Liverpool v Southampton

With Liverpool’s eight match unbeaten run in the Premier League coming to an end at White Heart Lane mid-week, it is time for Brendan Rodgers to give his team a bit of a shakeup.

That’s why I have put Lucas Leiva back in the midfield following a very long injury lay-off.

The boss has declared him fit to play and I hope he does feature in the side as new father Joe Allen is in need of a rest.

Downing and Henderson will be consigned to the subs bench following their recent poor performances, I hope.

Shelvey is an up and coming all-action midfielder who can score goals. Lets hope he gets one tomorrow against Nigel Atkins Southampton side who, despite being in the relegation zone, are on a four-match unbeaten run.

Prediction: 3-1 to Liverpool
