Liverpool vs. Southampton scoring tips & value odds – 2018 EPL betting

Liverpool v Southampton

Liverpool v Southampton

Liverpool will return to EPL action this weekend after an exultant night of Champions League football on Tuesday.

This is one English Premier League game that provides a bevvy of betting options for punters on both sides of the pitch.

The Reds are set to welcome Southampton to Anfield on Saturday afternoon, as they look to pile the pressure on league leaders Chelsea.

Jurgen Klopp’s charges exhausted superlatives in their midweek European encounter, as they kicked off their Champions League campaign by outmuscling a star-studded Paris Saint-Germain side to register a memorable 3-2 win on home soil.

Daniel Sturridge, who was marking his return to the starting line-up following injury to Roberto Firmino, gave Liverpool the lead at the half hour mark. The 29-year old striker planted a thumping header from close range after connecting nicely with Andrew Robertson’s cross from the left: scoring the opener despite being a peripheral figure for most of the opening half.

It looked like it was going to be an easy night for the hosts when Juan Bernat felled Georginio Wijnaldum with a reckless challenge inside the box in the 36th minute- thereby conceding a penalty. James Milner, as reliable as ever, rose to the occasion and thumped the leather into the bottom-right corner facing the Kop-end with what was his tenth successive penalty conversion for the Reds in all competitions.

Going a second goal behind put the visitors under the cosh, but the French champions never once let their heads drop, as they halved the deficit five minutes before the break through Thomas Meunier. Robertson failed to clear his lines after Angel Di Maria whistled a cross from the left, allowing the Belgium international to convert from nine yards with an instinctive finish.

Liverpool continued to threaten and should have had a comfortable lead had Mohamed Salah’s goal not been disallowed midway through the second half. Instead, it was the Egyptian’s profligacy that sent shockwaves around Anfield, as his loose pass in the middle of the park was pounced on by Neymar who set up Kylian Mbappe for the equalizer in the 84th minute.

Roberto Firmino however came off the bench to win it for Liverpool in stoppage time, as the forward fired a low shot into the back of the net after PSG failed to clear from a corner. The defeat raised several questions as to why PSG’s squad still looks lopsided despite being exorbitantly assembled.

Southampton on the other hand had to share the spoils in the Premier League following a 2-2 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion at St Mary’s on Monday night. The hosts went into the break with the lead after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s sensational strike from a long way out, before doubling the advantage the in the 65th minute through a penalty by before Danny Ings- on loan from Liverpool.

Shane Duffy got on the finishing end of an Anthony Knockaert cross to score a free header just two minutes later; one that set the match on the precipice of a grandstand finish as Glenn Murray converted from twelve yards in the closing stages of the game to salvage a point for the Seagulls.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Rhian Brewster will continue with their prolonged spell on the sidelines due to long-term injuries, but Jurgen Klopp will certainly welcome the news of Dejan Lovren’s return to full training following a stomach injury sustained during Croatia’s World Cup campaign.

Liverpool vs. Southampton betting predictions

Liverpool will be buoyed by their midweek European triumph, and should as a matter of principle not have any qualms going past the Saints who have only churned out one win in their last five League matches.
