Reds boss Jurgen Klopp confirmed left-back Robertson and midfielder Henderson picked up knocks in the 1-0 win over Ajax. But both stars were pictured training ahead of the visit of Wolves in news which comes as a major boost for the Premier League champions. There is more good news for the Reds, too, as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita are nearing returns to full fitness - though neither are expected to be immediately thrust back into the starting XI.
As such, Neco Williams may continue at right-back after he picked up an assist and a clean sheet against Ajax. Fabinho and Matip are likely to continue their pairing in central defence alongside Robertson at left-back, while Kostas Tsimikas is another option there. In goal, Caoimhin Kelleher may be handed his first Premier League start after starring in the win over Ajax and in the absence of injured No. 1 Alisson.

Klopp's trusted midfield stalwart Georginio Wijnaldum may be partnered by captain Henderson in a double pivot - allowing Klopp to utilise four of his attacking stars - while Curtis Jones is pushing for a start after netting the winner in midweek. Roberto Firmino played just 22 minutes off the bench against Ajax and may occupy the No. 10 role behind striker Mohamed Salah, with Sadio Mane on the left flank and Diogo Jota the right. Jota has been in fine form of late and scored in the 1-1 draw at Brighton last weekend to take his tally to 9 goals in 15 appearances for Liverpool. The Portuguese forward will be hoping to be among the goals once more as he hosts his former side. Liverpool predicted starting XI (4-2-3-1): Kelleher; N Williams, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Henderson; Jota, Firmino, Mane; Salah.
