Midfielder Adam Lallana replaced Naby Keita as Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made just one change for the visit of Wolves.
Klopp took no chances against a side who less than 48 hours ago had beaten Manchester City, resting just the Guinea international after his back-to-back starts in the Club World Cup final and the Boxing Day thrashing of Leicester.
Youngster Harvey Elliott was named on the bench after Xherdan Shaqiri was absent through illness.
Wolves made four changes, leaving out key men Matt Doherty, Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez and Romain Saiss and bringing in Ryan Bennett, Maximilian Kilman, Ruben Vinagre and Pedro Neto.
Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Lallana, Mane, Salah, Firmino.
Subs: Adrian, Williams, Milner, Keita, Elliott, Jones, Origi.
Wolves XI: Patricio, Dendoncker, Coady, Bennett, Kilman, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Neto, Vinagre, Jota.
Subs: Ruddy, Doherty, Jimenez, Cutrone, Saiss, Traore, Otasowie.
