Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side will look to end their drought of a silverware when they begin their FA Cup campaign against the Wolverhampton Wolves on Monday. After witnessing an end to their unbeaten run in the Premier League against defending champions Manchester City, Liverpool will now look to return back to winning ways at any cost. Liverpool, despite their rise through the ranks in recent years, have failed to win any silverware since 2012, when they last won the FA Cup. Klopp will be aware of the fact and will be desperate to start their all important FA Cup on the right note. They’ll not just be hoping for a win, but a win that restores the table leaders confidence back.
Wolves are certainly enjoying their time in the top flight and have proved their ability by defeating Tottenham Hotspur out of nowhere recently. They did not start their 2019 as they would have wanted to, but they’ll surely be looking to put that behind and start the FA Cup on the right note. With Klopp opting for a B-Team, Wolves well might fancy their chances come Monday.
Liverpool – 3, Wolves – 1, Draws – 0
They last met in the FA Cup in 2017, where Wolves defeated Liverpool 2-1

Liverpool Playing11:Mignolet (GK); Moreno, Lovren, Hoever, Camacho; Lallana, Keita, Milner; Jones, Sturridge, Shaqiri
Wolves Playing11: Ruddy (GK); Vinagre, Hause, Coady, Dendoncker, Doherty; Saiss, Gibbs-White; Traore, Bonatini, Cavaleiro
It will be interesting to see how Simon Mignolet performs tomorrow, as he returns to action after quite a long time, and considering the young defence in front of him, he is expected to fetch you some points in the fantasy eleven. Xherdan Shaqiri will be the obvious key man for Liverpool as he will be their turn to man in front of the goal. For Wolves, it has to be Adama Traore and Gibbs-White, if they’re to stage an upset tomorrow.
