Match Preview: Liverpool vs Wolves

Date & time: Sunday 12th May, 3pm (BST)

Where: Anfield

What channel: Sky Sports Football

Referee: Martin Atkinson


The result in the week is now 5 days old, but it still defies all logic. 3-nil down from the first leg, in the Champions League semi-final against the best team in Europe.


Then you go on to win the second leg 4-nil, exactly the right score that would take you through without needing extra-time. Again, it was against the best team in Europe.


But tomorrow we will welcome our final opponents to Anfield in the Premier League, knowing that, as unlikely as it still is, we could end the day as champions.


That all relies very heavily, of course, on Brighton taking at least a home draw against Man City but as we saw in the week, stranger things have happened already.

Injuries & Suspension

After missing Bobby Firmino, Mo Salah and Naby Keita for the match mid-week, it's good to know that we'll welcome back Salah for the Wolves match, at least.


Meanwhile, Andy Robertson, who went off at half-time after a nasty kick out from Suarez, and Jordan Henderson who was only able to keep on keeping on after painkillers should return,


There are no other major concerns for Liverpool, with Adam Lallana and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain both having trained again on Friday and may be in the match-day squad.


Wolves have no injury concerns of their own.

Form

Liverpool: W-W-L-W-W (all comps)

Wolves: L-D-W-W-W (all comps)

Predicted line-up

Given that we will see Mo return, after missing the win in mid-week, along with Andy Robertson and our captain, it should be a very strong team we see sent out against Wolves.


With City at Brighton at the same time, looking to take the three points to confirm their second title in two years, all the Reds can do is field their strongest team. And win.

Starting line-up: Alisson, Trent, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Mane, Origi and Salah .
