Liverpool could need a win at Southampton to stay in the top four. Opta rates their chances.

"Against Tottenham, Mohamed Salah became the fifth different Liverpool player to score 20+ goals in a Premier League campaign (Robbie Fowler, Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge), and only the second to do so in their debut campaign at the club (Torres, 24 in 2007-08)."

Salah is [2.30] to find the net.

There has been just one goal scored in the last two meetings between these sides in all competitions at St. Mary's - in the two before that, there were 12 goals scored. Under 1.5 goals is [4.7].

The Reds haven't conceded in any of their last three Premier League games against Southampton (W1 D2) - indeed, the last player to score against them was current Liverpool player Sadio Mane in March 2016. Liverpool are [3.3] to win to nil.

Saints ended their 12-game winless run with victory at West Bromwich Albion last week, and are looking to secure back-to-back wins in the Premier League for the first time since April 2017. Southampton are [4.7] to win.

Southampton are unbeaten in their six previous Premier League games played on a Sunday this season, though five of those have ended as draws (W1 vs Everton). The draw is [4.0].

Liverpool have only lost one of their last 17 Premier League games, winning 11 and drawing five. They are [1.85] to win.

Jurgen Klopp is set to face Southampton for the ninth time as Liverpool manager, his most faced opponent with the club - he has only won two of the previous eight games (D3 L3) and has only lost as many matches against Leicester and Swansea (also three). Southampton are [2.16] in the Double Chance market.

Klopp has won 49 of his 94 Premier League games in charge (D28 L17). Victory here will make him the 45th different manager to record 50 wins in the competition, and he'll be the ninth fastest to do so in terms of games (95). Liverpool are [2.88] to win to nil.

Sadio Mane has scored six goals in his last five Premier League appearances at St. Mary's Stadium. Mane is [3.0] to score.

Against Tottenham, Mohamed Salah became the fifth different Liverpool player to score 20+ goals in a Premier League campaign (Robbie Fowler, Fernando Torres, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge), and only the second to do so in their debut campaign at the club (Torres, 24 in 2007-08). Salah is [2.30] to find the net.

Virgil van Dijk has played in two of Liverpool's four Premier League games that he's been eligible for since signing from Southampton - the Reds have won both games in which he hasn't featured, and have failed to win either in which he's played (D1 L1). Southampton are [3.5] in the Draw No Bet market.
