Liverpool travel to Southampton on Sunday afternoon and it will be a meeting of old friends at St Mary’s. Virgil van Dijk returns for the first time just a month after leaving in a £75million deal, while Dejan Lovren could also play a part against his former club. Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana will not be involved, but Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino is also coming up against his old side, having enjoyed a brief spell as a player and coach under Rafa Benitez on Merseyside.

But the Argentine has been under severe pressure throughout this season, with Southampton threatened by relegation for the first time since their Premier League return almost six years ago. Liverpool will want to get back to winning ways after Tottenham snatched a late draw at Anfield last week, but they will feel confident of doing so on the South Coast.


The Reds seemed to get back on track after a nightmare week or so. Following that stunning home win over Manchester City, they went to then bottom of the table Swansea and lost before West Brom knocked them out of the FA Cup. But a convincing win over Huddersfield and a good showing against Spurs has maintained their Champions League push.


For a long time, Pellegrino was the favourite to be sacked next in the Premier League, but a draw against Spurs and a dramatic win at another relegation-threatened side, West Brom, has eased the pressure a little.

Team News

As mentioned above, Lallana and Clyne will miss their return to Southampton, but Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns. Southampton, meanwhile, are still without Charlie Austin.
