Southampton v Liverpool: Confirmed Starting Line-ups – Emre Can starts

Liverpool take on Southampton at St Mary’s in high spirits having become the first English side to knock Manchester United out of European competition mid-week in the Europa League.

The Reds will overtake the Saints and move into 7th place with a victory today.
