LIVERPOOL (15-2-5) VS. SOUTHAMPTON (8-9-5)
Kickoff: Saturday, 12:30 p.m. ET
Stadium: Anfield, Liverpool
TV: NBCSN, UniMas 2, Fútbol Clásico
Line: Liverpool -2.5
Liverpool has recorded three straight wins since falling from a nine-point lead at the top of the table to just two points. One of those victories was a 5-1 shellacking of struggling West Ham on Sunday at Anfield. The likes of Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino caught the eye with their attacking displays. Liverpool made a habit of not scoring until the first 20 minutes against West Ham and this time they got it done early.
Southampton is on a little bit of a hot streak of its own. After dropping three of its previous four, it has strung together three wins in four matches. It got two of those wins by a single goal and one by a single goal margin. Will it repeat that formula this weekend?
Joe Gomez, Jordan Henderson and an improved penalty-area defense could put together a dominant performance to restore its spot atop the table.
Prediction: Liverpool 3, Southampton 1
