Match Today: Liverpool vs Wolverhampton 04-02-2023 English Premier League

Wolverhampton Wanderers are preparing to face Liverpool for the third time in 2023, this time in a Premier League match at Molineux.

The hosts, Wolverhampton, go into this match with 17 points in the seventeenth place, while Liverpool ranks ninth with 29 points. Wolves are outside the relegation zone on goal difference only, and after failing to beat the Reds in two matches in the FA Cup, they hope to finally get one here.

With Everton facing Arsenal at an early start, Wolverhampton could find themselves in the relegation zone should Everton beat the league leaders. The second half saw a collapse in their final game, Wolves losing 3-0 to Manchester City. They will be hoping to avoid a repeat of this game.

Coach Julen Lopetegui's team has only one win in its last seven matches; They've only beaten West Ham United in that period. Of a possible 30 points in their last 10 league games, Wolves have only managed eight. They've had clean sheets in 10 league games and failed to score in four of the 10 games. Cequinho, Sasa Kalajdzic, Boubacar Traore and Pedro Neto are all out of this match due to injury.

Liverpool vs Wolverhampton

Liverpool was out of color this season, and here they will face another difficult test as they face Wolverhampton for the third time this season. The two tied in the first match and Liverpool won the second match, both in the FA Cup.

But Liverpool are coming off a 2-1 defeat by Brighton in the FA Cup. It's the third time in five matches they've conceded more than one goal point for defensive issues Jurgen Klopp needs to address. With Virgil van Dijk out, their defense is becoming more exposed, and that's in part. The reason they have won only once in six matches is that Liverpool have not won their last three league matches, and in two of the three matches they have conceded a combined six goals.

They improved though in their last league game, drawing 0-0 at Chelsea, but have yet to score in their last two league games. The Reds have gone nine away, winning just two this season. Klopp will once again have to deal with a long list of players. Injuries Ibrahima Konate joins Van Dijk, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz and Roberto Firmino in the treatment room.

Wolverhampton vs Liverpool

Liverpool have two wins in nine away matches, and Wolverhampton Wanderers have a clean sheet in 10 league matches.

The two teams scored in six out of nine away matches in the league this season, Wolverhampton Wanderers achieved two wins in the last 10 league matches, Liverpool did not win in the last three league matches.

Liverpool have had a bad season so far and the list of injuries is constantly growing. Despite their profile, they do not have a clear advantage over Wolverhampton in terms of modern form before this match. The Reds managed to win at Molineux recently but they will find the Wolves ready for them. Wolves aren't in great shape either
