Since the disappointing performance against Wolves in the first tie, Wolves went on to record an impressive 1-0 win against West Ham while Liverpool suffered a humiliating 3-0 drubbing by Brighton.The Reds have many key players out. Darwin Núñez’s availability was in doubt when Jurgen Klopp spoke earlier while Stefan Bajčetić and James Milner have returned to training. being close to available but Klopp is unsure if they can be ready in time. After having just 39% of the possession against Brighton Liverpool will need to improve considerably to progress.
Wolves on the other hand have improved steadily since the arrival of Julen Lopetegui.
Players like Ruben Neves, Matheus Nunes, and Daniel Podence are starting to show their qualities as Wolves look to win their first trophy since the Championship in 17/18.
Although Liverpool have injuries Wolves are not without theirs with players such as Pedro Neto, Boubacar Traore, Chiquinho and Sasa Kalajdzic all guaranteed to be injured with Diego Costa being a doubt with a knock. For Liverpool Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Arthur Melo, and Virgil van Dijk long term absentees. Darwin Núñez may not be risked.
