Liverpool face a tricky third round FA Cup tie at Wolverhampton Wanderers and would want to bounce back after their 2-1 loss to Manchester City.

That was our first defeat in the Premier League, and there should be a few changes in the Liverpool side given we had a packed schedule in recent weeks.

Jurgen Klopp should look to change things up in defence while it would be great to see the likes of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino rested.

Wolves will not be easy opposition but we should focus more on the Premier League and Champions League.

Here is our predicted line-up for the Reds.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Simon Mignolet (GK)

Alisson has been a mainstay in the side but Mignolet should replace the Brazilian in between the sticks.

Rafa Camacho (RB)

The youngster should get a chance to play on Monday given that Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner need a bit of a rest.

Dejan Lovren Liverpool

Dejan Lovren (CB)

The Croatian should keep his place in the team given we don’t have enough fit defenders.

Nat Phillips (CB)

There is no point risking Virgil van Dijk and we could see the youngster get a chance on Monday.

Alberto Moreno (LB)

The Spaniard hasn’t played much due to Andy Robertson, and he should get a chance and give Robbo a rest.

Fabinho (CM)

The Brazilian changed the game when he came on against City, and should start for us on Monday.

Naby Keita (CM)

Keita is yet to perform to his best, and hopefully, he puts up a fantastic showing against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Adam Lallana (CM)

The former Southampton man has struggled for starts this season but should get be in the XI to play Wolves.

Xherdan Shaqiri of Liverpool

Xherdan Shaqiri (RW)

The Swiss attacker could get a start on Monday and his creativity will be one of the keys in dispatching the Wolves.

Divock Origi (ST)

The hero from the Merseyside derby should get a start on Monday, and hopefully, he can score a goal too.

Daniel Sturridge (LW)

Sturridge should play out wide and support our attack, and he needs to have a great game on Monday.

Liverpool tracking 17-year-old Frenchman starring in the Ligue 1

Eduardo Camavinga

Liverpool tracking Rennes youngster Eduardo Camavinga

Eduardo Camavinga has been one of the most impressive players for Rennes this season.

The 17-year-old Frenchman has featured in 20 games for the Ligue 1 club and was one of the stars in the 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain.

The defensive midfielder has also played in the Europa League and several clubs are interested in him.

Calciomercato claims that Liverpool are one of the clubs tracking the 17-year-old. Paris Saint-Germain and Milan are also keen on the teenage sensation, according to the report.

Do Liverpool need a young midfielder?

The Reds have a fantastic side at the moment and there aren’t many weaknesses around. The only problem we could face is injuries with Fabinho and Joel Matip missing chunks of this season already.

Alisson was also out for a while but Adrian did a great job in place of the Brazilian keeper.

Camavinga could be a great player for the future and would provide more steel to our midfield.

James Milner and Adam Lallana are free agents in the summer, and it will be interesting to see what happens with the pair.

Should both leave, we would require quality replacements. Marko Grujic has impressed at Hertha Berlin but Camavinga could be a decent option too.

The Frenchman wouldn’t start regularly for us, but his growth could be boosted further under Klopp and his coaching team.

Takumi Minamino

Takumi Minamino could make his Liverpool debut against Everton in FA Cup

Liverpool are expected to sign RB Salzburg midfielder Takumi Minamino in the January window, according to the Mirror.

The Japanese star has been one of the bright spots for the Austrian team. He should be a Liverpool player on 1st Jan as long as he passes a medical (h/t Mirror).

Minamino scored against the Reds in the Champions League clash at Anfield, and he could be in line to make a huge debut too.

The Mirror claims that the 24-year-old has a chance of facing Sheffield United in a Premier League clash on 2 January.

However, it is more likely he will make his debut in the third round of the FA Cup against Everton on 5 January.

That would be an incredible game to make his debut in, and Minamino could do a decent job for us in the second half of the campaign.

Mixing it up at Anfield

Minamino can play in a withdrawn role and could give Roberto Firmino a break. The Japanese can also play on the right-wing, which would allow Mohamed Salah to be rested once in a while.

Most of the midfielders at Liverpool can play in other positions. James Milner and Jordan Henderson have played as full-backs, while Fabinho has made a few appearances in the heart of the defence.

It is that kind of versatility that would make Minamino a decent addition to the side. Hopefully, the Japanese is a Liverpool player soon and an official announcement is made soon.

Liverpool in contact with Evanilson’s representatives over possible 2020 move

Liverpool have been linked with Brazilian youngster Evanilson, according to UOL (h/t Liverpool Echo).

Liverpool have also scouted the forward all season (h/t Liverpool Echo) and it will be interesting to see what happens with him in the coming months.

Evanilson also spent a season on loan at Samorin, but has broken into the Fluminense first-team recently.

The 20-year-old still has a lot to learn in the game and it will be interesting to see if we sign him in the coming months.

Liverpool’s youth policy

Evanilson could be a smart signing for the future. The Reds have invested in their youth teams in the past and have seen a couple of those players become regulars for the first-team.

Harvey Elliott and Sepp van den Berg were two young players who were signed in the previous summer window.

The pair have also impressed in the Carabao Cup and could feature further this season. Curtis Jones has also done well and also played against Bournemouth after coming off the bench.

The Reds have made some excellent signings under Jurgen Klopp’s tenure, and Evanilson could be the next one.
