Here is Liverpool Strongest Lineup That Should Start Against Wolverhampton

Liverpool won the reverse fixture at Anfield back in December with, Mohamed Salah, Joel Matip, Georginio Wijnaldum and Nelson Semedo own goal giving the Reds a 4-0 victory.

Wolves haven't had a great season either but are gradually finding form, with Nuno Espirito Santo's side losing only once in their last seven league matches winning three and drawing three. The goalless draw with Aston Villa is their most recent

Nat Phillips (CB)

The Academy graduate his beginning to show great improvement in recent weeks. He put in another solid performance against Leipzig and should keep his place. 

Ozan Kabak (CB)

Andy Robertson (LB) 

The Scotland international form is well below the level he has set since the last three seasons. He has registered any assists this year

2. Midfielders

Thiago (CM) 

The Spaniard was exceptional against Leipzig putting in one of his best performance since joining Liverpool in the summer. He would keep his place. 

Fabinho (DM)

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

3. Forwards

Mohamed Salah (RW) 

The Egyptian form has dropped in recent weeks but Liverpool's main source of getting goals. He was at fault for Liverpool's loss to Fulham in their last time out in the league. He scored against Leipzig in the Champions League and will look to continue the form.

Diogo Jota took the place of Roberto Firmino against Leipzig in the Champions League and assisted Mohamed Salah for the opener. He should keep his place.

Sadio Mane (LW)
