Southampton v Liverpool: match preview


Jürgen Klopp says Liverpool’s position at the top of the table means nothing at this stage but after stuttering to a point at St James’ Park on Wednesday, a trip to Southampton offers the champions a chance to instantly put the record straight. Liverpool were held to a draw against West Bromwich Albion and off-colour against Newcastle but put seven goals past Crystal Palace before Christmas. Despite failing to win any of their past four matches, Southampton should provide more stubborn opposition and Danny Ings will be desperate to strike against his former club. Ralph Hasenhüttl will return to the Saints’ dugout following a period of self-isolation. Ben Fisher
