PHOTO: Southampton manager spotted at Anfield for Liverpool game

Giant Anfield Flag

Ronald Koeman was spotted scouting Liverpool at Anfield.

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman was at Anfield on Sunday, and saw former player Dejan Lovren get off the mark on his debut.

Lovren is one of three Saints stars to make the switch to Liverpool this summer, following Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana.

But fans of the south coast club do not have to worry that Liverpool are trying to lure their manager away, for Koeman was simply undertaking a scouting mission ahead of Southampton's Premier League visit to Anfield next weekend.

It's doubtful the former Dutch international will have liked what he saw, for Liverpool were utterly dominant in putting Borussia Dortmund to the sword, winning 4-0 with Lovren netting the second.

Liverpool's match with Southampton promises to be a fascinating encounter this summer due to the one-way business undertaken between the two clubs.

Southampton would love nothing more than to upset the team who have bought three key players from their side this summer, and while the scoreline may not suggest Koeman came away feeling positive, he may just have come away with a trick or two up his sleeve.

Can Southampton upset Liverpool next weekend?
