Liverpool will take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Thursday night hoping to restore their 16-point over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table. However, Wolves won’t be any pushovers after they managed to make an incredible comeback and win against Southampton last weekend.
Nuno Espirito Santo will be fearless in his approach to the game and is expected to opt for a 3-4-3 formation. The Portuguese manager will instruct his players to keep a good defensive shape against the Merseyside giants and try to hit them on the counter. The pace of Adama Traore and Pedro Neto could cause a few problems for the Liverpool defenders in midweek.
Jurgen Klopp will stick with his preferred 4-3-3 formation and might go in with the same starting XI that featured in the 2-0 win over Manchester United last weekend. The Reds will look to press the opposition high up the pitch so that they can win the ball back and create some decent scoring opportunities going forward.
Diogo Jota, Willy Boly and Ruben Vinagre remain sidelined for Wolves. However, Nuno Espirito Santo has no fresh injury concerns to cope with heading into this clash versus the Premier League leaders.
Wolves Predicted XI
Patricio, Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Traore, Jimenez, Neto
Naby Keita and James Milner won’t be available for this trip to the West Midlands. Both Xherdan Shaqiri and Dejan Lovren are unlikely to be ready in time for this midweek clash in the English top-flight.
Liverpool Predicted XI
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane
Raul Jimenez and Pedro Neto will pose a threat to the Liverpool defence. Conor Coady will also need to put in a captain’s performance against his former club.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will once again be expected to put in a goal-scoring display up top. Jordan Henderson has enjoyed a rich vein of form in recent weeks so his performance in midfield could determine the outcome of this contest.
The bookmakers have made Liverpool the favourites to emerge victorious at the Molineux Stadium on Thursday as they are priced at 8/13. The draw has been listed as 14/5 while Wolves are 19/4 underdogs to pull off an upset versus the champions of Europe.
