For a change this is a 3pm Saturday afternoon game, the last for a while, as our remaining February and March games are televised. Saints are on a good run and have won the last 4 away, so we have to take this challenge seriously. I would suggest the following team:
Trent Gomez VVD Robertson
Keita Henderson Wijnaldum
Salah Firmino Minamino
Keita would bring fresh legs while Minamino would be fresher than Origi, though Jones would be another option. Southampton have been emplying a high press with some success. Danny Ings is particularly effective at this as he proved in the reverse fixture to Adrian's discomfort. However, with Alisson, Trent and VVD all capable of launching accurate 60 yard passes from the back, we have the tools to turn this to our advantage. I can envisage a more open game than West Ham but hopefully the result will be the same.
