Predicted line-up: Liverpool vs Wolves

Darwin Núñez is expected to return to the starting XI.

Liverpool face Wolves at Molineux in need of a win.

Darwin Núñez is expected to come back into the line-up.

Stefan Bajcetic is expected to retain his place. Fabinho’s form has dipped in recent times but Klopp may show faith in him.

The German acknowledged that Fabinho is going through a tough patch midweek.

‘He knows he’s not flying and he has to work his way back,’ said Klopp. ‘He’s not the happiest person on the planet but he understands the decision not to pick him.

In this position, you need a guy who wins challenges, who protects everybody, but who plays football as well. For plenty of years Fabinho has been the best in that position.

‘At the moment, it’s not clicking. Some players haven’t reached the levels they have reached for us over the past five or six years. It’s not unusual.

‘One of the best examples is Marcus Rashford. The season he had last year and the season he is having this year, I’m not sure he can explain it. You have to fight and work through it.’
