Southampton News and Form

The Saints got off to a bad start. After surviving a tough relegation battle last season, with new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl getting them safe, there was a great deal of new optimism surrounding them in pre-season. That came crashing down as they were beaten 3-0 at Turf Moor by Burnley last week. So they have to do dust themselves off from that bruising loss and look to get something going in their first game at St Mary’s.

In last season’s top-flight campaign Southampton posted a W5 D8 L6 record. They didn’t win any of their first seven home games (D5 L2) then they got their first one against a top-six side, Arsenal. Southampton’s home record against the top eight last season wasn’t all that bad as they went W4 D1 L3. 78% of all games at St Mary’s went over 2.5 goals with the Saints only managing a clean sheet in 16% of their home fixtures. They did open the scoring in 12 of their 19 home games last season.

Liverpool News and Form

Community Shield. Premier League. UEFA Super Cup. It’s been a busy start to the new season for Liverpool. The Reds will be expected to deliver the goods as they head to the south coast on Saturday. They made light work for their opening game of the new domestic season, a 4-1 win at home over Norwich. They looked right on the money in their attack, no sign of any early season rust or anything.

Mo Salah took just 20 minutes to open his account for the season and he is the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite for this fixture* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 14th, 2019 at 6:12 p.m.). The Reds were just formidable last season and out on their travels in the Premier League they posted a W13 D5 L1 record. The one loss was at Manchester City, their only defeat of the entire season.

The Reds closed out the season a four-match winning streak away from home. Liverpool averaged 1.8 goals per away game last season and their fantastic defence, led by Virgil van Dijk conceded an average of just 0.6 goals per away game, taking a clean sheet in 47% of all away fixtures. Impressive stuff and they won all road fixture against sides who finished in the bottom half of the table, scoring at least two goals in 8 of those 10 such fixtures.
