Bogdan has been preferred to regular number one Simon Mignolet throughout this competition and Coutinho (hamstring) was due to be assessed after training on Tuesday having missed the previous two contests.

Mignolet's future at Anfield has been source of much speculation, following rumours linking the Reds with Barcelona stopper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen and Stoke's  England international Jack Butland , however manager Jurgen Klopp hasgiven the Belgium international his full backing.

Lucas Leiva is back from suspension for the clash with Saints, while Daniel Sturridge and Jordan Henderson (both foot) should be in the squad again after making their returns from long-term lay-offs as substitutes in the win over Swansea.

Provisional squad: Mignolet, Clyne, Skrtel, Lovren, Moreno, Can, Allen, Milner, Lucas, Firmino, Benteke, Lallana, Bogdan, Toure, Randall, Brannagan, Rossiter, Ibe, Origi, Teixeira, Coutinho.
