Wolves v Liverpool - Preview and possible lineups

Matt Morley by Matt Morley @rfutbol - 0 +11k

We take a look ahead to Monday night's FA Cup third round clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool at Molineux.

TEAM NEWS:

Wolves: Forward Diogo Jota could be involved after returning to training following a hamstring problem, whilst midfielder Romain Saiss has also overcome a knee problem in time to feature.

Liverpool: Defenders Joe Gomez (fractured leg) and Joel Matip (fractured collarbone) both remain sidelined, with a host of players likely to come into the side. Alberto Moreno and Simon Mignolet will both start, whilst  Rafael Camacho and Curtis Jones could both feature in some capacity.

WHO IS SAYING WHAT?

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo on Liverpool:

"We know it's a fantastic team and manager. It's going to be very tough, we must prepare well.

"They are very organised, very intense, have individual quality, press well, and their counter-attack is one of the best there is."

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp on his side's chances of winning the competition:

"How can we speak in the first round of the FA Cup about winning it? It's a very important competition but we have to make sure we can play with the right intensity. For this you need - if you can do it - to make changes.

"We want to win everything but you cannot win it in the first game. You have to make sure you are as good as possible in that game, make the right decisions about the lineup - maybe tough decisions, maybe not that tough - and then we will see."

FORM:

DID YOU KNOW?

Wolves have lose five of their last seven home game.

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last six visits to Molineux.

Wolves have won four of their last six FA Cup ties against Liverpool.

Wolves have been knocked out of the FA Cup at the first attempt in six of the last seven seasons, with a shock victory over Liverpool two seasons ago the only exception.

Liverpool have never made it past the FA Cup fourth round under Jurgen Klopp.

The 'Reds' have won just five of their last 18 games in all competitions in January (W5, D5, L8).

POSSIBLE LINEUPS:

Wolves: Ruddy; Dendoncker, Bennett, Boly; Iorfa, Neves, Saiss, Vinagre; Traore, Jota; Bonatini.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Moreno; Fabinho, Keita, Lallana; Shaqiri, Origi, Sturridge.
