Struggling SOU are all set to welcome 4th placed LIV for a Super Sunday clash set to take place at St. Marys Stadium, Southampton. Both teams have had contrasting seasons so far. LIV have lost only three matches this season, winning 14 and drawing 9 games. The battle for a spot in next season’s Champs League is closer than the title race. Only 6 points separates 2nd and 5th in the points table. On the other hand, SOU have struggled to conjure wins for long periods of time. However, they will be boosted by their win last week against WBA. Both teams will be going all out in search of a much-needed victory.

Watch out for
Guido Carrillo (SOU) – The Argentinian striker was a winter transfer window buy for SOU. He played a bit part role in his previous club, MON. He will hope that at his new club, he will be presented with enough opportunities to showcase the obvious talent he possesses. Before his transfer, Carrillo scored a total of 8 goals for his previous club. SOU will be hoping that he scores that much or more to help them finish the season in a respectable position.
Sadio Mane (LIV) – The 25-year-old midfielder is all set to feature for LIV against his old club. Mane has been hampered by injuries this season which has seen him feature in only 18 matches for the club in the league. He has contributed with 6 goals and 5 assists so far. LIV will hope that he can get back to his best form and fire on all cylinders to help LIV seal a place in the Champs League next season.
