Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will once again be looking to close the gap on league leaders Chelsea by picking up three points against mid-table Southampton at Anfield on Saturday
Southampton had begun to pick up some form as of late and despite only winning three of their first 12 league games, they sit in 13th place heading into this game.
Ralph Hassenhutl’s side lost to bottom-side Norwich City at the weekend and that 2-1 defeat denied them a move into the top half of the table.

Jurgen Klopp was without nine of his first team stars for Saturday’s 4-0 victory over Arsenal, and could be set to be without a number of players once again for the visit of Southampton.
However, James Milner, Andrew Robertson and Divock Origi all returned from injury to feature against Porto in midweek, while Diogo Jota was also named on the bench.
