Wolves host Liverpool in Saturday's early kick-off as Premier League football returns following the international break.

Gary O'Neil's side most recently lost 3-2 at Crystal Palace and only four teams have conceded more than the Wanderers' eight goals so far after the opening four games of the season.

The Reds have made a strong start as they look to improve on a disappointing 2022/23 season and followed up their dramatic win at Newcastle with a more straightforward success over Aston Villa at Anfield.

Here's what you need to know about the fixture.

Wolves team news

21-year-old midfielder Joe Hodge is O'Neil's only injury concern heading into Saturday's game.

Changes could be made up front with young striker Fabio Silva not looking threatening. Hwang Hee-chan came off the bench to score in the 3-2 defeat at Palace before the international break and could be rewarded with a second league start of the season.

Matt Doherty scored twice on his second Wolves debut in the Carabao Cup and wore number ten for the Republic of Ireland during the international break. He'll hope to displace Nelson Semedo in the starting XI.

Virgil van Dijk's suspension for his red card at Newcastle was extended by another game during the break so the Dutchman misses out here.

Trent Alexander-Arnold pulled out of the England squad with a hamstring injury and hasn't recovered in time to take part at Molineux, which may prompt manager Jurgen Klopp to move Joe Gomez out wide and drop defensive midfielder Wataru Endo in central defence.

However, Ibrahima Konate has trained for a few days with the first-team and could return instead.

Liverpool predicted lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Gomez, Endo, Matip, Robertson; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister; Jones; Salah, Jota, Diaz.

Wolves vs Liverpool score prediction

Wolves got their first points on the board with a win at Everton but have looked at sea when playing more organised outfits. Wanderers fans will want to avoid a repeat of the Brighton game a few weeks ago that saw the clinical Seagulls cut through Wolves at will in a 4-1 victory.

Liverpool had to overcome red cards in both wins against Bournemouth and Newcastle before coasting past Aston Villa in more straightforward fashion. Despite missing Van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold, the visitors should have too much quality in the final third for Wolves to handle.

Prediction: Wolves 1-3 Liverpool
