LIV Vs WOL Fantasy Team Probable Playing 11 And Match Report: Wolverhampton’s woeful record at Anfield looks set to extend with Liverpool fast emerging into a ruthless juggernaut.
Despite being riddled with injuries and being forced to deploy a makeshift defence for a large part of the season, Liverpool have not let those shortcoming hinder their campaign. Refusing to be hampered by the string of players out on the injury bed, the club has shown by its defending the title this term by navigating its way past all the ever increasing problems.
However, for the first time this term, the brunt of injuries looked to have played his part with Liverpool being put to the sword by Brighton. With not many players to turn to, the side only managed to pull off a 1-1 draw on the day, a result which refrained the side from moving into top spot.
While the side did manage to make up for that performance with a 1-0 win against Ajax in the Champions League to qualify from Group D, the club knows it needs to iron out some prevalent issues. And with Wolverhampton bound to make for a tricky test, Liverpool know they await a stern and stiff challenge today.

Top Goal Scorer

With Alisson suffering a fresh injury, Jurgen Klopp decided to hand over Caoimhin Kelleher is first outing at the club. And the young goal-keeper impressed on his debut, showing he has the mettle to compensate for Alisson.
What Liverpool have done well in the opening ten gameweeks of the season is show defensive solidarity and awareness despite missing out on the services of a string of regular names. And with Wolverhampton bereft of striker’s Raul Jimenez’s services today, this clash can end into another cleansheet in Liverpool’s favour.
It will see us opt for the triad of Andrew Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Fabinho from the side.
Back at the club where he made his name and prompted Liverpool to indulge in his services, Diogo Jota will be extremely eager to impress today. And given the form he’s in with him scoring against Brighton, the Liverpool man can easily come alive today as well.
Sadio Mane who has the four goals will join up while the assist against Arsenal makes Leander Dendoncker the first pick from Wolverhampton. Pedro Neto who accrued his third goal in the same contest along with his second assist as well will be his partner with Ruben Neves brining an end to the set of selections from the side.
The attacking quartet is completed by Daniel Podence who has two goals and two assists to show for his troubles. Liverpool meanwhile will see their top scorer with the 8 goals, Mohamed Salah make a way into our side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
His assist against Brighton makes Salah our side’s captain while Jota is the vice-captain.
