Key Liverpool Defender Set to Miss Southampton Clash After Sustaining Thigh Injury

Key Liverpool Defender Set to Miss Southampton Clash After Sustaining Thigh Injury

Sadio Mane and Adam Lallana were fitness doubts for the Premier League clash, with Dejan Lovren's in contention following an injury to Joel Matip.

Mane was a doubt for the Anfield encounter after he was sent home from worldwide duty early when he "slightly felt his old [hamstring] injury", according to the Senegalese Football Federation.

Klopp, who missed training on Wednesday to go to hospital after feeling unwell, first gave an update on his own well-being.

"I know that it will be really hard because at Anfield the people are pushing all the time and they will be trying to press high up". It was a really long [time], it is fantastic that he is back.

"It will be an opportunity for us to show how we can play this game and maybe with more space maybe it will be easier for us".

He continued: "With Sadio we have to wait, we have to see today [Friday]". We will use him for sure but bringing him in for 90 minutes?

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.

Klopp was unsuccessful in his efforts to sign Virgil van Dijk last summer, leaving the Dutchman to line up against his suitors on Saturday.

"What can I say?"

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