Liverpool: The pressure is on the Reds. The games against far weaker teams have to result in three points from here on out. Jurgen Klopp will have his guys ready after the emotional victory over Tottenham on Sunday. This team is healthy and Andrew Robertson has been on fire with nine assists this season.
Southampton: This is one of those games where you are playing a far superior opponent, and a draw would feel like a win. Look for the Saints to sit back defensively and try their best to get a 0-0 draw or a 1-1 draw. Having to go forward in search of a goal could prove costly with a defense that at times is well over matched.
Liverpool vs. Southampton prediction
Mohamed Salah gets two goals, the defensive keeps a clean sheet and the Reds return to first place in the league.
