By on April 5, 2019 - 19 views

Liverpool have the opportunity to go back to the top of the Premier League this evening with three points against Southampton.

The Reds are heavy favourites to win at St Mary’s as they start the weekend one point behind leaders Manchester City, who are in FA Cup semi-final action.

Southampton have won their last two games and three of their past four as
Ralph Hasenhüttl has dragged his side five points clear of the bottom three with six games to go.

The two teams for this evening’s game are confirmed as:

Southampton

Angus Gunn, Yan Valery, Maya Yoshida, Bednarek, Jannik Vestergaard, Ryan Bertrand; James Ward-Prowse, Oriol Romeu, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg; Shane Long, Nathan Redmond

Substitutes: Alex McCarthy, Jack Stephens, Matthew Targett, Stuart Armstrong, Sam Gallagher, Josh Sims, Charlie Austin

Ralph Hasenhüttl has gone with a back five again to deal with Liverpool’s fearsome front three. They will be looking to the pace of Shane Long and Nathan Redmond on the counter-attack against the Reds who have been conceding more goals than usual of late.

Liverpool

Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joël Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Fabinho, Naby Keïta, Georginho Wijnaldum; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mané

Substitutes: Simon Mignolet, Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Alberto Moreno, Xherdan Shaqiri, Divock Origi

Naby Keïta is back in the starting lineup but otherwise there are no real surprises named by Jürgen Klopp for the trip to St Mary’s this evening.

Mohamed Salah has gone six games without a goal whilst Sadio Mané has failed to score in four appearances against his former club but is in red hot form. Liverpool also names former-Saint Virgil van Dijk in the starting lineup, and Dejan Lovren on the bench.
