    Liverpool to Continue Title Challenge with Win Over Southampton

    There are several matches to be played in the English Premier League on Saturday the 27th of November including the meeting between Liverpool and Southampton.

    The game will be played at Anfield and the hosts begin the weekend in third place on 25 points while the visitors are in 13th place on 14 points.

    Liverpool come into the match on the back of a comfortable 2-0 win over Porto in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Progression to the knockout stages of the competition was already secure but despite several changes to the starting XI, Liverpool still came out on top.

    That result means Liverpool are undefeated in 18 of their 19 matches in all competitions this season. The only defeat came recently away from home in the Premier League against West Ham United but Liverpool soon put that behind them as they beat Arsenal 4-0 at home last weekend.

    Trends show Liverpool have not lost any of their last 15 home matches in all competitions. They are undefeated in their last 10 home Premier League fixtures but they have won only 2 of their 5 home league games this season.

    Both teams have scored in 3 of their last 5 home Premier League matches and Liverpool have scored 2 or more goals in each of their last 4 league games on home soil.

    Southampton make the trip to Anfield having lost 2-1 at Norwich City last weekend. It was a disappointing result against the team that were sitting bottom of the table and having opened the scoring after only 4 minutes, Southampton conceded the equaliser just 3 minutes later. Norwich City scored the winning goal in the 79th minute.

    That result means Southampton have won 3 of their last 8 matches in all competitions but have remained undefeated in 4 of their 5 most recent fixtures in the Premier League. The Saints have defeated Leeds United and Aston Villa at home plus Watford away.

    Trends show Southampton have a poor away record in terms of wins and they have recorded only 3 victories from their last 21 away Premier League matches. They have recorded just one victory from their 5 away Premier League games this season but have scored goals in 4 of those 5 away matches.

    Team news and Liverpool could have Curtis Jones and Naby Keita back for this game. However, Roberto Firmino and Joe Gomez remain on the treatment table.

    Southampton have doubts over the fitness of Stuart Armstrong and Moussa Djenepo. Jack Stephens is back in training following a knee injury.

    Southampton have been scoring goals when playing away from home in the Premier League this season but have been struggling to win matches.

    Liverpool showed what they are capable of when at their best against Arsenal last weekend and should come out on top here, winning with over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring.
