Liverpool host Southampton in their Premier League fixture on Saturday

With almost a quarter of the Premier League 2021-22 campaign behind us, Liverpool find themselves in the thick of things at the top of the table. They returned to winning ways with a 4-0 win over Arsenal last week and will be looking to make it two in a row as they host Southampton at Anfield on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's men have lost just one game this term, with that loss coming at West Ham United earlier this month. They have won two games since and have kept a clean sheet in both games, beating Arsenal 4-0 last Saturday and overcoming Porto 2-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Southampton have found themselves in the middle of the table as usual and fell to a 2-1 loss at Norwich last week, which ended their two-game winning streak. Free-scoring Liverpool are the favorites against the Saints here.

Southampton need to work on their attacking output as they have managed to maintain a decent defensive record having let in 14 goals, just three more than the Reds. Klopp's side are strong favorites here and Anfield has been a fortress for them recently and they can make it three wins and three clean sheets across all competitions here.
