Adam Lallana On Bench - Liverpool Team vs Southampton Confirmed

Goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah gave them a comfortable win at St Mary's, but just a week after beating Manchester City in January, Liverpool were back to losing ways and Jamie Carragher thought the loss was typical with a larger problem they have.

Virgil van Dijk returns to Southampton for the first time since completing his move to Liverpool as the two sides face-off in the Premier League on Sunday. The Egyptian forward laid the ball through to Firmino and the Brazilian finished the one-on-one easily to score his first goal in seven games.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on Southampton explained: "They're a good team, to be honest I don't get why they are in the region of the table they are".

"In footballing moments we would've loved to do it [play] a bit better".

Southampton, meanwhile, headed into today's clash on an impressive 6-match unbeaten streak across all competitions, with the Saints' last outing culminating in a thrilling 3-2 victory over West Brom at the Hawthorns.

"When you score 10, 15 minutes in, it makes the game easier, (there is) less pressure", said Salah.

Van Dijk actually missed the win over City and made his league debut against Swansea, but things didn't go according to plan.

"We scored wonderful goals and we could've scored more in the second half when we had big chances, but Southampton did well to be honest, with their style of play".

Firmino slotted his ensuing finish home with aplomb, before the Reds' brilliant attacking duo combined once again to double Liverpool's lead shortly before half-time. "But I think we deserved the three points, clean sheets and no injuries, it was flawless".
