Southampton v Liverpool live stream, Tuesday 17 May, 7.45pm BST
Liverpool must beat Southampton on Tuesday to keep their Premier League title hopes alive.
It was close to being a perfect weekend for the Reds. After winning the FA Cup on Saturday by beating Chelsea (opens in new tab) on penalties at Wembley, Jurgen Klopp and his players watched West Ham (opens in new tab) storm into a 2-0 lead against Manchester City (opens in new tab) on Sunday.
Jarrod Bowen's brace in the first half threatened to blow the title race wide open, but City fought back after the break to earn a 2-2 draw. It could have been even better for Pep Guardiola's men, but Riyad Mahrez missed the chance to win the game for the champions by failing to convert from the penalty spot.
The result at the London Stadium ultimately keeps City's fate in their own hands: if they beat Aston Villa (opens in new tab) on the final day, they will be champions of England for a fourth time in five years.
That does not mean Tuesday's encounter at St Mary's is insignificant, though. Liverpool (opens in new tab) can move back to within a point of City by overcoming Ralph Hasenhuttl's side, who have lost only one of their last 10 matches in the Premier League. Southampton (opens in new tab) are now safe from relegation, but only because the teams below them in the table have run out of time to close the gap.
Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk were both forced off by injuries in the FA Cup final, and both players will need to be assessed by the club's medical team. Andy Robertson appeared to pick up a knock in injury time against Chelsea, while Fabinho missed the whole match and is a doubt for this one.
Southampton will be unable to call upon the services of Tino Livramento for the visit of Liverpool, while Fraser Forster and Stuart Armstrong could undergo late fitness tests in a bid to be fit for the Saints' final home game of the campaign.
Kick-off is at 7.45pm BST on Tuesday 17 May, and the game is being broadcast live by Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League (opens in new tab). See below for international broadcast options.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
