Liverpool head into Monday’s trip to Molineux with a much-needed spring in their step.
The Reds will travel to the Midlands off the back of a vital 2-0 victory in the Champions League, as well as a rare five-day rest period.
Also, Liverpool head into a Premier League encounter without any fresh injury concerns. Roberto Firmino awaits one final fitness assessment to deem whether he is in contention to face Wolves.
During his Saturday press conference, Klopp said: “We will see. Bobby was not with us, that means he couldn’t play.
“Now we have a few more days and later on, we have the medical meeting actually after the press conference – sorry! – so they will give me more information about that. We will see, two more days, hopefully.

“[It] looks like in the moment [everybody else is fit].”
So, it would seem that Jurgen Klopp’s selection process could be pretty straight forward given what he saw during the week in Budapest.
How will Liverpool look to set up?
Another clean sheet in Europe helped settle the nerves of supporters as Liverpool booked their passage into the quarter-finals of the CL for the third time in four seasons.
As the saying goes: ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’. With that said, we expect Klopp to name an unchanged defensive quartet from the team that thwarted Leipzig.
In midfield, too, the Liverpool boss could be reluctant to tweak what felt like the most innovative and balance triumvirate since October.
With Fabinho back in his naturally suited holding role, it brought the best out of both Thiago Alcantara and Gini Wijnaldum. We expect to see the same trio utilised at Molineux on Monday.
Further afield, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane will hope their goalscoring run from midweek extends to the Premier League. Both players are without a goal from open play in Liverpool’s previous four league outings.
Finally, Diogo Jota will surely be deserving of the opportunity to showcase his talent against his former club.
The Portuguese sensation makes Liverpool much more unpredictable as an attacking force, while his ability to interchange with both Mane and Salah should hand Jota the edge in getting the nod come Monday night.
