Liverpool are topping the Premier League table right now and they want to stay there. But, to do so, they need to keep on winning, as Man City are breathing by their necks. All this means that beating Wolves on Friday evening is a must for Klopp’s boys. But, Wolverhampton play at home, at the Molineux Stadium, where they beat Chelsea two weeks ago. Can they do something similar against Liverpool? Find out in this Wolves vs Liverpool prediction, at the end of which, a few hopefully-useful betting tips await you!
Here’s a team that got promoted from the Championship, but which has no intention of going back there. Instead, Wolves are planning to finish the season somewhere in the middle of the table. And according to their current form, it seems they won’t have problem with achieving their plan.
Of course, it would be nice for them if they could achieve, even more, that is, if they could grab themselves a spot in the Europa League. Right now, they’re at the 7th place, with only a point fewer than Man United who are 6th. If they keep on playing well, they could get to that position pretty soon.
Unfortunately for Wolves, they have a pretty tough schedule ahead. First, they play against Liverpool, then on the last Saturday in December they play Tottenham in London, while two weeks after the New Year’s Eve, they travel to Manchester to play against City.
It won’t be easy to grab points in those games, but Wolves have already shown us that they can handle big games. They beat Chelsea on 5th December, while also playing draw with Manchester City back in September. The big question is can they do something similar this Friday when they’re facing raging Liverpool.
Liverpool look unstoppable at the moment. This team has won 5 games in a row, counting all competitions. And the good form has brought them a ticket to the Champions League knockouts. Even more importantly, it’s brought them to the top of the Premier League table.
And Klopp and his boys want to stay there till the end of the season. But, can they do it, considering that Manchester City are only a point behind? It’s still impossible to say, but one thing is certain – the Reds will do all in their power to win the title. And this means that they’re coming to Wolverhampton to win all 3 points!
Liverpool are still without a defeat this season, but they’re not going to Wolverhampton to try to stay unbeaten; they’re going there to win the match. Sure, breaking the organized defense of Wolves won’t be easy, but the Reds have been fantastic in the final third.
This team has scored a total of 37 Premier League goals this season, 10 of which they scored in the last 3 games. And that’s can’t be a surprise to anyone who’s been following Liverpool for the past couple of seasons. But, unlike in the past, this season, the Reds are incredibly strong in defense as well.
In fact, they’ve allowed only 7 goals so far, which is better than any other team in the league. And it’s mostly thanks to van Dijk, who’s currently one of the best central defenders on the planet. It’s also thanks to their goalie Alisson, who did make a big mistake in the previous game. But, because of that, we can expect him to work even harder to improve his goalkeeping form even more.
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (injury)

Wolves vs Liverpool Prediction
I think no one can stop Liverpool at the moment. They’re going to win this game, I’m sure about it. And I think Alisson is going to keep a clean sheet this time.
