Wolverhampton Wanderers are hoping to heap more misery on Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side take on the Reds at Molineux and go in search of revenge after losing the reverse fixture 4-0 back in December.
Jurgen Klopp’s side are struggling badly at the moment having lost six of their last seven games in the competition.
But last night they returned to winning ways in the Champions League, beating RB Leipzig 2-0 again to reach the quarter-finals.
There was one key change Klopp was able to make for his side, and it was something that will be a blow for Wolves if the German makes the same call on Monday.
Fabinho was restored as the midfield anchor against the Bundesliga outfit, and it was the first time he’s started in his natural position since the Merseyside Derby on October 17.
Liverpool have had terrible luck with injuries this season especially at centre-half, so the Brazilian has been forced to operate mainly as a makeshift central defender in the past months.
But against Leipzig he finally returned to midfield, and they looked so much better as a result.
A concern for Wolves
Wolves have really struggled to demonstrate a cutting edge in several games this season.
Fabinho, on his day, is arguably the top holding midfield player in the division and him playing in his natural position would be a big boost for the Reds.
Speaking after last night’s game, Klopp said of the ex-Monaco star (official Champions League): “Best in the world at number 6 position, it is clear.”
The South American – who was named Man of the Match – is extremely effective operating as a shield for the defence, and Wolves could potentially find life very difficult if that’s where he’s going to play.
