Brendan Rodgers has provided an injury update on a quartet of Liverpool players ahead of the opening match of the new Barclays Premier League season, against Southampton.

The Reds kick off their 2014-15 campaign at home to the Saints this Sunday and the manager could report no fresh injury concerns from within his squad before the encounter.

He did, however, offer the latest on the respective conditions of those already on the sidelines - namely Daniel Agger, Jon Flanagan, Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic.

"Young Jon Flanagan is still in rehab, but coming along very well," Rodgers told reporters at his pre-match press conference. "Adam Lallana is looking very well.

"Those two will probably start training with the group in the week beginning with Manchester City.

"Young Markovic is still unavailable this weekend but doing very well.

"Daniel Agger has had an ongoing injury so he is unavailable; apart from that, everyone else is fine."
