Liverpool have been given a major injury boost in a game against Southampton after talisman coutinho was fit and he will be available to traveled with the rest of the liverpool squad.

Klopp is very happy to have coutinho in his squad but Adam Lallana is the main concern, he would miss the match after undergoing a scan on Thursday ruling him out of the match against Southampton.

With lallana’s absent, Gini Wijnaldum would handle the midfield, leaving Firminho, Mane and Coutinho up front.
This will be the first time Can and Wijnaldum will start together in a competition, a game Jorgen Klopp will closely study to see if they can pair up better.

Lovren will today replace Lucas Leiva who may probably come from the bench later in the game.

Sadio Mane will be available to play, this will be his first outing against the Saints since his move to Liverpool, having made a lot of assists and goals that have seen him clip a spot in the first eleven.

Liverpool: Karius; Clyne, Matip, Lovren, Milner; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Can; Mane, Coutinho, Firmino
Substitutes: Mignolet, Lucas, Klavan, Moreno, Grujic, Sturridge, Origi

Southampton: Forster; Cedric, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand; Romeu, Davis, Hojbjerg; Redmond, Boufal, Austin
