KEVIN Danso could be set to make his debut against Champions League winners Liverpool.

The 20-year-old, who arrived on loan from FC Augsburg on deadline day, has been training with his new team ahead of the Reds’ visit to St Mary’s.

And after the woeful defending at Burnley last weekend, manager Ralph Hasenhuttl admitted Danso is in his thoughts when it comes to the starting XI.

When questioned whether fellow summer signing Moussa Djenepo and Danso could be handed a start, Hasenhuttl revealed: “It depends on the history they have, in what club they played, what habits they have learned.

“Some players need longer, some players it takes a short time to get adapted to our game.

“Kevin is now three times with us on the pitch and showed he has good qualities, a young player and is open-minded so let’s have a look.”

Saints will also be boosted by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s expected return.

Captain Hojbjerg had to pull out of the Burnley game on the team’s way to Turf Moor after getting sick on the bus.

But with the Danish international recovering from being sick, the Saints boss was happy to reveal that there aren’t any injury doubts ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s clash.

He added: “So far we don’t have any [fitness concerns]. We have worked very hard over the last two days, but the players had a lighter session yesterday.

“They were a little bit tired because they worked hard, but no one is injured.”

Saints’ last match with Liverpool ended in a 3-1 defeat for Hasenhuttl’s outfit, although the scores were level with 10 minutes remaining.

Jurgen Klopp’s side finished just one point behind last season’s Premier League winners Manchester City and have got started this campaign with a comfortable 4-1 victory over new boys Norwich.

However, the Champions League winners had to play against Chelsea on Wednesday in the Super Cup which had to be settled on penalties after extra time.

Despite this, Hasenhuttl doesn’t think the Anfield side will be struggling with fatigue.

“I heard the message from Jurgen that he thought we would celebrate,” continued the Saints chief.

“I was happy they were playing for longer, but mainly because I have more pictures to show my players.

“This team has so much quality and Jurgen tries to put a little bit of excuse in the fitness of his players, but he does not have to.

“It is not a problem for them playing 120 minutes on a Wednesday and coming here and playing a good game.

“I expect the best possible Liverpool team you can imagine. Jurgen has the best team in Europe if not the world.”
