Jurgen Klopp is expected to make one change to his side to face Southampton at Anfield on Sunday.

Adam Lallana made his return from injury during the 1-0 win at Watford last time out and he is expected to start in place of midfield anchorman Lucas, who has been in fine form in recent weeks.

Despite limping off with a dead leg at Vicarage Road, Philippe Coutinho is expected to be fit to start on the left wing, with Roberto Firmino continuing on the right.

Lallana is expected to slot into the midfield three alongside Gini Wijnaldum and Emre Can, who scored the winner against Watford.

The back five is expected to be the same as Simon Mignolet continues between the sticks, while Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are likely to play in central defence.

James Milner and Nathaniel Clyne are expected to play in the full-back roles as they have done for the majority of the season.

Divock Origi is likely to start, because although his recent performances have been poor, it is hard to see him dropped in place of Daniel Sturridge, despite the latters’ lively five minutes versus Watford.

Liverpool’s top four hopes were given a huge boost last week as they secured three points, while their rivals; Arsenal, Man City and Man United all slipped up.

A win on Sunday for Klopp’s Reds will see them further consolidate their position in third.
