We’re back with another Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net, after yet another front page grabbing week for the English game. We’ll be concentrating on what’s likely to happen on the pitch though with our Premier League tips, predictions and betting odds.
For our Premier League predictions today we’re focussing on Liverpool’s clash with Southampton at Anfield this coming Sunday evening. Our Premier League tips, betting odds and predictions for this must win fixture for the Reds follow on below.
Realistically, Liverpool have to win each of their last five games if they are to find themselves inside the Champions League sports come the end of the season. How do our Premier League predictions look for Liverpool? After last Sunday’s game at United was postponed, Liverpool will be well rested for this one. It should also favour Klopp’s men that the first of their five must wins is now against a ‘lesser’ opponent. Aside from the long term injuries that includes Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool’s squad is largely fully fit.
While Liverpool have to win this game on Sunday, there’s far less riding on it for the Saints. However a win at Anfield on Sunday would see them hit the coveted 40 point park to secure safety. Regardless though, with 37 points and five games to play, Southampton would need to capitulate and have Fulham and/or West Brom to win all of their remaining games to be relegated. The Saints did manage an impressive draw vs Leicester City last Friday though, so they are showing some fight towards the end of the season.
Southampton won the first meeting of this season back in January, in a game that started the Liverpool downturn that defied our Premier League predictions and has come to define their season. Prior to that though, Liverpool had won their last six on the bounce against the Saints, including a 4-0 win the last time the pair met at Anfield last season. When it comes to meetings at Anfield, Southampton haven’t gotten the better of the Reds on their own patch since 2013.
Below we’ve provided you with the results from the last five matches between Liverpool and Southampton as well as three statistical highlights. Our Premier LEague prediction weekend has been brought to you using this info and our expert analysis.
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions today all point to a Reds win on Sunday night.
Both sides go into this game well rested, so hopefully we’ll see a high energy and entertaining contest. Liverpool and Southampton are both teams who like to play on the front foot, but Liverpool’s superior quality should see them come out on top in the end. Given recent performances and finishing in front of goal, we don’t see this being a high scoring thriller. Our betting tip for this fixture is to back exactly three goals at odds of 4 with Bet365. The three goals will either come in the form of a 2-1 or 3-0 win for Liverpool. The Reds’ las two Premier League victories had exactly three goals in the game, while two of Southampton’s last three losses have been three goal games. If you’re looking to back a goalscorer, look no further than Mo Salah – Liverpool’s one constant in what has been a tumultuous season.
