Yes, I'll Speak To Virgil van Dijk Ahead of Southampton Return

Yes, I'll Speak To Virgil van Dijk Ahead of Southampton Return

The Brazilian is in red-hot form at the moment as part of a Liverpool that promises much going forward - he is one of the feted "fab three" - scoring 19 goals in all competitions this season so far.

Nathaniel Clyne is still out, although he is closing in on a return to first-team training, per David Lynch for the official Liverpool website.

A 1-0 win for Spurs saw them leapfrog both Chelsea and the Reds into third, however.

However, hopes he would provide an instant fix to the holes in Jurgen Klopp's defence were shattered in back-to-back shock defeats to Swansea and West Brom. However, Liverpool have won only two of their last eight encounters with the Saints and have recently lost to two other relegation candidates. They tend to shot themselves in the foot against the most unlikely opponents. However, it is a bad habit and it has cost the Reds dearly in recent seasons. Too many poor signings, too many players allowed to leave.

"They have good centre halves: [Jack] Stephens, [Wesley] Hoedt, all these guys".

Henderson has only recently returned from a hamstring injury sustained against Arsenal in December, and Klopp is wary of the midfielder playing back-to-back games in such quick succession while he is not yet fully fit.

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.

I can not see the Saints suffering relegation. "We have enough quality to be in front after 90 minutes". They scored just 33 away goals in total last season.

"The arrival of J├╝rgen Klopp was very important for my growth within the team".

In addition to van Dijk, Dejan Lovren, Adam Lallana and Sadio Mane are all ex-Southampton players who could face their former club on Sunday afternoon. The Dutchman is sure to get a hostile reception on his return to St Marys. However, football is a amusing old game.

"Virgil was the last one, we understand it, it's not something we think about, maybe it will be normal in the future".

"He was rejected as a kid at Celtic, went part-time at Queen's Park, got a chance at Dundee United and took it, went to Hull and took the opportunity, and now he's at one of the biggest clubs in the world". The Reds may turn up and record a comfortable victory and it could be a routine victory.

Adam Lallana is an option for the Liverpool squad but not the starting eleven, according to Klopp, who doesn't want to rush the England worldwide back from another injury.

Will Liverpool enjoy a comfortable win over Southampton?
