Full Liverpool squad available for Wolves as Darwin Nunez returns, but four players left out



Full Liverpool available for Wolves in Premier League, including recent injuries to Darwin Nunez, Ibrahima Konate, Luis Diaz, Thiago Alcantara and Calvin Ramsay

Liverpool will be looking to get back to winning ways when they face Wolves in the Premier League tonight.

Reds welcome Wolves to Anfield in their best recast game. The original date for the match was in September, but it was postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

Jürgen Klopp’s side go into tonight’s fixture in a goalless draw against Crystal Palace at the weekend. The Liverpool manager will face a number of selection dilemmas ahead of tonight’s match. Luis Diaz, Thiago Alcantara and Calvin Ramsay remain unavailable due to their respective injuries. Joe Gomez is also unavailable as he is yet to recover from a fitness issue he had against Real Madrid last week.

Ibrahima Konaté will return to the team after more than a month’s absence due to injury. It remains to be seen, however, if the defender will be there from the start or if Klopp will continue the partnership between Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.

Darwin Nunez is also expected to be available after missing the draw against Palace with a shoulder injury. Klopp has confirmed that the striker is training normally ahead of tonight’s game and is struggling to participate. Here’s a look at the likely Liverpool squad that will be available against Wolves barring late injury concerns.

Goalkeepers: Adrian, Alisson, Caoimhin Kelleher.

Defenders: Andy Robertson, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Kostas Tsimikas, Nat Phillips, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk.

Midfielders: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Arthur Melo, Curtis Jones, Fabinho, Fabio Carvalho, Harvey Elliott, James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Naby Keita, Stefan Bajcetic.

Attackers: Cody Gakpo, Darwin Nunez, Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah.

Offside: Joe Gomez, Luis Diaz (knee), Calvin Ramsay (knee), Thiago Alcantara (hip).


GOOD NEWS: Liverpool vs Wolves line-up set, Konate and Nunez could return to provide options for Klopp

Our predicted XI if Liverpool take on Wolves in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp could be bolstered by the return of Ibrahima Konate and Darwin Nunez when his side take on Wolves in the Premier League at Anfield on Wednesday.

Konate has been out since late January with a hamstring injury and Nunez missed the 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace due to the shoulder injury he suffered against Newcastle United.

Klopp will have to decide whether to stick with Joel Matip as Virgil van Dijk’s partner for Julen Lopetegui’s side visit or give Konate some practice ahead of the big clash with rivals Manchester United at the weekend.

James Milner, who performed well at Selhurst Park on Saturday, and Kostas Tsimikas could be considered starters if Klopp decides Trent Alexander-Arnold or Andy Robertson need a break.

Fabinho and Stefan Bajcetic are set to return to the starting XI after both resting against Patrick Vieira’s side and skipper Jordan Henderson could support in midfield.

Possible replacement for Jurgen Klopp has been identified

Liverpool FC believe Bayern manager Julian Nagelsmann will be the ideal replacement for Jurgen Klopp.

According to Caught Offside, Liverpool are considering appointing Julian Nagelsmann as their new manager. This means that Klopp could well bid farewell to the club.

Brendan Rodgers was replaced by Klopp as Liverpool manager at the end of 2015. Since then we have grown into a European giant.

Under German tactics in that period, the Reds captured all the important trophies.
But this season has been a complete and utter bust. Furthermore, Liverpool appear to be a team that was not prepared for what was to come during the year. Furthermore, there were problems ranging from injuries to disappointing results.

Julian Nagelsmann is seen as the man to usher in a new era at Liverpool

Bayern Munich manager Julian Nagelsmann has been tipped as the ideal man to replace Jurgen Klopp should he leave Liverpool, as he believed the 35-year-old would seize the opportunity to move up to the Premier League. The club’s inability to sign a top midfielder is the main target of fan discontent. Most of us have long witnessed the decline of Jordan Henderson and the lack of competition from Fabinho Tavares has weakened us in defensive midfield.

To say the least, the Brazilian midfielder hasn’t been as outstanding as in previous seasons. Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have all struggled with injuries and given his age, James Milner cannot be counted on to put in a weekly effort.

Although Stefan Bajcetic has surprised everyone this season, we shouldn’t expect too much for the young Spaniard. Klopp hasn’t openly expressed his displeasure with his side’s inability to sign elite midfielders.

He admitted that Real Madrid beat them for Aurelien Tchouameni but that was about it. Aside from the fact that fans may feel like he’s remained silent given our underinvestment in midfield, Klopp really isn’t at fault in this situation.

Let’s get him some great players in the middle of the park this summer and we’ll see how he does business.

Nagelsmann, 35, is smart. Moreover, he’s someone Klopp would know given his connection to German football.
But it’s time to show your support and not look for replacements.
