PROBABLE LIVERPOOL TEAM V SOUTHAMPTON

Friends Of Liverpool

The team I expect the ever-improving Brendan Rodgers to pick for the game at St. Mary’s includes injury-doubt Pepe Reina who is recovering from a calf strain, I hope he is fully fit for the game.

Elsewhere, it should be the same outfield players who did so well in beating Spurs last Sunday with young Coutinho to be given his chance to again showcase his clever skills and link-up play with the forwards Suarez and Sturridge.

The Saints, who disgracefully sacked old boss Nigel Adkins haven’t fared much better under Mauricio Pochettino.

They are 16th in the Premier League having lost to Newcastle Utd and QPR and drew with Norwich City in their last three games.

So, they seem to be there for the taking for a resurgent Liverpool team who are 6th in the Barclays Premier League coming into today’s matches.

Prediction: 4-1 to Liverpool.
