Southampton vs Liverpool LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture tonight


James Ward-Prowse‘s free-kicks in training

Liverpool are visiting Southampton this evening hoping to restore their three-point lead at the top of the Premier League table. There were wins this weekend for many of the chasing pack, with Tottenham, Manchester City and Leicester all closing the gap to the league leaders and Manchester United drawing level on 33 points, but Liverpool have the superior goal difference and can reassert their position with victory at St Mary’s.

Southampton have struggled for form in recent weeks and are without a win in their past four league games, a run which has seen Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side drop from second in the table to ninth. However, the return of Danny Ings to the starting line-up after injury has given Saints a boost and they will be hopeful he can inflict some damage on his former club tonight. 

Follow all the latest updates from the Premier League meeting at St Mary’s below.
