Southampton vs Liverpool – League Cup – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Liverpool vs West Bromwich Albion

Southampton will take on Liverpool at St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, Hampshire in the quarter-finals of the Football League Cup on Wednesday, December 2. The kops need a fourth consecutive victory to ensure the record winners of the League Cup make it to the semi-finals, the draw of which will be held right after their quarter-final fixture.

Team News

Ronald Koeman has an almost fully fit squad at his disposal, with only long-term absentees Fraser Forster, Florin Gardos and Jay Rodriguez missing though injuries. Jose Fonte, could join them on the sidelines after he was substituted during their 3-1 loss at the Etihad last Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp is likely to start Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge, after the pair returned from injuries on the weekend. Philippe Coutinho is also expected to be in contention for the match.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“It was nice being back up front again and to give the gaffer a different option. We’ll see what happens next week. I feel good how I’m playing at the moment and hopefully I’m giving a bit of a headache to put me in the starting eleven. We’ve got a big enough squad now to deal with a good cup run and that’s what we want to do.”

– Shane Long, Southampton.

It was a big lift having the two of them back out there. We’ve got good players coming back in and also Philippe Coutinho is close to being back as well, so hopefully we will climb even higher. Anything is possible right now. We will take it game by game and try to do it again on Wednesday.

– Jordan Ibe, Liverpool.
