Star Liverpool Duo Set to Return to Face Southampton

Liverpool started their youngest ever side against Plymouth in the FA Cup and could only get a 0-0 draw at Anfield.

Expect more than a few first team players to return to the starting XI when the Reds face Southampton tomorrow night in the first leg of their EFL Cup semi final.

As far as the team news is concerned, Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho and James Milner are set to return for Liverpool to face Southampton (Liverpool Echo).

The retired England international suffered a calf injury in the last league game against Sunderland and did not feature in the FA Cup contest on Sunday.

The former Man City star has recovered and should make the squad against the Saints.

On the other hand, Coutinho suffered an ankle injury back in November 2016 against Sunderland and since then he has missed eight games.

As per the provided Echo link, Klopp has confirmed that the former Inter Milan attacker is fit enough to be part of the squad tomorrow night.

The 24-year-old star scored 6 goals and provided 6 assists in 14 games before getting injured and his return will be a major boost for the Anfield club.
