Jurgen Klopp said on Friday that Andrew Robertson (calf) and Jordan Henderson (knee) “should be fine” after they picked up knocks in midweek, while Mohamed Salah (head) is expected to recover after training in the run-up to Sunday’s game.

There was again no update on Adam Lallana, who hasn’t featured since Gameweek 31, while there was no mention of Divock Origi’s condition following the Belgian striker’s withdrawal on Tuesday.

Origi himself said that he was only suffering from cramp after the win over Barcelona so he is expected to recover for the visit of Wolves and could potentially lead the line again after three goals over the last seven days.

Daniel Sturridge, who was only a substitute against Barcelona, is a rested alternative in the three-man attack, with Xherdan Shaqiri an option to play on the right flank should Salah be moved inside.

Georginio Wijnaldum will be optimistic of a start after coming off the bench to score twice against the Catalan giants and the Dutchman could take Fabinho’s place at the base of the midfield three or play to the left of the Brazilian as he did against Newcastle and Barcelona.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is another option in the engine room but, having had just 17 minutes of senior football this season, a start against Wolves is a big ask.

Dejan Lovren has started the last two league games at centre-half and will tussle with Joel Matip for a place alongside Virgil van Dijk.

Joe Gomez is another option in that position but looks unlikely to displace the in-form Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back.

James Milner will be on standby to fill in for Robertson at left-back should the Scotland international fail to recover, with Alberto Moreno out in the cold.
