Wolves vs Liverpool: Predictions
Defending Premier League champions Liverpool are certainly not experiencing the season many expected them to have, with some previously tipping the Reds to start a dynasty following their dominant title win. Instead, Jurgen Klopp’s side have faltered and current sit eighth, facing an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League next season.
The Reds are seven points behind fourth-placed Chelsea as things stand and go into this weekend’s game against Wolves in terrible form. Since the start of February, Liverpool have won just three of their nine games across all competitions with two of those coming in the Champions League. In the Premier League during that period, their record reads seven games, one win and six defeats (the worst form in the division) including back-to-back losses against Chelsea and Fulham.
But their hosts, Wolves, are also in underwhelming form, winless in their past three matches. Last weekend they were part of a goalless draw with Aston Villa, having lost against Man City and drawn against Newcastle in their previous two matches.
The run leaves Nuno Espirito Santo’s side 12th in the Premier League, still closer to the relegation zone than they would have liked to be. The nine point gap between themselves and 18th-placed Fulham, plus the amount of teams in between, should be enough to keep Wolves safe, but they will be hoping to arrest their slump and move away from the drop zone.
Wolves vs Liverpool: Match Stats
Unless you’re a rival fan, or a narcissist, Liverpool matches haven’t been the most exciting games to watch with the Reds struggling in front of goal but also having a tough defence to break down – a huge achievement considering how they’ve had to deal with injuries at the back. Since the start of February, Liverpool have scored just four goals in seven games and they have found found the net with only two of their last 67 shots in the competition, massively underperforming the xG of 6.7.
Yes, Liverpool have won just one of their past seven Premier League matches, but a bizarre run of fixtures has seen five of those played at Anfield (where their losing streak stretches to six). Away from home, they haven’t been too bad, winning their past three games across all competitions not at Anfield without conceding, including the “home tie” against RB Leipzig that took place in Budapest. In the Premier League, they have won three of their past four.
