Jurgen Klopp Sweats Over Injury Worries Ahead of Southampton Game

Antonio Conte

The 25-year-old's been one of the best arrivals to the Premier League this season and has been Liverpool's go-to man in Sadio Mane's absence.

Mane is recovering from a hamstring strain while Lallana is yet to play this season due to a thigh injury.

"Defensively I think Southampton are very good and Liverpool find it pretty hard to break down teams at home when they sit back".

They return to Champions League action next week to take on Sevilla in Spain as they bid to take a step closer to the knockout phase. "I am 50 now - maybe I need to get used to it but I've been twice already in a British hospital", said the German. It's fantastic that he's back, he's lost nothing.

"Sadio we have to wait, we will see today".

"There's no rushing it, even though everyone who knows Adam can imagine how ready he is to be part of the squad again". We will use him for sure, but to bring him in now for 90 minutes is an absolute no.

Captain Jordan Henderson has returned to the first XI after missing the Reds' 4-1 victory over West Ham United a fortnight ago, while Philippe Coutinho is also back following a spell on the sidelines.

Virgil van Dijk, who was heavily linked with a move to Anfield in the summer, starts at the back for the Saints.

Liverpool won three matches in a row before the global break, but they sit 12 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City.

"What can I say?"
