About the match
Liverpool vs Southampton
The English Premier League
Date: Saturday, November 12, 2022
Kick-off at 16:00 UK/ 17:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool, England)
Southampton are now 18th in the Premier League standings and have struggled to make an impression this season. The Saints defeated Sheffield Wednesday on penalties in the Carabao Cup this week and will need to be at their best in this game.
Liverpool, on the other hand, is now ninth in the league rankings and has been plagued by inconsistency this season. The Merseyside giants defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in their previous league game and will try to boost the ante this weekend.
Here is all the information you require about the game.
Liverpool vs Southampton- Head to Head and Key Numbers
- Liverpool has a solid record against Southampton, having won 60 of the 116 matches played between the two teams, compared to 31 victories for Southampton.
- Liverpool have won nine of their past ten Premier League games against Southampton, scoring at least twice in each of those victories.
- Southampton is winless in their last eight Premier League away games against Liverpool, with their last league victory coming in 2013.
- Liverpool’s defeat to Leeds United at Anfield last month ended a Premier League unbeaten streak of 29 games at home.
- Liverpool have lost their last three games against opponents in the relegation zone, as well as this season’s matchups against Manchester United, Nottingham Forest, and Leeds United.
The trio of Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Arthur, and Naby Keita remain in Liverpool’s medical room, although Joel Matip has returned to training and has a limited chance of playing.
On the plus side, James Milner is likely to return from concussion protocol, increasing Klopp‘s alternatives in the engine room, and the Reds manager was not afraid to start Stefan Bajcetic, Calvin Ramsay, Melkamu Frauendorf, and Layton Stewart in the EFL Cup.
Meanwhile, Jones preferred a three-man back-line during his final season in control of Luton Town, and given the injuries to Valentino Livramento and Kyle Walker-Peters, he may continue with it here.
Juan Larios started at right-back against Newcastle before departing in the first half with an adductor injury, but there are no new concerns following Wednesday’s EFL Cup victory.
In midweek, stand-in manager Ruben Selles allowed Sekou Mara and Sam Edozie chances to perform, but Jones should trust Che Adams and Mohamed Elyounoussi at Anfield.
Liverpool possible starting lineup;
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson, Salah, Fabinho, Thiago, Elliott, Nunez, Firmino
Southampton possible starting lineup;
Bazunu, Lyanco, Bella-Kotchap, Salisu, Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse, Lavia, S. Armstrong, Perraud, Aribo, Adams
