Wolverhampton Wanderers v Liverpool

7th January 2019, 12:20 by Warren Ashurst

Wolves will aim to knock Liverpool out of the FA Cup for the second time in three seasons, when the sides meet at Molineux on Monday.

As a Championship club, Wanderers went to Anfield in January 2017 and beat the Reds 2-1 on their own ground, but that is Wolves' only win over Liverpool in their last five meetings.

The two clubs met in the Premier League at Molineux just two weeks ago, when Jurgen Klopp's men ran out 2-0 winners thanks to goals from Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.

Wolves have been boosted by the news that Diogo Jota is ready to return to the squad. Nuno Espirito Santo revealed in his press conference that the Portuguese forward joined up with the rest of the squad for Friday's training session, following a hamstring injury.

The Wolves boss though will make late check on midfielder Romain Saiss, who went off with a knee issue in Wednesday's home defeat to Crystal Palace, before naming his starting XI.

As for the visitors, Klopp looks set to make several changes to the side that lost 2-1 at Manchester City, to keep things fresh for the upcoming League and European fixtures.

Among those expected to start at Molineux are Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, Naby Keita, Adam Lallana and Alberto Moreno, while Simon Mignolet is likely to replace Alisson between the posts.
