The Hosts: Wolves’ Current Scenario

Gary O’Neil’s brigade faced a setback with a 3-2 loss against Crystal Palace. With eight goals conceded in just four games, defensive concerns loom large for the Wanderers.

Team News and Predictions

  • Potential Starter: Hwang Hee-chan, after his goal against Palace, might be in line for a starting berth.
  • Injury Update: Midfielder Joe Hodge remains the sole injury worry.
  • Predicted Lineup (4-4-2): Sa; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Ait-Nouri; Neto, Gomes, Lemina, Sarabia; Cunha, Hwang.

The Challengers: Liverpool’s Journey So Far

Liverpool, under Jurgen Klopp, seems to be finding their rhythm after a rather underwhelming 2022/23 season. Their recent victories against Newcastle and Aston Villa have showcased their intent.

Team News and Predictions

  • Absentees: Virgil van Dijk’s extended suspension and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s injury are significant blows.
  • Potential Changes: Joe Gomez might be shifted wide, with Wataru Endo possibly slotting in central defence. However, Ibrahima Konate’s return to training might alter these plans.
  • Predicted Lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Gomez, Endo, Matip, Robertson; Szoboszlai, Mac Allister; Jones; Salah, Jota, Diaz.

Match Prediction

While Wolves managed to secure points against Everton, their vulnerability against structured teams was evident in their 4-1 loss to Brighton. Liverpool, even with key players missing, boasts of a lethal attacking trio that might prove too hot to handle for the home side.

Final Verdict: Liverpool to edge past Wolves.

Key Stats

  • Wolves have conceded eight goals in their first four matches.
  • Liverpool’s recent form has seen them unbeaten in their last four games.
  • The last encounter between these two sides saw Liverpool winning 2-0.
