Liverpool will host Southampton at Anfield in the Premier League this weekend in the last gameweek before the winter break. Domestic and European fixtures will be suspended for a month due to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which commences on November 20.
Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are coming off the back of a penalty shootout triumph over Derby County in the Carabao Cup midweek. As well as UEFA Champions League and Premier League wins over Napoli and Tottenham Hotspur.
The Anfield outfit progressed to the knockout stages of the European competition, where they will face Real Madrid. Liverpool also currently occupy eighth place in the Premier League table and with a win on the weekend could climb as high as sixth.
Southampton are the Liverpudlian’s opponents this weekend and they have proven to have quite a disappointing and inconsistent start to the season, which led to the sacking of manager Ralph Hasenhuttl on Tuesday (November 8). The Saints are in the relegation zone in 18th place and lost 4-1 at home to Newcastle last Saturday.
It has since been confirmed that there will be a fresh face in the away dugout at Anfield on Saturday. Nathan Jones, who had a mightily impressive two spells at Luton Town, signed a three-and-a-half year deal with Southampton to become the team’s new first-team manager.
Will Liverpool go into the World Cup winter break on a high with a victory this weekend, or could they bear the brunt of Southampton’s new manager bounce? Here is everything you need to know about how to watch or keep up with the action.
