Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool travel to St. Mary’s Stadium to take on Southampton Live in the second week of the Premier League today.
Having just won the UEFA Super Cup in an enthralling game against Chelsea at Besiktas, the Reds are supreme on confidence, and, even though we are still a bit far off from our best, Klopp’s men should have enough to go past Southampton today.
While Alisson is still unavailable, it would be interesting to see whether the Gaffer will start Sadio Mane alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, after the winger was heavily involved against Chelsea, despite not being 100% match fit.
With rivals, Manchester City, set to take on Tottenham in London, Liverpool have a great chance to take an early lead against the Pep Guardiola’s men, if City fails to win points against Spurs.
Meanwhile, here’s the official starting lineup for Southampton vs Liverpool to be played live at the St. Mary’s Stadium:

Liverpool: Adrian, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Firmino, Mane.
