Klopp to speak to Van Dijk ahead of Southampton return

That said, there is a genuine feeling on the south coast that Saints are on an upward curve. Klopp has a full fit midfield to choose from right now but he needs Lallana back in form as he's perhaps the best in terms of providing the creativity.

However, the club's home form is still a nagging concern.

There are no fresh injuries for Pellegrino.

The German does plan on talking to Van Dijk ahead of Sunday's contest, and says the team have to accept any negative reactions from the stands. The Dutchman is sure to get a hostile reception on his return to St Marys.

Relegation-threatened Southampton will host Liverpool this Sunday in what could be a pretty feisty game in the Premier League.

Firmino was signed from Hoffenheim in 2015 for £29m under former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers, and was originally known as an adaptive attacker who mostly played in the two or three positions behind a main striker.

"I know they are struggling and we need to win".

Lallana is expected to play at some stage, despite his meltdown in an Under-23 game against Spurs.

Adam Lallana is available for the Reds despite being sent off for the Liverpool Under-23s against Tottenham for grabbing George Marsh by the neck, per Jack de Menezes at The Independent.

"Joe Gomez has the potential to be a top defender but Lovren, Joel Matip and Ragnar Klavan don't look up to it". "But with us I feel we are in a good situation to play against them".

As a product of the Saints youth academy, he has often provided reliably consist performances for the team, albeit, without the end product that has recently been added to his game. They have won at Bournemouth, Stoke, Huddersfield, Brighton and West Ham.

Jurgen Klopp has clarified exactly what Hans Leiter will do for Liverpool after being probed for answers by a reporter at Melwood on Friday.

With little to lose and a motivation to beat the side who their former captain chose over them, Southampton are likely to provide a sterner test than many expect.

Liverpool found themselves three goals behind in the first half, before Glen McAuley pulled one back before the break.

Liverpool have lost just one of their last 17 league games, a 1-0 defeat at Swansea last month. For all the talk of Liverpool's defensive weakness, they have only leaked seven goals in their last eight Premier League away matches.

"So I didn't speak to anyone to offer advice, about Firmino or anyone else".

The Dutch worldwide signed for the Merseyside club in December after two-and-a-half seasons with Southampton, in which he scored four goals in 67 Premier League appearances.

There was a midfield master-class from Mario Lemina who capped another impressive game for the Saints with a stunning strike that levelled the scores in the 40th-minute.
