Klopp hopes momentum cotinues to build

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp hopes his squad can pick up the momentum they had before the international break.

“We would’ve loved to have carried on after the Aston Villa game, which was a really good game,” Klopp told reporters on Friday.

“I think 30-odd hours ago, Alexis Mac Allister played in Bolivia, landed yesterday morning at four o’clock. So, let’s see where we can pick up.”

Liverpool bolstered their squad in the close season, adding Argentina’s Mac Allister, Hungary’s Dominik Szoboszlai and Japan international Wataru Endo after losing midfield stalwarts Jordan Henderson and Fabinho to Saudi Arabia.

“The quality of the players, I’m really, really happy, the potential we have is really good,” Klopp said. “And I love working with them, they are open. It’s nice for a manager as well, to know they didn’t hear it already 500 times before, that some messages are new.

“(This is) year one of a new team, we want to become a new team and not a replica of the other team and that is what we’re working on.”


‘Liverpool in a real good place’

Wolves boss Gary O’Neil expects Liverpool to be title challengers again.

Jurgen Klopp’s side finished fifth last season, 22 points behind champions Manchester City, and were never in the title race. But after three wins from their opening four matches O’Neil believes Klopp will have Liverpool in the hunt for the Premier League this term.

He said: “I’ll be very surprised if they’re not right at the top this year. Of course, as with most people, Man City will be the favourites I’m sure but Liverpool have added a lot of really good players in the summer.

“I would expect them to improve significantly on the points tally they achieved last season. They’ve got 10 points from four games with some difficult fixtures in there as well.

“Managing to win at Newcastle when you’re down to 10 men is an incredible effort. I know how tough it is, as everyone does, to go away to Newcastle and get a result with 11.

“So to be 1-0 down and be as good as they were with 10 men shows that they’re in a real good place.”

Score prediction

Liverpool are flying high and full of confidence, and will know being first up in the weekend running order means they can go top of the league with victory at Molineux. Wolves have impressed in fits and starts, and good for a goal in any game, but it will be a tall order to stop this rampant Reds team.

Liverpool to win, 3-1.


Doyle returns

Joe Hodge remains a doubt for Wolves with a hamstring problem.

Tommy Doyle should be available after missing the defeat at Crystal Palace with a knee issue.


Debut for Gravenberch?

Liverpool will this afternoon be without Trent Alexander-Arnold. Deadline day signing Ryan Gravenberch, meanwhile, will be eligible to make his debut but is most likely to be named on the bench.

Jurgen Klopp, who has batted back suggestions he wants the Germany job during the international break, has also been without Thiago Alcantara for several months ahead of his potential return when Premier League action resumes.

One player certainly out of the lunchtime trip to Molineux is Virgil van Dijk after his suspension was lengthened to two games for improper conduct following his red card at Newcastle.

Liverpool earned a comfortable 3-0 win over Aston Villa before the break and have both Darwin Nunez and Ibrahima Konate fit.
