Liverpool will host Southampton following a penalty shootout win over Derby County in the Carabao Cup.

The Merseysiders will be attempting four wins in a row against Ralph Hasenhuttl’s former team at Anfield.

We will support Jurgen Klopp to restore Alisson Becker to the No. 1 spot behind a back line of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson.

Harvey Elliott and Thiago Alcantara should complete the midfield trio as we stick to 4-3-3.

Up front, Mo Salah, Darwin Nunez and Bobby Firmino should form a three-man front line.
