League leaders Liverpool head to Molineaux to play sixth-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers. Liverpool are 30 points away from winning their first-ever Premier League title and can reduce that number to 27 with a win versus Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers made a miraculous comeback from two goals down last weekend versus Southampton to win 3-2. Although Nuno Espirito Santo’s team won the match, the amount of energy used was immense.

Liverpool have ground out victories in result weeks keeping seven consecutive clean sheets in the league. Sunday’s win versus Manchester United saw the Reds cut open the visitors at will while staying organised in defence.

Jurgen Klopp’s team went to Molineaux last season in the Premier League and claimed a 2-0 win. The Reds scored in both halves to claim the victory. Liverpool have claimed three straight wins to nil versus Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.

However, Santo’s team did gain a win at Molineaux in the FA Cup third round during the 2018-19 season. Klopp did play a heavily rotated team in that match while Santo played a full-strength team.

Klopp has a number of players back from injury for the fixture. Fabinho returned to the squad and came on as a second-half sub versus Manchester United. He will be in line to start and give Georginio Wijnaldum or Jordan Henderson the chance to rest.

Liverpool have an FA Cup fourth round match versus Shrewsbury Town on Sunday. Klopp will certainly play several back-up players for the cup fixture. Therefore, he will probably pick the strongest team possible versus Wolves.

Santo could have forward Diogo Jota back from injury. Jota has a lower leg injury and has missed the last few matches. His absence has been a blow for Santo as Wolves team has struggled with fatigue.

Liverpool’s only blemish on the road this season came at Old Trafford. The Reds drew 1-1 with Manchester United. Liverpool have taken 28 points from 30 possible and conceded a mere five goals.

Can Liverpool defeat Wolverhampton Wanderers for the second time in four weeks? The Reds have been playing brilliantly grinding out result. Expect the Reds to win to nil with under 2.5 goals scored.
