Liverpool can’t afford any more slip ups if they want to defend the third position which lades directly to the group stage of Champions League in the next season.

The Reds are three points off Man City in the fourth, but the Citizens have a game in hand on Liv’pool.

This means that the victory over Southampton in the 36th round of Premier League is an imperative for Jurgen Klopp’s side

Liverpool managed to bounce back after a disappointing home defeat to Crystal Palace.

It was Emre Can’s stunner who made the difference just before the break in the away fixture with Watford on Monday evening.

Sadio Mane is still sidelined as Philippe Coutinho is expected to lead the attacking lineup together with his fellow compatriot Roberto Firmino.

Luckily for Liverpool, the Saints have been miles away from their best shape in the recent period.

Claude Puel’s men hoped to bounce back after losing two on the trot last weekend when they hosted the relegation-threatened Hull City.

However, the Tigers managed to take advantage of Southampton’s poor shape to leave St. Mary’s undefeated keeping it tight and holding a goalless draw.
