Wolves team news: Important duo could return vs Liverpool, wideman ruled out

Wolverhampton Wanderers are due to play against Liverpool in a Premier League clash at Molineux on Thursday, in what will be a difficult encounter for the home side.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will be the underdogs against Jurgen Klopp’s side but will nevertheless aim for the best.

Wolves do have somewhat of a reputation when it comes to causing upsets. They also gave Liverpool a serious run for their money at Anfield last month before narrowly losing the game 1-0.

Nuno will have to make do without the services of Ruben Vinagre, according to BBC.

The report added that Diogo Jota could be set to potentially return to action after having suffered a dead leg, whilst Willy Boly is also closing in on a first-team return after having experienced an ankle problem.

Wolves face a difficult assignment.

The current Liverpool side is arguably one of the best in history and have taken 91 out of the last 93 points that have been available to them.

The Reds have also not lost an away league game against Wolves since August 1981.

Wolves however will be under less pressure to get a positive result from the game and this could work to their advantage.

They may also benefit from a seemingly now complacent Liverpool side who have more or less now certainly won the league.

Liverpool will also face a unique test against Wolves. They will be up against a side which has earned 18 points from losing positions in the league, seven more than any other side from the top-flight.
