Liverpool vs. Southampton: Premier League – Match Preview

Liverpool entertain Southampton on Sunday with the Reds still requiring some points to guarantee a Champions League spot.

Liverpool earned a vital 1-0 victory over Watford on Monday night as they seized upon rivals dropped points.

A stunning Emre Can goal before half-time was the difference to help Liverpool cement third spot.

Southampton were held to a goalless draw at home by Hull City last time out.

A late Dusan Tadic penalty was saved by Eldin Jakupovic as they missed the chance to close in on West Brom in eighth.
