Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl, right, says it is a pleasure to pit his wits against Jurgen Klopp (Steven Paston/PA) Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl believes Liverpool have rediscovered the “identity” which brought their first top-flight title in 30 years.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were deserved Premier League champions in the 2019-20 campaign but standards dipped significantly last term as they finished 17 points adrift of table-topping Manchester City.

Hasenhuttl was left in tears on the touchline back in January after masterminding Saints’ shock 1-0 victory over the Reds at St Mary’s.

“But it is not impossible – I’ve seen Brighton take a point after being two down (a 2-2 draw on October 30) but 99 out of 100 games, if you’re 2-0 down (away to Liverpool) you lose this game.” Hasenhuttl has received a major injury boost ahead of the trip to Merseyside, with defender Jack Stephens back in training following more than two months out with a knee issue.

“It is always a pleasure for to play against a team of Jurgen and it is always one of the biggest challenges you can imagine in football, it is always super tough,” said Hasenhuttl.

It seems to me that they are playing again like in the season when they became champions.

“When you see Liverpool in the moment, they’re coming back to their best shape, their biggest strength.
