The Liverpool vs Southampton live stream features an up-and-down Liverpool taking on a Southampton side reeling from the sacking of manager Ralph Hasenhuttl —and you can watch it from anywhere with a VPN.
Liverpool are an enigma this season. Their last five games have seen defeats to relegation scrappers Leeds and Nottm Forest as well as victories against the much-vaunted Man City and last time out, a hard-fought triumph against an impressive Tottenham side. Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah seems to have rediscovered the form that won him a share of the golden boot last season with a double against Spurs taking his league tally to six so far this season. Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to use the World Cup break to reset his side’s inconsistencies and give players such as Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota a chance to return to full fitness. With recent rumors of owners FSG willing to listen to offers for the club, Klopp will want to put across his best self to any potential new owners with a win.
After nearly four years in charge, the Ralph Hasenhuttl reign at St Mary’s is over. The Austrian was relieved of his duties after the 4-1 defeat at home to Newcastle, leaving the Saints in 18th place. Southampton have the second-youngest squad in the Premier League and their inexperience has shown in front of goal this season. Che Adams has a respectable five strikes but no one else has scored more than two all season. Recruiting a regular goal-scorer in January will surely be top priority for the new manager, but they are not so easy to find. Southampton have not won at Anfield since 2013, but teams often play with newfound freedom just after a managerial change, and Saints fans will be praying for a bounce sooner rather than later. At the time of writing, Luton manager Nathan Jones looks to be set for the job, but having never managed in the premier league before, he will have some undertaking on his hands.
With Liverpool desperate to give fans something to cheer before the World Cup break, this could be a game of all-out attack for the reds. It will be fascinating too to see how Southampton react to their managerial change. It’s clear the Liverpool vs Southampton live stream has the potential to be a highlight of a busy Premier League gameweek.
Here's how they line up:
Liverpool: Alisson, Gomez, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Thiago, Firmino, Salah, Elliott, Robertson, Nunez, Alexander-Arnold
Southampton: Bazunu, Caleta-Car, Ward-Prowse, A Armstrong, Adams, Perraud, S Armstrong, Salisu, Elyounoussi, Bella-Kotchap, Lavia
