The Reds Probable Lineup for Wolves Clash, with South American Trio Rested

Liverpool has enjoyed a strong start to the new season, but they face a challenging early kick-off away game following an international break. This scheduling is likely to influence Jurgen Klopp’s selection decisions, especially regarding his South American players who have endured demanding travel.

Goalkeeper Alisson, who had to travel extensively to join the Brazil squad, is expected to feature in the lineup, as Klopp usually makes an exception for his goalkeeper. Ederson’s selection by the national team during the recent break further increases Alisson’s chances of playing.

In defense, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s recovery from a minor hamstring injury was hoped for, but his absence from training suggests Joe Gomez may be the preferred choice at right-back. Ibrahima Konate is likely to partner Joel Matip at center-back in the absence of the suspended Virgil van Dijk, while Andy Robertson remains the top choice at left-back.

In midfield, Alexis Mac Allister’s impressive performances for Argentina may earn him a spot on the bench, allowing an opportunity for Wataru Endo, who played closer to home in Europe during the international break. Dominik Szoboszlai and Curtis Jones are expected to partner him after their strong showings against Aston Villa.

As for the forward line, Darwin Nunez’s muscle trouble with Uruguay may lead to a cautious approach, and Luis Diaz’s extensive travel could also impact his readiness. Therefore, Cody Gakpo might lead the attack, with Diogo Jota on the left flank, and the indispensable Mohamed Salah also involved in the lineup.
