Liverpool will travel to the West Midlands to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineaux Stadium on Monday night hoping to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat against Manchester City in the Premier League. The Reds are currently sitting at the top of the Premier League table, four points clear of the Citizens.
So Jurgen Klopp might prioritise on the league and rest most of his first-team starters to keep them fresh for the upcoming league fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion. It could mean starts for a lot of youngsters in what is expected to be a usual 4-3-3 formation for the Merseyside outfit.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup Vs Wolves
Simon Mignolet will lineup in goal for the Merseyside giants despite making just one appearance in Klopp’s first-team so far in this campaign. It came against Chelsea in the third round of the EFL Cup a few months back when the Belgian goalie shipped in 2 goals in a hard-fought 2-1 loss at Anfield.
He would be hoping for a much better outcome on Monday night against Nuno Espirito Santo’s team. The defensive pair of Ki-Jana Hoever and Conor Masterson are expected to start at the heart of the Liverpool backline with both youngsters looking to impress with this rare opportunity of playing as part of Klopp’s starting XI. The German boss has shown in the past that he is willing to give some of his talented young players a chance so it would be a big day for the lucky duo.
The talented Rafael Camacho could deputise at right-back while Alberto Moreno fills in as the left-back on the other side.
The trio of Curtis Jones, James Milner and Naby Keita could make up the midfield for the away side as they look to find a nice blend of youth and experience in order to win the battles at the centre of the pitch. All three of them have never started together before so it would be some challenge for them to develop a good understanding at such a tough place like the Molineaux.
Jurgen Klopp could play his fringe three as his front three on Monday night. The likes of Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and Xherdan Shaqiri have hardly made first-team starts for Liverpool this season so they could get a rare chance to impress by scoring a few goals against Wolves at the start of next week.
