Liverpool Prediction

It’s expected to be something of a carnival atmosphere at Anfield today following Liverpool’s amazing comeback in midweek in the Champions League where they scored 4 goals without reply to overcome Barcelona 4-3 on aggregate which saw the hosts through to the final of the competition.

However, it’s back to the serious business of capturing their first ever Premier League title but even if they do win today, they’ll be needing Brighton to them a favour against Manchester City at the AMEX Stadium.

All Liverpool can do therefore, is to go all out to win this match and take three points, and having won their last 8 league matches on the trot, it would be a brave man to bet against them recording a 9th straight win at Anfield today.

Liverpool still remain unbeaten at home this season which is an amazing achievement in itself with an outstanding record of 16-2-0 53/10 and although they’ve recorded an impressive 11 clean sheets to date, 12 of Liverpool’s 18 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Wolves Prediction

Wolves have been the surprise package in this season’s Premier League campaign as the west midlands club look to seal 7th place in the top flight in their first season back in the big time.

The heavy financial investment from their Chinese owners certainly paid dividends as Wolves were promoted from the Championship at the end of last season and continued their momentum in the Premier League this term, with manager, Nuno Espirito Santos’s personal stock rising as each match passes.

Wolves have lost just 2 of their last 9 matches in the Premier League which were defeats to Burnley and Southampton (both away from home and both very winnable matches for this Wolves outfit). However, recent wins against Manchester United, Arsenal, Watford and Fulham have outweighed these defeats, although Wolves will need to be more consistent against the perceived ‘weaker’ teams next season if they’re to improve upon a possible 7th place finish next season.

By contrast, Wolves have lost just 1 of their 5 away matches against the Big 6 which was a 3-0 loss at Manchester City, but 1-1 draws at Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea, along with a 3-1 victory at Tottenham prove that they’re more than capable of mixing it with the big boys.


Key-Facts – Liverpool v Wolves

  • 12 of Liverpool’s 18 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals in the EPL
  • Wolves have lost just 1 of their 5 away matches against the Big 6 in the EPL
  • Wolves have scored in 13 of their 18 away matches in the EPL


Betting Tips Verdict

Liverpool will no doubt press for a win here while Wolves have proved they’re capable of getting results against the best teams in the division – we should see some goals in this one.
