Wolves Prediction

Although Wolves were on the end of a 2-0 defeat at home to Crystal Palace last time out, it’s nevertheless been a successful return to the Premier League for the west midlands club as Nuno Espirito Santos’s side sit in 9th place in the English top flight, and they can head into this cup-tie in confident mood and nothing to lose as they seek to cause another upset.

Wolves have already accounted for the likes of Chelsea, Newcastle United and Tottenham in recent weeks in the Premier League so a home tie against Liverpool won’t faze the hosts as they look to get their name in the hat for the 4th round of the cup.

However, Wolves have lost their last two matches at home with defeats to tonight’s opponents Liverpool and a loss to Crystal Palace last time out at Molineux, so they’ll be looking to avenge those defeats here.

Forwards Jimenez (6 goals) and Cavaleiro (3 goals) seem the best bets to score for the hosts this evening.

Liverpool Prediction

As mentioned earlier, Liverpool sit top of the Premier League but their lead at the top has been cut to four points as they too head into this FA Cup tie on the back of a 2-1 defeat away at Manchester City.

That defeat by Manchester City ended Liverpool’s impressive eight-match winning streak and Jurgen Klopp’s men now face a tricky trip to the west midlands to take on a well-supported Wolves outfit who have nothing to lose in going all out for a win here.

Liverpool have recorded away wins in the league at Watford, Burnley, Bournemouth and Wolves but have also tasted defeat at Crvena Zvezda and PSG in the Champions League along with the aforementioned loss to Manchester City.

In their 14 away matches in all competitions to date, Liverpool have failed to score just once and even with the fringe players like Shaqiri and Sturridge up front, the visitors should get on the scoresheet here.

Betting Tips Verdict

Wolves will go for it tonight and Liverpool always carry a goal threat going forward while defender Lovren will always give the opposition an opening. Both teams to score here.
