Paulo Gazzaniga: Offered backing by Southampton boss Nigel Adkins

Gazzaniga was at fault for Norwich's equaliser in midweek as he allowed Robert Snodgrass' free-kick to squirm under his body and into the net.

Adkins has a lot of faith in his summer signing from Gillingham and is set to stand by Gazzaniga for the game at Anfield.

"Paulo is only 20 years old and is improving all the time - he is going to be a top goalkeeper," said Adkins.

"We have changed the goalkeeper a few times this season, but all our points have been picked up when Gazza has been in goal.

"I always say you have to be allowed to make mistakes, but it has not fazed him.

"He has shown great maturity by holding his hands up and saying, 'I should have saved that' and that is very pleasing."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
