Southampton vs Liverpool Premier League preview

Share

Right-back Joe Gomez is unlikely to feature because of a minor knee problem while midfielder Adam Lallana returns after a thigh problem.

Gary Lineker questioned Southampton's defending for Mohamed Salah's 22nd league goal after the Liverpool FC summer signing helped the Reds to secure a comfortable 2-0 win at St Mary's.

And Klopp was just pleased to get the game out of the way with another three points on the board.

Riyad Mahrez rejoins Leicester after self-imposed exile following failed move to City
Since transfer deadline day, which was when Manchester City's bid was rejected by the Foxes , Mahrez hadn't trained with his team. According to Sky, Mahrez has been hit with a £240,000 ($334,000) fine for failing to report to training over the past week.

"It won't be a friendly game, they fight for everything, we fight for everything".

Despite climbing the Premier League table after ending a 13-game win less streak in the league on Saturday, Southampton could still find themselves back down in the relegation zone before kick-off, highlighting the importance of trying to take points from every game we play until we're safe.

Firmino fired Liverpool ahead after seven minutes when Southampton messed up in defence and Salah picked out his fellow forward to stroke home.

Kim Jong Un invites S. Korea's Moon to Pyongyang
Pence and the North Korean delegation, who both attended the Games opening ceremony , had no contact with each other. Kim Yo Jong is in South Korea for the Winter Olympics , hosted in Pyeongchang and featuring united Korean teams.

"In footballing moments we would've loved to do it [play] a bit better".

"We scored wonderful goals and we could've scored more in the second half when we had big chances, but Southampton did well to be honest, with their style of play".

"No ex-Southampton player will play on Sunday!"

Diplomacy on show as 'Peace' Games begin
The U.S. delegation numbers 244 but not all athletes participated due to their training or competition schedules. The two Koreas technically remain at war as the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty.

The Saints haven't beaten a top-six side in the league now for over 18 months and the Reds ran ragged last time out and have a lot of quality in their ranks. I don't think nine points from Arsenal is enough to have rest but it is nine points.
