With the two cups in the bag already, Liverpool will attempt to keep their hopes of a domestic clean sweep alive when they head to Southampton on Tuesday night.

The Reds must beat Saints and hope they win, and Manchester City do not, on the final day of the season at the weekend.

However, even as much importance as this game therefore has, Jurgen Klopp may opt to rotate his team given the demands of going to extra time and penalties at Wembley just three days prior - and with the Champions League final also on the horizon.

Southampton’s season has petered out in disappointing fashion, with one win in 11 highlighting their ‘on the beach’ status to an extent. They can now not claim a top-half finish in 2021/22.

Here’s everything you need to know before the match.
