Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction at Wolverhampton Wanderers (FA Cup 3rd Round)

liverpool fc anfield

Liverpool FC commence their 2019 FA Cup campaign with a visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers, a side that has been very up and down lately; and pretty much all season. Wolves, who currently sit ninth in the Premier League table, lost to 14th place Crystal Palace on Wednesday, after having beaten third place Tottenham Hotspur last Saturday.

On Boxing Day they were only able to manage a draw against 19th place Fulham, so who knows what kind of performance we’ll see from them on Monday night. This is a difficult tie to size up, but expect manager Jurgen Klopp to rotate his squad some and rest of a few of his regulars.

Of course, knowing the intensity of Klopp’s personality, and his inability to totally tone it down, expect his side to have some measure of strength.
