Liverpool defender Joel Matip: What I really think of Virgil van Dijk

More Jurgen Klopp's side head to St. Mary's Stadium in the late Sunday kick-off to face a struggling Southampton side who sit just two points above the relegation zone.?

Lallana stepped up his comeback by playing in the Premier League 2 match against Tottenham, but was dismissed on the hour after reacting angrily to a challenge from Spurs' U-23 captain George Marsh. It will not be a normal game for him. But we are all human beings, we are influenced by circumstances.

Attack: Adam Lallana stepped up his recovery from a thigh injury with a run out for the U23's earlier this week but it didn't go according to plan after he saw red following an unsavory incident.

Klopp's side are no doubt fantastic to watch, they score buckets loads of goals, with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane unstoppable at times. It is nice you think he can handle it.

"It's obviously quite special, but it was not in goal", said Klopp of his five former Southampton players, and joked that his side would not be able to field a team if they left their former-Saints contingent out of the side.

'We have to accept it how it is: loud, not nice maybe, but still we have to play football'.

"I think our fans are really respectful with ex-players and I prefer that our fans are focused on supporting our players and get behind us".

Adam Lallana is available for the Reds despite being sent off for the Liverpool Under-23s against Tottenham for grabbing George Marsh by the neck, per Jack de Menezes at The Independent. Since I worked for a long time in Germany, I communicate with him in German and it works very well between us.

The 23-player team roster was named on January 1 and includes 10 players who have previously participated in the olympic games. That is the last time Canada has lost a women's ice hockey final, having won the last four gold-medal matches.

San Diego Union-Tribune may be sold to health-care billionaire
Kahn said. "But I don't know what (Soon-Shiong's) motivations are and what those are when he owns those assets". After The Washington Post first reported a potential sale Tuesday , cheers spread through the Times newsroom.

The 26-year-old has also credited Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp for helping him become one of the most effective forward players in the Premier League. I rate him as an extremely professional coach, a perfectionist, with a winning mentality.

"Adam was not happy about the reaction as I wasn't, but it doesn't change my mind about Adam of course".

Gini Wijnaldum is pushing for a recall but I think Klopp may go with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain with the England global coming in alongside Jordan Henderson and Emre Can. They will ask a few questions to a vulnerable Liverpool back-line.

'He is for an option for the squad, if he is an option for first 11?

"But this team is better than the Liverpool team I played in that won the Champions League in 2005".

Just as importantly, the No. 9 reaffirmed his commitment to the club and spoke about his hopes of signing a contract to extend his Anfield stay.

"Maybe we should have a scouting department directly in Southampton", he said jokingly.
