Three Wolves players Liverpool need to stop at Anfield

Liverpool host Wolves at Anfield on Sunday as the Reds look to continue their long unbeaten run at home.

Jurgen Klopp’s side face a tough test against a high-flying Wolves side.

Here are three players Liverpool must stop in order to avoid an upset:

Adama Traore

The former Barcelona man is finally finding his feet in the Premier League. So far this season the 23-year-old has scored four goals and provided six assists for Wolves.

His pace is the best in England and one lapse in concentration means he is through on goal. Liverpool need to be especially careful due to the high defensive line we play, otherwise Traore could have a field day at Anfield.

Diogo Jota has been in fine form for Wolves, especially of late. The 23-year-old Portuguese midfielder has scored nine goals and provided five goals in all competitions. Earlier this month he scored an impressive hat-trick against Turkish side Besiktas. Within 13 minutes of coming onto the pitch he had scored three goals and tipped the game on his head.

He will likely start from the left wing and provide Trent Alexander-Arnold with a stiff test of his defensive abilities.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s side rely heavily on the goals of 28-year-old striker Raul Jimenez. More often not he is the man to fire them to victory with his prolific form in front of goal. So far this season the Mexican international has scored 16 goals in all competitions for Wolves.

His link up play with the two other players mentioned in this article has been phenomenal. They are the reason Wolves are doing so well this season. Liverpool must shut this down or Jimenez will score goals at Anfield on Sunday.
