The newly-crowned Carabao Cup champions are back in action this midweek. Fresh off their weekend celebrations, Liverpool will be involved in an interesting FA Cup fixture on Wednesday, with the Reds hosting Southampton at Anfield for the fifth round.

This will be Liverpool's first game since Sunday's memorable Carabao Cup victory. The injury-plagued Merseyside giants locked horns with fellow English powerhouses Chelsea at Wembley, spectacularly winning 1-0.

Not only was Klopp forced to name a weakened lineup due to injuries, but the German also had to substitute more academy players as the game went on and entered extra time. Neither team managed to score during regular time, though Chelsea came close, with Virgil van Dijk eventually heading the winning goal in the 118th minute.

Klopp later described this trophy as the most special achievement of his career due to the circumstances but will have to quickly regather his troops in their pursuit of the quadruple. The Reds were competing for four trophies, having already won one of the four, leaving three more up for grabs.

Salah and Co. are currently top of the Premier League and will face Sparta Praha in the UEFA Europa League round of 16. However, their priority right now is overcoming Southampton in the FA Cup 5th round to qualify for the quarterfinals.

Form is on their side, having won their last four matches in a row. In fact, Liverpool have suffered only one defeat in their last 16 games across all competitions, with that sole slip-up being the 3-1 defeat to Arsenal in the league where individual errors from Van Dijk and Alisson cost them heavily.

Klopp's men have already beaten Arsenal and Norwich City in the FA Cup so far. Will they add Southampton to their list of victims?

While the hosts enter this match on a high, the same sadly cannot be said about the visitors, with Southampton having lost for a third time over the past two weeks.

The Saints were in action over the weekend, hosting Millwall and succumbing to a 2-1 defeat. This was the second game in a row Russell Martin's side were undone by a 2-1 score line, having lost away to Hull City by an identical result.

Southampton have thus fallen off the pace in the Championship, losing ground on Ipswich Town, Leeds, and — more importantly — current leaders Leicester. Nonetheless, the Saints still sit comfortably in fourth, 11 points ahead of fifth-placed West Brom.

Adam Armstrong and Co. kicked off their FA Cup campaign in the third round proper and have performed admirably since, beating Walsall 4-0 before overcoming Watford 3-0 in a replay following a 1-1 draw with the Hornets in the following round.

Liverpool, however, will be a totally different beast irrespective of injuries. Southampton earned a point in their last encounter with the Merseyside giants but haven't beaten the Reds since January 2021. Will Martin's men end that wait? 

Team news 

Liverpool: Ryan Gravenberch was stretchered off the pitch in the Carabao Cup final while Wataru Endo left Wembley on crutches, thus adding to Klopp's injury woes. The Reds are already without Salah, Szoboszlai, Jota, Jones, Nunez, Trent, Matip, Thiago, and Bajetic, leaving Jurgen short on options. As a result, Harvey Elliott could get a start while the manager will likely field more youngsters.

Southampton: Ryan Fraser picked up an injury in the defeat to Millwall, joining Ross Stewart and Juan Larios on the sidelines. However, Samuel Edozie and Kamaldeen Sulemana should return to the lineup. 

Key stats

  • Liverpool are on a six-game winning streak at home against Southampton. 

  • The Reds are also unbeaten in their last five matches against the Saints.

  • Klopp's men have lost only one domestic game since that controversial September 30 defeat at Tottenham. 

  • Southampton have lost three of their last four matches, but their last defeat prior to that came in late September.
