Liverpool has won each of their last four games against Southampton. They go on the road for the first time this season to try and make it five in a row.
Liverpool got an easy win last week against Norwich City and they beat Chelsea in the Super Cup Final this past week. The biggest news to report is that their backup goalie suffered an injury after the Super Cup Final. A fan ran onto the pitch to celebrate and when chased by security, they slid into the ankle of Adrian. This leaves much question as to who will be the goalie for Liverpool. This also is the second injury to a Liverpool keeper in a little over a week.
In their first Premier League match, Liverpool was able to score four goals. Technically they only scored three because the first goal was an own goal. Mohamad Salah, Virgil Van Dijk and Divock Orgi all got on the scoresheet in the blowout win. The second half did not mean that much, but they did not score as they let their foot off the gas. I expect another big performance from Liverpool as they may have to score even more to counter their injuries at goalkeeper.
The defense for Liverpool was quite good in their opening Premier League game. They held Norwich scoreless the entire first half, but did allow one goal in the second half. I think the goalie situation is going to be an issue. They could easily concede one or two goals if Adrian is unable to play. I still think Liverpool will be solid in the back line, but I am just worried about their replacement goalie.
Southampton got throttled by Burnley in the season opener. The final score to this game was 3-0. Despite this scoreline, they need to be feeling like they can beat Liverpool with the news coming out that Adrian is hurt. This may be their only chance to compete with Liverpool, so they have to take advantage at home.
The attack got nothing done at Burnley as they were held scoreless. They had 11 shots in this game but only 3 were on target. They even had 54% of possession. They were just unable to finish in the final third. I look for Southampton to be motivated and I believe they will score at least once against Liverpool.
The defense was good for the first half, holding Burnley to 0 goals. Then something went wrong and they saw three goals scored on them in a matter of 12 minutes. Liverpool will not be any easier as they have one of the best attacks in the league. I have no confidence in the Southampton defense and believe they will allow at least two goals.
Free Liverpool vs. Southampton EPL Prediction:
Liverpool’s attack is too good and I still like them to win this game.
4* Free EPL Betting Pick: OVER 3
There is no way I was laying a big number on Liverpool before their goalies went down, which even further confirms my unwillingness to bet them knowing they could be using their third keeper. I will however, take the over in this game because I think both goalkeepers are going to struggle.
EPL Free Score Prediction: Liverpool 3-2
