Liverpool vs Wolves: Team News and Preview

Liverpool will play in front of their own fans for the first time since being crowned champions, as 2,000 supporters return against Wolves.

Former wolves forward Diogo Jota will be hoping to get one over his former teammates.

Jurgen Klopp’s side head into the weekend with just a goal difference holding them off the top of the table. But with Chelsea’s win taking them ahead, the Reds will be trying to get back to the top. If Wolves break the Reds’ long unbeaten run at home, they could climb to within only one point of their opponents.

The imperious record of Liverpool at home is one thing that has not changed in the absence of supporters. Their unbeaten streak now stands at 64 games. It’s the second-longest such run in English football history-although they have won 29 of their last 30.

It is a remarkable fact that a considerable chunk of their current squad has never lost a league match at Anfield. The team including Alisson Becker, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson, Fabinho, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mohamed Salah, and Sadio Mane are in great touch.

Wolves will be looking to stop the run. It is Wolves’ best start to a top-flight campaign since 1979-80. In a season where many of the ‘big six’ have struggled, victory at Anfield may just raise hopes of a top-four push this term.

The Reds remain without Allison Becker, Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, James Milner, Thiago Alcantara, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita. While doubts remain for Henderson and Robertson. Good news also has come with Alexander-Arnold back in training.

Wolves will be without Jiminez after a nasty head clash with David Luiz last weekend. Jonny remains sidelined for the visitors, but Romain Saiss is available again after recovering from coronavirus.

Possible Lineups :

Liverpool:

Kelleher; N Williams, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson; Curtis Jones, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane;

Wolverhampton Wanderers:

Patricio; Semedo, Boly, Coady, Marcal; Dendoncker, Moutinho; Traore, Podence, Neto; Silva
