Team News:

Liverpool's scarcely-believable injury list continues to grow, with up to 11 first-team players - including arguably seven of their strongest XI - potentially missing this match.

Andrew Robertson and Jordan Henderson became the latest players to join the list of possible absentees when they picked up knocks in midweek, although Klopp is hopeful that his left-back and captain will recover in time for this match.

Robertson is likely to be the only member of the first-choice back five who will start, although there was a positive update on Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has now returned to training after a calf injury and could be involved in the matchday squad on Sunday.

Naby Keita is in a similar position following a hamstring problem and, while both are back in contention, Klopp is likely to be cautious over throwing them straight back in from the start considering the nature of their muscle injuries and the packed schedule ahead.

Alisson Becker will once again miss out and be replaced by Kelleher, who impressed on his Champions League debut against Ajax and has now usurped Adrian as Liverpool's number two.

The Reds also remain without Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, James Milner, Thiago Alcantara, Xherdan Shaqiri and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, although the latter is not thought to be too far away from returning.

Diogo Jota is expected to start against his former club and could become only the second player to score both for and against Wolves in the Premier League era, after Stephen Hunt.

Doing so would also see Jota become only the fourth player to score in each of their first five Premier League home games for a specific club, although he would still be some way short of Alan Shearer's remarkable record of netting in his first 15 such games for Newcastle United.
Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Kelleher; N Williams, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane; Jota

Wolves will be without Jimenez for the foreseeable future as he begins to work his way back from the sickening fractured skull he suffered against Arsenal.

Record signing Fabio Silva could be set for an extended run in the first team as a result, while rumoured Liverpool transfer target Adama Traore will be hopeful of another start.

Pedro Neto is expected to start again having already equalled his goal tally from last season, with his three strikes in 10 matches so far being worth five points for Wolves.

Jonny remains sidelined for the visitors, but Romain Saiss is available again after recovering from coronavirus.
Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Semedo, Boly, Coady, Marcal; Dendoncker, Moutinho; Traore, Podence, Neto; Silva
Wolverhampton Wanderers Premier League form: WDWLDW

Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
