Liverpool travel to the Molineux to face Wolves this weekend in an important tie for both sides. The Reds will be looking to continue their good form this season with another win, while Wolves will look to increase the buffer between them and the relegation zone.
Wolves sit 12 spots below their opponents this weekend in 15th. With just one win and three losses in four games, Wolves have just three points to their name, two points away from the relegation zone.
The first game of the season for Wolves was somewhat disappointing. After a positive game for Wolves and a questionable decision against them, Wolves lost 1 - 0 to Manchester United when Raphael Varane scored late on. Another loss came against Brighton, Hwang Hee-Chan did score for Wolves but goals from Kaoru Mitoma, Pervis Estupinan and a double from Solly March gave Brighton the 4 - 1 win over ten man Wolves who had Matheus Nunes sent off. The one win for Wolves came against Everton where Sasa Kalajdzic scored in the 87th minute for the 1 - 0 win.
Wolves’ last outing in the Premier League was a trip to Crystal Palace. Hee-Chan equalised for Wolves after Odsonne Edouard opened the scoring for Crystal Palace. However, an Eberechi Eze goal and another goal from Edouard gave Palace the 3 - 1 lead. Matheus Cunha did score late on but it wasn’t enough as Wolves lost 3 - 2.
Liverpool currently sit third in the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp’s side have picked up ten points in four games, managing three wins and one draw.
The opening weekend of the season saw Liverpool travel to Chelsea. Luis Diaz opened the scoring for Liverpool with Mohamed Salah also thought he had doubled the lead before halftime but it was ruled out for offside. Axel Disasi equalised for Chelsea in the 37th minute and the game played out to a 1 - 1 draw with Chelsea also having a goal ruled out for offside. Diaz and Salah scored again along with Diogo Jota to give Liverpool the 3 - 1 win over Bournemouth despite the red card to Alex Mac Allister. Anthony Gordon scored early on for Newcastle to give The Magpies the lead that looked likely to give Newcastle the win. Virgil Van Dijk was also given a red card just minutes after Gordon’s goal, but despite being one man down, Darwin Nunez scored twice in the last 15 minutes to give Liverpool the 2 - 1 win.
Liverpool’s final outing in the league before the international break was against Aston Villa. Dominik Szoboszlai and Salah scored with an own goal from Matty Cash to give Liverpool the 3 - 0 win.
Wolves and Liverpool have met an impressive 114 times in their histories, the first meeting coming back in 1894. Liverpool have the better track record in the fixture with 59 wins in comparison to Wolves’ 37 wins. Draws aren’t too common in this fixture with points being shared only 18 times.
Liverpool are likely to take the win as they’ve only lost once in the last ten meetings with Wolves, a shock 3 - 0 loss in February.
