Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction, Team News vs Southampton



In the words of U2: “the Saints are coming, the Saints are coming,”…to Anfield tomorrow for a match against the club that has bought so many of their players in recent years, Liverpool FC.

The Reds head into this Premier League fixture level on Chelsea with points, but behind them in goal differential. They are the only two teams with a perfect record on the young season. Southampton enter this meeting in 13th place, with just five points accumulated from the first five matches.

Let’s take a look at who Reds boss Jurgen Klopp will likely include in his first team.

Liverpool enter this one fresh off an enthralling 3-2 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League group stage.  “One, two, three years ago the people would have thought that’s a mountain we cannot climb,” Klopp said after the win.

“It’s still so unbelievably difficult, you can’t plan it. What the boys make of the match plan is extraordinary, it’s outstanding.”
