Southampton host Liverpool in matchday 37 of Premier League 2021-22 at the St Mary’s Stadium on Wednesday, May 18. The match will kick off at 12:15 AM IST (Indian Standard Time).
Liverpool will assess Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk for the trip to Southampton, given the line-up of fixtures in the pipeline. The pair limped off with minor injuries during the FA Cup final against Chelsea but as things stand, their injuries are not considered serious.
The Reds are already without Fabinho and might also rest right Andy Robertson who suffered a cramp in the Cup final win.
Southampton, on the other hand, have no fresh additions to the treatment table besides Valentino Livramento.
