Liverpool form

It’s fair to say that Liverpool’s form has been erratic, sometimes going from impressive to disastrous in the same match, as evidenced by the 5-2 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 first leg – they moved to a 2-0 lead before surrendering to the reigning European champions. Klopp’s men have won just two of their last seven Premier League games and are also knocked out of the F.A Cup after losing to Brighton.

They appear to be nine points behind fourth-placed Tottenham with two games remaining. It’s not an insurmountable gap, but the lack of stability in the squad won’t do them any favours.
form of wolves.

Prior to Lopetegui’s arrival, Wolves were bottom of the table, having picked up just 10 points in their first 16 games. While they are still in the works, the former Sevilla manager has managed to halt this decline in form, with the Molineux club now 15th after amassing 14 points in their last eight games.

The ups and downs remain, but the Wolves side, coupled with Lopetegui’s obvious expertise, managed to avoid them.At least for now.

Liverpool vs Wolves head to head

Liverpool have usually prevailed against Wednesday’s opponents, winning eight of their last ten meetings and drawing one. In fact, Wolves have only scored five goals during those nine games, as Liverpool have often dominated. However, Wolves’ last game a few weeks ago resulted in a 3-0 win for Wolves and with the 19-times English champions struggling, the visitors will feel they can repeat that victory. Here.

Liverpool squad news

Klopp has been plagued by multiple injuries this campaign and he finds himself without a few key names against Wolves. It is far too early for Thiago Alcantara or Luis Diaz to emerge as their recovery continues, while the boss may wonder if Anfield will ever see the best of Arthur Melo before his loan spell ends.

Ibrahima Konate is struggling with a hamstring injury and while he is back in training the team staff might decide it is too early for him to play. Joe Gomez will likely be out with a similar problem, but Klopp could be bolstered by the return of Darwin Nunez, who missed Crystal Palace at the weekend with a shoulder injury.

News from the Wolves team

Lopetegui will be without Matheus Cunha for the visit to Liverpool after the Brazilian striker was carried off for around an hour during Wolves’ 1-1 draw with Fulham last Friday. He joins Hwang Hee-chan, Sasa Kalajdzic and Chiquinho in the treatment room, but Boubacar Traore could be available to make match selection.

Cunha’s absence leaves a gap in Lopetegui’s starting squad, although Pedro Neto is unlikely to qualify as he continues to improve in form. Other than that, there is a full squad to choose from.

Predicted XIs

Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Robertson, Fabinho, Elliott, Henderson, Salah, Jota, Nunez

Wolves: Sa, Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Bueno, Neves, Lemina, Nunes, Traore, Jimenez, Sarabia


Given how the two sides’ performances have varied in quality week-on-week, this is a hard one to call. Victories over Everton and Newcastle United appeared to have given Liverpool a new lease of life, but the manner of the defeat to Real appears to have crushed their confidence once more. Wolves have the weapons to hurt them and, while they may not be able to pick up all three points at Anfield, they should have enough to earn a share of the spoils.
