Southampton would have been disappointed with their 3-1 loss to West Ham last weekend, and now they entertain a very in-form Liverpool at St.Mary’s. Coach Mauricio Pochettino should name an unchanged lineup for the clash, with Lambert leading the line supported by Steven Davis in attacking midfield. Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez are the Saint’s creative outlets on the flanks.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, Flanagan, Coutinho, Gerrard, Henderson, Sterling, Sturridge, Suárez
Glen Johnson and Daniel Agger returned to action in their 4-3 win over Swansea at Anfield and are pushing the top three as outsiders for the Premier League title. The Merseysiders have the most goals in the league, with the attacking trident of Luis Suárez, Daniel Sturridge, and Raheem Sterling too hot for many defenses to handle. They also have the most away goals (28) in the league and will be expected to attack Southampton.

For Southampton match its look like Agger and Toure will fight for who’s going to be with Skrtel in Liverpool’s Defense

I hope Liverpool can bag the much needed 3 against Southampton.

That’s what you call a team goal.
It’s hard to ignore Daniel Sturridge much longer. The man may be playing alongside probably the best player in the league at the moment – in Luis Suarez – but it’s the Englishman who’s been banging in the goals – nine in his last seven outings.
Southampton have dropped more points from winning positions than any other team in the Barclays Premier League (15).
Liverpool have scored 11 headed goals from just 15 headers on target this season in the Barclays Premier League.
