Paddy’s football ambassador Phil Thompson has linked up with PPTV once again to discuss his favourite subject – Liverpool FC.

The Champions head to Southampton on Monday evening looking to get back to winning ways while The Saints will have a similar brief after a barren spell. But which was is this one going to go, Thommo?

Southampton v Liverpool

Well, Liverpool need a win. As we saw against Newcastle we created so many chances. Bobby Firmino miss-controlled about three times in the box when a good touch would have had him in on goal. Mo Salah’s final touch, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s… it was frustrating to watch as a Liverpool fan.

Normally after you score a bagful of goals it dries up. That seems to be what’s happened against West Brom and certainly against Newcastle.

Southampton, just at the moment, they’ve had their peak and now they’re having a little bit of a trough. But, they’ve got the most clean sheets at home with five out of their eight games which is quite something.

They’ve got one or two injuries so that could be very worrying for them. They’ve not won in four Premier League games at the moment and they were flying at one point.

It was wonderful to see Thiago back last time, it was too much safety first before he came back. He’s only got one thing in his mind and that’s to play the ball forward.

I’m not sure Southampton will pack the defence, park the bus, but I think Thiago will be vital. Playing in holding midfield he can dictate the football match.

THOMMO’S TIPS: Liverpool have got injuries but I do think this is an away victory for the Reds of Merseyside. I’m going to go for 2-0 to Liverpool.

I think Sadio Mane will Score Anytime, playing against his old club, and Mo Salah will Score Anytime as well. Come on the mighty Reds!
