Liverpool vs Wolves – Liverpool huge favourites to beat Wolves
Mick McCarthy’s Wolves side may not have been bottom at Christmas, but they are certain to be involved in a relegation fight at the end of the season and a loss to Liverpool will put them in serious trouble heading into the New Year.
Liverpool’s home form has kept them in the top half of the table this season and the Liverpool fans will expect their side to win this game comfortably, although should Roy Hodgson fail to lead his side to a victory, his position as manager will be under immense scrutiny.
Wolves have never beaten Liverpool in the Premier League and Roy Hodgson’s side are 2/7 to win and ensure that record continues.
The two Premier League games that have taken place at Anfield both finished with Liverpool taking the three points, but Wolves can take heart from the fact that they have earned two draws at Molineux.
The draw may be the best result Wolves fans can hope for and is priced at 9/2, although those Wolves fans who believe an upset is on the cards can back McCarthy’s side at 9/1.
Liverpool’s last two league home games have ended in a 3-0 victory and Maxi Rodriguez got a goal in both of those games.
Liverpool are 13/2 to make it three 3-0 home wins in a row and Maxi is 11/4 to score at any time.
Wolves have managed just five goals on the road this season and Liverpool should keep their sixth clean sheet of the season – Hodgson’s side are 8/11 to keep a clean sheet and 1/1 to win to nil.
Fernando Torres is the obvious candidate to score the first goal but hasn’t scored in his last four starts leaving Dirk Kuyt, 6/5 to score any time, the better bet.
A £10 stake on Maxi scoring first and Liverpool winning 2-0 would return £330. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
