This is an early outlook on the Premier League game between Liverpool and Southampton, scheduled to take place on Saturday 8 May at Anfield.

Liverpool

It's been a rough couple of months for the defending champions. The Reds have been knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid and are on the brink of failing to qualify for the next European cup(s) through the domestic league.
Liverpool are currently in 6th spot with 54 points from 33 games. They trail Chelsea in 4th by 4 points and sit only 2 points above Everton in 8th (Everton with a game in hand!).

When facing bottom half teams at home last season, Liverpool's games saw on average 3.90 goals scored (over 2.5 goals in 80% of the games).
The numbers aren't that conclusive this season, but after the game against Manchester United there's only one option for the Champions League chasing Reds: full throttle ahead and a total of 12 points against Southampton, West Bromwich Albion, Burnley and Crystal Palace in the final games of the season.

Looking at the four most recent league games specifically, Liverpool have created on average 8.25 shots on target per game - the best attacking numbers in the Premier League right now. In the four most recent league games, Liverpool have conceded on average 4.00 shots on target per game - close to the league average in recent weeks.
