FA Cup: Wolves Vs Liverpool Teams news, Possible Lineups and KickOff time

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool will be in action on Monday, when they travel to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup's third round.
The Reds got unlucky with their draw, as they face a solid Premier League side at such an early stage in the competition. Oddschecker shows bookmakers have them as the 17-20 favourites to advance, while Wolves come in at 7-2. A draw carries odds of 14-5.

To catch up with live updates, BBC (UK) will provide full coverage and live-streaming options, while American fans can stream the contest via ESPN+. Kick-off is scheduled for 7:45 p.m. GMT/2:45 p.m. ET.

Jurgen Klopp to Rest few players?

Liverpool's unbeaten start to the Premier League campaign finally came to an end in their most recent outing, as defending champions Manchester City ran out to a 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium to decrease the gap at the top of the standings.

With four points separating the two, the Reds are in for a serious fight in the second half of the season. Add to that a UEFA Champions League last-16 tie with Bayern Munich, who ended the first half of the season on fire, and Liverpool suddenly have a lot on their plate.

However, Monday's fixture could be the perfect opportunity for manager Jurgen Klopp to rest some of his key men. According to sports writer Chris Bascombe, there are indications the German plans on doing just that:

The FA Cup should not be a top priority for the Reds given their strong Premier League form and desire to win that trophy. The visit to Brighton & Hove on Saturday could prove tricky, so it might be a good idea to focus on that match instead.

I expects Klopp to stick with Virgil van Dijk and Dejan Lovren at the back on Monday, but would advise a rest for VVD although,  injuries are limiting his options.

With the stunning 3:2 comeback against a strong Tottenham Hotspur, wolves will be looking to take confidence from the game.

Wolves have won just one of their past four Premier League outings and sit well behind the top teams in the race for a European ticket. They are far more likely to focus on the FA Cup and have received a major boost with the return of star attacker Diogo Jota, who is on pace to start:

Daniel Sturridge and Simon Mignolet have impressed during their limited opportunities this season, and even if Klopp rotates his squad, the Reds have a solid chance of advancing. Wolves have an excellent team, however, and this could be a cracking game.
