Predicted Wolves XI to face Liverpool tonight

Wolverhampton Wanderers face Liverpool at Molineux in the Premier League tonight.

The pack host a Reds side that have been in remarkably poor form in the last couple of months.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have lost six of their last seven matches in the league and face a real battle to finish in the top four.

The previous result between the two sides was a very one-sided affair in the end.

Liverpool won 4-0 at Anfield back in December, and Nuno Espirito Santo will hope for a successful revenge mission this evening.

Wolves have had a decent break since the goalless draw with Aston Villa, so the manager will hopefully have some fresh legs at his disposal.

Rui Patricio will keep his place in goal, and a back five is probably likely.

£67,000-a-week rock Willy Boly (Spotrac) could return to the starting XI after making the bench for the past couple of games following his hamstring injury, and may play in a three with Conor Coady and Max Kilman, with Nelson Semedo and Jonny as the wing-backs.

In midfield, there’s a decent chance of Joao Moutinho starting after a good rest period, and Ruben Neves could partner his international colleague, with Leander Dendoncker, dropping out of the side.

The Belgian hasn’t been in the best form in recent weeks, and his starting berth could be vulnerable due to the return of Boly and freshness of Moutinho.

In attack, it seems Daniel Podence is still not particularly close to a return, so Adama Traore and Pedro Neto should be the wide men once more.

Willian Jose might get the nod over Fabio Silva as he has the potential to bully an inexperienced centre-back pairing of Ozan Kabak and Nat Phillips if Klopp selects them as expected.

Nuno will hope Traore can finally score or assist tonight – Trent Alexander-Arnold is on record (Goal) as saying he’s felt powerless against the Spaniard previously, and the struggling Englishman could be a source of joy for the explosive winger this evening.
