Away against Wolves is a potential banana skin for our men in red, but this is a different Liverpool isn’t it? Here is who The Anfield Talk’s Ian (@ianyoungkop) thinks will take to the field at Molyneux tonight.
Alisson: Alisson may have made his second big mistake as a Liverpool goalkeeper, but he’s still yet to lose us any points. There’s no other keeper in the league I’d rather have between our posts.
Clyne: Clyne without being top of his game last Sunday, impressed against United. I think if this game had been played earlier then Milner would’ve stepped in, but I think pretty much a week is long enough for him to recuperate.
Lovren: We can pretty much assume that while Gomez is out injured, the van Dijk – Lovren partnership is going to be our go to duo.
van Dijk: Our captain elect, just gets better and better each match, scarily so, how good could he possibly get?
Robertson: “I’m tired just from watching Robertson” was one of the last things uttered from Jose Mourinho as Manchester United manager. From a slow start to the season, “Robbo” is completely and utterly back to his best. The guys energy is unmatched, and can’t see him rested anytime soon!
Wijnaldum: Wijnaldum seems to be benefiting from the inclusion of Fabinho as his metaphorical chains have been loosened and we see him further up the field. If he could add more goals to his game, there’d be a lot more talk of Gini!
Fabinho: Fabinho having now been given a chance, has impressed in his run of games. Running each of the last couple of games he’s started in. Could we have finally found our Mascherano replacement?
Shaqiri: After his super sub performance last week, I’d be surprised if Xherdan isn’t a starter today. At £13 million, Xherdan could be the bargain of the season. Hope you are watching, Charlie Adam.
Mané: I feel today Liverpool could have more of a chance to counter attack, so resting any of our front three today could be a mistake!
Firmino: “Bobby had arguably his best game for us last weekend, and hopefully he can carry his form forward. Hopefully he’ll be playing the role of the number nine, rather than the deeper lying role he’s been playing for the majority of the season.
Salah: Mo, despite not being on the scoresheet against United, looks like he’s about to explode at any minute. Still the best attacking player in the Premier League!
