Liverpool are set to play Wolverhampton Wanderers for the fourth time this year, when they clash at Anfield in a Premier League fixture on Wednesday night. The reverse fixtures on February 4 ended 3-0 in favour of the Wolves, courtesy of  Joel Matip’s early own goal and one goal each from Craig Dawson and Ruben Neves. Meanwhile, both clubs are heading into the match on the back of draws in their previous outings last Saturday. The hosts were held to a goalless draw against Crystal Palace, while Wolves played out a 1-1 draw away to Fulham. 

Liverpool are currently occupying seventh spot in the English top flight standings, having collected  36 points from 23 games, nine points adrift of the top-four. After being thrashed 5-2 by Real Madrid at Anfield in the UEFA Champions League last week, the Reds traveled to Selhurst Park, hoping to shake off the cobwebs. But both sets of supporters left the stadium without getting their money’s worth. Jurgen Klopp’s side struck the woodwork thrice through Diogo Jota, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Mohamed Salah. Meanwhile, Klopp’s side have collected 10 points from the last 12 on offer at Anfield. Their last win came against Newcastle in the top flight on February 18, courtesy of first-half efforts from Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo. It was the Red’s 10th league-win of the campaign.

Wolves, on the other hand, have lost just once in their last seven top flight games on the road, while collecting nine points during those travels. Last time out, the Wanderers went ahead at the Craven Cottage, through Pablo Sarabia’s 23rd-minute effort. But the Cottagers managed to find the equaliser in the second half, courtesy of substitute Manor Solomon’s delightful curler with 64 minutes on the clock. Wolves have recorded six wins, as many draws and 12 defeats to collect 24 points, just three clear of the relegation zone.
