Virgil van Dijk partners Joel Matip in the heart of Liverpool's defence on his return to Southampton on Sunday afternoon.

Liverpool's signing of Van Dijk was a huge high point, as the team's defence was causing Jurgen Klopp and their fans all sorts of nightmares, so when the Dutchman scored the victor in the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round he was an instant hero.

Tottenham Hotspur's win in the north London derby on Saturday means they have jumped above Liverpool and into third spot, leading the Reds by a point, and Jurgen Klopp will want his men to make no mistake against the struggling Saints.

The Merseyside club are encouraged with a triple-injury boost alongside Lallana as Alberto Moreno and Ragnar Klavan have also been deemed fit enough to feature against the Saints, while Mohamed Salah will be looking to score his 22nd Premier League goal at St Mary's stadium.

Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, who was on the bench for that game, replaces Sofiane Boufal in midfield.

Leciester boss Claude Puel will be frustrated by the result, but the two players are at least a threat to any side in the country. From there, however, City took the control to which they have become accustomed this season, especially at home.


And Liverpool showed why the sides are battling at different ends of the table with a stunning move to double their lead three minutes before half-time.

After Salah played the ball into Firmino's feet 5 yards outside Southampton's box, the South American proceeded to slide his teammate through on goal with the most sumptuous of flicked passes with his instep, with Salah going on to finish in typically-cool style.

Van Dijk had been subjected to criticism following shock defeats to Swansea and West Brom and conceding a last gasp penalty as Spurs snatched a draw at Anfield in his previous three outings.

Southampton versus Liverpool games are like a derby nowadays so the fans and players should be well up for this one.

'Our belief and confidence was very down and that was the worst part of the game, ' he said.
