Match start: 20:00 (GMT+1)
Tournament: Championship of England. The Premier League.
In the 33rd round of the EPL Southampton will host the leader Liverpool.
But as for now the leadership of the Reds is very fragile. Now they are ahead of Manchester city with two points.
The Citizens have one less game and bearing in mind the fact that not so many matches have been left till the end of the championship, any mistake of the team from Merseyside can cause serious problems.
The last games in the EPL were very difficult for the team of Jurgen Klopp. It is enough to remember the goalless draw with Everton, hard win over an underdog Fulham (2:1) and gained three points in a game with Tottenham (2:1) thanks to Tobias Alderweireld’s own goal that was scored on the 90th minute.
Southampton is fighting for survival and in last two matches they have managed to leave the dangerous zone with 5points thanks to two wins in a row over Brighton (2:0) and comeback victory over Tottenham (2:1) that was gained on St Mary’s Stadium.
All these gave the chance for the Saints to gain points with the leader of the EPL.
It will be hard to do. Of course, Liverpool has some problems with conversion of the scoring moments but they are playing aggressively.
Southampton though without such aggressive attack but during home matches they are very active in attack.
Though they don’t score a lot but on St Mary’s Stadium they have scored in 10 matches in a row and this can indicate on a scoring match from both sides.
