Bruno Lage has recalled midfield talisman Ruben Neves for Wolverhampton Wanderers’ clash with Liverpool today.
Neves missed Wednesday night’s 0-0 draw with Burnley after picking up his fifth yellow card of the campaign in the previous game with Norwich City.
Neves replaces Joao Moutinho as Lage sticks to his preferred 3-4-3 formation for the visit of the Reds.
Wolves have the third meanest defence in the Premier League and they’ll need to be on their mettle again today to cope with Liverpool’s attack.
Mohamed Salah (13), ex-Wolves man Diogo Jota (8) and Sadio Mane (7) are among the Premier League’s most prolific marksmen and the Reds have scored 43 goals in their opening 14 matches.
Salah, Jota – who scored the winner on his first return to Molineux in March – and Mane all start for Liverpool today.
Wolves (3-4-3): Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Neves, Dendoncker, Ait-Nouri; Traore, Jimenez, Hwang
