KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Xherdan Shaqiri will start his first game in competitive action since signing for Liverpool in the summer and given his bright and energetic cameos so far this season, the Switzerland worldwide should help his team to a seventh consecutive win.

The 26-year-old has set unbelievably high standards for himself after last season's brilliant first year at Anfield and many feel that he's nowhere near those heights at the beginning of this campaign.

Accustomed with quality, Liverpool have produced some of the great club teams in world football, but it's Klopp's 2018-19 squad that have broken the record books by winning their first seven games of a season, but with Chelsea in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night it will be a tough record to extend.

Liverpool are now second in the Premier Leauge table with 15 points from 15, and their next game Southampton on Saturday, September 22 at Anfield.

Liverpool: Alisson, Robertson, van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold, Henderson (C), Wijnaldum, Mane, Salah, Shaqiri and Firmino.

Matip has his first goal of the season in his first start. But he is still a threat, has fantastic situations in both games and he is in a good shape.

"I have no clue yet what I will say in the team meeting but I don't think that putting more pressure on, saying it will be historical or whatever would help". We want him to score as often as possible.

Southampton will be without Danny Ings as he's not allowed to play against his parent club while Manolo Gabbiadini will face a late fitness test on a hamstring injury. At the end of the season we will see how it is, not at the start'.

Dejan Lovren returned to full training earlier this week following his pelvis injury, but Saturday's game with his former side Southampton will come too soon for the centre-half.

"The result is really cool and the performance could have been better", Jurgen Klopp said. They were really good in all the moments, they had a good match plan and we struggled a bit.

"That was all good, we controlled the game in the second half".
