RALPH Hasenhuttl admits Saints need to prepare right for their next game at Anfield but insists Liverpool could have a “disadvantage” due to a midweek Champions League contest.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are in action at Anfield on Wednesday night, an 8pm kick-off, when they welcome Portuguese side Porto.

However, Liverpool have won all four of their opening four matches in this year’s competition, and already cannot be caught at the top of Group B.

Porto are second in their group and know that they will need results in at least one of their remaining two to secure passage into the round of 16.

It could mean Klopp is able to rest a few key players ahead of Saints’ visit on Saturday, but Hasenhuttl has said that his side can make the most of a “normal week” of preparation.

Speaking after the defeat at Norwich, he said: “We have a normal week now (after the international break’s disruption).

“This is a possible disadvantage for Liverpool who in the week plays a top team.

“We will prepare good and have to find the right team for competing against them, and this is what we need to do.”
