Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool may face a banana peel fixture while preparing to play against the Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.
Liverpool have now won four games after suffering a controversial defeat to West Ham in early November. This is the only defeat of the season so far.
The Reds scored incredible points in the run, scoring four out of four games, including the dismantling of Arsenal and Everton 4-0 and 4-1 respectively.
Liverpool have welcomed Joe Gomez and Naby Keita for training, but the pair isn’t ready for Saturday’s selection.
Already at the top of the Champions League group, Klopp does not run the risk of losing points against wolves in a very tight title race, but on a busy Christmas schedule in a mid-week match against AC Milan. It is expected to rest some key players before.
So how do you align them?
Teams that won the Merseyside Derby in the middle of the week will have a total of zero changes.
Matip keeps his spot in the back four alongside Virgil van Dijk before Ibrahima Conate, who is likely to be the only real choice headache for Klopp.
Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson continue their advanced midfield role while Fabinho continues to berth behind them.
All regular front 3s hold that position. And that won’t change until Roberto Firmino recovers from his injury.
Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané are relied on again to score Liverpool’s goal
Liverpool is currently two points away from the top spot, but knows they can’t afford a slip-up to get into this important and unpredictable section of the season.
If Liverpool lose the match, they will stay where they are, but could drop 5 points from the top spot and reduce the top 4 buffers to just 5 points.
