Liverpool will look to end what has been a brilliant 2019 on a high when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday.

Despite their fine run of form and performances, this is the Merseyside outfit’s ninth match in December, and Jurgen Klopp may well be tempted to make changes even if he is missing the likes of Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip, Fabinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain through injury.

Alisson keeps his spot between the sticks, and with the likes of Matip and Lovren absent we think that Klopp will only make one change to his backline against Nuno Santo’s men.
We feel that second-half substitute against Leicester – James Milner – will fill one of the full-back spots to give one of Andy Robertson or Trent Alexander-Arnold a much-needed rest – and we think it could be the latter despite his wonder performance against Brendan Rodgers’ men where he had a hand in three goals and scored the other in the 4-0 win.
There are also changes in midfield too, with Adam Lallana and Xherdan Shaqiri coming in for Naby Keita and Jordan Henderson, who suffered a knock late on against the Foxes.
There is one change to the first-choice attacking trio as well, with Divock Origi coming in on the left-hand side to allow Sadio Mane a break from the starting XI.
