With an ever-growing party atmosphere around the red half of Merseyside, a high-flying Liverpool will make the trip to Molineux on Thursday night.
Picking up a 2-0 win over bitter rivals Manchester United at Anfield last weekend and opening the midweek fixtures with a stunning 16-point buffer at the top of the table, Jurgen Klopp’s men find themselves in the midst of an eight-match winning run across all competitions.
On the flip side, after making a much-needed return to winning ways and mounting a second-half comeback against Southampton on the South Coast, Wolves still find themselves flirting with the European positions once again.
While Thursday’s hosts may have brought an end to their five-match winless run, they do hold a worrying top-flight record against the runaway leaders.
Suffering a 1-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield earlier in the season, the Reds have won each of their previous six Premier League matches against the Oranges. You might be interested to know that another victory for Klopp’s side can be found at 8/13 with Ladbrokes.
Jimenez leads remarkable turnaround

However, putting in what was a scintillating second-half performance on the South Coast, the Europa League outfit bagged completed a stunning turnaround and managed to clinch a dramatic 3-2 win on the road.
With Head Coach Nuno Espirito Santo announcing he was “very proud” of his side’s resolve over the weekend, there is no doubt that fans around Molineux will be extremely glad to see leading marksman Raul Jimenez refined his goalscoring touch.
Bagging a brace on the South Coast and leading Wolves’ fightback, the Mexican striker has now recorded four Premier League goals in his last six appearances, a run that also saw him find the net in their 3-2 victory over Manchester City last month.

Liverpool’s defensive masterclass
Picking up a 2-0 win over their bitter rivals among party scenes at Anfield last weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s men have now landed back-to-back victories over Manchester United and Tottenham.

With a commanding buffer at the top of the table and landing the Club World Cup title last month, fans on Mersyside now have their sights set on securing a silverware sweep.
While Mohamed Salah’s injury-time strike might have stolen the headlines over the weekend, there is no doubt that the former Borussia Dortmund boss will be most impressed by his side’s continued performances at the back.
Recording yet another clean sheet at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, the Reds are yet to concede a single goal since opening the New Year and have remarkably kept seven clean sheets across all formats on the bounce.
