Liverpool simply cannot lose against Southampton if they are to take the race for the Premier League title to the final day of the season.

Klopp told Liverpool’s official website about Fabinho’s recovery process: “Very well, but he will not be involved tomorrow. But very good.”

Injury problems

Liverpool have injury concerns ahead of the match against Southampton.

Forward Mohamed Salah and defender Virgil van Dijk did not finish the FA Cup final against Chelsea at Wembley Stadium in London at the weekend.

Klopp has said that he will not use Salah or Van Dijk against Southampton, but we think that Liverpool will still have more than enough to beat the Saints and take the Premier League title race to the final day of the season.
