Fans can watch the Liverpool vs. Southampton football match live online as the English Premier League opens anew.
The teams kick off action Sunday at 1:30 pm local time from Anfield.
The match comes highly anticipated as Liverpool looks to overcome a season-ending slide that saw them fall out of the driver’s seat in the Premier League and let the league title slip away.
Suarez was best known this summer for getting kicked out of the World Cup for biting an opponent, and will be forced to miss the beginning of the La Liga season.
As Sports Illustrated writer Ben Lyttleton notes, Liverpool has taken a team approach to replace Suarez. Lyttleton wrote:
So how does Liverpool cope without Suarez? He scored a league-record 31 league goals last season (out of the club’s 101) and 23 (out of 71) the season before. In all competitions, 61 goals in 81 games are stunning figures. Impossible to replace, right? Well, that’s the point. Liverpool has not tried to replace him; instead, it has brought in players to improve the squad’s depth, and competition for places.
But those who watch the Liverpool vs. Southampton football match live online will still see a squad with high expectations. After finishing eighth in 2012 and seventh in 2013, Liverpool finally made a move to the top of the league and ended only two points behind Manchester City.
Liverpool actually had a great chance to take the league title, with a five point lead with three matches remaining.
The match against Southampton could represent a good start. The Saints finished eighth last year, and a victory would give Liverpool a great start.
