Southampton face off against Liverpool during a Premier League encounter at St Mary’s on Saturday afternoon.

The Saints will face a difficult task to contain one of the world’s best sides, even though they will have home ground advantage.

Jurgen Klopp’s side will go into the contest against Southampton as the firm favourites to secure the three points.

Shocks do however happen in football and if the Saints have a good game, they could potentially frustrate the Merseyside giants.

One of the things that Southampton can exploit during the game is that Liverpool look likely to have to start with their third-choice goalkeeper.

Alisson is expected to out of action for up to six weeks due to a torn calf while Adrian is also a doubt due to an ankle injury.

This means that Klopp will have to likely utilise third choice Andy Lonergan against Southampton.

The 35-year-old has vast experience but is not exactly considered a Premier League quality keeper. This is something that the Saints attack must aim to exploit.

Southampton will have a fully fit squad for the game, according to a report published by BBC Sport.

The report added that Saints captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg will be available for the game after having returned from injury.

The south coast club’s summer recruits Kevin Danso and Moussa Djenepo will also be in contention to make their Southampton debuts during the game.

Liverpool have outplayed the Saints during recent meetings between the sides after having the last four Premier League games played between the duo.
