  • Liverpool Virgil van Dijk Southampton

Virgil van Dijk partners Joel Matip in the heart of Liverpool's defence on his return to Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

Klopp will be facing a Southampton side for the ninth time since becoming Liverpool's manager in October 2015 and has only recorded two wins against them.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on Southampton explained: "They're a good team, to be honest I don't get why they are in the region of the table they are".

Gary Lineker questioned Southampton's defending for Mohamed Salah's 22nd league goal after the Liverpool FC summer signing helped the Reds to secure a comfortable 2-0 win at St Mary's.

Stephens has even chipped in with three vital goals on his last three appearances and Pellegrino said: "I think we have got enough players to replace Van Dijk".

However, it was his assist for Liverpool's second goal that was the highlight of the first half.




"We will try to win the next game and until the end we will be there". The anxiety in my players was really high.

Southampton were the better side for the remainder of the first half, but visiting goalkeeper Loris Karius ensured they failed to make the most of their superiority and a glorious exchange in which Firmino repaid the favour to Salah in the 42nd minute saw Liverpool double the lead against the run of play.

The centre-back turned out 80 times for the St Mary's side before his £75 million transfer to the Reds last month.

The African forward started the weekend one goal adrift of the Premier League's leading goal-scorer Harry Kane before the England global netted the victor in the north London derby.

"If we were playing against towering defenders like Tony Adams and Jaap Stam and you were taking a set piece, you'd say "keep it away from him" or take the man away".
