GETTY Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal

Tottenham 2-0 Arsenal

Despite their most recent victory, Southampton has been a tricky opponent for Liverpool.

Pellegrino continued at a press conference, as broadcast on the club's official website: "It is difficult, because there is no true [idea] about one situation - one person can be grateful with him, and one person can say 'boo'".

Despite his best mate Philippe Coutinho leaving to Barcelona last month, Firmino is intent on signing a new deal with Liverpool, with his current deal expiring in the summer of 2020.

Liverpool are approaching the most critical part of their season, with the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie against Porto on the horizon. However, the Saints maintained their nerve and created the majority of chances.

"Southampton are not in the best shape at the moment but it will be a hard and tough fight".

Originally signed as a backup option for Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, he came into a club still reeling from the effects of a near-miss Premier League campaign.

"And all this support makes me even more willing to conquer great things wearing the shirt of Liverpool".

Jürgen Klopp believes the acrimonious nature of Virgil van Dijk's departure from Southampton requires him to speak to the €85m defender before Sunday's game at St Mary's.

The Reds no. 26 attempted 161 passes at the John Smith's Stadium, more than any Liverpool player has managed in a single game since Opta began collecting such data in 2003-04.

"It shows the good work they do down there".

Should Liverpool indeed take three points against the Saints, they will have a nine-point buffer over sixth-place Arsenal.

"There is nothing good to say about the reaction but as a former footballer when I saw the other challenge then to be honest I understand a little bit".

Klopp has now won 49 of his 94 PL games, and if he wins on Sunday, he'll be the ninth-fastest Premier League manager to rack up a half-century of victories.

Here's everything you need to know about this clash. Two of them were embarrassing losses to the English Premier League's bottom two teams at the time, Swansea (1-0 away in the league) and West Bromwich Albion (3-2 at home in the FA Cup).

It was a major boost for the 24-year-old to be guaranteed an extended run in the side.

This weekend is a test of that theory, as Jurgen Klopp's side visit struggling Southampton.

The publication stated the club wanted to secure the future of their big-name players to ward off bids from rival clubs across Europe.

"He has all the football tools, he is getting better and better".

"We always try to play but we will not force it if it's not possible". He's been fantastic for us all season. "He likes to train, he likes to learn, so that is excellent, a nice package".

The 2017-18 campaign has definitely been a very difficult one for Lallana.

Van Dijk has been playing well for Liverpool since his move but has still been caught up in controversy, with the team failing to win whilst he has featured.

"We probably have the two youngest full-backs in the league pretty much and now Joe is out", Klopp added.
