Sadio Mane starts for Liverpool in this afternoon’s Premier League clash with Southampton at Anfield.

The forward has recovered from a slight reoccurrence of a recent hamstring injury to take his place in the Reds’ XI against his former club.

Jordan Henderson returns to the line-up following a thigh issue and Philippe Coutinho is back, while Trent Alexander-Arnold and Dejan Lovren also begin the contest.

Joel Matip is ruled out due to a knock sustained this week.

Liverpool: Mignolet, Alexander-Arnold, Klavan, Lovren, Moreno, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Subs: Karius, Milner, Gomez, Sturridge, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Can, Solanke.
