Welcome to Southampton vs Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp takes his Liverpool side to St Mary’s Stadium tonight in what is arguably the most important league game of the season as they take on Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton side in a game they cannot afford to lose.
After Man City managed to salvage a draw from defeat at West Ham on Sunday and then squandered victory with a missed penalty, it gave Klopp’s side renewed hope that they could do the unthinkable and catch up to their rivals, 14 points adrift them on a level.
A defeat for Liverpool tonight would confirm Man City as Premier League champions.
Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk are ruled out of today’s crucial league game in Southampton as they try to get fit for the Champions League final.
Both players were eliminated in Saturday’s FA Cup final win against Chelsea, Salah with a groin problem, van Dijk with a knee injury, Jurgen Klopp is confident both will return for Sunday’s season finale against Wolves at Anfield.
Fabinho is out tonight with a muscle injury while Andy Robertson, who suffered from a cramp on Saturday, is also a question.
Southampton pair Fraser Forster and Stuart Armstrong could be available to either visit Liverpool this week or Leicester on Sunday.
