The Reds won 4-1 away to Everton midweek, meaning they have now scored 12 goals in their last three league outings.
Here are 10 things to know ahead of the game!
1. Wolves showing signs of promise
Wolves finished 13th in the league last season and Lage was appointed as Nuno Espirito Santo’s replacement.
The former Benfica boss has made an immediate impression in his few months in the job, steering his side to sixth in the table after 14 matches.
The Wanderers drew 0-0 at home to Burnley in midweek, meaning they have only tasted defeat once in their last nine league outings and conceded only six in the league at Molineux.
This further highlights the difficulty of Liverpool’s task on Saturday.
2. Hwang a rumoured Reds target
The South Korean joined Wolves on loan from RB Leipzig back in the summer and he has scored four goals in nine league starts to date.
Hwang can thrive both on the left and in a central attacking role – he scored and assisted against Liverpool for Salzburg in 2019/20 – meaning he could be a shrewd acquisition.
Wolves have an option to sign him permanently in the summer, so the Reds would have to act fast next month for Hwang, who has four goals in 11 league outings.
3. How could Wolves line-up?
Midweek commitments mean Wolves haven’t been afforded their usual luxury of a week without playing, with no European football for them this season.
While that could mean Lage has to make a few changes, their starting lineup should be similar to the one that faced Burnley.
Jose Sa has shone between the sticks since arriving from Olympiakos, while a back-three of Max Kilman, Conor Coady and Romain Saiss also looks nailed-on.
Kilman has been particularly impressive this season and Gareth Southgate is rumoured to be eyeing him up as a future England player.
Meanwhile, the likes of Ruben Neves, Hwang and Raul Jimenez are all expected to feature, with reported Liverpool target Adama Traore potentially starting, too.
Possible Wolves XI: Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Neves, Mourinho; Ait-Nouri; Trincao, Hwang, Jimenez.
4. Who’s out for Liverpool?
Miraculously, Liverpool came through the Goodison Park derby without any new injuries.
5. Predicting the Reds’ XI
There could be a few tweaks after the midweek action, though.
6. Liverpool strong at Molineux
Klopp’s men head into Saturday’s fixture with a strong recent record away to Wolves, in what can be a sticky fixture for top teams.
Last season, former Wolves man Jota earned the Reds a gritty 1-0 victory and they won 2-1 in dramatic fashion in the title-winning 2019/20 campaign, thanks to Firmino’s late strike.
Liverpool’s last loss in the league against Wanderers came way back in December 2010 at Anfield, during the end days of a certain Roy Hodgson.
7. Don’t be expecting 7 or 8 changes!
The manager knows a time will come later this month when a handful of changes to his XI may be needed but don’t be expecting an overhaul of the side from the win at Everton on Saturday:
“Players’ welfare is of course very important but we are used to a tough schedule, the boys are used to a tough schedule obviously.
“I don’t think we have to make now plenty of changes between the games now, at least not at the start of December.
“We have to see how it will be in the middle or the end of December.
“We changed quite a lot in the last few weeks. So we will see what we do exactly, I didn’t make the line-up yet, but I wouldn’t expect now seven or eight changes.”
8. Did You Know?
Injuries to the latter have often limited their playing time together, but the statistics sum up how imperious they are as a duo.
Liverpool have won 13 and drawn one of the 14 games they have both started in, with 36 goals scored and just six conceded in that time.
9. Kavanagh in the spotlight
Chris Kavanagh is in charge of Saturday’s match, while Jon Moss is on VAR duty.
He was the referee for the 2-0 defeat at home to Everton, however, awarding the Blues a penalty on a grim night for the Reds.
This is Kavanagh’s first Liverpool game of the season – here’s hoping controversy is avoided!
10. Not on the telly again!
This is another Saturday 3pm outing for Liverpool, meaning it isn’t live on UK television.
Don’t worry, though, because TIA’s matchday live blog is the best place to follow the action, with Joanna Durkan keeping you company from 2.15pm.
