Southampton had their moments against Liverpool but just could not find a way past the seemingly impenetrable wall of Alisson Becker, although Che Adams will certainly be reliving his missed opportunity after the Reds shot-stopper played the ball straight to him before redeeming himself with a save down low.
Sadio Mane opened the scoring against his former club before Thiago Alcantara‘s first Liverpool goal ultimately saw the soon-to-be dethroned champions march to a 2-0 success over Southampton, whose winless streak across all competitions has now stretched to five matches.
It is still mathematically possible Ralph Hasenhuttl‘s 16th-placed side to be demoted to Championship football, but victory on Tuesday would ensure survival no matter what happens in Fulham or West Bromwich Albion’s matches, although it has certainly been a woeful end to an initially promising campaign.
A spate of injuries to key men has hardly helped the Saints’ cause, and even though they have suffered defeat in only one of their last four Premier League matches at St Mary’s, they are without a clean sheet in seven on home soil.
Furthermore, only one game in that run has ended with Southampton taking all three points – their thrilling 3-2 win over Burnley last month – and midweek fixtures are not exactly their forte, as they have failed to win any of their last 10 league games on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursdays.
Palace were actually the latest victims of a midweek Saints win all the way back in January 2020, but the Eagles travel south with nothing but pride to play for after victory at already-relegated Sheffield United confirmed their survival.
Unsurprisingly, the star of the show was Eberechi Eze, who took just two minutes to set up the opener for Christian Benteke before adding gloss to the scoreline with a second in the 88th minute, and that result means that the Eagles will fly high in the top division for the 2021-22 season.
