Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Liverpool's injuries continue to mount up ahead of Sunday's home meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.

The Reds beat Ajax 1-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday to guarantee top spot in Group D, but Andrew Robertson and Jordan Henderson both picked up knocks.

However, Klopp confirmed after the game that the injuries sustained by both players are not serious and they are in contention to face Wolves.

Alisson Becker was also ruled out of the game with a hamstring strain, though, and he will now miss around two weeks' action.

As Liverpool attempt to return to winning ways in the top flight against Wolves this weekend, Sports Mole rounds up the Reds' latest injury and suspension news.
