Premier League Match Preview: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Liverpool

Wolves look to have found their groove again after three successive wins following a six-match winless run. On home turf, they aren’t to be underestimated having beaten Chelsea and Molineux and held Manchester City in front of their own fans this season.

Liverpool returned to the top of the Premier League with a 3-1 win over Manchester United last time out and they remain the only unbeaten side in the league this season. The Reds have kept a clean sheet in their last three visits to Molineux, though this’ll be the first clash between the pair in the Midlands since 2012.

The Reds will be confident of spending Christmas day at the top of the table and should come away with another vital three points in Friday’s match.
