Liverpool travel to Southampton this afternoon hoping to continue their perfect start to the Premier League season.
Southampton have lost their last four Premier League matches against Liverpool, conceding 11 goals and scoring just once in this run.
Liverpool have only lost one of their last 11 Premier League meetings with Southampton (W7 D3), going down 2-3 in March 2016. The Reds had lost five of their previous seven against Saints prior to this run.
Southampton have won their opening home Premier League game of the season in just one of their 20 previous seasons (W1 D10 L9), winning 3-2 against Blackburn Rovers in 2004-05.
Liverpool could equal their best ever Premier League winning run of 11 consecutive victories if they beat Southampton, with their previous run coming between February and April 2014 under Brendan Rodgers.
Liverpool ended the 2018-19 season with a run of four consecutive away Premier League wins – they haven’t won five in a row on the road since a run of six between February and April 2014.
