Premier League 2021-22: Wolves vs Liverpool Match Preview

In form, Liverpool will travel to Molineux to face Wolves. So far The Wanderers under the new manager Bruno Lage have had a decent season. However, on the weekend they have an inevitable task against the mighty Reds.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are in sensational form this season and are the highest goal-scoring side in the league. Liverpool will face Wolves following the merciless win against Everton in the Derby during midweek.

Meanwhile, Bruno Lage’s side have played out two consecutive goalless draws in the last two games. Currently, Wolverhampton Wanderers sits 8th in the league standings with the same points as Manchester United, who are in 7th position.

Wolves vs Liverpool: Match Preview

Liverpool have made perfect response after defeat at Hammers before the International Break. After the International Break Jurgen Klopp’s side looks a different side defensively with just one goal conceded in the last four games (all competitions). While scoring-wise Klopp’s men were fantastic right from the start of the season.

Meanwhile, Wolverhampton Wanderers have taken 10 points in the last four home games at Molineux. Defensively, Bruno Lage’s team looks good with their defence led by captain Conor Coady. Moreover, The Wanderers have only conceded 2 goals in that stretch.

But offensively Wolves are the second-lowest goal-scoring side after Norwich. And it looks unlikely that the home fans will enjoy their team scoring goals against Liverpool’s defence at the weekend.

Bruno’s side have entered into a difficult month where they play Liverpool, Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Man United in their next seven matches.

Meanwhile, for Liverpool, their records in Molineux stand good as The Reds haven’t lost a single match in their last eight fixtures on Wolves home turf. The previous defeat came back in 1981 where The Reds lost 1-0.

But interestingly, since promotion to Premier League in 2018 Wolves have just lost twice in their last 13 home games kicking off at 3 p.m(GMT) on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Liverpool’s 43 goals in the league so far have tied them with Wolves record in 1959-60 season. Wolverhampton Wanderers also scored 43 goals at this same stage and were also third in the table at that time.

With just two points separating the top three sides, the title race is tightly contested among Liverpool, Man City, and Chelsea. Klopp’s men can’t afford to put the foot out off-gas after putting four goals past Arsenal, Southampton, and Everton. Thus, Liverpool should be able to put another 3 points in their bag.

Team News

Roberto Firmino, Curtis Jones, and Harvey Elliott will continue to be sidelined for a little longer concerning their respective injuries.

Meanwhile, for Naby Keita and Joe Gomez, a trip to Molineux might be too early. But both of them are set to return to the team’s training next week.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain will be eyeing to start in place of Thiago who has started in recent two league games.

Liverpool probable starting lineup:

Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Oxlade Chamberlain; Salah, Jota, Mane

Wolves vs Liverpool: What Anfield Home Predicts

Liverpool’s scintillating form makes them clear favourites going into the game. While Wolves inconsistency is a concern for manager Bruno Lage.

Tired legs can come into play for both sides. Thus, it could be a low scoring fixture but a Liverpool team who’s scored 2+ goals in their last 18 games are a contender to win 2-1 at Molineux.
