After an impressive Champions League performance against Leipzig, Liverpool travel to the Molineux Stadium on Monday night where they will take on 13th placed Wolves.
The last time the two sides came up against each other was in December 2020 when fans returned to Anfield for the first time in over eight months. What a performance they were greeted to as well! A 4-0 convincing win made the night of so many Reds.
In some ways, Jurgen Klopp’s men’s recent win in the second leg against Leipzig was reminiscent of the clash against Wolves in December. I say this because of the morale boost it has given all of us.

The past three months have been difficult for this Liverpool side, winning only six of our 14 games this calendar year so far. Hopefully, the win against Leipzig which secured our spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League marks the turn of our fortunes for the rest of the season.
Wolves manager, Nuno Esperito Santo, has already acknowledged that Liverpool’s form is a classic case of mere ups and downs and the side cannot be disregarded for the patch.
As quoted by Anfield Watch, he said: “The quality, the talent and the achievements that the club and Jurgen have done is amazing and we’re going to face a very talented squad, a very good football team who have a fantastic approach and idea on the game.”
Now, let’s move on to the lineup I’d like to see tomorrow night.
Perhaps, the easiest choice for Jurgen Klopp to make on a weekly basis. Following the unfortunate demise of his father, Alisson has started all three of Liverpool’s most recent games.
A clean-sheet against Leipzig will give him the confidence boost he needs going into Monday’s game. In a game where he made a couple of necessary saves in the first half, Liverpool are indebted to him for saving the side on numerous occasions across the two legs.
If Alisson keeps a clean-sheet against Wolves on Monday, it would be his first in the Premier League since the 0-0 draw against Manchester United in mid-January.
