The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to their side’s upcoming clash with Southampton. The Reds have looked better in recent weeks after a tough spell earlier this term, and another win could propel them even closer to where they want to be at the top of the table. A win, though, won’t come easily – with Southampton still a very threatening outfit.
Jurgen Klopp will need to pick the perfect team if he wants to beat the Saints, and fortunately for him, he could have a few options that he wasn’t expecting to be able to call upon available. Sadio Mane has reportedly returned to training this week, offering the German boss a lifeline that he could be fit to feature this weekend.
He’s obviously not yet completely match fit, and so it remains to be seen as to whether he will start the game, but the fact that he is training would suggest that he can be involved in some way – and that’s a massive boost for the Reds.
Unsurprisingly, this has produced a big reaction amongst the Reds online, with supporters taking to the Liverpool fan Reddit page to discuss the news. Some are very confident ahead of the game in light of the boost, whilst others are already celebrating a big win.
