Wolves hit by injury to key forward ahead of Liverpool match

Wolves forward Diogo Jota is out of Friday’s visit of leaders Liverpool with a hamstring injury.

The 22-year-old came off in last weekend’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth and the severity of the issue is not yet known.

Wolves do not have any other injury worries as they look to break into the Premier League’s top six.

Liverpool midfielder James Milner returns to the squad for the trip.

The Reds vice-captain was left out of Sunday’s victory over Manchester United as a precaution due to a minor hamstring issue but trained this week.

Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold (foot) is not expected to be fit until Boxing Day so Nathaniel Clyne looks set to continue deputising.
