Klopp reckons only Man City can stop Man City regaining the title

In the video, Mourinho is seen greeting Klopp before the Liverpool boss took part in a pre-match interview with host broadcaster Sky Sports, with the pair then going on to discuss Virgil van Dijk and even the weather.

Wolves have already beaten Chelsea here, drawn with Manchester City and were eventually defeated by Spurs (2-3) they also got a 1-1 draw at the Emirates so they will have no fear welcoming the league leaders. It happens, everyone makes mistakes.

Wolves' upturn in fortunes owes much to the improvement of Raul Jimenez, who has often provided useful assists for onrushing runners, but now is starting to find the net himself.

Thankfully there are no fresh injury concerns, meaning Klopp has near enough the same squad as against Man United at his disposal.

However, midfielder James Milner insists they will not get complacent. Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold are still expected to miss out.

Klopp's rotation policy is likely to be in operation again and there are several options available to bring in.

Nathaniel Clyne could continue at right-back against Wolves on Friday after a terrific performance against United but Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remain on the sidelines.

The likes of Alberto Moreno, Adam Lallana, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi all provide further alternatives. That's why we should concentrate on every game and not take any result for granted.

The messages continually coming from the dressing room state that the players are not looking any further ahead than their next game. Fabinho can play at centre-half as well so that's good. "We know how hard it is".

Gini Wijnaldum-rested for a full game only once all season-could be one of the main beneficiaries of a chance to recharge before huge games with Arsenal and Man City.

I will be backing Liverpool to edge this in a high scoring game, backing Liverpool/Yes in the Match Odds and Both teams to Score market at anything better than [3.8]. Naby Keita could drop back to the bench, meaning Sadio Mane will play on the left.

Liverpool can establish a four-point lead at the top of the Premier League on Friday when they visit Wolverhampton Wanderers. We are all the challengers.

In defence, Milner could replace Clyne with it potentially a big ask for the latter to start successive games so quickly after returning.
