Liverpool’s chances of becoming Premier League champions in 2021-2022 are even more incredible after Manchester City has to share points with West Ham United. But for that, Liverpool must win in the last two matches, including against Southampton in the 37th round, Tuesday 17 May 2022, starting at 7.45 pm local time kick-off at St. Mary’s Stadium.
An additional one point obtained by City in Week 37 makes Liverpool currently four points behind the top of the standings. If they beat Southampton, the Reds will reduce the gap to just one point ahead of the last weekend where Liverpool has to face Leicester City while City plays Aston Villa.
Jurgen Klopp’s side travels to St. Mary’s Stadium with a win in the last two games in a row, beating Aston Villa 2-1 in the previous league game and lifting the FA Cup trophy by beating Chelsea on penalties. Even Mohamed Salah and co are unbeaten in the last 16 matches across competitions since mid-March 2022, with 13 wins and three draws.
When against Aston Villa, Joel Matip and Sadio Mane became Liverpool’s saviors who had fallen behind through Douglas Luiz’s early goal. This victory completes Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the Premier League away matches since January 2022 – 6 wins and two draws.
Contrary to the visitors, Southampton still needs additional points to avoid the threat of relegation. The Saints are 15th with just six points from the danger zone, which is still mathematically possible to catch through the last two games.

Southampton vs Liverpool Head-to-Head
The problem is, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side won just one of their last 11 league games before welcoming Liverpool, losing eight and drawing two. On this negative note, it seems complicated for the hosts to silence Liverpool’s toughness, even though in mid-April 2022, Southampton managed to beat another giant club, Arsenal, through Jan Bednarek’s single goal.
Interestingly, despite having managed eight wins in the last ten head-to-head meetings with Southampton in the Premier League, Liverpool has to admit the hosts’ advantage in the last visit to St. Mary’s Stadium in January 2021. At that time, a quick goal scored by Danny Ings in the second minute of the first half could not be answered by Liverpool.
