Liverpool are set to face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday night, with both hoping for a positive outcome. The Reds would hope Manchester City drop points against Aston Villa, which would see them lift the Premier League title ahead of the UCL final against Real Madrid.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were victorious over their rivals Chelsea in the FA Cup final. The Reds then managed to grind out a 2-1 win against Southampton and are now desperate to win the next fixture against Wolves if they are to have any hope of lifting the Premier League trophy.
Wolverhampton Wanderers remained grounded at 1-1 with Norwich City last weekend, which gives them the drive to return to winning ways in the upcoming encounter and finish strong.
Fabinho remains sidelined for the upcoming home encounter as he is dealing with a hamstring problem. Furthermore, Joe Gomez picked up ankle injury in the last fixture and will miss out on the upcoming encounter. Mohammed Salah, alongside Van Dijk, would likely not be risked in the final Premier League matchup.
Jurgen Klopp could probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with necessary changes to the starting XI.
Liverpool Predicted XI
Alisson; Robertson, Matip, Konate, Alexander-Arnold; Keita, Henderson, Thiago; Jota, Mane, Diaz
Wolves remain concerned with fresh injury issues as Nelson Semedo, Maximilian Kilman and Conor Ronan remain out with long term injuries. Romain Saiss has picked up a knee problem, and he will remain sidelined against the Reds. Daniel Podence should be fit enough to come off the bench. Jose Sa returns to operate in between the sticks.
Bruno Lage will probably opt for the tried and trusted 3-5-2 formation with minor tweaks to his first XI from the last game.
Wolves Predicted XI
Jose Sa; Boly, Coady, Gomez; Castro, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Ait-Nouri; Neto, Jimenez
The Reds will rely on the creativity of Jota, Mane and Diaz as they look to collectively produce a winning performance on Tuesday.
Thiago and Keita will be tasked with creating chances for the attacking trio.
Jose Sa will have to give a strong performance at the back if the Wolves are to keep a clean sheet in this game. Neto and Jiminez will carry most of the goal-scoring responsibility.
Neves will be tasked with distributing the ball efficiently and creating chances for the men up front.
