With most of the Premier League fixture over for this weekend, Liverpool will look to take advantage of their extra days rest to get three points of the board and get that far closer to making the top 4 for a Champions League spot next season. This weekend they will be facing Southampton at home in what should be a really good game.
Southampton do not have much to play for this season and now it is up to them to be good players to show the fans what they are made off. That being said, I don’t expect a lot of effort since the incentive is not there and there a lot of tired legs in the changing rooms. This game will be tough and I do not think they will put up a strong fight.
Liverpool on the other hand know that they need three points to ensure that they can get their spot in the top 4. This game will be important with Manchester City winning yesterday and as a result I am expecting a strong performance from the guys. This team is filled with superstars that need the club to do well and the home crowd is a great asset to the side so I am hoping that the team will give the fans something to admire.
We are getting a good enough price on the Reds to win and I think we should take it since it is value. In addition to that, the under 2.5 goals is also a good bet since both sets of teams have issues in scoring and Southampton have a very solid defense.
