Liverpool vs Southampton Betting Tips
The Reds are showing no signs of backing down. They are at the very top of the Premier League table with 19 points more than Manchester City who are behind. Liverpool collected so many points by winning 23 games and playing only one draw. After 24 rounds, they are still without a defeat. And the best thing is that it seems they have no intention of slowing down.
They have one big reason not to slow down – the Reds could secure the title in the next few weeks! For that to happen, they would need their rivals Manchester City and Leicester City to drop some points. More importantly, the Reds would also need to win everything. And that’s exactly what they plan to do.
By securing the Premier League title while it’s still winter, Liverpool would be able to focus on retaining the Champions League title. This competition is back in February and until then, the Reds can be focused on English competitions, primarily the Premier League.
This Saturday, they’re welcoming Southampton at the Anfield. The club from South Coast has been playing very well lately, which has brought them to the middle of the table, one spot above Arsenal. This team is also just 3 points behind Manchester United, who are currently in 5th place.
In 2020, Southampton have taken a few big scalps. They beat Tottenham, Crystal Palace, and even Leicester City. The 2:1 away win over the Foxes came as a revenge for the humiliating 9:0 defeat in the first half of the season. When it comes to their last meeting with Liverpool, the score in August’s match was 2:1 for the Reds.
Obviously, Southampton definitely have what it takes to score against this team, however, this doesn’t mean they have what it takes to actually grab some points off Liverpool. Actually, there aren’t many teams that seem capable of snatching points off against the best team in England.

Liverpool Form and Latest News
The Reds haven’t scored more than 2 goals per game in 2020. It won’t be easy to do it this time as well, especially because one of their best players Mane is out due to an injury. Still, Salah has been in ana amazing form and other forwards are looking to show the world that they belong in Liverpool’s squad. This is the reason why it’s not crazy to expect the Reds to score at least 3 times on Saturday.
