With a round of international fixtures still to come this week Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will be anxiously awaiting news of any new injuries.
But, mercifully, the physios have little or nothing to do with only long-term absentees Danny Ings and Sheyi Ojo currently needing attention.

With any luck that will not change this week and Liverpool will surely field the side that has been quite literally destroying the opponent in a tussle with Chelsea for the title of ‘form team of the moment.’
The international break perhaps came at the wrong time but Liverpool have a more settled line up than at any time in recent memory and also have strength in depth with the likes of Emre Can and Daniel Sturrdidge chomping at the bit for minutes and providing top quality replacements if there are problems with the very strongest XI.
With Emre Can playing so well of late perhaps Klopp will soon have to find a place in his first XI for the German colt.
But, for now, we have to stick with the tried and tested formation of players who have been making the game look so easy of late and are a joy to watch.
So here is our XI to take the points in a tricky away game at an improving Southampton. Liverpool fans: can you find a place for Can or does Wijnaldum continue to get the nod?
