Liverpool will travel to the West Midlands to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineaux Stadium tonight after comfortably beating Manchester United at Anfield last weekend. The Reds are currently sitting at the top of the Premier League table, just one point above Manchester City so a victory would mean that Jurgen Klopp’s men will be top of the table at Christmas which could give them a huge psychological boost in the title race.
The Merseyside club are expected to line up in their usual 4-3-3 formation with both James Milner and Jordan Henderson likely to be back as part of Klopp’s midfield.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Wolves
Alisson Becker will take his place in goal for the Reds following a string of outstanding displays over the past few weeks. Simon Mignolet will be part of Klopp’s bench as usual.
The centre-half pair of Virgil Van Dijk and Dejan Lovren would start at Wolves in the absence of Joe Gomez and Joel Matip.
Andrew Robertson will once again look to impress down the left side while Nathaniel Clyne would try to make the most out of another start in Klopp’s first-team. Trent Alexander-Arnold is a significant doubt for this clash due to a foot injury which would mean Clyne retains his place at right-back.
Liverpool have the best defensive record in the Premier League after conceding just seven goals in 17 league matches so far. So we can expect them to keep things tidy at the back against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men on Friday.
Both James Milner and Jordan Henderson got a well-deserved rest against Manchester United last weekend so they should be fresh and ready to start in this upcoming clash at the Molineaux. Georginio Wijnaldum is expected to join them in midfield as the Dutch workhorse looks to put in another strong shift at the middle of the park.
Liverpool’s front three picks themselves with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all set to start tomorrow night. Xherdan Shaqiri will once again find himself on Klopp’s bench despite scoring a match-winning brace against the Red Devils last Sunday. The Swiss international might come off the bench later on against Wolves and try to make an impact in the attacking end of the pitch.
