What is the position of Southampton and Liverpool?

What is the form of Southampton as compared to Liverpool's?
Southampton started its 2018/2019 Premier League season on the wrong foot by suffering a 3-0 defeat in its first game of against Burnley. The outcome of the trip to Turf Moor contrasts the stellar preseason the Saints had considering they picked up three wins and a draw in the campaign.
Having suffered a relegation scare last season, the St Mary's outfit will aim to turn its fortune as soon as possible although it seems highly unlikely in the upcoming clash with European champions Liverpool.
The Reds started the new season with a bang, thrashing Norwich City 4-1 in the season's curtain-raiser last Friday. Jurgen Klopp's men followed up the excellent performance by defeating Chelsea in Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup Final. The Merseysiders should be high in confidence coming up against the Saints away from home.
