Liverpool injury news in full ahead of the clash against Wolves in the Premier League.
Liverpool return to Premier League action when they travel to Wolves on Saturday.
The Reds’ form has continued to splutter this season after exiting the FA Cup following a last-gasp 2-1 loss at Brighton last weekend.
Jurgen Klopp’s side’s form throughout the campaign has underwhelmed. In the league, they sit a dissapointing ninth and face a battle to qualify for the Champions League.
Still, Liverpool did earn a 1-0 victory at Wolves in an FA Cup third-round replay a couple of weeks ago and performances have somewhat improved of late. What’s more, the Molineux outfit have won only one of their past seven matches in all competitions.
The Reds have had their well-documented injury problems this term and will again have players missing against Wolves. Here’s a look at the latest injury situation at Anfield.

2. Virgil van Dijk - hamstring
The defender has missed the past five games. Klopp said last week that van Dijk was set to return to parts of training but he’ll need time to work towards full fitness. Potential return game: Everton (H), Mon 13 Feb or Newcastle (A), Sat 18 Feb. Photo: Clive Rose/Getty Image
3. Ibrahima Konate - hamstring
The centre-back suffered his issue in the loss at Brighton. Klopp said that Konate’s injury wasn’t too bad but Liverpool may not want to risk his issue to recur. Potential return game: Newcastle (A), Saturday 18 February.
4. Diogo Jota - calf
The striker has been absent since October. Klopp revealed last week that Jota was set to return to team training this week but will need a period to gain match fitness. Potential return game: Newcastle (A), Sat 18 Feb Photo: Andrew Powell/Liverpool FC via Getty Images
