Southampton vs Liverpool Tips
Betting Tip: Liverpool to Score in Both Havles
Fresh off the back of their FA Cup final victory over Chelsea on Saturday, Liverpool returns to Premier League action when they travel to Southampton on Tuesday night.
It was a gruelling 120 minutes under the arch at Wembley and whilst Jurgen Klopp will be delighted to have secured his second piece of silverware this season, the loss of Virgil Van Dijk and Mohamed Salah will leave a bitter taste. However, even with those two losses, the ‘Reds’ should blow away their opposition here and they’ve scored in both halves in 12 of their 18 league away matches this season - more than any other side.
Meanwhile, the ‘Saints’ will be looking forward to the end of the campaign and they’re shipping goals with alarming regularity. They’ve conceded an average of 2.33 goals per game since the beginning of March and have been losing at half-time in five of their last seven fixtures.
Manchester City’s draw at West Ham means a Liverpool win puts the ‘Reds’ to within a point off the top and they’ll be desperate to see the title decided on the final day.
I’ll have a couple of points on this one.
Betting Tip: Liverpool to Win and Both Teams to Score
Liverpool will want to put as much pressure as they can on Manchester City, who stumbled last time out away to West Ham United. But it won’t be easy and they come into this one on just two days' rest which means this could be an interesting matchup.
The hosts have been pretty poor since the turn of the year and are conceding goals for fun, however, in the five home matches they’ve played against the other sides currently in the top six this season, they’ve hit the back of the net in four of them. The visitors will be without Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of their defence and Liverpool look much weaker without him in the backline.
Jurgen Klopp has the luxury of an abundance of quality in his squad and whilst his side will likely claim victory here, Southampton can create chances and hit the back of the net at least once.
I’ll take Liverpool to win with both teams scoring for half a point.
