Southampton vs Liverpool: Prediction, kick off time, TV, live stream, team news and h2h results today

Liverpool face Southampton in the Premier League tonight needing to win to keep their title hopes alive.

After leaders Manchester City were held at West Ham on Sunday, Jurgen Klopp’s FA Cup winners have been given a chance to close to within just a single point of their rivals ahead of the final weekend.

Fresh off the back of their second Wembley triumph of the season, Liverpool are in boisterous mood and dreams of a quadruple cannot be dismissed as they head to St Mary’s.

The Saints sit in lower mid-table ahead of the clash and have lost three of their last four games amid criticism of manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.
