After a disappointing 1:2 home defeat to Leeds United, Liverpool traveled to Tottenham. In this game, Mohamed Salah, the Merseyside winger, made the difference with a double. Thanks to Salah's productive play, the Reds beat the Londoners (2:1). They sit eighth in the EPL table with 19 points. Liverpool beat Derby County at home in the penalty shootout to progress to the fourth round of the FA Cup.
After beating Bournemouth 1:0, Southampton took only one point from the following three rounds of the English league. The home side drew 1:1 with Arsenal. Then, the Saints suffered an away defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace (0:1), and on home soil, they lost to Newcastle United (1:4). This result led to the management's decision to fire Ralph Hasenhüttl as head coach. Nathan Jones was recently appointed as the new coach. Currently, Southampton sits 18th in the EPL table.
Expert Betting Tips
Southampton needed a change. Nathan Jones will have a difficult period as head coach of the Saints, but the Welsh specialist has potential. He is known for his work with Luton Town, who were close to the relegation zone from the Championships in the 2020-21 season before making the playoffs for the Premier League in the next campaign. You can expect the Southampton players to try to prove themselves under the new coach. It will not be easy for Jurgen Klopp's side to pick up three points at home.
