Liverpool take on Southampton at St Mary’s hoping to overtake the Saints and move into 7th place.

The Reds are bound to be in high spirits after knocking Manchester United out of the Europa League Last 16 mid-week and have won their last three away games against Southampton in all competitions.

Liverpool have also won their last three Premier League games and are unbeaten in their last 11 matches.

The Saints are not in the best of form having one just one out of their last four league games.

Liverpool could be without Henderson due to illness and Moreno who has a hamstring problem. Lucas, Rossiter, Stewart and Gomez have all been ruled out with injury.

Emre Can is likely to start in midfield after an impressive couple of performances and may even get the captain armband if Henderson misses out.
