Liverpool: The Reds have had a busy schedule as of late, and it will be interesting to see if any players are rested here. Manchester City’s loss to Wolves gives Liverpool a bit of breathing room, but Jurgen Klopp likely won’t chance it, going with two of his top three in attack. This is a game that feels like a trap game, but expect Liverpool to come out sharp as always in search of three points.
Wolverhampton: They almost have to rest players, don’t they? This team just played on Friday against City, leaving less than 48 hours to get ready for this game. It’s almost unfair, and playing too many starters just risks injury and poor form. Expect plenty of rotation for Nuno’s men.
Liverpool vs. Wolverhampton prediction
The Reds look sluggish, but not at sluggish as Wolves as they get a goal in each half to earn all three points.
Pick: Liverpool 2, Wolves 0
