Southampton vs Liverpool, Premier League

Virgil van Dijk starts against his old team Southampton for the first time since arriving at Liverpool in January, with fellow ex-Saints Adam Lallana, Dejan Lovren and Sadio Mane also in the squad.

Henderson had been out for a month while nursing a hamstring injury, which is the reason for Liverpool's cautious approach with their captain. "He can do it today", manager Jurgen Klopp revealed.

The race for top four remains tight and slim as a defeat today could see Liverpool fall as far as fifth, with Chelsea playing tomrrow.

With a host of familiar faces in their midst, the Reds will be hoping a hostile atmosphere won't prove too much of an issue as they bid for a return to winning ways after their 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

In midfield, Klopp has opted to rest Jordan Henderson ahead of Wednesday night's Champions League last-16 trip to Porto, with Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain starting.

Liverpool goes into Sunday's game at St Mary's Stadium in fourth place in the Premier League, with Spurs having leapfrogged them with their 1-0 win against Arsenal at Wembley.

Liverpool have not won in any of their last three trips to St Mary's, but take on a Southampton side mired in a relegation battle under Mauricio Pellegrino.
