those game
s produced only the two goals in total (EFL Cup and League meetings) with the Saints winning both cup games 1-0. They are a huge price of 20/1 to land that same result in this one. They have only lost one of their last seven games against the Reds in all competitions now (W2 D4 L1) and you get the feeling, given the current standing that they wouldn’t be unhappy with a draw in this one at all.
Who will win – Liverpool v Southampton Predictions
Liverpool to win: There were signs that Liverpool were finding their feet again before the international break and you would expect them to deliver in this one. The Saints may put up some resistance but they aren’t a big attacking threat and the Reds can pick them off, winning to nil.
