Top of the table and fresh off that superb win over Manchester United which lead to the sacking of Jose Mourinho, Liverpool have certainly underlined their status as title contenders. Up next for Klopp and his team is a trip to Molineux to take on a Wolves outfit that have bounced back from a five-match winless run in sensational fashion with three consecutive victories. Form Labs return with their betting preview and tips for the game and as ever FansBet bring you some more value with our selection of enhanced odds for the game.
Wolves Looking For A Fourth Consecutive Win
Wolves have won their last three to recover well from a spell of poor form, though as impressive as the victory over Chelsea was, the other two came over Newcastle – hardly one of the division’s best – and a Bournemouth side that have lost six of their last seven now.
In fact, the heaviest of those defeats for Eddie Howe’s men came against Liverpool as the Reds triumphed 4-0 at the Vitality Stadium, and there’s a growing sense that Jurgen Klopp’s outfit are primed for a succession of trophies in the near future.
Liverpool Must Not Get Complacent
Indeed, they followed that result with key victories over Napoli and Man Utd, leaving them with seven wins from their last eight outings across all competitions, with the exception at the Parc des Princes where PSG are so strong.
They shouldn’t be complacent against Wolves however, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have gone W1-D3-L1 versus the rest of the ‘Big Six’ so far this term – even taking a point off City when the reigning champions came to town. Wolves actually found the net in each of those encounters with the big guns, though we doubt they’ll get more than one up against this Liverpool defence.
The visitors hold a fantastic record at Anfield where they’ve conceded just twice in eight games, but even on their travels – where they’ve only kept four clean sheets from nine outings – they’re still yet to conceded more than once in a single game.
Moreover, the Reds have won seven of their eight unbeaten games against promoted sides since the start of last season, conceding in two of the three away from home, and although the hosts look a better calibre of side than previous teams to come up from the Championship, each of those victories were by at least two strikes.
Liverpool Should Take Home The Points
Given the undeniable firepower at their disposal, demonstrated by 10 goals in their last three away, Liverpool should be outgunning their hosts to take maximum points.
Indeed, they dominated with 65% of possession against United and won the shot count 36-6, with the 3-1 scoreline actually flattering their rivals.
All but one of Liverpool’s 10 clean sheets this term have come against teams below Wolves in the table however, with the exception their goalless stalemate with City, and with that in mind the away win and both teams to score looks profitable.
