TIMELINE

How Liverpool could line up against Wolverhampton Wanderers

By , Senior Reporter | 2mo
Ahead of Monday's FA Cup third-round tie between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool, Sports Mole looks at how the Reds could line up.

The concluding FA Cup third-round fixture takes place at Molineux on Monday night as Wolverhampton Wanderers play host to Liverpool.

Four days on from suffering their first Premier League loss of the campaign, Jurgen Klopp's men must avoid coming unstuck against Wolves in this competition for the second time in three seasons.

The Reds have played 11 games since November 24, nine of those in the Premier League, but Klopp is expected to name a fairly strong starting lineup in the West Midlands.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the Premier League leaders could line up.

Out: Joe Gomez (ankle), Joel Matip (collarbone), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee)
Doubtful: Alberto Moreno (back)

Klopp remains without Gomez and Matip in central defence, while Moreno has been struggling with a back injury and Nathaniel Clyne has been sent to Bournemouth, so the back four may remain unchanged from the 2-1 loss at Manchester City.

Simon Mignolet is in line for just a second start of the season in place of Alisson Becker, however, and there are expected to be further changes higher up the pitch.

Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi, who have a combined 336 minutes of playing time between them in the top flight this season, should come in for regulars Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.

Should Klopp stick with a 4-3-3 formation, that leaves a spot up for grabs on the left, which may well be taken by Sadio Mane, despite the Senegal forward being used 10 times over the past six weeks.

Elsewhere, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Adam Lallana are all in contention to return to the fold in central midfield, as is James Milner after being taken off before the hour mark at the Etihad Stadium.
