After the extraordinary high of knocking out Barcelona in the Champions League, Liverpool players will need to regain their focus for one final Premier League game this weekend.
It’s unlikely that Manchester City will slip up against Brighton, but the Reds will want to ensure they clinch the three points against Wolves just in case they do.
Mo Salah will likely return for the match after having to sit out the Barca game with a concussion. Roberto Firmino is still recovering from a groin strain and is unlikely to start.
Andy Robertson had to come off at halftime on Tuesday with a calf injury and is a major doubt for Sunday. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana should return after recovering from muscle strains.
Naby Keita won’t feature again this season after rupturing a tendon in his thigh during the first leg defeat to Barcelona.
Liverpool’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves:
Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, van Dijk, Milner, Henderson, Fabinho, Lallana, Salah, Origi, Mane
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has a fully fit squad to choose from. Considering the toll a Premier League season can take on the fitness of players, that’s quite remarkable.
Wolves’ Predicted XI:
Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Jonny, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Neves, Diogo Jota, Jimenez
At the bookies, Liverpool are heavily favoured to get the three points with Unibet having them at 7/20 odds-on. A draw is best priced at 9/2 with Betway while a Wolves victory is currently 19/2 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 2-1 to Liverpool
