Premier League 2020-21 Preview: Liverpool vs Wolverhampton

Following their narrow win over the visitors AFC Ajax in the Champions League 2020-21 Group D Match, Liverpool Fc are due to play their Next Match against the visitors Wolverhampton Wolverhampton Wanderers Fc in the Premier League.

Date: 06 December 2020 (Sunday) ; Time: 7:15 p.m (BST) kick-off ; Venue: Anfield, England.

With a hectic December 2020 schedule to navigate, Liverpool Fc (The Reds) will feel relieved to have secured their passage to the Champions League Round of 16 Stage as Group D Winners and with a game to spare.

However, the Reds will be preparing well against Wolverhampton Wolverhampton Wanderers Fc (The Wolves) who are proven to be a tricky opponent capable of springing a surprise win.

Jürgen Klopp will be hoping to recall some of his key players and rest some key players that played in the Ajax Home Match.

As such, Takumi Minamino and Konstantinos Tsimikas as well as the Reds Academy Players like Nathaniel Phillips and Rhys Williams are likely to feature.

The last 3 contested matches between the two sides had resulted in narrow wins for the Reds and the Last Match, the Reds had won was thanks to a Solitary Goal from Sadio Mané in the Premier League Home Fixture Last Season.

 

Reds Team Injuries and Suspensions: Prior to the Ajax Home Fixture, Alisson Becker was ruled out due to a hamstring injury and the Brazilian Goalkeeper is likely to miss up to 2 weeks.

James Milner injured his hamstring during the Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club Away Fixture and the versatile Englishman will be ruled out for the foreseeable future.

Xheridan Shaqiri continues to be ruled out for an indeterminate period as a result of the leg muscle injury sustained while on international duty with Switzerland.

Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk are sidelined for an indeterminate period after undergoing successful surgeries on their injured knees.

No timescale has been set for the return of Van Dijk, Gomez and Shaqiri.

Thiago Alcântara is likely to be ruled for the remainder of this year as the Spaniard is currently recovering from his knee injury sustained during the Everton Away Match.

After sustaining a hamstring injury during Leicester City Fc Home game, Naby Keïta is due to return back in action.

Since his hamstring injury, Trent Alexander-Arnold is ahead of schedule for his recovery and is edging closer to his return back to the side. The young Englishman could feature in the Wolves Home Match after undergoing some light training and rehabilitation process.

Despite missing the AFC Ajax Home Fixture, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also edging closer to full fitness after picking up an injury during the Preseason in Austria.

 

Verdict: The Reds will need to be wary of the Wolves as Nuno Espírito Santo’s Men are more than capable of producing a shock result even without their Star Striker Raúl Jiménez who is currently recovering from his head injury sustained during the Arsenal Fc Away Fixture.

Adama Traoré is a player that is very much liked by Klopp. In the absence of Jiménez; Traoré and Rúben Neves will likely play a crucial part for the Wolves.

One Reds Player looking forward to the game will be Diogo Jota as this will be first time for Diogo Jota to play against his former side the Wolves. Jota joined the Reds during the Summer Transfer Window 2020 as a backup mainly for Mané and Roberto Firmino.

The young Portuguese has scored several crucial Goals for the Reds which helped him to firmly cement his spot in the side.
