Southampton are in the ninth position going into the Premier League match with Liverpool. It is remarkable that the club are only a couple of points away from entering into the top four places. However, Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is limited by the availability of players coming into the match against the defending champions.
The biggest and availability for Southampton will be striker Danny Ings,who could have potentially played against his former club. In the absence of the key forward, the Saints have been quite disappointing going forward and they barely able to get a couple of shots on target against Fulham. The match against City, though, produced more threat from Saints.
The match at the St Mary’s will be a difficult encounter for Liverpool, who did not spare any visitors in the recent away game against Crystal Palace. Liverpool were able to get a remarkable 7-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Since then, the Reds have only come up with one goal in the last two games, which have been draws against West Brom and Newcastle. The disappointing results have led to Liverpool losing their inability to pull away from the pack at a crucial stage in the season. After the wins over Spurs and Crystal Palace, Klopp says that he has a fully fit squad for the trip to St Mary’s.
“The best news is that the boys are back, and as far as I know in the moment, nobody got injured (against Newcastle) which is very important.Probably, we can go with the same squad to Southampton,” said Klopp. It would be a great option to back both teams to score.
