Why you should back Liverpool
The Reds are 16-4-1 in all competitions this season, with a 3-2 setback to West Ham last month the only blemish. They have scored 63 goals in the 21 games and conceded 17, with 12 clean sheets. They lead the EPL with 43 goals and have allowed 12, tied for third-fewest. They also have a sizable lead in shots (269) and shots on target (91) and rank second in possession (62.8 percent). The combinations of Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson on the right and Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold on the left have bedeviled opposing defenses all season.
Salah leads the Premier League in goals (13) and assists (eight), while Mane has scored seven times. Alexander-Arnold (seven assists) and Robertson (four) bombard the box with crosses, and striker Diogo Jota has been on fire. He is filling in for the injured Robert Firmino and has eight league goals, with four in the past three games. Wolves will have a tough time cracking a defense featuring Virgil Van Djik and Joel Matip in front of Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson (seven clean sheets). The Reds have won the last nine league meetings between the teams.
Why you should back Wolves
The success for Wolverhampton so far has come from its defending. It has yielded just 12 goals in its 14 matches, tied with Liverpool for third-fewest in the league, and the fourth-fewest shots (154). Portuguese goalkeeper Jose Sa is second in the league with an 82.4 save percentage and has five clean sheets, including two in a row. Conor Coady, Romain Saiss and Max Kilman are the back three in front of Sa, and Nelson Semendo and Rayan Ait-Nouri play the wing-back roles. Semendo is seventh in the league in tackles (37) and tied for fifth in tackles won (26).
Wolves got a big boost when Raul Jimenez returned this season from a life-threatening skull fracture suffered in an accidental collision last year against Arsenal. The Mexican striker had 30 goals over the previous two seasons before playing just 10 matches last season. He has three goals and two assists, and South Korean Hwang Hee-chan has a team-high four goals. Adama Traore has the speed to cause problems for Liverpool, but he has struggled to finish his chances. Wolves has taken 10 points from its last four home games, conceding two goals.
