A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton climbed out of the bottom three thanks to Saturday’s 3-2 victory at West Brom, with Mario Lemina, Jack Stephens and James Ward-Prowse doing the damage either side of half-time.
That welcome first top-flight triumph in 13 attempts followed a run of three straight Premier League draws, with Saints also beating Fulham and Watford in the FA Cup during an encouraging run of form.
“We need to keep going now,” said Stephens. “There’s no point coming here and getting a big three points then going on losing or drawing.
“We need to use this to push on now and get out of the situation we’re in.”
Lemina, who just last June played for Juventus in the Champions League final, added: “Let’s hope we can build on this momentum. This needs to be the standard that we set going forwards.”
Saints have failed to score in just two of their last 16 games and that was when visiting Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford.
Looking at the Southampton vs Liverpool odds, we like 7/2 for a score draw here.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool came out of an entertaining end-to-end encounter with Tottenham with a 2-2 draw that showed the good and bad points of Jurgen Klopp’s team.
Mohamed Salah took his Premier League tally for the season to 21 with a double strike as the Reds again impressed going forward, especially in the first half.
However, the defensive frailties which have held them back in recent years remain and Liverpool wilted when put under pressure in the second period.
“We could have done better in the second half for sure, but it was very intense,” insisted Klopp.
With both the Reds and the Saints trying to play positive football at the moment, 23/2 for another 2-2 scoreline here is worth adding to our Southampton vs Liverpool betting tips.
