Predicted Liverpool XI to face Southampton in the Premier League

Liverpool managed to ride their luck in the title race as the Reds emerged 2-1 victors over Tottenham Hotspur in their previous outing in the Premier League, thanks to a late own goal from Toby Alderweireld.

However, Jurgen Klopp’s side are set for another stiff test when they make the trip to the St. Mary’s to lock horns with Southampton in the Premier League on Friday night.

Man City reclaimed their top spot in the standings with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Cardiff in the mid-week fixture and Liverpool cannot afford a slip-up at the south coast.

Meanwhile, the relegation worries have somewhat eased for Southampton following their recent resurgence in the Premier League and the Saints sit 16th, five points clear of the drop zone after a 1-0 win against Brighton in their previous fixture.

Team News

Jurgen Klopp doesn’t have too many injuries to contend with heading into Friday’s clash. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Joe Gomez are long-term absentees for the Reds while Virgil van Dijk is likely to be fit after suffering a minor foot injury against Spurs.

Predicted XI

1. Alisson (GK)

The Brazilian had a few nervy moments in the last game but has always been a reliable presence between the sticks in his debut season at Anfield.

2. Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

The youngster looked comfortable defensively against Spurs and threw caution to the winds with his wonderful crosses into the penalty area.

3. Andrew Robertson (LB)

The Scotsman set up Firmino’s opener in the previous fixture with a pinpoint cross from the left and he has been one of the standout performers of the season for the Reds.

4. Virgil van Dijk (GK)

The towering Dutchman is an indispensable component of Liverpool’s backline and definitely a sure starter on Friday.

5. Joel Matip (CB)

He looked quite solid in the last game and Klopp should hand him another start ahead of Dejan Lovren.

6. Fabinho (CDM)

The Brazilian made an immediate impact off the bench against Spurs and he should be handed a start for this one ahead of Henderson who looked quite pedestrian in the previous outing.

7. Georginio Wijnaldum (RCM)

The Dutchman has been one of Klopp’s trusted lieutenants in the midfield and has contributed a lot with his uncompromised work-rate.

8. James Milner (LCM)

The veteran put in another diligent shift in the last game and Liverpool should continue to bank on his experience and calmness in a high-pressure game.

9. Roberto Firmino (ST)

He should be high on confidence after finding the net against Spurs and Liverpool will need him to fire on all cylinders once again on Friday.

10. Mo Salah (RW)

The Egyptian wizard is capable of changing the game on any given day with his pace, power and skills, and Liverpool will be hoping that he can produce some magic to propel them to victory.
