Wolves vs Liverpool Match Details
Wolves vs Liverpool kicks-off at 20.00 at Molineux Stadium on Thursday 23 January. The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1.
Like most teams in mid-table in the Premier League, the recent form of Wolves has been up and down. That’s highlighted by one loss, one draw, and one win in their last three games, but they showed plenty of passion and skill to come back from 2-0 against Southampton to win 3-2 on Saturday. They’ve also done the double over Manchester City this season, showcasing just what they are capable of.
They showed good defensive qualities in the FA Cup against Manchester United, drawing 0-0 at home before losing to the only game of the game in the replay at Old Trafford. However, it has to be a worry that they couldn’t breakdown a United defence that has conceded nearly double the amount of goals that Liverpool have in the Premier League this season.
Liverpool’s latest victims Manchester United may have been without top scorer Marcus Rashford on Sunday but Liverpool’s defence still gave United few chances even when United threw more men forward in a bid to get an equaliser in the second half.
That clean sheet means Liverpool have now kept 11 clean sheets in their last 12 games, including in away matches against Leicester and Tottenham.
Wolves vs Liverpool Head-To-Heads
Wolves and Liverpool have met 11 times in the Premier League, with Wolves winning just once, and that was an away tie at Anfield.
Liverpool have won eight of the 11 matches, winning three of their five games at the Molineux Stadium and drawing the other two.
That suggests Wolves are up against it, but the evidence of the last two seasons is even more damning.
Liverpool won both games last season 2-0 and continued their latest winning run with a 1-0 win at Anfield on the 29 December. However, Wolves were on the wrong side of a couple of VAR decisions that day.
