Wolves v Liverpool Tips: Can Nuno’s men see off another Prem giant?

| 07.01.2019

Wolverhampton Wanderers have proven themselves a side for the big occasion this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men won 3-1 at Tottenham Hotspur in their last Premier League away game. They’ve also beaten Chelsea, as well as taking points off Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.

With visitors Liverpool likely to field a changed squad for tonight’s FA Cup clash, could the hosts claim another huge scalp at Molineux?

Match odds

The Reds did win on their last visit to this part of the Black Country. Our traders make them 5/6 favourites to do the job again.

Meanwhile, it’s 16/5 for Wolves to see off the men from Merseyside. And there’s 5/2 on offer for this clash to produce a replay.

Interestingly, Liverpool haven’t made it past the fourth round of this competition in three seasons – and they’ve needed replays to see off Exeter City and Plymouth in the process.

Four of Liverpool’s last five games have produced Over 2.5 Goals, and we go 20/23 for a repeat. Meanwhile, it’s 3/1 for both sides to notch before the interval.

Talking Tactics

Wolves have gone five at the back for much of this season. The powerful Willy Boly offers some steel at the heart of that backline, while there’s creativity out wide from Ruben Vinagre and Matt Doherty.

Further forward, Raul Jimenez is likely to lead the line – with Ivan Cavaleiro and Helder Costa bombing forward out wide.

With their Premier League title tilt the priority, Jurgen Klopp is likely to shake up his Reds’ side. That could mean rare starts for Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana, while forgotten man Alberto Moreno could also be in the line-up at left-back.

Goalscorer odds

He might not start, but Mohamed Salah still heads the Anytime Goalscorer market. The Egyptian is 23/20 to find the net

Sturridge seems the more likely to begin the game up top, and two of his last four goals have been deadlock-breakers. The 29-year-old is 4/1 to be First Goalscorer.

For the hosts, Jimenez looks the biggest goal-threat. The Mexican magician has netted in six games this term – five of those at Molineux. He’s 23/10 to notch again.

As for right-back Doherty, he’s netted three times since the start of October and could be a popular pick at 5/1 Anytime.
