LIVE: League Cup quarterfinal – Saints host Liverpool in tasty clash

0 Comments

Liverpool head down to St Mary’s on Wednesday to take on Southampton for a spot in the final four of the Capital One Cup.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has lost just one of his opening 10 games in charge of the Anfield club — the only defeat still has him quite angry, as his potty mouth suggests — in all competitions but facing a lively Saints outfit away from home and in front of a packed house on the South Coast won’t be easy.

These two teams met in a Premier League encounter last month as Sadio Mane‘s late equalizer canceled out Chrstian Benteke’s header to snatch Southampton a late point at Anfield.

In team news Ronald Koeman‘s Saints will be without their inspirational captain Jose Fonte in the heart of their defense but Italian international striker Graziano Pelle returns after his ban to lead the line.

Liverpool start with Daniel Sturridge, while Adam Bogdan comes in for Simon Mignolet in goal and youngster Connor Randall starts.
