Liverpool will entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield this Saturday afternoon as they look to bounce back with a positive performance at home. The Reds suffered a poor 4-1 defeat away at Napoli in midweek which has left the alarm bells ringing at the Merseyside club.
Jurgen Klopp will once again opt for a 4-3-3 formation and is expected to make a few tweaks to his starting XI for this game. Both Darwin Nunez and Joel Matip are expected to play from the start in this Premier League clash versus Bruno Lage’s men.
4-3-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Wolves
Alisson Becker will function in goal for the Reds after he shipped in four goals in his last outing. Joel Matip could come into the Liverpool side to partner Virgil Van Dijk in central defence. Both of them need to be at their best if they want to stop Wolves from scoring this weekend.
Trent Alexander-Arnold will function at right-back while Andrew Robertson hopes to put in a tireless shift on the other side as the left-back. Both of them will have to defend their penalty box well and also try to create some inviting chances in the final third.
Joe Gomez could be demoted to the bench for this game following his horror performance versus Napoli in midweek.
James Milner had a tough game at Naples earlier this week and could be dropped to the bench for this match. Hence, Klopp might name a midfield comprised of Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho and Harvey Elliott for this game this Saturday.
Both Thiago and Elliott would be given the responsibility to create some decent plays for their teammates in and around the Wolves penalty box.
Both Fabio Carvalho and Curtis Jones are major doubts for this contest as they are still recovering from their respective injuries.
Mohamed Salah has endured a poor run of form of late and will be eager to impress from the right flank. Luis Diaz scored Liverpool’s only goal against Napoli in midweek and will once again be Klopp’s main weapon from the left.
Darwin Nunez will get another chance to lead the line for the Merseyside giants on the attacking third of the field. The Uruguay international would be desperate to get his name on the scoresheet following a tough start to his career at Anfield.
Roberto Firmino will be available for selection on the bench and might come on to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if needed.
