It’s game day as Liverpool look to go back to the top with victory at Southampton. And given the Saints are fifth from bottom and still in danger of being relegated, you would not back against the relentless Reds from doing just that. But the Saints have been transformed under their new manager – and Jurgen Klopp’s big friend – Ralph Hasenhuttl and they will go into tonight’s game as one of the top-five performing Premier League teams in the calendar year. And, if that wasn’t warning enough, the special guest of this podcast explains why Southampton will be particularly fired up this evening. Adam Leitch is the chief sports writer for the Southern Daily Echo and he speaks to Paul Wheelock about the Hasenhuttl revolution, the Austrian’s similarities with Klopp, the fitness and form of Danny Ings, the return of Sadio Mane and Virgil van Dijk to St Mary's, and where the game could be won and lost. Enjoy – and fingers crossed.
