Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers betting tips: Premier League preview, predictions, team news and odds


Match preview

For the fourth time in just 53 days, Liverpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers go head-to-head.

First, in the FA Cup, Wolves were wrongly denied a famous win at Anfield, due to a VAR malfunction, before Liverpool won the replay thanks to Harvey Elliott rocket.

Julen Lopetegui’s team then firmly got revenge at Molineux, demolishing the Reds 3-0 in the league in early-February.

So, the away side will travel to Merseyside hopeful of completing a first league double over Liverpool since 1950.

Wolves were last in action on Friday night, drawing 1-1 with Fulham at Craven Cottage, taking the lead through Pablo Sarabia.

This means, since the World Cup, the Wanderers have lost just three of nine league games, these defeats coming at the hands of the two Manchester clubs and, curiously enough, Bournemouth.

Liverpool meantime need to make up ground in the top four race, having only managed a goalless draw with Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday night in, what truly was, a dreadful game.

Jürgen Klopp’s side are up to seventh, nine points below Tottenham in fourth, with this the first of two games in hand.

With Manchester United visiting Anfield on Sunday, it’s vitally important that Liverpool claim three points here.

Liverpool team news

Diogo Jota started for the first time since mid-October on Saturday, coming in for Darwin Núñez who’s struggling with a shoulder issue.

Meanwhile, Stefan Bajčetić is likely to come back into midfield, given that James Milner hasn’t started back-to-back Premier League games since August, while Thiago is out long-term.

With Ibrahima Konaté and Joe Gomez both doubts, Virgil van Dijk will continue to be partnered by Joël Matip at the back.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Matip, Robertson; Bajčetić, Fabinho, Henderson; Salah, Jota, Gakpo.

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

Matheus Cunha went off injured at Craven Cottage on Friday night, so will join fellow centre-forwards Hwang Hee-chan and Saša Kalajdžić in the treatment room.

It’s over a year now since a Wolves striker scored in the Premier League, 370 days to be exact, with Hwang netting in a defeat at Arsenal back then.

Could Diego Costa be the man to change that?

He has scored twice against Liverpool before, but is a shadow of his former self.

Craig Dawson, Ballon to his friends, did find the target on his Wolves debut against Liverpool, so will be a threat once again.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): José Sá; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Bueno; Lemina, Neves, Nunes; Sarabia, A Traoré, Jiménez.
