The Reds are currently occupying seventh spot in the English top tier standings, having collected 36 points from 23 games, nine adrift of the top-four.
Liverpool play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Premier League fixture at Anfield on Tuesday night. It will be the fourth meeting between these two sides this year. Both clubs are heading into the match on the back of draws in their previous outings last weekend, with the hosts held to a goalless draw away to Crystal Palace, while Wolves played out a 1-1 draw against Fulham. As of now, the Reds are occupying seventh spot in the English top tier standings, having collected 36 points from 23 games, nine adrift of the top-four. The visitors, meanwhile, have played an extra game, and are languishing at the 15th position, with 24 points to their name, just three clear of the relegation zone.

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 the Eagles came up with a stubborn defensive performance and both sides played out a lacklustre 0-0 draw on Saturday night. Jurgen Klopp’s side rattled the woodwork thrice through Diogo Jota, Jean-Philippe Mateta and Mohamed Salah, but neither side looked like scoring in the capital. Liverpool’s last Premier League-win came against Newcastle United on February 18, courtesy of first-half efforts from Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo. It was their 10th top flight victory of the season. Meanwhile, Klopp’s side have collected 10 points from the last 12 on offer at Anfield.
Wolves, on the other hand, have lost just once in their last seven league-games on the road, while collecting nine points during those travels. Last time out, the Wanderers shared the spoils against Fulham, despite taking the lead through Pablo Sarabia’s 23rd-minute effort at the Craven Cottage. Substitute Manor Solomon curled home a delightful equaliser with 64-minutes on the clock. Wolves have recorded six wins, as many draws and 12 defeats from 24 league-games this season.

Roberto Firmino might come into the starting eleven , joining Salah and Gakpo in the front-three. As for Wolves, Cunha, Hwang Hee-Chan, Sasa Kalajdzic and Chiquinho are occupying the treatment room. Jimenez might lead the line, with Sarabia and Adama Traore in support.
