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


Liverpool are waiting for a trio of injured players before facing Wolves on Saturday.

Trent Alexander-Arnold has withdrawn from England duty with a hamstring problem while Ibrahima Konate has been absent in recent weeks with a similar problem.

Jurgen Klopp, who rejected suggestions he wanted the Germany job during the international break, has also been without Thiago Alcantara for several months ahead of his potential return when Premier League action resumes.

Virgil van Dijk is certainly missing from the lunchtime trip to Molineux, with his suspension extended to two games for inappropriate conduct following his red card at Newcastle.

Liverpool secured a comfortable 3-0 win over Aston Villa before the break and Klopp could welcome back Diogo Jota against his former club after a worrying update was sent by Uruguay head coach Marcelo Bielsa, on the fitness of in-form striker Darwin Nunez this week. .

Ryan Gravenberch will be eligible to make his debut, but he will most likely be named to the bench.

Liverpool XI predicted: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Gomez, Robertson; Jones, MacAllister, Szoboszlai; Salah, Nunez, Diaz

Doubts: Alexander-Arnold, Konaté, Thiago

Suspended: Van Dijk

Time and date: 12:30 BST, Saturday 16 September 2023
