Saints to assess Fraser Forster and Stuart Armstrong ahead of Liverpool clash

Southampton will assess Fraser Forster and Stuart Armstrong ahead of Tuesday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool.

Goalkeeper Forster and midfielder Armstrong have each missed training due to a series of complaints but could be fit to feature against the title-chasing Reds.

Saints keeper Alex McCarthy, who is still awaiting his first appearance since suffering injury in December, could come in to replace Forster. Defender Tino Livramento (knee) remains out.

Liverpool have doubts over key pair Mohamed Salah (groin) and Virgil Van Dijk (knee) for the trip to St Mary’s after both were forced off injured during the FA Cup final on Saturday.

Midfielder Fabinho is definitely ruled out with the thigh injured sustained in last week’s clash with Aston Villa.

Left-back Andy Robertson could make the squad with the reason for his withdrawal at Wembley cited as cramp.

Southampton provisional squad: Forster, Caballero, McCarthy, Walker-Peters, Lyanco, Stephens, Perraud, Salisu, Bednarek, Valery, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Redmond, S Armstrong, Djenepo, Smallbone, Tella, Elyounoussi, Diallo, Walcott, Long, A Armstrong, Adams, Broja.

Liverpool provisional squad: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Robertson, Henderson, Keita, Thiago, Mane, Diaz, Kelleher, Gomez, Matip, Tsimikas, Milner, Jones, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jota, Firmino, Minamino, Origi.
