Liverpool will be desperate to get back on the winning trail in the Premier League when they face Wolves at Anfield on Wednesday evening.
Jurgen Klopp’s charges produced another dismal display in a goalless draw away to Crystal Palace last weekend, however, they are just three points behind sixth-placed Fulham, and with two games in hand.
Wolves, meanwhile, will be eager to allay their relegation fears, and they were held to a 1-1 draw away to Fulham last Friday.
However, Julen Lopetegui could be without five players for the trip to Merseyside, and that includes, who was stretchered off at Craven Cottage after picking up an ankle injury.
Wolves will be hoping to complete a rare league double over Liverpool, but how will this match unfold? We have gauged the markets and picked out a couple of tips for you to chew over ahead of kick-off.
Liverpool to stumble over the line
It seemed that Liverpool had turned a corner in the league with back-to-back victories over Everton and Newcastle.
Against Newcastle, Liverpool looked fluid and threatening going forward, although they were given a helping hand when goalkeeper Nick Pope was sent off after just 22 minutes for handling the ball outside the area.
That said, against Palace, Liverpool were lackadaisical in defence, and on a couple of occasions, Trent Alexander-Arnold nearly gifted a goal with sloppy play.
So far, Klopp’s charges have netted just 38 times, which is the fewest of any teams currently in the top eight, and they seem to take one step forward, and two steps back.
Wolves, of course, will need little reminding of their emphatic 3-0 win over Liverpool at Molineux in February.
Klopp will be hoping to have Darwin Nunez back fit as he has been nursing a shoulder injury, and while it won’t be pretty, Liverpool may well creep over the line and pick up three points. For my first pick, I have plumped for a 1-0 win for the Reds, which is available at 7/1 with William Hill.
Cody Gakpo to make the difference
While it can take some players time to adjust to the Premier League, Cody Gakpo has managed the leap, and he has done so in what has been a trying campaign for the Reds.
The Dutchman, who blew us away at the World Cup, has hit form, contributing two goals in his past three league outings.
If anything, Gakpo’s arrival has deflected attention away from the likes of Mohamed Salah, who has been below par this term.
Gakpo is the sort of player that can produce a bit of magic, and there have been glimpses that he is forming chemistry with his strike partners.
For my second pick, I have gone with Gakpo to open the scoring and net the only goal of the game, which is available at 5/1 with Paddy Power.
