Premier League

Sunday’s Premier League action concludes at St Mary’s Stadium where Southampton take on Liverpool.

The hosts are unbeaten in six games in all competitions, with the latest game in that run last weekend’s 3-2 victory against bottom-of-the-table West Bromwich Albion.

Despite their recent form, they go into the day just a point above the bottom three and could have slipped below the bottom line by kick-off with two of the sides below them playing earlier in the day.

Manager Mauricio Pellegrino could name the same side that won at the Hawthorns as he has no fresh injury concerns and forward duo Manolo Gabbiadini and Charlie Austin are still out.

Guido Carrillo can be backed at 8.0 (7/1) to get the first goal of the game, with Shane Long a 10.0 (9/1) chance with Betfair.

The home win is as highly priced as the 4.6 (18/5) on offer from Unibet with the visitors favourites at 1.82 (9/11) with the same firm. The draw can be backed at 4.0 (3/1) with Betfred.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have taken four points from their last two games and will reclaim third place from Tottenham Hotspur if they avoid defeat here.

They go into the game twenty-one points behind league leaders Manchester City but will be keen to keep the pressure on Manchester United with second place well in their sights.

Ragnar Klavan and Alberto Moreno are both available while Virgil van Dijk, who swapped the south coast for Merseyside last month is one of five players who could face their former side.

Top scorer Mo Salah is favourite to open the scoring at 4.9 (39/10) with Unibet ahead of Roberto Firmino, who is a 5.75 (19/4) chance with the same firm.

Salah scored twrel=”nofollow”ice as the Reds cruised to a 3-0 win when the sides met at Anfield back in November though each of the four clashes prior to that game saw fewer than 1.5 goals scored.

If you fancy that being the case once more, you can bet on there being one or no goals here at 4.75 (15/4) with a number of bookmakers.
