Liverpool vs. Wolves: FA Cup Fourth Round – Match Preview

Liverpool will be desperate to bounce back from a nightmare week when they host Wolves in Saturday’s FA Cup lunchtime tie.

Liverpool were beaten at home by Swansea City in the Premier League, despite a brace from Roberto Firmino.

During the week they were eliminated from the Capital One Cup, losing 2-0 to Southampton on aggregate.

Wolves’ good run in the league came to an end as they were beaten away at Norwich on the weekend.

The game turned on a penalty call in the second half, with goalkeeper Carl Ikeme dismissed and Wolves had used all three subs!

Team news
Liverpool are expected to name a similar side to the one that beat Plymouth in the previous round.

Joe Gomez, Kevin Stewart and Ben Woodburn are likely to be given another chance.

Ikeme is banned for the visitors, meaning Harry Burgoyne is set to deputise.

Ivan Cavaleiro is a doubt for the visitors and is likely to be among the substitutes.

Liverpool (4-3-3): Karius; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Gomez, Moreno; Stewart, Lucas, Wijnaldum; Ojo, Origi, Woodburn
Wolves (4-2-3-1): Burgoyne; Iorfa, Stearman, Batth, Doherty; Price, Edwards; Costa, Mason, Weimann; Bodvarsson
