Liverpool V Wolves: Preview, Team News And Betting Odds

Liverpool will play in front of fans at Anfield for the first time in nine months when they face Wolves on Sunday evening. It will only be 2000 supporters but it’s a start.

The Reds will be going up against a team which won at Arsenal last time out so this will be a very difficult game, considering the number of injuries that the home side will have to contend with.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has ELEVEN fitness concerns heading into the weekend. He is confident that Andy Robertson (ankle) and captain Jordan Henderson (back) will shake off knocks while Trent Alexander-Arnold (calf) should be back in the matchday squad.

However, Alisson Becker (hamstring), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee), James Milner (hamstring), Thiago Alcantara (knee), Naby Keita (hamstring), Xherdan Shaqiri (muscular), Joe Gomez (knee) and Virgil van Dijk (knee) are all unavailable.

In contrast, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has just three players sidelined. Romain Saiss could be back in contention if he turns back a negative test for the virus, but Raul Jimenez (head) and Jonny (knee) are both ruled out.

The bookmakers have Liverpool as favourites with 888 Sport pricing them at 13/25 for the win. A draw is currently 100/30 with Sky Bet while a Wolves victory is 6/1 at William Hill.

Predicted Score – 1-1
