Liverpool vs. Wolves: Premier League – Match Preview & Predictions

Two of the top seven meet on Sunday as second placed Liverpool welcome Wolves to Anfield.

Liverpool conceded a late equaliser in their 1-1 draw with Brighton, as they were frustrated by a Pascal Gross penalty.

They did progress in the Champions League though, with Curtis Jones’ winner enough to see them beat Ajax.

Wolves’ 2-1 win over Arsenal was overshadowed by a horrific injury to striker Raul Jimenez, with the forward fracturing his skull in a collision with David Luiz.

Goals from Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence secured a famous win for Wolves at the Emirates.

Alisson will miss around a fortnight and following a good performance in midweek, Caoimhin Kelleher is likely to be favoured ahead of Adrian.

Naby Keita and Trent Alexander-Arnold are back in training but may not return, whilst Andy Robertson and Jordan Henderson are doubts following injuries in midweek.
