Liverpool could have done without meeting Southampton at what looks to be the strongest they’ve been all season. There will be plenty of Saints’ fans and staff who would want nothing more than to thwart the efforts of The Reds.
Liverpool have picked off plenty of players from Southampton over recent years, Clyne, Lallana, Lovren and most notably and controversially, Vin Dijk.
The home team can approach this with no fear and that could make for an open affair. It’s not unforseeable to imagine Klopp’s men struggling for periods tonight and we think the corner count could climb and climb.
