Without wanting to curse anything today, Liverpool’s recent record at Anfield is incredible.
We’ve not lost at home in Europe in four years, and in the Premier League, are undefeated for 17 months.
That’s the definition of a fortress.
There was a defeat in the FA Cup to West Brom, but that was a one-off, with Liverpool conceding silly goals in a very ill-disciplined display.
At home, we either deservedly win, or get an unlucky draw having battered our opponents.
Southampton will defend deep and look to play on the break with Shane Long, but Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip have the ability to keep the Irishman quiet.
Up top, Roberto Firmino has scored three goals in his past three matches, while Sadio Mane and Mo Salah are unbelievable threats either side.
In midfield, Xherdan Shaqiri is starting alongside Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum.
