Title hopefuls Liverpool will have to beat Southampton on Tuesday night if they are to keep hope of winning the league alive.

Liverpool are looking to reduce the point-gap at the top of the English Premier League table when they host Leeds United.

The reds have won five games in a row and are in second with 57 points, six behind league leaders Manchester City.

They beat Norwich 3-1 over the weekend, while Leeds were unfortunate to go down 4-2 against Man United.

Leeds’ tally of 29 goals conceded on the road this term represents the worst defensive record of its kind in the top flight.

Jurgen Klopp’s side came out 3-0 winners in the reverse fixture at Elland Road and are out to complete the double over them.
