Julen Lopetegui insists Wolves have no excuses at Liverpool – despite his frustration at the schedule.
The manager is unhappy the hosts have had two more days to prepare for Saturday’s FA Cup third round clash at Anfield.
“They have had five days, I prefer not to repeat it. We have to be ready. Despite the situation we have to prepare for the cup in the best way we can,” he said.
“It’s very important but Liverpool have had two days more to prepare and rest.
“We have another match in three days [after] with the Carabao Cup. We have to be able to do a good match against one of the best teams in the world.
“It’s not our responsibility, we have to play, I have commented it is different in the league. In the cup you don’t have a second chance, it’s not balanced but it’s not our responsibility.
“Maybe we can work normally because a lot of players have to recuperate but tomorrow we will be ready to try to beat one of the best teams in the world. They have an incredible squad. It’ll be a good challenge for us.”
Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto remain out for Wolves with Lopetegui expected to make changes and new striker Matheus Cunha is in the running to start.
No new signings are expected before the Anfield trip and skipper Ruben Neves has again been linked with Barcelona, but Lopetegui insists his only concern is reinforcements.
“We are not thinking about the possibility about moving out players, we are thinking about the possibility of bringing them in,” he said.
“Ask me 100 times, it’s the same. Our focus is on the match tomorrow.”
