Predicted Wolves lineup against Liverpool

Bruno Lage’s Wolves squad is looking fairly stretched as we approach the festive period.

The substitutes bench against Burnley was short of a player and included two goalkeepers as well as academy players.

Daniel Podence may well return against Liverpool but he is still waiting on a negative Covid tests and has not trained all week.

Ruben Neves is back from suspension and will expect to take up his place in the heart of Wolves’ midfield, most likely replacing Leander Dendoncker.

In our predicted XI, we’ve kept the rest of the team the same, thanks in part to the aforementioned lack of options.

It is hard to see any potential changes to the back five and goalkeeper which has kept clean sheets in each of its last three matches.

Perhaps Podence could come in for Adama Traore, but would Lage really throw in a player who has missed the last two games and has been unable to train with the team this week?

It seems likely that the reintroduction of Neves will be the only change as Wolves take on a Liverpool side in impressive form of late.
