While few would doubt things have been more difficult than imaginable for Jurgen Klopp and his side so far this season, perhaps the winds are finally turning. Back on a winning run, another three points would go some way into keeping the morale high heading into the month-long break.
Saints, meanwhile, are on a miserable run of form, winning only three games all season. Still, they do have the intangible factor of the proverbial new manager bounce working in their favour, with Nathan Jones confirmed as their head coach this week to succeed the sacked Ralph Hasenhuttl.
