Liverpool XI vs Southampton: Starting lineup, confirmed team news and injury latest for Premier League today

Liverpool look to carry their strong post-international break form into a clash with Southampton at Anfield on Saturday.

Where their defence had looked somewhat shaky prior to the resumption of Premier League football last week, Jurgen Klopp’s side have scored six goals without response in their last two games against Arsenal and Porto respectively.

Given both Manchester City and Chelsea face daunting tasks on Sunday, this should provide a real opportunity for Klopp’s side to put some pressure on in the Premier League title race. Claim a victory and Chelsea would be just a point clear before their huge game with Manchester United.

Afforded the luxury of being able to rest players on Tuesday evening, Liverpool largely have a clean bill of health heading into Saturday’s 3pm GMT kick-off.

While Roberto Firmino and Harvey Elliott remain long-term absences, Naby Keita could return and follow James Milner back into first-team contention.

Liverpool predicted XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Jota, Mane

Date: Saturday November 27 2021 at 15.00pm GMT

Venue: Anfield

Referee: Andre Marriner
