A troubled Wanderers will face the battling Merseyside Reds on Saturday.
Wolves have had a disastrous start to their Premier League campaign, falling into the relegation zone. However, things have transpired under Julen Lopetegui, and the club is trying to win. They are currently 17th in the league and will face Liverpool, who are experiencing their own problems to contend with.
Liverpool were competing for four trophies last season, and this season they have already been eliminated from domestic cups and trying to finish first in order to secure a place in the Champions League. Jurgen Klopp will need to devise a plan to end the team’s poor output.
Kick-off: 8:30 pm IST, 02-02-2023, 3 pm GMT, 02-02-2023
Wolverhampton Wanderers form (all competition): L-W-D-L-W
Liverpool form (all competition): D-L-L-W-W
Players to watch
Neves’ ball-handling abilities are outstanding; he can locate players from anywhere on the field and also create opportunities. He is a box-to-box player who can also play defensive midfielder. And he likes to cover the entire field; with Liverpool’s defence looking vulnerable, Neves can outmanoeuvre their midfield in the contest.
Harvey Elliott is a versatile midfielder who can also play on the right flank for Liverpool. His two goals in the last two games indicate that he has mellowed as an understanding player and has been more meaningful than new Merseyside signings.

Injury and team news
Wolves have only two injury concerns: Pedro Neto and Boubacar are both out and their return date is unknown. Liverpool are in the midst of an injury crisis, with Van Dijk, Robert Firmino, Luiz Diaz Ibrahima Konate, Diogo Jota, and Arthur all out.
Wolves (4-3-3): Sa; Semedo, Collins, Kilman, Bueno; Lemina, Neves, Nunes; Hwang, Cunha, Podence
Liverpool (4-3-3): Allison; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Thiago, Bajcetic, Elliott; Salah, Nunez, Gakpo
Wolves were defeated 3-0 by Manchester City, while Liverpool were eliminated by Brighton Hove & Albion. Both clubs will be determined for three points, with Lopetegui aiming to avoid the relegation zone and Klopp aiming to secure a Champions League spot. Wolves have been a different side under the Spanish manager, and we believe they will hand The Merseyside another defeat.
