Southampton vs Liverpool team news

Tino Livramento is the chief absentee for Southampton as he continues to recover from a long-term knee injury.

Liverpool are sweating over Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk, who were both forced off during the FA Cup final.

“I spoke to both after the game and both are really okay,” said Klopp. “All that we know is that it’s not a big thing we really came through.

“But the next game is on Tuesday and that’s obviously pretty quick. I think they both will be fine. We have training on Sunday morning, and I’d be surprised [if they were fine then] but I’d take it. We will see.”

There have been so many twists and turns in this title race, and Southampton were able to take points off City earlier in the season, but Liverpool’s tails will be up and they will surely have the motivation to seal a victory on the south coast.
