Liverpool were left frustrated after their 2-2 draw at home against Spurs last weekend and they will be looking to get back immediately to winning ways as they head to the south coast.

Southampton v Liverpool Betting Odds*
Liverpool 3/4, Draw 11/4, Southampton 10/3* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.)
Southampton News and Form
Southampton finally got that elusive win on the board as thy rolled out a 3-2 away win at West Brom last weekend. That was a huge victory for Southampton who started the weekend in the drop zone and it meant that it left West Brom on the bottom. That’s just what the Saints need to produce for themselves given the situation that they were in. That is a four-match undefeated streak of form that Southampton have put together now in the top flight (W1 D3) so that has been a bit better from them. Their last two league outings at St Mary’s have ended in a 1-1 draw and four of their last six at home have ended by that scoreline. In the bet365 correct score market a 1-1 draw is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.). Can they drive on from that important win last weekend? It may be tough in this one as the Saints have only won three league home games this season (D6 L5) and are on a six-match winless streak at home at the moment. They have scored in each of their last seven home games but have conceded in each of their last eight. Still, it may add up nicely to a both teams to score option offering a bit of value.
Liverpool News and Form
Liverpool almost had the beating of Spurs last weekend but conceded a penalty late into stoppage time to play out a draw. That is only the one defeat though that they have suffered in the top flight since losing against Tottenham way back in October so overall their form is still pretty solid. The only league loss that they have suffered in their last seven league match was at Swansea recently, but Liverpool immediately snapped back to winning away form as they took a 3-0 win at Huddersfield in their next game. Liverpool are W7 D3 L3 this season away from Anfield and they have scored so freely at an average of 2.5 goals per game away from home which has been an impressive return. However their defence has been pretty leaky on the road and many times this season we have seen many examples this term of them throwing away leads. 62% of their away games have gone over 3.5 which is staggering. Mo Salah was at it again last weekend with a brace and he is the bet365 7/2 outright first goalscorer favorite* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 8:13 p.m.). The Reds have been ahead at half time in seven of their away games this season and they have split their goals evenly over the first and second half of matches. The Reds have actually opened the scoring in 9 of their 13 road games.
Southampton v Liverpool Head to Head
The Saints were outclassed in a heavy defeat at Anfield earlier in the season and over the last eight meetings, the Saints are W3 D3 L3 against Liverpool in all competitions. The Saints have lost just one of their last six games against Liverpool home and away in all competitions. Down on the south coast, the Saints are unbeaten in their last two home games against Liverpool in the Premier League (W1 D1). Four of the last five games between these two of them have gone under 2.5 goals.
Who will win – Southampton v Liverpool Predictions
