Liverpool will have to attack Southampton from the first second of this game to the last. They will hope to score an early goal to get the visitors on the back foot while not giving anything away themselves as they press for a win.
Joel Matip, 25, is set to make his first start in more than a month. The defender has not been named in the starting line-up since December 11 due to injury and then there has been uncertainty over his eligibility due to the Africa Cup of Nations.
Captain Jordan Henderson, 26, is expected to overcome a heel injury and take his place in the midfield as Liverpool look to try and win the battle in the middle of the park. The home fans will be hoping that their heroes can bounce back from their shock 3-2 defeat by Swansea in the EPL.
Southampton will await results of a scan on Virgil van Dijk, 25, to assess whether he will be fit. The Saints captain hobbled off in the 55th minute during their win over Leicester and remains a doubt. Virgil is a very important player for them and their fans will be praying that he makes it.
Ryan Bertrand, 27, and Dusan Tadic, 28, should keep their places in the starting XI as Southampton will play his strongest side at Anfield, while Steven Davis, 31, could recover from a knock which has caused him to miss their last few games.
