Full Liverpool squad is set to face Wolves with Darwin and Alexander-Arnold injury updates

Liverpool will face Wolves without Trent Alexander-Arnold but will await reports on Alexis Mac Allister, Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz following their late returns from international duty.

Liverpool return to Premier League action on Saturday when they visit Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolves’ Midlands rivals Aston Villa last tasted defeat at Jurgen Klopp’s side as the Reds cruised to victory before the international break.

Liverpool seem to have come back unscathed. On deadline day, Ryan Gravenberch opted not to join up with his Netherlands Under-21 teammates to focus on a move to Merseyside. Klopp revealed in his press conference that the former Bayern Munich midfielder continued to adapt to the new environment during international matches in September.

The German manager could have a bit of a headache after the South American side only returned to training less than 24 hours before kick-off at Molineux. Alexis MacAllister played 85 minutes against Bolivia alongside Uruguay manager Marcelo Bielsa. He revealed that Darwin Nunez had a muscle problem that kept him out at half-time in the loss to Ecuador.

The former Benfica striker was one of Liverpool’s late returners but the Reds manager played down fears of a muscle problem.

Ibrahima Konate has returned to training after the previous two Reds were sidelined with muscle injuries, Klopp has revealed. However, Liverpool suffered further problems last week when Virgil van Dijk’s match was restarted after he was charged with misconduct following his red card against Newcastle United.

They will be without vice-captain Trent Alexander-Arnold for the trip to Wolves with a hamstring injury.

“He is not available,” Klopp said. “We knew that before. He didn’t practice with the team. It’s not the worst hamstring injury, but it’s a hamstring injury. We hope he can start because he’s already running, ball work early next week.”

While Thiago Alcantara is back at running back but will be sidelined with Conor Bradley out for three months after breaking his back.

Here is the expected full squad and absences for Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool:

Goalkeepers: Alisson Becker, Caoimhin Kelleher, Adrian

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip, Andy Robertson, Kostas Tsimikas, Jarell Quansah

Midfielders: Alexis MacAllister, Dominik Szoboszlai, Harvey Elliott, Curtis Jones, Stefan Bajcetic, Wataru Endo, Bobby Clark, Ryan Gravenberch

Forwards: Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Cody Gakpo, Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Ben Doak

Excludes: Virgil van Dijk, Thiago Alcantara, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Conor Bradley
