Southampton v Liverpool

Postby Conner99 » Thu Feb 27, 2014 10:45 pm

Southampton lost 3-1 to West Ham and are not quite as good as they were before Christmas





Liverpool were involved in a 7 goal thriller at Anfield , fortunately for manager Brendan Rodgers his side were the ones who ended up with the winner ..the 4-3 result kept them in 4th place and still in with a chance at the title perhaps .

I thought Southampton were unlucky to lose 3-1 at the Hammers and were actually the better team on the day.
I guess Brendan Rodgers will be hoping for a better defensive display at St Marys and will decide if Agger should start?

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool

Did you know that Daniel Sturridge has scored in eight consecutive Premier League appearances.
Only Ruud van Nistelrooy (10) has scored in more consecutive appearances in the history of the competition.

Any comments or predictions?

Liverpool have been hit and miss away this season, though they have an enviable strike partnership up front and are still in contention for the league with only a few months to play. Liverpool fans have to be happy to be in fourth spot with such a strong looking team (and no European ties to scupper their chances in the league) at this point in the season.

Southampton are a decent side, and have proved to be more than a 'one season wonder' with home draws against Man City, Arsenal and Man United this season. Never a place to visit where the away fan feels confident of three points, you have to give these men respect. Pochettino has proved to be one of the better foreign managers bussed in to keep the board and share holders happy after a 'wobble' in results (I do wish he would spend more time on perfecting his English though!).

This game could be anything, but I'll go with 1-1.

Boom! Lights out Southampton. Excellent goal by Liverpool, quick counter Sterling didn't need two touches. Second place, I hear the sound of optimistic hands rubbing together from Merseyside.

Great win, and I'm happier at extending the lead over Tottenham than staying on pace with Chelsea.

Hopefully the form continues over the last 10 and that cup games take their toll on the top 4 rivals.

Its just like the reds to make me start believing again ,I'm not implying a win
against Southampton away should scratch away any reservations and possibly
blur the lines between fantasy and reality ,but this is a massive victory and if
it hasn't already resurrected the hopeless fool who still harbours wild notions
about us making a concerted tilt for the title ......Then its pointed out where I
buried him.

Suarez was simply mesmerising earlier ,but Joe Allen was my unsung hero ,the
lad done more running than Henderson .....TIRELESS.

Mignolet has been criticised of late ,but I thought his save to deny Rodriguez
was immense in terms of the direction of the game ,Southampton were looking
threatening and a equalizer just before half time would have afforded them even
greater confidence whence they returned for the second half.

The real Glen Johnson actually made an appearance ,I'm hopeful we can now
remove his face from the back of the milk cartons we were on the verge of
printing up.....Seriously ,every player worked their socks off and our back four
looked impenetrable with Skrtel and Agger particularly colossal.

Rodgers has pitted his tactical acumen against one of the freshest and most
innovative in the premiership in Pochettino,and he emerged with all the spoils.

Game Intelligence aside this was a game were anything less than a significant
show of teeth would have proffered Pochettino and his impressive charges more
than a shard of light in this encounter.

Second in the league and rampant romanticism just about suppressed :wink:
