Southampton vs Liverpool, EPL 04.01.2021

Liverpool will be looking to create a cushion at the top of the Premier League table when they visit St Mary’s to take on Southampton in their opening match of 2021 on Monday night.

 

 

SOUTHAMPTON

Southampton have had one of their best starts to a Premier League season since 2014-15 in which they ended up in 7th place but they’ve suffered a loss of form, in their recent outings, failing to win any of their last four games. They drew at Arsenal before losing narrowly to Man City at home, both of which are fair results on paper. However, back-to-back goalless draws against Fulham and West Ham to end the year left a bitter taste in the mouth of their expectant fans.

This four-game meltdown has seen them drop from Champions League places down to the midtable and Ralph Hasenhuttl, who missed the last game due to isolation, will be hoping to bring some of the charms from the early part of the season when he resumes his sideline duties.

Soton have struggled in recent years to get anything from this fixture and they will hope to end that run and regain the momentum they had to start the season.

LIVERPOOL

Like their hosts, Liverpool have also come up short in their last couple of games, drawing 1-1 at home on Boxing Day before ending the year with another deflating goalless draw at Newcastle, with both of these results proving costly as the two Manchester clubs closed the gap at the top, with United moving level on points with them and City a further four points behind but with a game in hand.

With the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Leicester City and even Everton who had emerged as possible challengers this season fading away into the background, the Reds are fully aware of the threat the Mancunian outfits pose, particularly given the highly anticipated face-off with United at Anfield is set for to be played in just a couple of weeks.

SOUTHAMPTON V LIVERPOOL BETTING TIPS

After the 7 goal blitzkrieg at Crystal Palace, Liverpool have gone ice-cold, picking just a point and scoring just a goal in their next two games, against West Brom and Newcastle, which on paper looked to be relatively friendly fixtures. Southampton are a cut above these two teams and although Liverpool have found great success against them in recent years, they will find this Southampton team hard to break down. Ralph Hasenhuttl has instilled a defensive mindset in the team. Despite their own recent struggles, the Saints have only conceded 4 goals in their last eight games. We expect a hard-fought encounter, with limited scoring opportunities and we are going for Under 3.5 goals @ 1.68 as our first betting tip here.

With the chasing pack breathing down their necks, we expect Liverpool to dominate the proceedings here as they look for three valuable points to give them some respite at the top. As a result, they will are likely to camp in the Soton half as they launch waves of attacks. These attacks will likely yield them more corners in the game hence why we are backing that option @ 1.47 with Betway betting app for our final call for this game.
