Liverpool XI vs Wolves: Predicted line-ups, confirmed team news and latest FA Cup injuries

L

Liverpool could give Cody Gakpo his debut in the FA Cup clash with Wolves on Saturday which would prove a much-needed boost for the Reds.

A long injury list now includes Virgil van Dijk after the defender was ruled out for around six weeks with a hamstring problem that requires specialist treatment.

Roberto Firmino is a doubt to feature in an attack that will be without Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota due to long-term issues.

Arthur Melo will also be out, but Liverpool are hoping to welcome James Milner back from a hamstring injury with Jordan Henderson following a concussion.

With Premier League opposition at Anfield and trophy chances dwindling this season, it will be interesting to see how well Jurgen Klopp rotates his squad for visiting Wolves.

Ibrahima Konate could drop out after a torrid spell in last weekend’s loss to Brentford while Andrew Robertson is fit to start, if called up.

Young midfielder Stefan Bajcetic is a candidate for a starting spot while Caoimhin Kelleher will return to his role as cup keeper.

Predicts Liverpool XI: Keller; Alexandre-Arnold, Gomez, Matip, Robertson; Jones, Bajcetic, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Gakpo.
