Liverpool vs Southampton Match Prediction: Team News, Probable XI
While Thiago Alcantara, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott are yet to return to the squad for selection, the inclusion of Diogo Jota and Trent Alexander-Arnold to the squad will provide Jurgen Klopp with more tactical options in terms of team selection.
Liverpool (Probable XI): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Jones, Salah, Jota, Mane.
Southampton (Probable XI): McCarthy, Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters, Elyounoussi, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, Adams, Broja.
Key Players and Matchups
One of the most in-form strikers in the world at the moment, Mohammed Salah is someone the defence of Southhampton will have to cope with if they stand any chance of winning this matchup. Such has been his proficiency in front of goal that in the 2021/22 English Premier League season, Salah has already scored 10 goals in the 11 matches that he’s been a part of and has made 21 shots on target.
If Southampton stands any chance of victory in this matchup, they will be hoping for their centre-backs, especially Livramento and Bednarek, to help maintain their defensive shape against the likes of Liverpool’s Mane, Firmino, and Salah.
Although nothing can be said for certain, all the stats indicate that Liverpool will emerge victorious in this encounter against Southampton in the English Premier League.
