Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Liverpool match preview
Will Liverpool’s, somewhat unexpected, exceptional start to the season continue?
Despite a turbulent summer, Jürgen Klopp’s team remain unbeaten and made it three wins on the spin last time out, demolishing Aston Villa 3-0 at Anfield.
Dominik Szoboszlai breaking the deadlock early with a stunning strike, before an unfortunate own goal and then Mohammed Salah’s back-post clincher secured a routine victory.
Between now and the October international break, the Reds face three of last season’s top eight, taking on West Ham, Spurs and Brighton, while the Europa League also gets going as they visit LASK on Thursday.
So, will Liverpool kick off a busy and challenging month with a victory in the Black Country?
Wolverhampton Wanderers meantime were beaten in their last outing, going down 3-2 at Crystal Palace, with Hwang Hee-chan and Matheus Cunha on target in vain at Selhurst Park.
That made it three defeats out of four for Gary O’Neil’s team, with their only victory, so far, coming when they visited Merseyside last month; Saša Kalajdžić's late header downing Everton at Goodison.
Looking ahead to this one, Wolves did demolished Liverpool 3-0 at Molineux back in February, although they haven’t won back-to-back home fixtures against the Reds since 1981.
So, will the visitors pick up all three points in this Saturday lunchtime encounter?

Liverpool team news
Liverpool’s team is uncertain, given that Alisson, Alexis Mac Allister, Luis Díaz and Darwin Núñez were all in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying action little over 96 hours ago half way around the world.
They’re also faced with a bit of a defensive injury crisis, given that Trent Alexander-Arnold is injured and Virgil van Dijk is suspended, having been handed a two-game ban for his red card at St James’ Park.
With Ibrahima Konaté also a doubt, could 20 year old Jarell Quansah, who came on during the win over Villa, be in line for a start?
Elsewhere, the Saudi transfer window is now closed and Mohammed Salah is still a Liverpool player, much to the relief of all supporters, so the Egyptian will be seeking to add to his five career goals against Wolves.
Having turned down a call-up from the Netherlands U21s, Ryan Gravenberch is set to make his Liverpool debut here, possibly as a substitute.
Predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Gomez, Quansah, Matip, Robertson; Endō, Mac Allister, Szoboszlai; Salah, Jota, Gakpo.
