Southampton v Liverpool
- Danny Ings returned from injury for Southampton’s 0-0 draw with West Ham and will be keen to start against old club Liverpool on Monday.
- Ralph Hasenhuttl suggested in midweek Che Adams needs a break but Southampton have a decent break between games here and he may be fine to lead the line once again.
- Nathan Redmond and Jannik Vestergaard, who Liverpool may have an eye on in the January window, are both expected to miss out in Southampton’s first game of 2021.
- Look for Stuart Armstrong to come into the side after dropping to the bench last time out.
- Alex McCarthy has tested positive for COVID-19, which should pave the way for Fraser Forster to start.
- Thiago made his long awaited return from injury in Wednesday’s 0-0 draw with Newcastle and could start here in a massive boost for Liverpool. Diogo Jota is not too far away either.
- Joel Matip is out for three weeks. Rhys Williams should start here after Nat Phillips got a run out against Newcastle before New Year.
- Georginio Wijnaldum should return to the starting XI after being given a rest against old club Newcastle last time out.
Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy will miss Monday’s Premier League home game against Liverpool after testing positive for coronavirus.
McCarthy, 31, who has kept seven clean sheets in 16 league games, is now self-isolating at home.
Ralph Hasenhuttl says McCarthy may also miss Saturday’s FA Cup third round tie against League One Shrewsbury Town.
The Saints manager will himself be back in the dugout on Monday after a recent period of self-isolation.
“After the last round of tests, we have one positive case now with McCarthy, so he’s out for the game on Monday and maybe also the Shrewsbury game, as he has to self-isolate for a period,” said Hasenhuttl.
Meanwhile, Jannik Vestergaard and Nathan Redmond remain absent due to injury.
Liverpool defender Joel Matip is out for around three weeks with the groin injury sustained against West Brom on 27 December.
Thiago Alcantara could feature from the start, having impressed as a substitute on his return from injury against Newcastle on Wednesday.
