Liverpool vs. Wolves live score, updates, highlights and lineups as Hwang levels four-goal game

Quick Bit: Defending champions Liverpool kick off this season’s FA Cup campaign with a third-round tie against Wolves at Anfield. Follow all the action live.

Full Story:

Liverpool begin the defence of their FA Cup crown when they take on Wolves at Anfield in the competition’s third round.

But, rather than the start of a possible route to silverware, this game is more about the Reds attempting to somehow get back to their best after they suffered yet another shock defeat in a season packed with them at Brentford last time out.

That won’t be easy against a Wolves outfit who have started to show improvement under new boss Julen Lopetegui.

However, it remains to be seen how seriously the Spaniard takes this tournament given that Premier League survival is the clear priority.

Liverpool vs. Wolves predicted lineups

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is still without attacking duo Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota through injury but Roberto Firmino could make his comeback from a hamstring injury and James Milner may recover in time from a thigh problem.

Virgil van Dijk is out with a hamstring injury sustained against Brentford but Jordan Henderson is available again after sitting out that debacle for the Reds with concussion.

New signing Cody Gakpo‘s availability will depend on whether he has received clearance to play following his move from Dutch side PSV, but he is expected to be in the squad.

Liverpool predicted lineup (4-3-3): Alisson (GK) — Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Matip, Robertson — Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago — Salah, Carvalho, Nunez

Chiquinhoand Sasa Kalajdzic are both long-term absentees for Wolves with knee injuries, and Lopetegui will be hoping he has no new concerns following his team’s Premier League fixture at Aston Villa on Wednesday.

On-loan Atletico Madrid forward Matheus Cunha trained with the squad for the first time on Sunday but Pedro Neto is out with an ankle injury.

Wolves predicted lineup (4-3-3): Sa (GK) — Semedo, Collins, Kilman, Bueno — Nunes, Neves, Moutinho — Cunha, Costa, Podence
