Welcome to our Liverpool vs Southampton preview, prediction and head to head analysis. Liverpool are in 1oth place in the league. They are yet to win for their new manager, after draws at Spurs and at home to Rubin Kazan midweek. He will want them to win this desperately. Southampton have started the season well, and have only tasted defeat at the hands of Manchester United and Everton. The victory against Chelsea was especially good, but then they failed to get maximum points at home to Leicester. They will want to keep their good start going, and will be looking for a win or at least a point.
