🔭 Wolves vs Liverpool: Team news & likely starting XIs

Molineux is the venue for Monday night's Premier League tussle between Wolves and Liverpool.

The champions have plummeted to eighth in the table courtesy of a dreadful run of home form since the turn of the year, now sitting just eight points ahead of Wolves. Here is the latest team news ahead of kickoff in Wolverhampton at 22:00 CAT. 

Wolves

Wolves remain without star striker Raúl Jiménez, while Monday's game will also come too soon for Fernando Marçal and Daniel Podence. A goalless draw against Aston Villa last time out could lead Nuno to name an unchanged backline, but Fábio Silva is pushing for a recall up top at the expense of Willian José, who's yet to open his account for the club.

🧮 Likely XI (3-4-3):

Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Saïss; Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Neto, Silva, Traoré

✅ FACT: Rúben Neves has netted in three of Wolves’ last seven league games. 

Liverpool

Roberto Firmino will face a late fitness test ahead of this match having missed the last two games with a knee issue. Manager Klopp confirmed that he wants "consistency" at centre-back so Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak are once again expected to partner up in defence with Fabinho continuing in midfield after returning to his favoured and more natural position. 

Liverpool could name an unchanged side from the one which dispatched RB Leipzig in the Champions League, meaning that Diogo Jota is in line to face his old side.

🧮 Likely XI (4-3-3):

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Phillips, Kabak, Robertson; Thiago, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Jota, Mané

✅ FACT: Sadio Mané scored for Liverpool against Leipzig and nobody has netted more often in this Premier League head-to-head than the Senegalese superstar (three goals).
