Wolves confirmed XI to face Liverpool

Wolves are facing Liverpool in their final Premier League game of the 2021/22 season – and the team news is in.

Bruno Lage is looking to end the campaign with a victory having overseen a poor past couple of months.

And it’s Liverpool at Anfield today, and there is potential for things to get ugly.

But Liverpool are fighting for the Premier League title and it could be that there are some nerves at play for the hosts.

Wolves will want to finish the season on a high, and the players may be feeling very motivated to deny Liverpool silverware.

There is also potentially added motivation for Wolves, given how the last game between these two sides panned out.

Divock Origi scored right at the death at Molineux back in December, which was a tough one to take given how good Wolves had been defensively.

Wolves confirmed XI to face Liverpool

Bruno Lage has made just a couple of changes to the side that started against Norwich City last weekend.

Jose Sa comes back in after being replaced by John Ruddy against the Canaries, and in front of him it’s the same three of Willy Boly, Conor Coady and Toti Gomes.

Romain Saiss is still injured, as is Max Kilman.

Jonny Castro Otto and Rayan Ait-Nouri are the wing-backs again.

In midfield, Lage has gone with the trio of Ruben Neves, Leander Dendoncker and Joao Moutinho, as he likes to do against the bigger clubs in the Premier League.

Dendoncker comes in place of Hwang Hee-chan.

Pedro Neto and Raul Jimenez pair up and will hopefully look to cause some problems for Liverpool.

Daniel Podence, who has been so influential for Wolves this season, returned last weekend against Norwich. Some felt he might have started today, but he is on the bench once more.
