Premier League team news and fixtures for today

Liverpool’s title challenge is hanging by a thread, facing a Southampton side they’ve already knocked out of the FA Cup.

Jurgen Klopp’s side take on Southampton at Anfield, aiming to avoid defeat in a Premier League match for the second straight time.

Saturday’s defeat to champions Manchester City – the Reds’ fifth league loss of the season – marks a serious slip-up, after they were beaten 2-1 at home by Watford in the early rounds of the FA Cup.

But Liverpool aren’t the only team facing another challenge this weekend, with Tottenham hosting Manchester United, Chelsea coming up against Southampton and Everton up against Manchester City.

We’re here with the team news, your kick-off times and breaking stats for all the big Premier League matches this weekend.


Here’s the team news from this lunchtime’s away match at Liverpool…

Liverpool v Southampton

Daniel Sturridge, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Emre Can are in line to play after being named among Liverpool’s provisional squad for today’s Premier League clash with Southampton.

The Reds head into the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat to champions Manchester City, while the Saints are under pressure themselves after dropping to 11th place in the Premier League after just one win in their last seven games.

Everton v Manchester City

Everton and Manchester City kick off today’s Premier League game at Goodison Park, with City in a fascinating run of form and eight points clear at the top of the table.

Everton have won just one of their last 10 league matches and there’s plenty of concern around the Toffees on Merseyside with strikers Richarlison and Nikola Vlasic currently sidelined by injury.

Palace v Leicester

It’s a packed day of Premier League action, with Crystal Palace hosting Leicester at Selhurst Park on Sunday.

Roy Hodgson’s side have suffered 10 defeats in 15 league games this season, and have won just one of their last seven.

Leicester are unbeaten in four matches, in which they’ve collected 13 points.

Burnley v Tottenham

Burnley will hope to snap a seven-game winless run and record back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time this season when they welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Turf Moor.

Tottenham are undefeated in their last six home league games against Burnley and have won the last four encounters.
