Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Liverpool: Preview, Team News, and Ways to WatchWolves vs Liverpool | Tuesday, January 17th |FA Cup | Molineux Stadium7:45PM BST / 2:45PM EST After putting up one of their very worst displays in recent memory in Saturday’s 0-3 loss to Brighton, Liverpool get a chance to put things somewhat right, as they look to advance in the FA Cup through a Wolverhampton replay they probably didn’t earn. Wolves haven’t had a stellar season thus far, as they sit 16th, two points clear of the relegation zone, and haven’t fared much better since replacing Bruno Lage with Julen Lopetegui, winning only one of their last five, but they could reasonably argue they deserved to win at Anfield, as a faulty camera failed to overturn the linesman’s offside call on what would have been their game winner on that occasion.
Wolves vs Liverpool: FA Cup previewThe Premier League duo shared four goals in the first third-round clash, which was not without controversy as Liverpool arguably benefited from two VAR calls, both in scoring and then seeing a Wolves winner ruled out. Wolves slogged past West Ham at the weekend to move out of the relegation zone, while Liverpool were humbled 3-0 by Brighton. These, at least judging by recent form, are two teams going in the opposite direction. Date, kick-off time and venueWolves vs Liverpool is scheduled for a 7. 45pm GMT kick-off today, Tuesday, January 17, 2023. The match will take place at Molineux.

Wolves vs Liverpool team newsWolves are hoping to have Diego Costa fit, with the striker set to undergo a late fitness test. Sasa Kalajdzic (knee), Boubacar Traore (groin) and Pedro Neto (ankle) are out. Darwin Nunez is “very close” to a return after a small injury but Liverpool look set to start with Mohamed Salah and Cody Gakpo up front.
Wolves will be missing Pedro Neto and Boubacar Traore through injury, while Diego Costa will be a game day decision, but top scorer Daniel Podence, star striker Raúl Jiménez and midfield maestro Rúben Neves should all be available. Projected Liverpool Lineup (4-3-3) Kelleher; Milner, Gomez, Konaté, Tsimikas; Keïta, Jones, Elliott; Carvalho, Gakpo, Salah For the Reds, domestic cup keeper Caomhin Kelleher was suprisingly left out last time around, as Jürgen Klopp rolled out a full-strength side, but could be back between the sticks tomorrow, and rotation through the XI wouldn’t be amiss, particularly with Chelsea coming to town on Saturday. At the back, Trent Alexander-Arnold needs his minutes managed and should get a rest, but with Calvin Ramsay mysteriously missing, Joe Gomez or James Milner will have to deputise at right-back. Ibrahima Konaté, Joël Matip and Nat Phillips make up the options in the centre, while Kostas Tsimikas should get a run-out at left-back.
Thiago Alcantara featured behind Salah and Gakpo in the defeat at Brighton, a change from the Reds' typically favoured 4-3-3 system, so Jurgen Klopp may mix things up again with Fabio Carvalho in contention. James Milner and Stefan Bajcetic are back in training but Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, Arthur Melo and Luis Diaz remain absent. REUTERSWolves vs Liverpool predictionThe first meeting was a superb cup tie and I can see more of the same at Molineux. Wolves are improving and Liverpool are struggling, so we could see another goalfest and another big-name scalp. Wolves to progress, winning 2-1.
