Read Southampton’s verdict
It’s great to see Hojbjerg back in the team, and he should be a key factor in whether or not Saints get anything out of this game.
Liverpool will have Adrian in goal, which is a massive blow to Southampton’s chances.
However, why is Vestergaard in the side? He was shambolic against Burnley, and somehow keeps his spot in the side, with Jack Stephens being dropped instead.
