Southampton hosts Liverpool in round 17 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Monday, January 4th at St. Mary's Stadium (Southampton).
Under Ralph Hasenhuttl's management, the Saints gained the stability they desired. Southampton has solidly pulled away from the relegation zone, and now it has real prospects of advancing to European Cups. However, it is important to create a foothold for further progress, as well as to gain financial stability. Moreover, the team needs to establish a process of selling and replacing leaders. The ninth line in the standings is an excellent result for the team. The club is very careful about the process of organizing the roster, where purchases are made exclusively in a point mode. In the current season, Salisu, Walker-Peters, Diallo, and Walcott (on loan from Arsenal) became the newcomers of the team. Ward-Prowse, Ings, Adams, Bednarek, and Bertrand are doing well in Southampton.
Under the management of Jurgen Klopp, the Reds have transformed from an ever-promising team into a real grandee of world football. Liverpool is convincingly leading in the English Premier League standings, and it has advanced to the Champions League playoffs without any problems. The team only occasionally allows rivals to get hold of points (draws with West Bromwich and Fulham), which is more likely a consequence of underestimation on the part of the Premier League leader. Liverpool's summer transfer campaign does not look very successful so far. Thiago Alcantara constantly picks up injuries and cannot prove himself, Tsimikas does not match the Premier League level, and only Jota became a good enhancement for the Reds. The old-timers (Alisson, Salah, Mane, Firmino, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Van Dijk, and Fabinho) should lead the team to victories.
Everyone expects from Klopp's charges only domination on the football field and a bright game. This season, the Reds are showing themselves on the other side, relying on an unrestrained attack, and not on a reinforced concrete defense. The reason for this is Van Dijk's injury. Without the Dutchman, almost all matches of Liverpool are scoring. And the upcoming game will probably please the fans with an abundance of goals scored.
