Southampton predicted lineup vs Liverpool - Premier League

Southampton travel north to Liverpool this week as they look to try and put last weekend's defeat to Norwich behind them and frustrate the title-chasing Merseysiders.

Ralph Hasenhuttl masterminded a victory over Liverpool at St Mary's last season and, prior to facing Norwich, had seen a talented Saints side pick up 10 points from a possible 12.

Here's a look at the starting XI the boss could pick...

Alex McCarthy (GK) - Has impressively kept five Premier League clean sheets this season, although will have his work cut out for a sixth here.

Tino Livramento (RB) - Leaving Chelsea was the best decision he could have made because it has meant regular Premier League football.

Jan Bednarek (CB) - Has been an automatic starter in Jack Stephens' absence but his place could come under threat in the coming weeks.

Mohammed Salisu (CB) - The 22-year-old has completed 90 minutes in all but one Premier League game this season and is much improved.

Kyle Walker-Peters (LB) - Holding off competition from summer signing Romain Perraud as he tries to make the left-back berth his own.

2. Midfielders

Mohamed Elyounousi (RM) - Has started all but one Premier League game since breaking into the team at the end of August.

Oriol Romeu (CM) - His role in breaking up play and protecting the back four will be so crucial to prevent Liverpool getting into their rhythm.

James Ward-Prowse (CM) - Captains the side and set to start his 200th Premier League game.

Nathan Redmond (LM) - Could be back in the starting lineup after missing the last two games because of a positive COVID-19 test.

3. Forwards

Che Adams (ST) - Scored the consolation against Norwich last time out and has two goals in his last three club appearances.

Adam Armstrong (ST) - A goal and two assists across his last three games will have boosted confidence but chances here will be hard to come by.
