Top of the table Liverpool head down to the South Coast of England to take on Southampton in the Premier League on Monday.
The Saints have a dismal recent record against Liverpool having lost each of their last six meetings with the Merseyside giants. Ralph Hasenhüttl has a massive task ahead of him to turn around a record that has seen his side scoring only two goals in those encounters while conceding 17.
Liverpool will be confident of extending their impressive run against Southampton that has seen them keeping six clean sheets in their last eight EPL meetings.
There is an interesting bit of trivia to keep an eye on tonight as the Saints have a unique record of beating title holders the season after their Premier League victories. All in all they have done it 10 times and against all six teams who have lifted the EPL title (Blackburn, Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Leicester City) and have a unique opportunity to add Liverpool to that list and make it a complete seven!
Southampton’s 1-0 win over Spurs recently moves them up to ninth on the table despite their recent form (W1 L1 D3) not being amongst the best in the Premier League.
