Liverpool predicted starting XI vs Wolves

Following on from their impressive 4-1 win over Merseyside rivals Everton in midweek, Liverpool are back in Premier League action once again this afternoon with a clash against Wolves at Molineux.

With the Reds still having Harvey Elliott, Roberto Firmino and Curtis Jones out injured, and Naby Keita and Joe Gomez only just returning to first-team training after recovering from injuries, here’s how we feel Jurgen Klopp could line up his side to take on Wolves. We anticipate that there will be two changes to the starting XI from Wednesday night’s derby triumph.

Unsurprisingly, we think Klopp will stick with Alisson Becker in goals considering that he has played in the majority of Liverpool’s league games so far this season. 

Similarly, given how he’s played in all but two of the Reds’ league games this season, scoring one goal and providing seven assists in the process, it seems a near-certainty that Trent Alexander-Arnold will take the right-back spot. 

For the left-back position, even though Andy Robertson – who has been described as a “complete player” in the past by Fabio Aurelio – impressed in the match at Goodison Park, we can see Klopp giving the Scotland international a rest today to see if Kostas Tsimikas has what it takes to prove himself against Wolves’ attacking players.

First up in this 2020/21 season quiz, how many PL goals did Mo Salah score?

At centre-backs, we can see Ibrahima Konate – who is currently earning a weekly wage of £71k-p/w according to Salary Sport – coming back in for Joel Matip alongside Virgil van Dijk as Klopp looks to make the most out of his entire squad to rest some players at the start of their busy winter schedule. 

In the midfield, with the injuries and midweek performances in mind, we think Klopp will stick with the same trio of Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Thiago Alcantara. 

Do you think Klopp should pick the same XI that started against Everton?

Yes

Yes

No

No

For the front three, with 28 league goals between them this season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Klopp go with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah on the wings with Diogo Jota through the middle to see if the Portuguese star can haunt his former side and secure another win for the travelling Reds on his 25th birthday. 

Whatever starting XI Klopp picks today, this will be a great opportunity for Liverpool to pick up another win and keep their streak going, with Wolves winning just two of their six previous league games, as the Reds seek to keep pace in the title race alongside Chelsea and Manchester City.
