Premier League 17/18: Southampton vs Liverpool - Lineups, Preview and Prediction

As for Liverpool, Klopp told reporters on Friday that his only concern was over Joe Gomez.

LIVERPOOL MANAGER JURGEN Klopp suspects that the reception for Virgil Van Dijk 'will not be the most friendly, ' when they travel to face Southampton on Sunday. Much of the focus in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham on Sunday was on the two penalties awarded against Liverpool late in the game, with Karius even saving one of them. They also might have one eye on their Champions League trip to Porto on Wednesday.

"Southampton are not in the best shape at the moment but it will be a hard and tough fight".

"It was an important game but now we have to continue". But the more I play, the more I train, the more I feel comfortable acting as an attacker and things are happening in a positive way for me and the team. The attention, however, will be on another ex-Saints Virgil Van Dijk who represented the Saints in the reverse fixture.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

But with several of the side's players enjoying some of their best-ever form - most notably James Ward-Prowse and Jack Stephens - the Saints could have their best chance of beating Liverpool since their meeting in the League Cup past year.

However, Liverpool haven't conceded in any of their last three Premier League games against Southampton.

Southampton earned their first Premier League victory in 13 attempts last week at the expense of West Brom.


On the day that a tribute was paid to former Baggie Cyrille Regis, this match was fittingly an attack-heavy classic in which the Saints triumphed over Regis' former club.

Jack Stephens has scored in three consecutive Southampton appearances, having failed to find the net in his first 38 competitive appearances for the club.

Liverpool: Karius; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Can, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mane. However, they're still to close for comfort after a disastrous two months which returned only seven points from 12 matches.

Results over the last month have shown the problem runs deeper than that.

Liverpool legend is convinced the Spurs are the main threat because Mauricio Pochettino's squad is always doing great in the second half of the season.

The Brazilian forward spoke of the influence of Jurgen Klopp and his progress after changing position to centre-forward, as well as his hopes for the remainder of the season.

Joel Matip could make his 50th Premier League appearance for Liverpool if the Cameroon worldwide is to feature in the Reds league fixture on the south coast. We are backing an away win as our prediction in this game.
