    Default Southampton v Liverpool: Saints on Sunday by the Seaside

    Liverpool travel down to Southampton for the late Sunday game. Our old mullet-headed ponderous CB is coaching Saints in the school of Rafa solidity, so I am not expecting an exciting game. They have been OK, of late, with some good draws against good sides and a win against West Brom, so it behooves us not to be so overconfident. The local fans will have many ex-players to choose from, in case they wish to 'Boo' (they will wish to).

    Dave's Team:

    Karius

    TAA Matip VvD Robertson

    Can Henderson Milner

    Salah Firmino Mane

    This is definitely in the banana skin category for me. The VvD motivation factor alone will play some part here. Hopefully it will unsettle them, throw their concentration and work in our favor.

    Mané badly needs a goal to boost his confidence.

    Didn't see the game; followed on twitter. Good points and even better now that the Mancs dropped points and best that Moreenho lost to Rafa. Today was a great day.

    Managed to watch the game. Solid performance, if somewhat short of our ruthless best. Particularly enjoyed the managing of the game in the second half, even if it made for less interesting watching.

    Good game to go into the knockout stages with. Same again, please.

    Southampton is a great away day. Nice ground in the centre of the city with good atmosphere. They hate us BTW. And having not drank alcohol this year until Saturday, I don't feel well today.

    Great result. The Mo Salah chants are superb.

    I missed the 2nd goal getting the beers in. Now missed 2 of the last 3 goals I've actually been in the ground for.
