You no longer need to create artificial tension in the Premier League. There is no race for the championship. Liverpool will climb the English football throne again after 30 years. The air is out in this regard, but there are still a few records to be broken. The media speculate wildly about what the Reds are still capable of this season.
Liverpool vs Southampton Betting Predictions and Odds
Manchester City scored 100 points in the 2017/18 season. With 14 games remaining from the LFC and currently 70 points, this will be difficult, but it is doable. Arsenal made a series of 49 unbeaten games in the Premier League in 2003 and 2004. Jürgen Klopp’s team is currently 41 games without defeat.
Regardless of whether Liverpool breaks these records. The current season can only be described inadequately, even with newly constructed superlatives. At the moment, the LFC has a lead of 19 points in the Premier League table over the “pursuer” Manchester City. This means that the Reds still need a maximum of eight victories to claim the championship.
For the upcoming opponent from Southampton, the task could not be any more difficult on Saturday. The Saints are in ninth place in the classification and are currently still fighting for their entry into the Europa League. In general, the prediction can only go in the direction of the Reds before the game between Liverpool and Southampton.
Southampton, however, is currently very strong abroad. Perhaps Ralph Hasenhüttl’s team is capable of ending or at least interrupting the mega run of the championship leader. Between Liverpool and Southampton there is only one tip that has something to do with a successful game of the hosts.
Before the short winter break, the Reds will let off steam again before the batteries can be refilled after Jürgen Klopp announced that he would play a young team in the replay in the FA Cup against Shrewsbury next Tuesday.
Liverpool – Statistics & current form
The Reds continue to march from victory to victory. It cannot be ruled out that Jürgen Klopp and his team will even win the double of the championship and Champions League this season. Whether it can be enough for the FA Cup depends on which team Kloppo will send against Shrewsbury on Tuesday.
First of all, however, the focus is exclusively on the Saints. Liverpool have won 15 consecutive times in the Premier League. For the first time in history, the Reds have won at least once in a season against every league rival. Another record that Jürgen Klopp can make a catch of.
The last competitive game defeat on Anfield occurred on September 26, 2018, when Chelsea lost 1-2. The fans in Liverpool no longer know what it feels like to come home after a bankruptcy. Therefore, the odds for a Reds victory between Liverpool and Southampton should also be the first choice this Saturday.
Last Wednesday, the LFC played the catch-up game at West Ham United, which had to be rescheduled due to the FIFA Club World Cup in December. With 2: 0 there was no problem to celebrate the next victory. Mo Salah scored the 1-0 lead before the break. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain added the goal to the 2-0 final score in the second section.
Despite this immense lead in the table, Jürgen Klopp remains undercover. He does not yet accept congratulations on winning the title.
“You have to dive into a season. You can hardly breathe – and after 38 games you show up and see what the result is. ” – Jürgen Klopp
When asked about the possible championship, the coach is rather cryptic and uses a metaphor from swimming. At some point, however, Kloppo can no longer avoid seeing the terrific situation as it is.
In terms of personnel, there could be one or two changes compared to Wednesday. Takumi Minamino could be an alternative for Divock Origi. Fabinho should start for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The three injured James Milner, Sadio Mane and Nathaniel Clyne will still be missing.
Probable lineup of Liverpool:
↳ Alisson – Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson – Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson – Origi, Salah, Firmino
↳ Coach: Klopp
Last Liverpool games:

⚽️ 01/23/2020 – Wolverhampton vs. Liverpool 1: 2 (Premier League)

Southampton – Statistics & current form
Southampton FC faces the same fate as the Liverpool team. The Saints will have to play a FA Cup replay during the Premier League’s short winter break. However, there are no negative reactions from the southern English. Rather, you accept the situation like this.
That’s because the FA Cup can be a good way for the Saints to move into the Europa League. If a tough chunk of sails with the Reds, so much the better for Ralph Hasenhüttl and his kickers. In the first place, however, the Southampton Football Club relies on its own strengths and these have been in the opponent’s place in the last few weeks.
Southampton have all won the last four away games in the Premier League. The opponents were by no means just light fare. Among other things, there were victories with the two top teams Leicester City and Chelsea. Therefore, one or the other may tend to make a prediction of an away win between Liverpool and Southampton.
Last weekend there was a home game in the FA Cup at St. Marys Stadium. The Tottenham Hotspurs were guests and in the end the two opponents parted with a 1-1 draw that earned the Saints the replay mentioned. However, Sofiane Boufal was only able to compensate for the 0-1 deficit late.
Ralph Hasenhüttl does not necessarily assume that his team will continue the run in away games.
“Either you win or you learn.” – Ralph Hasenhuettl
Nowhere in the Premier League are grapes hanging higher than on Anfield. The Austrian does not consider a victory impossible. If that doesn’t work, he wants to learn his lessons from a possible defeat.
The Saints are currently looking very well in terms of personnel. With Sam McQueen and Yan Valery there are only two injured players, but they are not to be counted in the first choice anyway. Otherwise, all players are in good shape and possibly there will be a debut for young Kyle Walker-Peters on Saturday, who was brought on loan from Tottenham to southern England.
Probable lineup of Southampton:
↳ McCarthy – Bertrand, Vestergaard, Stephens, Walker-Peters – Höjbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong, Redmond – Obafemi, Long
↳ Coach: Hasenhüttl
Last games from Southampton:
⚽️ 01/25/2020 – Southampton vs. Tottenham 1-1 (FA Cup)
⚽️ 01/21/2020 – Crystal Palace vs. Southampton 0-2 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/18/2020 – Southampton vs. Wolverhampton 2: 3 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/11/2020 – Leicester City vs. Southampton 1: 2 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/04/2020 – Southampton vs. Huddersfield Town 2-0 (FA Cup)
