LIVERPOOL FC vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS FC Match Preview & Analysis

Liverpool have been one of the worst hit teams this season where injuries and Coronavirus are concerned, with multiple players missing out for a number of weeks.

Despite this, the Reds will still be reasonably pleased with their start to the season, especially sitting 2nd going into the weekend, level on points with Tottenham in 1st.

Their attacking players have been on top form, particularly Diogo Jota, signed from their opponents this weekend in the summer. 

The biggest compliment one can pay him is that manager Klopp has been forced to change his tried and tested forward line to fit him in.

Wolves themselves are a decent side, who are always one of the toughest opponents in the league and one that no side relishes facing.

Although their results have been mixed, they need no motivation when it comes to the big sides, having taken plenty of points from matches against the top teams since their promotion a couple of years ago.

Form Guide (all comps): DWLDW

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Results have been great despite missing players

     Alexander-Arnold and Naby Keita are in contention to play

Reasons to be fearful:

     Tough run of fixtures coming up

     Wolves are famously difficult to play against

Liverpool will be able to welcome back fans for the first time since being crowned Premier League champions this weekend.

2000 Reds fans will have the chance to see their side take on a tough Wolves team who often save their best performances for the biggest clubs, as Arsenal found out last weekend.

Liverpool enter this weekend with only goal difference separating them and Tottenham at the top of the table, though have only won two of their last five matches in all competitions.

They struggled to finish the game off against Brighton last weekend, with a defeat against Atalanta coming before that in the Champions League.

The return of Trent Alexander-Arnold would be a huge boost for the Champions, although Allison, Gomez, Milner, Thiago and of course Van Dijk will remain absent.

Star Man – Diogo Jota

Is in terrific form – already has nine goals for his new side since joining in the summer.

Reasons to be cheerful

     Results against the big sides are positive

     Best start to a campaign since 1979-80

Reasons to be fearful 

     Liverpool’s unbeaten home record stands at 64 games

     Raul Jimenez will be missing after head injury

Wolves so often save their best performances for the big sides.

Since returning to the Premier League a few seasons ago, they’ve beaten many of the big clubs up and down the country and are currently enjoying their best start to a Premier League season in over 40 years.

They will have to make do without Raul Jimenez, who is still recovering after an awful head injury suffered in the win over Arsenal last weekend. 

Wolves are already a top striker down after losing Diogo Jota to their opponents in the summer, but will now have to manage without their best player for this one. Goals have been hard to come by, with only the bottom three scoring fewer.

It was always going to be a tough ask to end Liverpool’s 64 match unbeaten run, but to do so without such a key player will make it that much harder.

Star Man – Neto

Now has two goals in his last two appearances, he will need to keep this up in the absence of Jimenez

LIVERPOOL FC vs WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS FC Winning Prediction

     Should be a close match

     Both sides will miss their absent players

     Could be settled by the odd goal

Liverpool’s unbeaten home run will come to an end at some point, but will Wolves be the team to do it?

Perhaps with a fully fit and firing team at their disposal, but this weekend it is hard to see them doing so.

Even with so many players missing, Liverpool just have a habit of getting the results the need at the moment.

You wouldn’t bet against them doing the same here.
