Can Southampton dash Liverpool's title hopes?

Jurgen Klopp and Ralph Hasenhuttl

Lying four points behind leaders Manchester City with two matches remaining, Liverpool need a victory at Southampton to keep their Premier League title hopes alive.

Man City's superior goal difference means that a draw at St Mary's would leave the Reds requiring an improbable combination of results on the final day to pip Pep Guardiola's men.

A Southampton win would result in City being crowned 2021/22 champions.
