Liverpool face somewhat of a bogey team in the form of Southampton on their return to Premier League action.

After scoring six against the Saints two years ago, Liverpool failed to beat the south coast club in the next five games with just two goals to their name during that run.




Southampton, though, are the definition of inconsistency this season holding a record of three wins, four draws and four defeats in their opening 11 games with just nine goals scored.

The Reds can win a third game in a row in the league for the first time in 12 months with three points on Saturday.

Start time

Liverpool host Southampton at Anfield with kick-off scheduled for 2pm on Saturday, November 18.

TV and live online coverage

Team news

Liverpool
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has virtually a fully-fit squad to select from. 

Adam Lallana is fit again after a three-month lay off with a thigh injury while fellow midfielder Jordan Henderson has recovered from a similar problem which forced him to miss their last Premier League match and England's two friendlies.

Forward Sadio Mane has trained after reporting a slight hamstring problem on his return from international duty and Klopp will make a late decision on his availability.




Southampton
Mario Lemina is set to be Southampton's only absentee at Anfield.

The former Juventus midfielder remains sidelined with an ankle injury which has kept him out of the last two matches.

Northern Ireland's Steven Davis, Republic of Ireland's Shane Long and Italy's Manolo Gabbiadini are all available despite failing to qualify for next summer's World Cup.

Predicted line-ups

Liverpool starting XI: Mignolet; Gomez, Matip, Klavan, Moreno; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Can, Mane; Firmino, Salah


Southampton starting XI: Forster, Cedric, Hoedt, Van Dijk, Bertrand, Romeu, Davis, Long, Tadic, Boufal, Gabbiadin
