The momentum gained from Liverpool’s back-to-back Premier League (PL) wins over Everton and Newcastle seemed short-lived as their disjointed season continued with a lacklustre 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace at the weekend.
That result means Liverpool have now failed to score in four of their last six PL matches, somewhat hindering their attempts at recovery as they sit in seventh place and nine points adrift of the top four, though they do possess two games in hand.
The Reds have at least coupled those recent poor offensive displays with some improved defensive performances, having kept three consecutive league clean sheets for the first time this season.
That accumulation of shutouts started after their embarrassing 3-0 thumping at the hands of opponents Wolverhampton Wanderers, whom they now face for the fourth time already this year (W1, D1, L1).
But with Liverpool losing just one of their last 34 home PL matches (W25, D8), revenge will be firmly on the mind of the Kop.
Wolves themselves seemed to be on the right track after consecutive wins over Liverpool and Southampton alleviated some relegation pressure, only for them to falter by losing 1-0 to Bournemouth before then following that up with a 1-1 draw against Fulham last time out.
That leaves Julen Lopetegui’s men just three points above those in the drop zone, although that perhaps isn’t a fair reflection given 14 of their 24 points have come during the Spaniard’s nine PL games in charge.
The men from Molineux now journey to Merseyside with history to make, as they seek their first league double over the Reds since 1950/51.
However, Anfield has largely been an unforgiving hunting ground, where Wolves have often been the prey and not the predator, losing 18 of their last 20 league visits (W2).
