Liverpool vs Southampton LIVE!

Jayden Danns struck twice and fellow teenager Lewis Koumas also scored as a young Liverpool side booked an FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United with a 3-0 victory over Championship Southampton on Wednesday.

The 18-year-old son of former Premier League and Wales international Jason Koumas received a superb pass from Bobby Clark on the edge of the penalty area before shooting into the bottom corner via a deflection.

The 18-year-old Danns netted his first goal for Liverpool in the 73rd minute when he dinked the ball over goalkeeper Joe Lumley, and scored again 15 minutes later when he pounced on a loose ball after Lumley batted away Conor Bradley's shot.

The eight-times FA Cup winners, who beat Chelsea 1-0 to win the Carabao Cup final on Sunday at Wembley, will travel to arch-rivals Manchester United in the last eight over the weekend of March 16.

Liverpool vs Southampton highlights

  • GOAL! Koumas scores on first Liverpool start

  • GOAL! Danns adds second for Reds

  • GOAL! Second for Danns seals win

  • FA Cup draw: Man Utd await winners

Jurgen Klopp's kids march on in FA Cup

22:18 , Marc Mayo

After reading the names ‘Koumas’ and ‘Danns’ on the scoresheet, fans of a certain age could be forgiven for believing they had accidentally checked in on a Championship clash between Cardiff and Crystal Palace circa 2010.

However, the Liverpool of 2024 (and beyond) are anything but second-tier as, rather than Jason and Neil, this was a case of Lewis Koumas and Jayden Danns registering their first goals for the club in a memorable 3-0 FA Cup win over Southampton.

Thanks for joining us for tonight’s match blog!

Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool youngsters' goals

22:14 , Marc Mayo

“Koumas’ first goal, I said before the game he’s a fantastic finisher, and the goals are the same side at youth level.

“Danns is quite a good finisher but this goal was no different to youth level, he knows what he has to do. He’s really calm and the second shows his nose, he was in the right spot.”

Highlights: Jayden Danns grabs his second

22:10 , Marc Mayo

What a night for the 18-year-old!

Jayden Danns reacts to his goal on ITV

21:57

“It’s a dream come true, I’ve supported the club forever, in front of the Kop end... It’s unreal, it feels like a movie.

“[My dad, Neil Danns] said last time I played he was crying so I don’t know what he’ll be doing now! He’s in the stands... unbelievable.”

Highlights: Jayden Danns gets first Liverpool goal

21:55 , Marc Mayo

Big hugs for the teenager as he walks off the pitch to great applause.

A poacher’s finish on the rebound in front of the Kop!

Liverpool 2-0 Southampton | 86 mins

21:42 , Marc Mayo

Not quite been Cody Gakpo’s night in front of goal and the Dutch forward races forward into space before launching an effort from outside the box, which goes over the bar.

Liverpool 2-0 Southampton | 83 mins

21:39 , Marc Mayo

Very little sign of a Southampton fightback in this one, they look spent and Liverpool are doing a great job of suffocating any counter chances.

Liverpool 2-0 Southampton | 78 mins

21:35 , Marc Mayo

At 16 years and 212 days (although he looks about 13!), Trey Nyoni appears off the bench for his Liverpool debut.

Harvey Elliott departs and the teenager strolls on with a big smile on his face after a pat on the back from Jurgen Klopp.

Goal at the City Ground

21:34 , Marc Mayo

And it goes to...

Manchester United!

Casemiro’s header has the Red Devils on a collision course with Liverpool in the quarter-finals.

Liverpool 1-0 Southampton | 72 mins

CHANCE!

Another threatening dribble and cross from Samuel Edozie, which is cleared for a corner by Ibrahima Konate.

Around the grounds

Liverpool 1-0 Southampton | 65 mins

21:22 , Marc Mayo

Jayden Danns into the thick of it, just as he was at Wembley, and shoots wide via a deflection after a link-up with Harvey Elliott.

The corner goes short and Elliott’s cross is repelled.

Liverpool 1-0 Southampton | 62 mins

21:19 , Marc Mayo

Alexis Mac Allister is summoned from the bench to replace James McConnell, for some much-needed experience to the Liverpool midfield.

Goalscorer Lewis Koumas is also departing, for Jayden Danns. A big moment for the sons of various mid-2000s Championship midfielders.

Liverpool 1-0 Southampton | 58 mins

21:14 , Marc Mayo

Two Saints changes as Kamaldeen Sulemana and James Bree are replaced by Adam Armstrong and Kyle Walker-Peters. Two regulars of the first-team enter the fray.

Liverpool 1-0 Southampton | 57 mins

21:13 , Marc Mayo

Up the other end, Cody Gakpo is found in the box but - not for the first time tonight - he snatches at it! Wide.

Liverpool 1-0 Southampton | 50 mins

21:07 , Marc Mayo

Saints continue to push with Samuel Edozie winning a corner, which is floated deep to Shea Charles. A neat cross back into the six-yard box is poked over by Jan Bednarek.

Liverpool 1-0 Southampton | 48 mins

21:05 , Marc Mayo

CHANCE!

Southampton really should be level after a low cross from the right reaches Sekou Mara and Kamaldeen Sulemana.

Mara miss it, Sulemana’s shot is saved and it pings up off Mara - and lands the wrong side of the post for the visitors!

Kick-off!

21:02 , Marc Mayo

The second half begins at Anfield.

Virgil van Dijk off for Ibrahima Konate in what is being reported as a pre-planned swap at the back.

He will not care about the deflection!

Reds ahead at the break

20:51 , Marc Mayo

At times, this game felt a bit like a pre-season friendly.

A gifted but wayward lower-league visitor, showing flashes of class but without much end product, against a gifted but wayward home team packed with unfamiliar youngsters.

And it is the latter who earned the breakthrough late on through that deflected Lewis Koumas strike.

Plenty of reason for Southampton to believe they can get back in the tie but this is a bad place to concede the first goal.

Half time!

20:47 , Marc Mayo

Liverpool not particularly great but they lead, with the youngster Lewis Koumas scoring late in the half.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 41 mins

20:42 , Marc Mayo

A couple of Liverpool corners in quick succession... can they put a quiet half behind them with a late goal?

It’s well cleared before Harvey Elliott has a go - and forces a good save from 25 yards out!

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 39 mins

20:39 , Marc Mayo

A risky flat ball out by Joe Lumley sends Southampton into another attack but Kamaldeen Sulemana can only place a shot straight at Caoimhin Kelleher.

The away end are applauding their side’s efforts but you have to wonder if they will rue these missed chances...

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 36 mins

20:36 , Marc Mayo

Samuel Edozie nicks the ball to launch another dangerous Southampton break but Sekou Mara gets caught in two minds and allows Virgil van Dijk to mop up.

20:24 , Marc Mayo

Craig Pawson is happy to let this game flow as a few scrappy challenges land, and it’s all the better for it.

Liverpool survive a few snaps at their ankles to find Conor Bradley out wide, who slips a neat reverse pass into Harvey Elliott but his cross is blocked.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 21 mins

20:21 , Marc Mayo

CHANCE!

Cody Gakpo finds himself on the penalty spot after James McConnell wins the ball high up the pitch.

The Dutchman wants too many touches though and gets crowded out.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 20 mins

20:20 , Marc Mayo

Big appeals from the home fans for a penalty!

Lewis Koumas beats Jack Stephens to dart into the box but the defender muscles him off the ball - and he hits the deck. Not enough in it though, he was simply not stronger than his opponent there.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 19 mins

20:19 , Marc Mayo

Good flick-on from Joe Aribo at a Southampton corner before Joe Rothwell recycles the clearance, drifting in from the edge of the box and shooting wide.

Will the away team live to regret not making the most of this spell?

Around the grounds

20:17 , Marc Mayo

Still goalless at the City Ground between Nottingham Forest and Manchester United.

Wolves lead Brighton through an early Mario Lemina goal.

And Chelsea are now 2-1 up over Leeds after a strong response to conceding first.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 14 mins

20:14 , Marc Mayo

Superb passing move from the visitors to send Samuel Edozie away down the right flank... but his cross is too close to the keeper.

A bit of a roar from the Kop as Liverpool play it out quickly - they’ve been second best so far.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 12 mins

20:11 , Marc Mayo

CHANCE!

Again Southampton force an overload in attack and a deflected effort falls for Sekou Mara, who forces another Caoimhin Kelleher save. VAR may have pulled it back for offside, mind.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 10 mins

20:10 , Marc Mayo

Calm work by Joe Lumley after a bit of a weak backpass enticed Lewis Koumas to chase him down. A smooth return to his defender continues what is turning into a long spell of Saints possession.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 6 mins

20:06 , Marc Mayo

CHANCE!

Sekou Mara grabs the ball off James McConnell 20 yards out and sees a left-footed effort tipped wide! Southampton piling on some early pressure.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 5 mins

20:06 , Marc Mayo

OFF THE POST!

Kamaldeen Sulemana pops up on Southampton’s left flank, cuts inside and takes aim... and his shot clips the outside of the woodwork!

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 3 mins

20:03 , Marc Mayo

Joe Gomez is in central midfield tonight with Conor Bradley at right-back. He truly has stepped into the James Milner utility man role for Liverpool this season.

Liverpool 0-0 Southampton | 1 min

20:02 , Marc Mayo

Just 28 seconds into the game and Southampton score! The away end goes wild an- oh, wait, the flag is up.

Sekou Mara was offside as he latched onto a ball in behind. Good finish, though.

Underway in the other three FA Cup fifth-round ties.

Two goals already at Stamford Bridge as Leeds and Chelsea exchange blows. Nicolas Jackson has just levelled up for the hosts.

Jurgen Klopp, the Liverpool boss, up next to preview the tie

19:43 , Marc Mayo

On the challenge of the last few days: "Just try to recover, no big celebration, just in the stadium and dressing room. We flew home, tried to recover and find a team for tonight. A couple of problems added on. Ryan [Gravenberch] was clear, [Andrew Robertson] got ill, [Alexis Mac Allister] was only back this morning so we'll see how long he can do. That’s a challenge."

On his youthful team: "[The final] was great, absolutely, but it's different to start a game. Southampton have changed a lot as well. The boys are ready; to defend, that's the most important thing, and we'll try to get a goal. [Lewis] Koumas is a striker, technically outstanding, Bobby [Clark] and James [McConnell] have now introduced themselves. We have to be really good on the ball and [Southampton] have a really good style on the ball. We’ve had no time to prepare but the boys will be fine."

Southampton boss Russell Martin on ITV

19:41 , Marc Mayo

On chances of an upset: “I’m excited about the challenge, every game of football you want to win. You prepare to win, we understand how difficult that is whatever team [Liverpool] pick. Also it’s a really brilliant challenge for us, for me the biggest test is to show what we’ve got and be the team we want to be.”

On the Liverpool kids: “They’re the young guys that helped them win the cup, very talented players. They also have a strong back four. Whatever team they put out here is a strong team, so no different feeling to before. It’s a big challenge.”

What has to change for his side: “Courage, to play always as the team we want to be, and aggression. If you bring both, the team functions really really well. The only 45 minutes I’ve been unhappy with in a really long time was Hull, in the first half. Apart from that I’ve been so pleased with the players.”

Harvey Elliott backs Jurgen Klopp to deliver unprecedented quadruple

19:35 , Marc Mayo

Harvey Elliott insists Liverpool can win the quadruple in Jurgen Klopp's final season after beating Chelsea in the Carabao Cup Final.

"I think so [that we can win all four]," the winger said.

"It's going to be hard but we are in the best possible position to do that. Today was a massive help but it will be down to us. If we show the desire and hunger then who knows [what we can achieve] at the end of the season?"

Some recognisable names in the Liverpool XI

19:31 , Marc Mayo

Bobby Clark was noted for his family connections when appearing off the bench in the Carabao Cup final.

The 19-year-old’s dad is former Newcastle midfielder Lee Clark.

And Lewis Koumas also has a rather famous name to live up to.

The Wales youth international, 18, is the son of Jason Koumas, the ex-Tranmere and West Brom hero! And he’s a tricky winger, too...

Southampton make eight changes

19:25 , Marc Mayo

Russell Martin has lived up to his word after promising to switch things up for Saints.

Joe Lumley starts in goal as their cup goalkeeper, while James Bree and Ryan Manning drop in as the full-backs.

Shea Charles and Joe Rothwell make up the midfield alongside Joe Aribo.

All change up top as Kamaldeen Sulemana, Sekou Mara and Samuel Edozie form the front three.

Big chance for the Liverpool youngsters

19:20 , Marc Mayo

Six changes for Liverpool, who are once again without Mohamed Salah, Dominik Szoboszlai and Darwin Nunez due to injury tonight.

A total of THIRTEEN players are absent for Jurgen Klopp.

Joe Gomez, Jarell Quansah and Kostas Tsimikas drop into the defence.

Conor Bradley moves into midfield, where he played part of the Carabao Cup final, to be joined by James McConnell and Bobby Clark.

Harvey Elliott and Cody Gakpo keep their places with Luis Diaz benched for Lewis Koumas.

To Anfield!

Is Thiago Alcantara's Liverpool career over?

18:23 , Marc Mayo

Jurgen Klopp has admitted he is unsure if Thiago Alcantara will play again this season.

“I don’t know, to be honest (if he will play again this season),” Klopp said.

“It’s a couple of things but what he has to do now from a medical point of view and I don't know if it will mean again if he can play again. It's not a short-term thing and that's why I'm not 100 per cent in it. I'm not sure if it's the same but the region is the same.”

That raises the possibility that Thiago has played his final match for the club, with the 32-year-old out of contract in the summer.

Southampton team news hint

18:08 , Marc Mayo

Saints coach Russell Martin has confirmed he will make several changes to his team for tonight’s game.

After back-to-back defeats, Southampton probably don’t know their best line-up anyway at this moment in time.

"We have such a relentless schedule and such a big game on Saturday so it is inevitable there will be some changes," he told his pre-game press conference.

"But we will put out a team that we think is capable of a performance we are proud of and that can win.

"We are going there to win, we’re all winners otherwise we are not in this job. It’s a cup game so we are not going to sit back."

Liverpool vs Southampton | Countdown to kick-off

18:00

We’re expecting team news at any point of the coming hour, with lots of anticipation around the hosts’ line-up.

The draw is set for around 7pm GMT, with kick-off at Anfield coming at 8pm.

Bring your brolly!

17:52 , Marc Mayo

It’s set to be wet and wild at Anfield tonight, with little sign of the rain easing during the game.

Liverpool vs Southampton prediction

17:45

It is simply so difficult to see past a Liverpool victory tonight. Southampton could well cause problems for their creaky defence but the sheer goalscoring might possessed by the hosts makes them big favourites.

Liverpool to win, 4-1.

Our prediction for the visitors' team

17:37

Predicted Southampton XI: Bazunu; Harwood-Bellis, Bednarek, Stephens, Walker-Peters; Smallbone, Charles, S. Armstrong; A. Armstrong, Adams, Edozie

Early Southampton team news

17:30

Southampton made five changes on the weekend before a home defeat to Millwall, leaving boss Martin with a number of selection decisions.

Sam Edozie, Joe Rothwell and Adam Armstrong are among those pushing for a recall while Ross Stewart and Juan Larios are unavailable. Ryan Fraser will be out of action until after the March international break and David Brooks is cup-tied.

How the Reds could line up tonight

17:25

Predicted Liverpool XI: Kelleher; Bradley, Quansah, Van Dijk, Tsimikas; Elliott, Mac Allister, McConnell; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo

Early Liverpool team news

17:18 , Marc Mayo

Mohamed Salah should be fit for the hosts but question marks remain over Darwin Nunez and Dominik Szoboszlai, plus Wataru Endo who picked up an injury on the weekend.

Youngsters such as Jarell Quansah, Bobby Clark and Conor Bradley are set to play a role once again amid the injury absences of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Diogo Jota, Alisson Becker and more.

Ryan Gravenberch has been ruled out after a bad challenge from Moises Caicedo in the Carabao Cup final, while Thiago Alcantara may not play again this season.
