Video: Watch Liverpool U21s vs. Southampton U21s live

Liverpool under-21s are in action against Southampton under-21s this evening and you can watch the match live for free here.

Note: Video is via Southampton FC, therefore more focussed on the Saints than LFC.

Michael Beale’s side are currently bottom of the Barclays Under-21 Premier League, without many of their key players this season either due to loan or being used by the first-team.

Their last competitive game was the 0-0 draw with Norwich before Christmas, but they did play a friendly last week against Morecambe at the academy in Kirkby.

Jon Flanagan played 45 minutes in that match and he starts again against the Saints tonight as he continues to comeback from 19 months on the sidelines.

Pedro Chirivella, Joe Maguire, Ryan Kent and Jerome Sinclair, who featured in the FA Cup third round tie on Friday night at Exeter are all in the starting XI for the young Reds.

Liverpool: Fulton, Flanagan, Hart, Polgar, Maguire, Virtue-Thick, Wilson, Chirivella, Sinclair, O’Hanlon, Kent.

Subs: Whelan, Firth, Lennon, Trickett Smith, Dhandha.
