Wolves vs Liverpool: Match details
Match: Wolves vs Liverpool
Competition: Premier League
Date: March 15, 2021
Kick-off time: 8:00 pm, March 15, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: Molineux Stadium
Betting prediction: Wolves 0-1 Liverpool
Wolves host Liverpool at the Molineux as they continue to get points of late, losing just one in their last six (4-1 to Manchester City), but will look at their 1-1 draw against Newcastle as dropped points rather than a point earned. For Liverpool, five losses from their last six in the league are nothing short of abysmal, and the current holders are now eight points outside the top four, and an astonishing twenty-five points off the same club they outpaced to the title last season. But could their midweek win over a very good RB Leipzig show a change in fortunes? I think so.
Wolves vs Liverpool: Recommended bets
First to Score: Mohamed Salah
His goal against RB Leipzig could be the shot in the arm that the mercurial Egyptian frontman needs. He’s gone four on the trot in the league without a goal, after a run of form that saw him hit four in four. In a game that may feature few goals, Salah’s streakiness of late could be in his favour. He’s due for a run of performances that feature him on the scoresheet.
Winning Margin: Liverpool +1
You have to start somewhere, and right now for Liverpool, it is mostly about logging point totals rather than trying to go out and smash their opponent on the day. The result against Leipzig was a huge positive and shows that they can still stand toe-to-toe with clubs of a high level despite the nature of their season thus far. Wolves still struggle to be consistent in front of goal without Rául Jimenez and Willian José still having yet to score for the club. A 1-0 away win could be on the cards and Jürgen Klopp would hardly complain.

Wolves vs Liverpool: Match preview
Wolves are difficult to beat again in recent weeks, and that dynamic playing out on the pitch has not come a moment too soon for manager Nuno Espirito Santo in a season that has gone nowhere near what the plan likely was. This season sang from a different hymn sheet for Wolves, one that was a far cry from the previous two campaigns that saw them finish seventh on both occasions.
It was not without justifiable speed bumps, though, and the sale of Diogo Jota and unfortunate injury suffered by Rául Jimenez put Wolves on the back foot in terms of how effective they could be in the final third this season without their best-two attacking players since promotion.
What you are and who you are also matters as well. At certain points this season, Nuno Espirito Santo has tried Wolves’ hand at a back four rather than their more accustomed back three, as well as trying to be more expansive on the pitch rather than just a direct side based on counter-attacking football. But some of that was his hand being forced given injuries suffered at the back, and there is nothing wrong with trying to become a more expansive side in an ever-evolving Premier League where quality on the ball and in possession is of the utmost importance.
Going back to the shoe that fits best may be the best route forward for Wolves for the remainder of the season as they are no longer struggling with injuries, especially against a struggling Liverpool who have lost five of their last six. A different approach would dictate going for the jugular and hitting Liverpool when they’re down, but the best chance for Wolves to get something – if not all the points – against a side that is still very capable regarding the talent on offer, is sticking to what has worked for them overall. If the familiar Wolves turn up, they could consign Liverpool to yet another defeat.
Are Liverpool at the end of their cycle under Jürgen Klopp?
Pep Guardiola once made reference to the existence of managerial cycles that have become commonplace in the modern game. Perhaps that directly speaks to the fact that his longest managerial stint has been at Manchester City, but at bigger clubs like Barcelona and Bayern Munich, he was only present on the touchline for four and three years respectively. Longer stints certainly are less common, and epic tales of Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsène Wenger are now a distant memory.
As football continuously evolves year on year, change and refreshment are a necessity, and most managers struggle with keeping up with the times unless that is in their personal coaching DNA. But even beyond that, sometimes, you just need something new. A new face, a new approach, a new directive, and a new voice. Jürgen Klopp has been – in a word – superb for Liverpool since he resumed his managerial career after a brief break post-his time at Borussia Dortmund. A Champions League win, and Liverpool’s first Premier League trophy, is just about what you would expect from who – for many – is one of the best managers in world football.
But things have come so undone so quickly under the German headmaster this term. It certainly is easy, and probably correct really, to point to the massive injury minefield that Liverpool was given the task of negotiating, but it could be much more than that. There are few that would look at the injury issues with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, and a host of other Liverpool players this season and think it has not played a part in their domestic campaign, but Liverpool’s issues stretch further away than just defensive woes.
The truth of the matter is, the Reds have not looked themselves going forward either, and the question should be asked if things under Klopp just are not working the same, if there needs to be a change of direction in the forward line or a combination of both. It’s a hard conversation to have, given the four main attacking options Klopp has under his command, but there is no denying that things have looked incredibly disjointed in the final-third this season in comparison to previous campaigns. Because football is ever-fluid and cyclical, it’s possible that big changes are needed in the summer if Liverpool is to get back to the heights they feel they deserve.

Raúl Jimenez remains unavailable for Nuno Espirito Santo, but he is the only long-term absent member of the squad.

Liverpool team news vs Wolves
Liverpool continues to be skint at the back, with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Joe Gomez, and Jordan Henderson all out.
The Reds put in a credible 2-0 win against RB Leipzig in midweek, so there is little reason for Jürgen Klopp to change much on Monday.
