Liverpool will be looking to go back to the top of the Premier League this weekend, as they welcome Wolverhampton Wanders to Anfield. But, will they be able to continue their excellent home record?
Premier League Preview
Liverpool’s injury problems have continued to mount over recent weeks, which has left Jurgen Klopp berating the broadcasters. However, that hasn’t stopped the Reds from picking up points, and they are currently second in the Premier League table. Liverpool have lost just once game this season, with that coming against Aston Villa. However, since that defeat, they have been able to improve defensively, and they have won three of their five recent fixtures. They are struggling to find the winning consistency that saw them pull away last season, as they have won just once in three. Their most recent outing ended in a controversial draw against Brighton & Hove Albion. Pascal Gross scored a late penalty for Brighton to secure a draw in that game, which ended Liverpool’s hopes of ending the weekend at the top of the league. However, they will be favourites to maintain their excellent home run of form against Wolves this weekend.
Wolves won’t be looking to just turn up at Anfield, as they will be coming into this game off the back of a famous win against Arsenal last time out. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side claimed all three points in an eventful game at the Emirates, with Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence scoring the goals. However, they will be without Raul Jimenez for an extended period of time, after he sustained a fractured skull in that same match after a clash of heads with David Luiz. A win this weekend for Wolves would see them go into the top-four of the Premier League.
Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Head To Head
Liverpool have a great record against Wolves in the Premier League since the Midlands team returned to the top-flight. They have won all four league fixtures against Wolves. However, Wolves have won the two cup games played between the sides in the last six.
Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Prediction
Wolves are a difficult side to write off, as they have the tools to challenge the bigger teams in the league on the counter-attack. That will once again be their game plan this weekend, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see them pick up a point at Anfield.
