Liverpool vs: Wolves: Match Preview:
It’s the chance to get some revenge for Liverpool, who were brutally beaten 3-0 at Molineux in early February. The Reds have responded with a run of two wins and a draw in their last three league games but will have that defeat fresh in their memory.
Wolves have had a mixed run since that famous win, picking up four points from a possible nine to slowly edge their way away from relegation zone.
Thiago Alcantara, Joe Gomez and Luis Diaz have all been ruled out for this one by Jurgen Klopp, but Ibrahima Konate is available once again after overcoming his injury.
The boss also revealed that Darwin Nunez has responded well to treatment on his shoulder injury but insisted that he could not make any definitive statements about the Uruguay international’s involvement just yet.
Matheus Cunha is understood to have avoided a serious ankle injury after being stretchered off against Fulham last time out, but the Brazilian forward will not return for this one.
Taking Cunha’s place in the squad could be Pedro Neto after manager Julen Lopetegui confirmed the winger is ‘close to helping the squad’.
Hwang Hee-chan, Sasa Kalajdzic and Chiquinho all remain out, while Boubacar Traore has suffered a minor setback in his attempts to return from injury and will stay on the sidelines a little while longer.
