Liverpool vs. Southampton: Premier League – Match Preview

Nathan Jones’ first game in charge of Southampton is a daunting trip to Anfield when they face Liverpool on Saturday.

Liverpool earned a first league away win of the season last time out when they won 2-1 away at Tottenham with Mohamed Salah scoring twice.

They edged past Derby County on penalties in the EFL Cup, with back-up keeper Caoimhin Kelleher saving three spot kicks.

Southampton also needed penalties to beat a League One side as they edged past Sheffield Wednesday.

A 4-1 home defeat to Newcastle United was Ralph Hasenhuttl’s last in charge of the club and he leaves the club 18th in the Premier League.
