Liverpool team news for Southampton clash

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will assess his squad ahead of Tuesday night's Premier League clash at Southampton. 

The Reds go into the penultimate match on the back of a stunning FA Cup win over Chelsea on Saturday. 

Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk were both withdrawn as precautions during the final, while Andy Robertson was taken off in the latter stages due to cramp.

Speaking on Monday afternoon, Klopp gave an update on the injured players and the team status in general. 

“This process has not finished yet because we only played the 120 minutes two days ago.

“So when the boys arrive today I have to make a lot of decisions. Then we will line up a team. What I can promise and definitely say is we will line up a team only for one reason: to try to win the game at Southampton. As difficult as it is. Because that obviously is the job to do.

“We have to see who is able to help. The 30 extra minutes [at Wembley] made a big difference, but we have to see.”

On Fabinho’s ongoing recovery from the muscle injury he sustained at Aston Villa last week, Klopp added: “Very well, but he will not be involved tomorrow. But very good.”

A win in Southcoast will move the Reds to within a point of Manchester City at the top of the standings.
