The Reds have named a heavily altered first 11 with a strong bench to call upon if needed in the fourth-round clash at Anfield on Saturday afternoon

Jurgen Klopp has made nine changes to Liverpool’s starting XI for the FA Cup hosting of Wolves, with only Roberto Firmino and Loris Karius retained from the midweek defeat to Southampton. 

The Reds surrendered the opportunity of a Wembley date at Anfield on Wednesday, crashing out of the League Cup at the semi-final stage 2-0 on aggregate.

They will want to progress in this tournament, but Klopp has a balancing act in terms of selection with a decisive league game against Chelsea lying in wait on Tuesday. 

To that end, he has named a heavily altered first 11 with a strong bench to call upon if needed.
