Following an International break where England channeled their inner Southampton by failing to score in back-to-back fixtures, the Saints must now prepare for their trip to Anfield, as Mauricio Pellegrino faces one of his biggest tests yet.

So if you’re already wanting to wet your appetite for the return of Premier League football this weekend, be sure to give our podcast with the guys over at Anfield Index a listen.
