Henderson & Shaqiri to start as Klopp rotates - Predicting Liverpool’s lineup vs. Wolves

Henderson & Shaqiri to start as Klopp rotates - Predicting Liverpool’s lineup vs. Wolves

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp sees no weaknesses in Manchester City as he praised the "special" Premier League champions in the race for the title.

The unbeaten Reds top the Premier League table after 17 rounds of matches and could increase their lead when they kick off this weekend's fixtures by facing Wolverhampton Wanderers on Friday night.

Plenty of Premier League sides have demonstrated an ability to shift between a back three and a back four this season, but Nuno Espirito Santo has remained committed to a three-man defence throughout the season, the only manager in the league to have played in that way in every match so far.

It might have taken a while, but Fabinho says he finally feels in "rhythm" at Liverpool. They were previous year when they got 100 points and they stay in that mode.

"There's no sign of weakness".

"I have to respect that City are really, really, really good", he said.

Arsenal's start, Chelsea, that's all really good. In the first 15 minutes against Everton maybe, but that was 12.30pm after a Champions League game so it was an extended warm-up and there were balls flying around and missed passes.

Instead, Klopp could go once again with the subtle switches we've consistently seen, sticking closer to his regular 4-2-3-1 lineup and keeping his key players in the side.

"I hope he can play all the games but I don't know in this moment", said Klopp. It remains to be seen whether Wolves play that way against a Liverpool side whose full-backs are so unsafe going forward, however, and there's a chance they could return to the 3-4-3. The desire I see at City after being such clear champions past year, I think that's special. Tottenham had so many injury problems, the shortest break after the World Cup - I don't know how many Belgian and English players they had - no pre-season and won all the games in a hard situation. We are all the challengers. "As a group we just want to concentrate on playing as well as we can and keep on improving".
