Predicted Liverpool line-up to play Southampton

Southampton Football Club

Here is how we predict Southampton and Liverpool will line up for this weekend’s match:

To be played on Sunday 20th March 2016 at 13:30. Venue: St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton

Odds: Southampton 13/8, Draw 23/10, Liverpool 17/10

Liverpool travel to St Mary’s this weekend to take on Southampton in their latest Premier League fixture.

The Reds are currently eighth in the table with 44 points from 28 matches and while they are five points outside the European places as things stand, Jurgen Klopp’s side will not have given up hope of a late surge into the top five.

That said Southampton are one place above Liverpool, although Ronald Koeman’s men have played two games more, so this will be a tough game that could go either way.

In early team news, Southampton are without Charlie Austin while Jay Rodriguez and Florin Gardos are both unlikely to feature.

As for Liverpool, they must do without Joe Gomez, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Rossiter and Danny Ings due to injury and James Milner because of suspension.

Klopp also has a minor doubt regarding Alberto Moreno but the left-back should be fit to play if called upon.
