Back to winning ways for the Reds
After a defeat at West Ham before the international break brought a 20-game unbeaten streak to an end, Liverpool wasted no time getting back in the win column with an impressive 4-0 win over Arsenal.
Strike trio Salah, Mane and Diogo Jota all got on the scoresheet. All three are in the top five Premier League goalscorers so far this season.
Liverpool, scorers of 20 goals in their last six matches should be confident of getting back-to-back home victories before they make a short trip to Goodison Park for the Merseyside Derby versus Everton on Wednesday night.

Saints struggling for goals
Only Norwich on seven goals have scored less than Southampton’s 11. And guess who beat Southampton last week. However, it must be said that Southampton had double the shot attempts of Norwich and 63% of the possession.
There was also the unique circumstance of Dean Smith managing his second Premier League match in a row versus Southampton, maybe he seen some flaws in Southampton’s game live from his last match with Aston Villa.
For a Southampton side struggling to score, there couldn’t be a worse time to play against a Liverpool side who have only conceded 11 goals this season while scoring a league leading 35 goals.
Liverpool vs Southampton predictions
Although five out of the eight points earned away from home this calendar year have come this season, there is no getting around the fact that their away form is generally poor.
Looking positively, in the form table over the last six league matches, Southampton are on 10 points, only one behind Liverpool.
However, Liverpool simply cannot be ignored after 20 goals in their last six matches and last week’s thumping of Arsenal. We believe Liverpool will win by at least two clear goals; therefore, we recommend backing Liverpool at a -1 handicap.
Forwards Salah and Mane have combined for 18 of Liverpool’s 35 goals so far this season. Mane is also up against his former team here. We recommend backing both to score at any time in a Bet Builder.
