Adam Lallana fails to make the Liverpool squad for this afternoon's Premier League clash against Southampton, but Sadio Mane starts.

Adam Lallana has failed to make the Liverpool squad for this afternoon's Premier League clash against Southampton, but Sadio Mane is given the nod.

Manager Jurgen Klopp recently welcomed Lallana back into training, but the midfielder, who has not played a single minute of competitive action this season, will not face his former club today.

Mane was a doubt after tweaking a hamstring problem while on international duty, but the Senegal attacker has been passed fit to start at Anfield.

Captain Jordan Henderson has returned to the first XI after missing the Reds' 4-1 victory over West Ham United a fortnight ago, while Philippe Coutinho is also back following a spell on the sidelines.

Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino has opted to select Shane Long up front instead of Manolo Gabbiadini, who has been dropped to the bench as a result.

Virgil van Dijk, who was heavily linked with a move to Anfield in the summer, starts at the back for the Saints.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Klavan, Moreno; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho; Mane, Salah, Firmino
Subs: Karius, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gomez, Sturridge, Solanke, Can

Southampton: Forster; Cedric, Van Dijk, Hoedt, Bertrand; Romeu, Davis; Tadic, Boufal, Redmond; Long
Subs: McCarthy, Yoshida, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Targett, Gabbiadini, Austin
