Match preview

Thiago left out? - How Liverpool could line up against Wolves

Thiago Alcantara has featured frequently for Liverpool recently so it may be time for a rest

Liverpool blew away Everton in the Merseyside derby on Wednesday evening which will likely lead to manager Jurgen Klopp fielding a similar XI to the one that started proceedings at Goodison Park.

The Reds won 4-1 on the night, with Mohamed Salah scoring a double and Jordan Henderson and Diogo Jota getting on the scoresheet.

Klopp isn't blessed with an array of options for rotation at the moment as Naby Keita, Joe Gomez, Roberto Firmino, Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones all remain absent.

One position he can introduce a player to freshen things up is in central midfield, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain coming in to replace Thiago Alcantara.

Thiago has been excellent since his return to the team, but a niggling injury is never far away for the Spaniard, so Klopp may opt to give him a rest against Wolves.

Alisson will start in goal behind a likely back four of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip and Andy Robertson.

Jordan Henderson was magnificent against Everton and will feature again in midfield alongside Fabinho and Oxlade-Chamberlain if Thiago is rested.

In attack, it will be Salah, Sadio Mane and Jota again.
