Southampton vs. Liverpool Team News:

Fresh off a big win against fellow relegation strugglers Brighton, Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhutll has had some good news ahead of Liverpool’s trip to the South Coast.

Both Shane Long and Jannik Vestergaard are both back and training as normal after overcoming their respective groin injuries.

However, both Mario Lemina and Michael Obafemi remain sidelined with injury, while Danny Ings - who is on loan at Southampton from Liverpool - is ineligible to play against his parent club.

In terms of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool, they have no fresh injury concerns.

Long-term absentees Joe Gomez and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are back training but won’t be match fit in time for Southampton.

Despite picking up a knock against Tottenham on Sunday, Virgil van Dijk is set to feature for Liverpool
