Liverpool will be looking to continue their push for the top four with a win when they take on Southampton at Anfield this afternoon.

Jurgen Klopp has been boosted by the return to fitness of Philippe Coutinho as the playmaker starts after recovering from an adductor injury while Jordan Henderson is also fit having overcome a thigh issue.

Sadio Mane is back after making a swift recovery from a hamstring scare that he picked up while on international duty but Joel Matip isn’t risked due to a thigh problem.

Dejan Lovren therefore gets a recall at the back alongside Ragnar Klavan. Joe Gomez is named among the substitutes with Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Liverpool

Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Mane, Salah; Firmino.

Subs: Karius, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gomez, Sturridge, Solanke; Can.

Southampton

Forster, Cedric, Van Dijk, Hoedt, Bertrand, Romeu, Davis, Boufal, Tadic, Redmond; Long.

Subs: McCarthy, Yoshida, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Targett, Gabbiadini; Austin.
