Liverpool have unexpectedly named Coutinho in the starting XI, despite the Brazilian missing training sessions yesterday due to a tight hamstring.
The news is a big boost to the Reds, who know a victory against Southampton at St. Mary’s will keep us top of the Premier League table.
Elsewhere, Loris Karius keeps his spot in goal, Dejan Lovren returns at centre-back and Gini Wijnaldum replaces the injured Adam Lallana, who sadly misses the trip to his former club.
Sadio Mane and Nathaniel Clyne start down the right though and will be naturally desperate to impress at their former stomping ground.
