Southampton vs Liverpool by Marcelino
Southampton are in 9th place and their home record is 5 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses. They have been playing well this season and in my opinion, deserve to be in a higher position on the table. They have no significant injuries.
Liverpool have been playing a very fun to watch offensive game this season. Suarez and Sturridge have been scoring regularly with 40 goals between them this season in the Premier league. Their defense has been inconsistent and very shaky at times. They are in 4th place and 5 points ahead on Spurs for the race to be top 4. They are also 4 points of the leaders, but their manager has been realistic and pointed out that they don't have the ambition to win the league, saying the league is Man City's to lose.
I am going to back Southampton to win this match. I believe that the home/away forms will play an important role in this match. Liverpool have been superb at home, winning 12 out of their 14 matches. However, their away record is less impressive at 5 wins, 4 losses and 4 defeats. Southampton hosted Liverpool 4 times in the Premierleague and won 3 of those games and lost 1. Southampton won the meeting between the 2 sides at Anfield earlier this season with a scoreline of 0-1, so they will be full of confidence vs Liverpool and I believe they can take advantage of Liverpool shaky defense and outscore Liverpool in this match.
