Jurgen Klopp will be aiming to clinch his sixth consecutive Premier League home win this season when his side host the Saints at Anfield

Liverpool have registered five consecutive wins in the Premier League and will be looking for their sixth when they host Southampton at Anfield on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's side also come off the backs of an emphatic 3-2 win against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League, with Roberto Firmino netting the winner deep into stoppage time after coming on as a second-half substitute.

The Reds have not won six games in a row in the Premiership era, with only Chelsea matching their five-game winning streak.

Match Preview


James Milner Daniel Sturridge Liverpool 2018-19

Klopp's current side have received criticism for not putting goals away as clinically as they did last season, with accusations of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane not doing their best in the final third, but that hasn't stopped the Reds from picking up five consecutive Premier League wins.

Liverpool head into the home fixture against the Saints buoyed by two massive victories against the high-profile likes of Tottenham and PSG, with both matches won through narrow one-goal margins.

A home fixture against 13th-placed Southampton may just be what Salah needs to regain momentum and form, though his two goals and two assists this season are the same as what he achieved this time last year.

The Egyptian was undeniably frustrated to have been unable to score against Tottenham and PSG which left the likes of Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Giorginio Wijnaldum stepping up in his goal-scoring absence.

Sturridge made his first ever Champions League start for Liverpool against PSG and scored, drafted in as first-choice forward ahead of Firmino who sat out the first half due to an eye injury.

The former Chelsea man may be putting pressure on competition for the front-three, ahead of what could be several key clashes with Liverpool over the next few weeks– including Chelsea twice in the league and Carabao Cup, Manchester City and an away trip to Napoli.
