Southampton vs. Liverpool Team and Injury News:

After Southampton’s disappointing display against Burnley in their Premier League opener last week, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men take on European champions Liverpool.

Unlike last week, Saints have a fully-fit squad at Hasenhuttl’s disposal.

Captain Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who fell ill last week on the team bus up to Burnley, has recovered and will be available to start.

Meanwhile, summer signings Kevin Danso and Moussa Djenepo could feature as the former is now available after completing his loan deal from FC Augsburg on deadline day.

Liverpool have a number of injury worries.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will be missing key goalkeeper Alisson with a calf injury, while his backup ‘keeper Adrian is also a doubt in an ankle injury following his impressive performance against Chelsea in the Super Cup midweek.

That means backup backup goalkeeper Andy Lonergan could be set to make his Liverpool debut at the tender age of 35.
