Southampton host Liverpool in a crucial tie which could provide the momentum for either club to get into the top 4 at the end of the season. Southampton were expected to trail away but they have held on well to their top 4 spot and could further improve their hold if they are to beat Liverpool. Liverpool on the other hand are unbeaten in their last 17 games and are coming off a hard fought 1-0 victory over Besiktas in the Europa League in midweek.

It took a late Mario Balotelli penalty but the real talking point from the game was the tussle between Henderson and Balotelli about who would be taking the penalty, nevertheless Liverpool would be looking to repeat the performance of last season when they brushed aside Southampton at St. Marys.

Southampton – 

Starting 11 – Forster, Clyne, Fonte (c), Yoshida, Targett, Wanyama, S. Davis, Ward-Prowse, Djuričić, Elia, Pellè.

Subs – K. Davis (GK), Gardos, Schneiderlin, Gardos, Long, Mané, Tadić, Reed.


Liverpool – 

Starting 11 – Mignolet, Can, Skrtel, Lovren, Henderson, Allen, Markovic, Ibe, Lallana, Coutinho, Sterling.

Subs – Ward, Johnson, Toure, Lambert, Sturridge, Moreno, Balotelli
