Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview – Prediction, how to watch & potential line-ups

Liverpool’s disjointed Premier League campaign continues at Anfield against bottom-half strugglers Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday evening. 

Back-to-back 2-0 wins over Everton and Newcastle United seemed to have reignited the Reds’ late top-four push before a tepid 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace last weekend added insult to injury.

Jurgen Klopp’s men return to Anfield for the first time since an embarrassing 5-2 defeat to Real Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie, looking to make up to their devastated fans. 

Anything other than victory would add to building pressure on the German manager, with Liverpool trailing fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur by nine points, albeit with two games in hand. 

What better way to get back to winning ways than avenging a dreadful 3-0 loss at Wolverhampton in the reverse fixture earlier in February? 

Although Wolves followed that win with a 2-1 triumph at rock-bottom Southampton, their wheels have seemingly fallen off lately, as they come into proceedings on the back of consecutive league games without winning (D1, L1). 

After a disheartening 1-0 home defeat to Bournemouth, they wasted a 1-0 half-time lead in a closely-contested 1-1 draw away to Fulham last Friday. 

Julen Lopetegui has lifted the spirits in the west Midlands since taking over the managerial reigns, but a three-point lead on 18th-placed Everton means he still has plenty on his plate. 

Match Preview


These are dark times for the Anfield faithful, yet a run of three consecutive Premier League clean sheets for the first time this season offers a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel. 

But while improving his backline, Klopp has lost track of his poor-performing frontline, leading to Liverpool failing to get on the scoresheet in four of their last six league outings. 

To better understand the gravity of the situation, the German manager should know that his men had four scoring blanks across their 65 top-flight matches beforehand.

Wolves are familiar with Liverpool’s growing scoring woes, as they lament the league’s second-worst attacking record in the Premier League (18). 

The victory over the Reds in the reverse fixture could’ve been just a one-off, especially considering that three-goal tally equalled Wolves’ scoring record across their 11 previous top-flight H2Hs.

After arresting an abysmal 11-match losing run against Liverpool in the Premier League, Wolves are looking to complete a league double against the Reds for the first time since 1950/51.

Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Prediction

Liverpool hit the woodwork twice at Selhurst Park on Saturday and couldn’t be accused of a lack of trying as the finishing touch let them down in London.

After rediscovering their defensive resilience, they could be in a prime position to punish Wolves’ traditionally defensive-minded approach on the road. 

One goal could decide this affair, and with the Reds boasting more firepower in their ranks, we back Klopp’s side to return the favour to Lopetegui.
