Everything you need to know ahead of the midweek clash at St. Mary’s
Liverpool head to Southampton on Tuedsay night, knowing they must keep cranking out the victories to stay in with a chance of winning the Premier League title as the season moves to the final day.
The Reds added their second trophy of the season on Saturday, winning the FA Cup on penalties, but victory here would still leave them behind Man City by a point with one game to play.
i mellomtiden, Southampton’s form has fallen off a cliff toward the end of the season and they are now bottom of their ‘mid-table mini-league’, sat in 15th following a run of just one win in 11 across all competitions.
They could still finish 11th if they win both their remaining games and everything elsewhere goes their way, but Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team have been maddeningly inconsistent all year.
Here’s everything you need to know before the match.

Hva er teamnyhetene?
Saints should be in good shape given the length of rest between matches, though Tino Livramento is sidelined with a long-term injury. There’s a decision to make in goal, with both Alex McCarthy and Fraser Forster returning to training recently.
Liverpool saw Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah come off during the FA Cup final at the weekend so they may not be risked with the Champions League final on the horizon. The only other injury absentee is Fabinho, so Jordan Henderson should continue as the deepest midfielder.
SOU – Forster, Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Salisu, Perraud, Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Elyounoussi, Broja, A Armstrong
LIV – Alisson, Gomez, Matip, Konate, Tsimikas, Jones, Henderson, Milner, Jota, Origi, Diaz
Liverpool to keep their slight quadruple hopes alive and ensure the title fight goes to the final weekend by picking up a convincing win. Southampton 0-3 Liverpool.
