Liverpool will look to extend their unbeaten run in the Premier League when they host Wolves on Sunday
- Liverpool hold an impressive track record against Wolves, losing only one of their last twelve games
- Wolves’ last win against Liverpool in the Premier League came in 2010.
Despite almost half of the squad having been hit with injuries, Jurgen Klopp has driven the Reds to a series of impressive results, not suffering a defeat since the 7-2 humiliation against Aston Villa.
However, the defending Champions failed to secure the top spot last week after drawing against Brighton, which then allowed Tottenham to maintain their supremacy in the table.
But Liverpool put up an impressive performance against Ajax in the Champions League, beating the Dutch outfit 1-0. Caoimhin Kelleher grabbed everyone’s attention with his performance between the sticks as the Irish youngster was the replacement for injured Alisson Becker.
Trent Alexander-Arnold has returned to the training and could be involved in the action on Sunday while Diogo Jota would face his former club for the first time since moving to Anfield in summer.
Caoimhin Kelleher; Neco Williams, Fabinho, Joel Matip, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane; Diogo Jota
Wolves ended their two-match winless run with an emphatic 2-1 win against Arsenal last weekend. However, the worst takeaway from the win was the head injury for Raul Jimenez.
Nuno Santo’s side can thwart the Reds by their relentless attack of Adama Traore, who has the tendency to leave Liverpool’s defenders behind.
Furthermore, Wolves can also push for the top-four race if they manage to stun the defending champions at their fortress Anfield.
Rui Patricio; Nelson Semedo, Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Marcal; Dendoncker, João Moutinho; Adama Traoré, Daniel Podence, Pedro Neto; Fabio Silva
