Paul Ince believes Liverpool FC will have too much for Southampton in their Premier League meeting at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

The Merseyside outfit are looking to record a fourth successive win following victories over Huddersfield Town, Maribor and West Ham United to build some much-needed momentum heading into the festive schedule.

Liverpool FC were 4-1 winners against West Ham at the London Stadium in their last Premier League games thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joel Matip.

The Reds have only conceded one goal at Anfield this season and are unbeaten in five home games ahead of the visit of Southampton.

Liverpool FC failed to score in four games against the Saints last season and Shane Long’s winner at Anfield denied Klopp’s men a place in the League Cup final.

Former Liverpool FC midfielder Ince believes the Reds should find a way to get past a struggling Southampton team.

“You can’t trust that Liverpool defence!” Ince told the Daily Express.

“Time and time again we have learnt that, and this game will be no exception. I do think though, that at the end of the day, Jurgen Klopp’s side will have a little too much in the tank for Saints.”

Liverpool FC signed four players in the summer transfer window after Klopp brought in Oxlade-Chamberlain, Dominic Solanke, Andy Robertson and Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Reds are in fifth place in the Premier League table and four points behind Chelsea, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot after 11 games.
