Wolves vs Liverpool Prediction
Wolves need to start picking up wins again if they have any aspirations to finish in the top six and fight for a Europa League qualification spot. Coach Nuno Espirito Santo will have to do without the services of Willy Boly, Diogo Jota, and Ruben Viangre who are all ruled out through injury.
Liverpool are on a run of seven wins in a row going back to when their youth team lost 5-0 to Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup and don’t look like losing any time soon. The Reds beat Wolves 1-0 at Anfield just before New Years in the league thanks to Sadio Mane’s first half strike. Coach Jurgen Klopp is without Naby Keita, Nathaniel Clyne, and James Milner, while Dejan Lovren, Joel Matip, and Fabinho are close to making a return to fitness but might not make it in time for this one.
