Super Sunday from Anfield will see Liverpool take on Southampton at Anfield. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is still looking for his first win as Liverpool manager and he faces another tough game here against a good Southampton team. Liverpool are missing Daniel Sturridge, Jordan Henderson from their starting line up and have lost Gomez and Ings to long term injuries for the season. Christian Benteke is only back to fitness after a few weeks out and probably not fit enough to start tomorrow, Origi and Firminho are likely to start up front and Liverpool will look to break down Southampton team that have been brilliant over the last month. Liverpool have proven to be tough to beat of late with four draws in their last four games.
Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has seen his side move up the table steadily in recent weeks and a win tomorrow will see the Saints move up to sixth in the table. Pelle, Mane and Tadic have had an excellent month and the attacking trio are very tough to handle when on form. Pelle and Tadic in particular have been brilliant of late. An injury to Shane Long has robbed Koeman some of his strength in depth but Southampton proved with their 3-1 win against Chelsea that this is a team that fears no one and a trip to Anfield wont worry them.
While I think Southampton are very strong and will give Liverpool their fill of it tomorrow I think this game is set up to be a draw. Both teams know how to defend and I think that while Klopp will be looking for him first Liverpool win he will also be cognizant of the fact that a draw against Southampton is not a bad result. Take the draw here on a weekend of draws.
