Liverpool vs Southampton EFL Cup Semi Final Preview

Liverpool play hosts to Southampton at Anfield in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final clash on Wednesday night, and can’t entertain anything less than a win on the night if they are to reach the final.

The Reds suffered a 1-0 defeat to the South Coast outfit at St Mary’s earlier in the month, and need a response to turn the aggregate scoreline on its head and reach the last two of the competition for a second consecutive season.

Liverpool lost to Manchester City on penalties in last season’s cup final and will be desperate for a chance at redemption. However, Jurgen Klopp’s men will have to do it the hard way with a one goal deficit to overcome this week.

The Reds come into the clash with Southampton having failed to win their last four games in all competitions so they may be vulnerable, especially to a Saints side coming off the back of a 3-0 win over defending champions Leicester City.

Southampton boast the bragging rights in recent head-to-heads with Liverpool too, winning two and drawing two of their last four meetings in all competitions.

As a result, Southampton are 1/1 with Sky Bet to qualify as they only need to avoid defeat at Anfield. However, Liverpool’s home record has been formidable for the large part which could be the deciding factor in who goes through to face either Hull City or Manchester United in the final.

Liverpool have won nine and drawn three of their 13 home games in all competitions this season, beating the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City.

They have gone two without a win at Anfield, losing most recently in the division, but their quest to triumph in the EFL Cup is sure to see a response. As a result, Liverpool are 8/11 with Sky Bet to qualify on Wednesday night, but it’s sure to be a close encounter.
