Confirmed Teams: Klopp makes 9 changes; 'Amazing' academy sensation starts; midfielder dropped

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has made 9 changes for today's FA Cup clash with Wolves.

FULL TEAM: Karius, Randall, Gomez, Klavan, Moreno, Lucas, Ejaria, Wijnaldum, Woodburn, Firmino, Origi #LIVWOL

SUBS: Mignolet, Milner, Stewart, Can, Wilson, Coutinho, Sturridge

* Woodburn and Ejaria get another chance to impress, but there's no place in the squad for Alexander-Arnold.

* For some reason, Kevin Stewart is ignored again. This is the ideal game for the midfielder to start, but he's left on the bench.

* Matip and Lovren get the day off, so Klavan and Gomez get another chance to impress at the back.

* The bench is fairly strong, with first-teamers like Milner, Mignolet, Can, Coutinho, and Sturridge making up the numbers.

* Karius continues in goal, which is deserved after his impressive performance against Southampton.

* Ex-Red Conor Coady starts for Wolves.

Probable formation:

-------------- Karius
Randall -- Gomez -- Klavan ---- Moreno
---- Ejaria -- Lucas -- Wijnaldum
-- Woodburn - Firmino - Origi

Liverpool can't lose three home games in a row...right?

* Woodburn: Hailed as 'absolutely amazing' by Ian Rush.
