The Saints will be eager to get over their terrible start when they entertain the free-scoring Merseysiders on the South Coast

Southampton tackle Liverpool at the St. Mary’s Stadium for their Premier League match on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds might head into this tie fatigued after needing extra-time and penalties to defeat Chelsea in the Uefa Super Cup on Wednesday. They are, however, victorious in their last four league meetings with the Saints, and a similar outcome is valued at (1.44) odds with bet365.

A stalemate is priced at (4.75) with the same bet firm.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are hopeful of having a better performance here after their 3-0 loss at Burnley last Saturday. With the backing of their own fans, the Souh Coast outfit are tipped to shock their visitors from Merseyside, at odds of (6.50).

Looking at the previous 21 head-to-head meetings between Southampton and Liverpool in all competitions, Liverpool recorded 10 victories compared to Southampton’s eight. The Saints scored in 14 consecutive league games on home soil, but have lost their last four matches against Jurgen Klopp's side by a margin of two goals or more.

Staking on either team to win and over 2.5 goals is priced at (1.80) with bet365

This outcome has occurred in three of their last four league meetings between them.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
