It is a tricky fixture for Liverpool, who are on a red hot scoring form. Wolves are one of the tightest defence in the league having kept 5 clean sheets in the 14 games.
Liverpool is coming back from another impressive away victory, defeating Everton in the Merseyside derby. They are currently 3rd in the table just 2 points behind leaders Chelsea. Wolves on the other hand are 8th in the table, 3 points away from 4th placed West Ham United.
WOLVES VS LIVERPOOL: TEAM NEWS AND INJURIES
The home side will be happy to welcome back Ruben Neves who is returning after his suspension. All the major long term absentees will remain unavailable.
This will include the likes of Willy Boly, Jonny, Hugo Bueno, Yerson Mosquera and Pedro Neto. Fernando Marcal is also not available for selection after contracting Covid-19. It is still doubt if Daniel Podence will return, after just recovering from the coronavirus.
As for Liverpool, there are no new injuries for the team. Roberto Firmino, Harvey Elliott and Curtis Jones are all still recovering and will miss out. However, there is positive news as Joe Gomez and Naby Keita are back in training. But the Wolves game could be too early for them. Both sides are expected to make changes to their teams keeping in mind the December fixture congestion.
POSSIBLE LINEUPS AND PREDICTIONS
WOLVES: Jose Sa; Maximilian Kilman, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss; Nelson Semedo, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Rayan Ait Nouri; Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez, Hwang Hee-Chan.
LIVERPOOL: Alisson Becker; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane.
PREDICTIONS: WOLVES 0 – 3 LIVERPOOL
Wolverhampton Wanderers are an excellent defensive unit this season. However, the heavy metal attack of Liverpool could be too much for the home side. The away form of the Reds is simply ridiculous scoring a minimum of two goals in all the away games this season.
Liverpool has scored 25 goals on the road while conceding just 7 in the Premier League this season. Wolves though strong in the defence have found it very hard to score goals. They have only scored 12 all season in the league, the same as the number of goals they have conceded.
Hence we expect the game to go in the favour of the visitors.
