Liverpool FC team news: Predicted XI to face Southampton at Anfield – Philippe Coutinho to start despite injury scare?


Philippe Coutinho looks set to recover from a dead leg to start Liverpool’s Premier League clash with Southampton on Sunday.

The Brazilian playmaker limped off with injury just 13 minutes into their win over Watford, but manager Jurgen Klopp has given positive indications about his chances of featuring this weekend.

Coutinho was replaced by Adam Lallana, who played 74 minutes on his return from a five-week lay-off, and the England midfielder could be in line to start their penultimate game at Anfield this season.

Captain Jordan Henderson is out, while striker Daniel Sturridge’s fitness continues to be managed and he is likely to only be on the bench again. Danny Ings is not ready to return from a long-term knee injury but Klopp provided a positive update by revealing the former Burnley striker is ‘training for the first time with the ball’. 

A win would keep the Reds in third as they hope to secure a top-four finish and their place in next season’s Champions League.

Who will Klopp select for the clash on Merseyside?
