The goalkeeper missed the 3-2 victory over Tottenham last Sunday with a calf problem but coach Mike Marsh is optimistic about his chances ahead of the game at St Mary's.

"He's coming along nicely. He's got one of those injuries where you're not sure how long it's going to take," Marsh told Liverpool's official website.

"He's still getting treatment - with a bit of luck that will improve in the next couple of days and he'll be available for Saturday."

Marsh also confirmed midfielder Joe Allen requires surgery on a shoulder problem - but was unable to confirm when that might take place.

He added: "I think he will need surgery. We'll try to get that out of the way sooner rather than later so he'll be ready for pre-season.

"We'll just see how the rest of the squad is before we commit to that."

Allen, who came on as a second-half substitute against Spurs, has been named in the Wales squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Scotland and Croatia.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
