How Liverpool could line up against Wolverhampton Wanderers

Sports Mole looks at how Liverpool could line up for Thursday night's Premier League showdown with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Liverpool continue their march towards the Premier League title on Thursday night when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

There was a sense of euphoria and unbridled belief around Anfield as the Reds extended their lead at the top of the table to 16 points with a 2-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday, making it 21 wins from 22 games this season.

Jurgen Klopp's side now look like certainties to go on and claim a first title for 30 years, but they will still be wary of a Wolves team that was cruelly denied a draw in the reverse fixture by VAR.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how Liverpool could line up for the midweek contest.

Klopp could welcome Fabinho back into his starting lineup for the first time since November after the Brazilian made his return as a sub during Sunday's win over United.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain appears to be the most likely to make way given the form of Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum, although there is a chance that Klopp will take a little longer to ease Fabinho back to first-team action with another appearance from the bench.

Joel Matip was also back amongst the subs on Sunday, but he could face a more difficult task to regain a place in the team with the partnership between Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk helping Liverpool to seven successive clean sheets.

Dejan Lovren is now back in training and close to a return too, but this match comes just too soon for Xherdan Shaqiri.

The front three is unlikely to change with an FA Cup tie at Shrewsbury Town coming up this weekend, meaning that Sadio Mane, who scored the winner in the reverse fixture, will start alongside Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino once again.

Firmino's goal drought at Anfield has been well documented, but the Brazilian's last 10 Liverpool goals have all come away from home and he will be hopeful of increasing that tally at Molineux.
