Klopp reveals how he's prepared Van Dijk for Saints return

Liverpool bring a host of ex-Southampton players to St Mary's this weekend, and Kevin Hatchard believes they'll succeed against their old employers.

Both teams are in need of the points at different ends of the table.

At [2.52] to score in 90 minutes, he looks an attractive bet.

Manager Hein Vanhaezebrouck has suggested it will be four or five weeks before Markovic is ready to feature, having produced abysmal results in his fitness tests-which didn't take place until after he signed on loan.

The Brazilian forward spoke of the influence of Jurgen Klopp and his progress after changing position to centre-forward, as well as his hopes for the remainder of the season.

As for Southampton, Charlie Austin is a continued absence up front while Manolo Gabbiadini nurses a lingering thigh problem that kept him from play last weekend. That is the only thing we have to plan around but that is because he had an injury, like we do with Adam Lallana.

"He's on the way back again this season, we will not rush it for sure". A team capable of beating Manchester City should win this, but they've defeated the Saints just twice in their last eight meetings. Klopp could choose to play Milner in midfield as well.

The tournament now moves across to New Zealand with the Kiwis facing England in Wellington on Tuesday, February 13. But Warner's form is again in the spotlight after his relentless playing schedule.


Part of this can be placed on the lack of support that he's provided as he's often left an isolated figure at the top of the pitch.

The Holland global is expected to receive a hostile reception at St Mary's due to the events which preceded his eventual move to Anfield earlier this year. It's not only the players we have. Klopp has a full fit midfield to choose from right now but he needs Lallana back in form as he's perhaps the best in terms of providing the creativity.

"No ex-Southampton player will play on Sunday!" However, James Ward-Prowse is slowly beginning to fill that void. They have won seven of their 13 away games, and apart from the debacle at Swansea, they have performed well away to teams in the bottom half.

And Klopp insisted that rather than anger, some Southampton fans might be grateful for the hundreds of millions their club have cashed in on from Liverpool.

This is also something that's been compounded by the Reds allowing Daniel Sturridge leaving the club on loan.

Klopp, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, added: "There are a few more players [in the Premier League that played for Southampton]". However, they do not and the Reds have a tendency to slip up against so-called inferior sides.

The Reds Under-23 side went on to lose the game 1-0 and they also ended the match with nine men after Liverpool youngster George Johnston also saw red for two bookable offences.
