Wolverhampton Wanderers will play hosts to Liverpool at the Molineux Stadium on Monday night as both sides look to get the better of each other in the Premier League. The Reds managed to secure a comfortable 2-0 win over Red Bull Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League knockout stages earlier this week, which will give them a much-needed confidence boost. However, Wolves were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw away at Aston Villa last weekend, so we can expect them to be desperate for the three points as well.

Talking Tactics

Nuno Espirito Santo will probably opt for a 3-5-2 formation and might instruct his players to defend in numbers and catch the inexperienced Liverpool defenders off-guard on the counter by using the pace of Adama Traore and Pedro Neto.

Jurgen Klopp will set his team up in a 4-3-3 formation and could ask his players to dominate the ball and create some clear-cut opportunities to win this important league clash on the road.

Team News

Wolves 

Both Marcal and Daniel Podence are unlikely to recover in time for this game. Otherwise, Wolves have no fresh injury concerns to worry about ahead of this encounter versus the Reds.

Liverpool

Klopp will be sweating on the fitness of Roberto Firmino and Caoimhin Kelleher. However, there are no new injuries which means that the German head coach will finally have a chance to name an unchanged starting XI for this game.

Liverpool Predicted XI

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Jota, Salah, Mane

Key Men

Wolves

Pedro Neto will carry most of the goal-scoring workload for Wolves, so he needs to have a good game. At the other end, the defensive performance of Conor Coady, Willy Boly and Romain Saïss could very well end up determining the fate of this Premier League match.

Liverpool

Both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane managed to get their names on the scoresheet in midweek, so they will be eager to find the back of the net once again at the start of next week. Fabinho will get the nod to anchor the midfield, which means that he would have to protect his teammates at the back by winning the ball quickly in midfield.

Odds

The bookmakers have made Liverpool the favourites to win this league contest as they were priced at 8/11. The draw has been listed at 11/4, while the West Midlands club are 15/4 underdogs to collect maximum points from this game at the Molineux.
