Sunday’s early Premier League clash sees Liverpool host Southampton, as the battle for Champions League spots continues.
Manchester City brushed Crystal Palace aside yesterday, to climb into third place in the league, and Liverpool will be keen to collect the three points today to reclaim that spot.
Standing in their way is a Southampton side which has proved to be troublesome this season, stopping the Reds from scoring in three games and knocking them out of the League Cup at the semifinal stage.
However, Southampton are now safely positioned in the top ten and have little to play for, as shown by two defeats and a tame draw in their last three matches.
A home win looks the likely result. With doubts about the fitness of the Brazilian star Coutinho, we at Lap of the Odds will rely on former Saints skipper Adam Lallana to inspire the home team with a man of the match performance.
Recommendation: Lallana to win man of the match at 5/1, Paddy Power
