The line-ups are in ahead of the Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Southampton at Anfield…

Jürgen Klopp makes just the one change to the team selected for the midweek Europa League draw with Rubin Kazan.

The alteration – Lucas Leiva for Joe Allen – sees the German revert to the team selected against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Daniel Sturridge remains out.

The visitors, who were two places above Liverpool in the standings heading into the weekend, have goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg (back) and full-back Cédric Soares (cut) back.

At the time of writing, 75% of Vital Liverpool users who voted in our online poll think Klopp’s first home league match will end in a win. 20% predict a defeat and the remaining 5% a draw.

The game is scheduled for a 4.15pm GMT kick-off and will be broadcast live in the UK on Sky Sports 1.
