Diogo Jota was dropped to the bench for Liverpool’s Premier League clash with his former club Wolves.

The Portuguese has scored nine goals in just 15 appearances for the Reds since making a £45million move from Molineux in September.

However, having started the crucial midweek Champions League win over Ajax, Jota was left out as Roberto Firmino returned to form a familiar front three alongside Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

The 24-year-old recently became the first Liverpool player in history to score in his first four top-flight home appearances for the club and could still extend that run into a fifth game should he score from the bench.

Elsewhere, Caoimhin Kelleher retained his place in goal after impressing the absence of Alisson on Tuesday, seeing off the challenge of previous second-choice Adrian once more.

Jurgen Klopp’s options were also boosted by the return of Naby Keita and Trent Alexander-Arnold from injury, the pair claiming a place on the bench.

As for Wolves, they made just one change from their last Premier League outing – a win at Arsenal – as the injured Raul Jimenez was replaced by Ruben Neves.
