Team news

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has said all his players are fully fit and available for selection.

Liverpool have a goalkeeping problem as Adrian is a doubt for the match away at Southampton after he picked up a weird ankle injury during the super cup victory over Chelsea.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed the former west ham goalkeeper was injured when a pitch invader fell on his ankle during the super cup win celebrations in Istanbul.

Either Andy Lonergan or Caoimhin are the options the reds have as a replacement for the injured Spaniard, with number one goalkeeper Alisson already sidelined for a few weeks due to a calf problem.

Naby Keita is also out of the visit to Southampton.

@Komptrolla's Prediction and betting tip

Southampton are home to Liverpool, it will take more than luck for them to earn a point at home to a team that means business. 

After laboring past Chelsea in the Super Cup clash on Wednesday, all signs point to the fact that it won’t be very easy for Liverpool to match their heroics of last season and they won’t be dropping points at cheeky places.

The Saints started the way they should never have, shipping three at Burnley is a recipe for some of the same that they have experienced over time… Relegation affairs!

Verdict: Sadio Mane

Player to watch: Liverpool to win
