Liverpool – Wolves Predictions and PREVIEW

  • Reigning FA Cup holders Liverpool host Wolves for what is set to be a fascinating third round tie, amid reports of the hosts’ revived interest in Wolves midfielder Matheus Nunes. The Reds’ 3-1 league defeat to Brentford last time out, combined with their current sixth-placed league position, might highlight the need for further additions after Cody Gakpo was brought in, but just one loss in their previous 14 home games since July (W11, D2) shows they are still very capable opponents at Anfield.
  • The loss of centre-back Virgil van Dijk to injury could see the visitors smell blood however, as this Liverpool side have looked uncharacteristically shaky at the back, highlighted by no shutouts in their last five games (W3, L2). But if you’re a fan of omens, Liverpool have won ten of their last 11 FA Cup third round ties, albeit that sole defeat (2-1) did arrive against Wolves in 2018/19!
  • Newly-appointed Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui won’t need reminding of the task ahead, after a 1-1 derby draw to Aston Villa last time out marked a mixed start to his tenure at the relegation threatened club (W2, D1, L1). The Spaniard brings cup-winning pedigree however, and having secured the Europa League with Sevilla in 2019/20 he will be searching for more additions to his trophy cabinet in his first-spell in England.
  • Having lost all five of their contests against the ‘Big Six’ this season by an aggregate of 10-0, a giant effort will be required of the visitors here. That lack of goals has been an ongoing issue and having managed more than one away goal on just one occasion this season (W1, D3, L5), Wolves will hope that their new manager sparks some travelling form.
  • Players to watch: Newly-signed Gakpo could make his Liverpool debut here and he’ll be looking to replicate the club’s most recent left-wing signings Diogo Jota (G1) and Luis Díaz (A1) by grabbing a goal contribution on his first FA Cup outing for the Reds. The busy schedule might mean a start for Wolves marksman Raúl Jiménez here, who netted in that FA Cup triumph over the Reds in 2018/19!
  • Hot stat: Liverpool have conceded before the 20th minute in three of their last four outings (W1, L2).
