Kelleher And Alexander Arnold To Start: Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves

After an outstanding performance against Ajax, young goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher is almost certain to keep his place in goal ahead of Adrian as Liverpool face Wolves at Anfield tomorrow.

In defence, Trent Alexander-Arnold is back in training and it will be up to Jurgen Klopp whether he opts to put the right-back straight back in. Neco Williams may have done well on Tuesday but Wolves’ attack will cause a lot of problems and it may be the case that the Reds go with experience.

Klopp is unlikely to change the rest of the back four, with Joel Matip and Fabinho playing as the two centre-backs. Andy Roberton did pick up an ankle injury versus Ajax but it is hoped he is available to start.

Liverpool do have Naby Keita back fit but they won’t want to risk a recurrence of his hamstring injury so the Guinean is expected to be on the bench. Ever-present Georginio Wijnaldum will likely start once more, along with captain Jordan Henderson (fitness permitting) in a midfield two.

As the Reds are still light on central midfielders, Klopp may once again opt for a 4-2-3-1, which could see Roberto Firmino start as the number 10, behind Diogo Jota, with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane on the two flanks.

Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves:

Kelleher, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Diogo Jota, Mane
