Liverpool vs Southampton
Saturday’s Premier League action will draw to a close at Anfield, when Liverpool play host to Southampton.
The latter, despite having endured a fairly disappointing campaign as a whole, are now all but safe from relegation.
The Saints will head into the weekend’s action sitting 15th in the table, 10 points clear of the bottom three with five games left to play.
Liverpool, though, still have it all to play for. If Jurgen Klopp’s side win their game in hand, they will move to within four points of 4th-placed Chelsea.
And though it is hard to envision them securing Champions League football for next season, the Reds will no doubt be keen to ensure that they finish in the top-six.
Jurgen Klopp provides update on Jordan Henderson
Ahead of Saturday evening’s game, Jurgen Klopp spoke to the media on Friday.
When doing so, the Liverpool boss provided a fairly positive update on Jordan Henderson.
The Reds captain has not featured in the Premier League since the 20th of February.
However, when speaking about Henderson on Friday, Klopp confirmed that he is now back running outside.
The German also added that his squad are dealing with ‘a few bumps and bruises’:
“We have a few bumps and bruises so we have to wait. Hendo is running outside.”
