Wolves vs Liverpool: Preview & Prediction

England Premier League
Saturday 4th February 2023
Kick off at 3pm GMT
Venue: Molineux Stadium

Match Preview:

Wolves fans will wince when they see their recent results over Liverpool, this is due to their FA Cup games where Wolves believed they had beaten the Reds with a late goal. VAR however had other ideas and that game finished 2-2 only for the replay to see Liverpool put in a professional performance and win 1-0. To say that Julen Lopetegui’s side are out for revenge is an under statement.

Wolves of course are in a relegation battle despite the fact that they have improved under Loptegui and are in 17th place, only goal difference is saving the club from being in the bottom three. However it is just one loss in their last 3 and that is good going for Wolves compared to how they started the season. Wolves did lose their last game 3-0 but that was expected as was against Manchester City but overall the vibe at the club has been much more positive.

Liverpool’s nightmare season has continued into 2023 and the Reds are yet to win a league game this year. They don’t want to hear Brighton’s name in the near future as the Seagulls not only overwhelmed in their last league game as they went down 3-0 but they also knocked them out of the FA Cup with a last minute stunner. Liverpool’s last home league game finished 0-0 against Chelsea and that means the Reds have zero wins in their last three games. It is stunning to think that Jurgen Klopp’s side come into this weekend 21 points behind league leaders Arsenal and 10 points from a top 4 place. 


Team News:

Wolves: The club has no new injuries but has a plethora of long term ones that include Sasa Kalajdzic, Boubacar Traore and Chiquinho An update on Pedro Neto suggests that the player could return from an ankle injury at the end of the season.

Liverpool: Fabio Carvalho is being tipped to return from a knock, Diogo Jota though is still about two weeks away with his calf, it is the same case for veteran Roberto Firmino. Ibrahima Konate remains a major doubt with his hamstring and is likely to miss out. Virgil van Dijk is about two weeks away from a return due to his hamstring and Luis Diaz is out with a knee injury with no fixed return date.


Wolves vs Liverpool Head to Head:

It’s been 3 years since Wolves beat Liverpool at home.

However it’s been 12 years since Wolves beat Liverpool in the league.

Two of the last 3 meetings has seen over 2.5 goals.


Wolves vs Liverpool Prediction:

This could be the best time to play Liverpool who are clearly struggling and Wolves will have their chances but the Reds need to play a clever game. We already know that Klopp’s side have struggled on the road so far with just 2 wins that would rank them in 14th place but they know the lay of the land with Wolves and they still have the better players even though key ones are missing.

Liverpool would normally be about 1.57 to win this away game but with the way they have started the season and their overall form the bookies have far less trust in them. Liverpool in this campaign have been poor by their standards and we haven't seen anything recently to indicate they are capable of turning it around anytime soon. We think the value is with Wolves who will be fired up to get something from this encounter.
