The match

Liverpool won the FA Cup on Saturday but their hopes of a quadruple are in big trouble. They are second in the Premier League and travel to Southampton who are 15th in the table. If leaders Manchester City win on Sunday against West Ham, that will take them six points clear of the Reds. That would mean anything less than a win for Liverpool at Southampton will see City win the title. Liverpool can only hope for City to slip up if that happens, even winning their last two league games won't guarantee them the title if City win their last league game. Recent good results for City have seen them go clear of Liverpool not just in points but goal difference too. Liverpool therefore won't just be out to beat Southampton and then Wolves but to score plenty of goals too. Liverpool have earned 21 points more than Southampton in the last ten league games. They have won 12 away league games with 14 of the last 16 won. The reverse fixture saw Liverpool win 4-0 and a result like that would suit them perfectly here.

Southampton are having another disappointing end to the season. They have lost three of their last four league games and in two of those they conceded four goals. The good news for the Saints is that they aren't in relegation trouble. Only five points have been earned from the last 10 league fixtures and have only got three points from the last five at home. That's a big drop in form after a ten game unbeaten league run before their form dipped. 12 goals have been conceded in the last five home Premier League games. Back Liverpool to get the win.

Key Statistics

  • Southampton have lost four of their last five home league games.
  • Southampton lost the reverse fixture 4-0.
  • Liverpool have won 14 of their last 16 away league matches.

The bet of our experts

The double has been completed and we now all know one thing. Liverpool are great at drawing with Chelsea at Wembley and winning on penalties. Now they return to the Premier League and the odds are against them winning the title. Even if Manchester City were to lose at West Ham on Sunday, a home win over Aston Villa in their final game is likely to make them champions. All Liverpool can do is beat Southampton and then Wolves and score plenty of goals. Now is not the time for Salah to get injured. Southampton are in poor form and conceding too many goals. Back Liverpool to win this and have a side bet on them doing so with over 2.5 goals in the game.
