Liverpool are currently sitting higher in the league table. They are in slot number 1 in the standings. After 18 rounds so far, they have 52 points from 17 wins, 1 draws and 0 losses. The team scored 46 goals and conceded 14 since the start of the season. Making their goal difference +32.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are number 5 in the league table standings. After 19 rounds so far, they have 30 points from 7 wins, 9 draws and 3 losses. The team scored 29 goals and conceded 24 since the start of the season. Making their goal difference +5.
Given the manner of Liverpool’s lead in the title race, coupled with the amount of games they have played in quick succession, on different continents, over the festive period, do not be surprised to see Jurgen Klopp shuffle his pack here.
Klopp doesn’t have many options in defence, however, unless James Milner drops in at right or left-back to give Trent Alexander-Arnold or Andrew Robertson, respectively, a rest.
The likes of Adam Lallana, Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi will hope to get rare starts if changes are made for Sunday, though Wolves represent a very difficult task.
Jordan Henderson suffered a cut leg in the win over Leicester on Boxing Day but Klopp afterwards insisted the injury was nothing serious and that his captain wanted to stay on. He may give him a rest here, however.
Nuno will have to check on the fitness levels of his players after they gave absolutely everything to beat Manchester City 3-2 on Friday night.
It would be a shame for the spectacle if the quick turnaround between matches prevents Wolves from fielding players like Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez at Anfield.
