Liverpool will face off against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday afternoon as they hope to earn a positive result on the road in the Premier League. The Reds suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat at the hands of Brighton and Hove Albion in the FA Cup, so they will be eager to right the wrongs in the league this weekend.
Jurgen Klopp will probably stick with his favoured 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make some tweaks to his first XI for this game. Joel Matip and Darwin Nunez will get a chance to play from the start in this crucial clash away at the Molineux.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Wolves
Alisson Becker will feature in between the sticks for the Reds after shipping in a couple of goals in his last league outing. Joe Gomez will function alongside Joel Matip at the centre of Liverpool’s backline as they try to keep things solid at the back during the 90 minutes.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will probably keep his spot at right-back while Andrew Robertson hopes to give a good account of himself on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will get the license to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.
Nathaniel Phillips and Kostas Tsimikas will be available for selection on the bench as they offer cover for the defensive positions.
Thiago Alcantara, Stefan Bajcetic and Naby Keita will anchor the midfield for the Merseyside club as they try to win the 50-50 battles and offer some decent service to the front players.
Fabinho and Jordan Henderson will have to settle for a spot on the bench as he waits for his chance to shine in the second 45 minutes if Klopp opts to call upon their services.
Cody Gakpo could get a chance to catch the eye as the left-sided wide player. Mohamed Salah would try to threaten the Wolves goal from the right flank.
Darwin Nunez will get the nod to lead the line for Liverpool on the attacking end of the field. The Uruguay international has to find a way to cause a few problems for the opposition defenders this Saturday afternoon.
Fabio Carvalho is a major doubt for this game. However, Harvey Elliott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be named on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the latter stages if needed.
