Following their first defeat of this campaign against West Ham, Liverpool have replied with back to back wins, crushing Arsenal 4-0 in the Premier League last week and picking up a comprehensive 2-0 win over Porto in the Champions League.

Mohamed Salah has been in imperious form this season, contributing to 24 goals across all competitions for the Reds.

The Reds’ relentless form would be worrying news for the visiting side, Southampton this weekend.

Another three points would help Jurgen Klopp’s side close the gap with leaders Chelsea.

The fearsome trio Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota would try to wreak havoc against the Saints as they did against the Gunners last week.

Thiago Alcantara put on a match-winning display against Porto and the Spanish midfielder would look to build on that.

Possible Liverpool line-up

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane

Injured: Joe Gomez, Roberto Firmino, Curtis Jones, Harvey Elliot

Doubtful: Naby Keita

Suspended: None


Southampton have been below their standards in the Premier League this season, currently sitting at 13th in the table.

Their momentum has dwindled following their shock defeat to Norwich City in the Premier League last week.

McCarthy; Tino Livramento, Mohammed Salisu, Bednarek, Kyle Walker-Peters; Nathan Redmond, James Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Mohamed Elyounoussi; Che Adams, Adam Armstrong

Injured players: Stuart Armstrong, Jack Stephens
