Southampton FC to host Liverpool FC at St Mary’s Stadium for the Premier League game on Tuesday at 1:30 AM IST. The visitors have acquired the number one position with 33 points while the hosts are currently at the ninth spot with 26 points.
Southampton played 16 matches out of which they won seven, lost four and had a draw on five occasions, while Liverpool also had 16 games, they were victorious nine times, lost once and had a draw on six occasions.
Liverpool aren’t at the top of the Premier League table as Manchester United also has the same number of points as the Reds. Klopp’s men have acquired the number one spot only on goal difference.
Southampton is yet to pocket a win in four league games. They have managed to draw their last two matches, playing out goalless draws against West Ham United and Fulham.
In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, Liverpool clearly has the upper hand as they won 57 games against Southampton and lost 30 matches. The two teams had 25 draws against each other in the last 112 matches.
Nathan Redmond and Jannik Vestergaard are set to miss the game for Southampton. Danny Ings is likely to start in the upcoming match.
Joel Matip and Naby Keita to miss out due to injury, the two players are likely to miss next week’s FA Cup third-round tie against Aston Villa. Thiago Alcantara could start after a fine cameo against Newcastle on Wednesday night.
