Liverpool

3 - 1

Southampton

Roberto Firmino 6 Che Adams 9
Darwin Núñez 21, 42

Liverpool beat Southampton thanks to Darwin Núñez heroics.

Roberto Firmino scored the match's first goal for Liverpool in the 6th minute after a set up by Andrew Robertson. Southampton's Che Adams responded with a tying goal in the 9th minute. With the match tied at 1-1, Liverpool's Darwin Núñez broke the tie with a 21st minute strike. Núñez added another in the 42nd to secure the win.

The Overview

  • The Reds converted their dominance of the ball (60% possession) into lots of chances, clocking up 15 shots.
  • Saints didn't generate enough chances, only mustering nine total shots throughout the contest.
  • The Reds' accuracy paid off well, 47% of their shots were on target.

The Details

Andrew Robertson posed a threat out wide all game, registering 9 crosses. The Reds completed 221 more passes than Saints, controlling the ball throughout and enabling them to take the win. For Southampton, it was a frustrating game for Adam Armstrong, who only registered 16 touches of the ball.

Liverpool make it back-to-back wins. Meanwhile, Southampton's woeful losing run continues.

Preview | November 12

Liverpool-Southampton

Southampton visit Liverpool.

Southampton head to Anfield with dreams of ending their streak of two straight Premier League defeats with a victory over Liverpool. A change in fortunes for Saints could see them jump Bournemouth and move into 17th place. That is far from a certainty for Southampton, who were defeated by the Reds 1-2 in their last league meeting.

Liverpool | WLLWW | 8th | Top Scorer: Roberto Firmino (6)

Liverpool come into the match having recorded 3 wins, 2 losses, and 0 draws in recent form. They hold a mid-table position of 8th. With an average of 1.9 xG (expected goals) per game, Liverpool rank 2nd in the league and they're clearly one of the most clinical sides in the league. For opportunities at goal, Trent Alexander-Arnold stands out. He has been a top playmaker this season with 53 passes into the box over the year (3rd in the EPL). On the attacking side, Mohamed Salah has been their leader this season with 46 shots taken (4th in the EPL).

Southampton | LLDWD | 18th | Top Scorer: C. Adams (3)

Southampton are winless in their last 3 matches and will look to stop the rot in this match. Creating chances and scoring goals has been a big problem for Southampton recently. Their average xG of 0.9 over the last 5 matches has been 4th lowest in the league. On the defensive side, Mohammed Salisu will be in the spotlight. He currently leads the team with 20 tackles won (11th in the EPL). Romain Perraud is one more player to keep an eye on. He has been their top setup man this season with two assists (29th in the EPL).

Liverpool-Southampton Prediction: 2-0

Unsurprisingly Liverpool's robust defence should help them secure another home win.

Did you know? In 1998 Southampton visited Liverpool and won 3-2. That stands as the most goals the Reds have conceded at home to Saints in the history of this matchup in the Premier League.

Can this be the start of a winning streak for the Reds? Will Saints halt their terrible form? You've seen the stats, now check out the odds for this and all the other Premier League matches over at PokerStars Sports.

Newcastle United

Romain Perraud 89 Miguel Almirón 35
Chris Wood 58
Joe Willock 62
Bruno Guimarães 90

Newcastle take three points away from St. Mary's.

This match was quite the high-scoring affair. Miguel Almirón netted the first goal of the match for Newcastle in the 35th minute. Following the initial score, Newcastle proceeded to add on 3 more goals, compared to Southampton's 1 as Newcastle took the three points.

The Overview

  • The Magpies' shot total of 7 could have been improved if they'd had more than 44% of the possession.
  • Going forward Saints looked dangerous, amassing 16 shots in total.
  • The Magpies' accuracy paid off well, 57% of their shots were on target.

The Details

For Southampton, James Ward-Prowse pushed hard to create chances, but his 11 crosses weren't enough to affect the outcome, while the Magpies did a good job of cutting off the supply to Theo Walcott, limiting him to only 15 touches. Positives for Saints? Their superior passing game was clear for all to see; they completed 472 passes compared to the Magpies' 380.

It's another game, another loss for Southampton. Meanwhile, Newcastle keep their winning streak alive.

Southampton win on the road at Bournemouth

The Overview

  • Saints managed nine shots with their 47% possession, while the Cherries outperformed the competition with 15 attempts.
  • The scoreline could have been more impressive if Saints had their shooting boots on, with their shot accuracy down at 33%.

The Details

Nothing to separate Southampton and West Ham.

Romain Perraud netted the first goal of the match for Southampton in the 20th minute. West Ham's Declan Rice retaliated with a tying goal in the 64th minute, but there was nothing between the teams for the remainder, leading to a share of the spoils.

The Overview

  • Saints might wonder how they got away with a point as the Hammers racked up 15 more shots than them throughout the game.

The Details
