Liverpool vs Southampton FA Cup team news, line-ups: fifth round updates tonight

Liverpool aim to keep quadruple hopes alive in FA Cup fifth round against Southampton after Carabao Cup win. Klopp's injury-hit squad vulnerable.

Liverpool is set to return to the field tonight as they take on Southampton in the FA Cup fifth round, aiming to keep their hopes of a quadruple alive. The Reds secured a thrilling 1-0 victory against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday, with Jurgen Klopp relying on a bench of teenagers and Virgil van Dijk to secure the win. Despite injuries plaguing the squad and a quick turnaround between matches, Liverpool may face vulnerability against Championship side Southampton.

Southampton, currently eyeing a return to the Premier League, are in a strong position to push for a spot in the Championship playoffs after a strong start to the season. Sitting fourth in the second tier, just five points off automatic promotion spots, the Saints have the potential to cause an upset against Liverpool and turn their recent form around.

Although Russell Martin's side has suffered three losses in their last four league games, including a disappointing defeat against Millwall, a headline victory against Liverpool could provide the momentum needed to get their season back on track.

Jurgen Klopp, despite his age of 56, still exudes energy and passion on the touchline, leading Liverpool to success in various competitions. Following their EFL Cup triumph against Chelsea, Liverpool now turn their attention to the FA Cup clash against Southampton, with hopes of advancing to the next stage of the competition.

With Liverpool as second favorites in the FA Cup odds and their recent strong performances, they will be looking to secure a spot in the last eight. The last time Liverpool lifted the FA Cup was in 2022, defeating Chelsea in a penalty shootout in the final.

As Liverpool prepares to face Southampton in the FA Cup, fans can expect an exciting and competitive match between two strong teams. Stay tuned for all the action from Anfield and the latest FA Cup odds and tips to make the most of this thrilling encounter.
