Where: Molineux Stadium
Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool will lock horns for the third time this season on Saturday in the Premier League.
It’s been a complicated season for Wolverhampton Wanderers up to this point but now that they have Julen Lopetegui at the helm, the clouds are seemingly starting to clear. In addition to their new signings, J-Lo seems to have brought back a feeling of togetherness in the Black Country. The priority, of course, is ensuring that the club can slowly but surely edge themselves away from the danger zone in the weeks ahead.
After holding Aston Villa to a point in the league, Wolves were unlucky not to beat Liverpool in their FA Cup third round tie. They wound up losing the replay 1-0 but in the meantime, they beat West Ham after being knocked out of the League Cup on penalties by Nottingham Forest. In their most recent outing on January 22nd, they were no match for the reigning champions as they lost 3-0 to Manchester City.
This has been a campaign to forget for Liverpool Football Club up to this point. As is always the case, there’s still plenty of time for that to be rectified – but the initial signs aren’t great. Jurgen Klopp is still the man tasked with trying to turn things around but something tells us that if the negative headlines and results keep on going, there could come a point where he contemplates his future once the summer arrives.
In the wake of a defeat to Brentford, the Reds were fortunate to come away with a 2-2 draw from their cup tie with Wolves. They went on to beat them in the replay but in the midst of all that, they lost two games to Brighton in the space of a fortnight – one in the league, and one in the fourth round of the FA Cup. Oh, and they also played out a pretty dreadful 0-0 draw with Chelsea on January 21st.
We expect to see Liverpool come out firing in order to silence the Molineux crowd as they did just a matter of weeks ago. They’ll go ahead early on, and yet while they will probably go into half time with a 1-0 advantage, it isn’t going to be the kind of comfortable lead they desire.
Wolves will start to get on the ball in the second half with the key being to avoid any silly counters from the boys from Merseyside. We expect they’ll do so, eventually grabbing a crucial equaliser, ensuring that both teams share the spoils after an entertaining afternoon of action.
Our tips (all taken from bet365): Liverpool/Draw (HT/FT) at 14/1 + under 2.5 goals at 1/1[geosnippet id=3620]
