Premier League leaders Liverpool play their final fixture of 2019 against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday.

Yet Wolves head to Anfield fresh from mounting an impressive comeback to beat champions Manchester City 3-2 at Molineux on Friday.

Match Preview

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp should have captain Jordan Henderson fit and available for Sunday's match despite the midfielder going off injured against Leicester City:

Klopp on Henderson: "Jordan is okay. He got a kick on the shin, it was bleeding afterwards. He said he could have played on!" #LFC

Klopp is likely to rotate his team to cope with the busy fixture list. He told a pre-match press conference "we have to and we will" make changes as "fresh legs have always helped us."

Fabinho, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remain on the injured list, which means squad players such as Adam Lallana, Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri could see some game time.

Klopp will also be hoping that right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold can maintain his superb form:

19 - Since the start of last season, Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold has provided 19 assists in the Premier League, more than any other player. Talent. #LEILIV https://t.co/TbQATc6ZXW

Wolves have been handed a tough fixture list over the festive period, facing Manchester City and Liverpool in less than 48 hours.

Nuno Espirito Santo will need to rotate his side carefully but can take comfort from his team's excellent away form:

It's been 111 days since Wolves last lost a game away from home in the Premier League. Away days, the Nuno Espírito Santo way. #WWFC https://t.co/2Jpltsauga

Wolves lost 2-0 at Anfield on the final day of last season but did knock the Reds out of the FA Cup for the second time in three seasons in January. They also head into the match fresh from coming from two goals down to beat 10-man Manchester City in a thriller on Friday night:

2 - Wolves are just the second team to complete a league double against a side managed by Pep Guardiola after Chelsea in 2016-17. Specialists. #WOLMCI https://t.co/yyuc7Ss7v8

Striker Raul Jimenez has nine goals and seven assists in his past 15 outings and will test a Liverpool defence that has only kept one clean sheet at Anfield all season:

Raul Jimenez is on 🔥 Absolutely clinical 👌 https://t.co/8dVu0stz23

Wolves' win over Manchester City moved them two points behind Chelsea in fourth place and will increase optimism they can qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League.

There is no doubt they have the quality to cause Liverpool problems, but they will need to be at their best if they are to become only the second team to take points off the Reds in the league in 2019-20.
