Liverpool v S'hampton preview
Liverpool defender Daniel Agger is expected to return to face Southampton at Anfield after missing Monday's draw at Swansea with a side strain.
Playmaker Philippe Coutinho is out for several weeks after undergoing a shoulder operation so the likes of Iago Aspas and Raheem Sterling will be pushing for a recall.
The match marks the completion of striker Luis Suarez's 10-game ban, which was carried over from last season.
Southampton left-back Luke Shaw is fit for the Premier League trip to Liverpool.
The teenager limped off in last weekend's 0-0 draw with West Ham, but Mauricio Pochettino has revealed he has overcome that knock.
Fellow left-back Danny Fox remains a doubt with an ankle complaint and Tadanari Lee may also miss out.
