Starting XI: How should Liverpool line up against Southampton?

Chelsea’s relentless form means it’s likely to take a perfect run from now until the end of the season to see Liverpool into the top four.

Manchester City can secure the Premier League title against Chelsea on Saturday evening, but three points for Thomas Tuchel’s side will effectively mean the end of the Reds’ Champions League hopes. Klopp’s side are currently seven points off the top four and will have two games in hand by the time we kick-off.

A positive light going into this game is that Southampton don’t have anything to play for – but that might not mean anything with Liverpool’s current Anfield form.



Here’s how we should line up:

Ozan Kabak and Fabinho didn’t work well against Newcastle which means Nat Phillips has to come back in. No changes on the flanks. The postponed game against Manchester United should hopefully have seen the squad benefit from rest.

Stick with the aggressive approach. A 4-2-3-1 shape allows Fabinho and Thiago to play as a two which should be able to control the game comfortably. Roberto Firmino remains in midfield after a solid outing last time out.                                       

Will Liverpool’s attack be wearing their shooting boots? This season has been a forgettable one in terms of finishing. Salah, Mane and Jota complete an all-out attack, but a repeat display of the Newcastle game will mean the Reds can forget about three points.

Nothing less than a win on Saturday.

Score prediction: Liverpool 2 – 0 Southampton
