Liverpool return to Premier League action on Monday night when they travel to St Mary’s to face Southampton.
Neither team enters the game in the best shape of their form, with Liverpool falling to disappointing draws against Newcastle and West Brom recently, while the Saints have failed to find the net in any of their last three games.
However, Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team is still off to an impressive start to the Premier League season and it will not be an easy game for the Reds, so we expect Jurgen Klopp to make some changes to the starting team that struggled to knock down. to Newcastle. last time.
Here’s how Football FanCast expects Klopp to line up with him on Monday night, with three changes since his last game …
There is a change in Liverpool’s defense when Rhys Williams replaces Nathaniel Phillips. While the former Bolton Wanderers player helped the Reds score a clean sheet against the Toons, he is not the most mobile and could fight the pace of Southampton attackers Danny Ings and Che Adams.

Meanwhile, Klopp makes two changes in midfield, while Thiago makes only his second start in a Liverpool jersey after his impressive cameo at St James’ Park, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain replaces Curtis Jones in midfield to make his first start of the season against his old team, with James Milner also falling to the bench.
The “exceptionalJones has struggled in the Reds’ last two games, so maybe he should rest, while Oxlade-Chamberlain could provide some much-needed creativity against the Saints.
Unsurprisingly, Klopp will go with his strongest attack with Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah as starters, and they will have to be much more clinical than they were against Newcastle if the Reds are to leave Southampton with all three points on Monday.
And, in other news… Forget Ings: Klopp should be scared of £ 45k-p / w. The danger of the Saints is the man loved by Guardiola
