      Naby Keita and Trent Alexander-Arnold were set to return to training Friday and should be available for the squad on Sunday. Hard to say if either will be able to play 90 minutes.

      Fans back at Anfield for the first time in several months.

      Nonetheless, should be a tricky contest.

      Too soon for the 2 lads Id guess.

      Id bevhappy to see R Williams or Philips partner Matip and push Fab back midfield. Gini prob needs a break at this point.

      Tricky tie. Good side Wolves. I always want us to win but with things as they are a point wouldnt be a disaster. My team

                               Kelleher
       Neco Philips/williams Matip Robbo

      Gini has been greatly overworked, but with 5 days rest i think he can play this one. He would then sit out Wednesday's game and return on the 13th against Fulham. That'd mean he would have played only 1 game from 12/2 to 12/13, plenty of rest.

      For Sunday, Keita can play the last 15-20 of the game then start Wednesday. Ditto for Trent.

                   Mane  Bobby  Jota



      Too risky against Wolves, we need as strong a CB pairing as possible for this, as others have pointed out the lads should have had a good amount of rest since the Ajax game plus they'll get a whole week off after this game. I'd be very very tempted to start Trent and have Keita as an option off the bench.

      If Naby is fit I'd like to see him start and rest Gini. Still need Fab pairing with Matip as a young gk Kelleher need better protect. Also if TAA start I'd like to see Tsimikas slot in to give Robbo at least some rest on the bench.

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would sub Trent at the 70th minute whatever the result is and insert Keita for Wijnaldum at the 70th minute too. Firmino depending how the front three will be playing.

      Suppose you’re right about Fab. Although he’s a monster at D M, wolves are a decent side who are always prepared to play open footy. Fabs experience and ability to read the game will probably benefit us more at CB under the current circumstances.

      Kelleher
      TAA-Matip-Philipps-Robbo
      Hendo-Fab-Keita
      Salah-Jota-Mané

      At halftime TAA & Keita gets substituted, no matter what (re-injury precaution). I'd try Minamino at Keita's position. He's not really good as a pure striker, but could blossom in some midfield role. Jürgen needs to find ways to implement guys like Minamino better because they are more than fresh!

      Really don't get all this pre planned substitution stuff. No gini ? Sorry but not for me
