Liverpool vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers 2019/20 EPL betting

  • When: Sunday, December 29 – 4:30p.m Local time
  • Where: Anfield, Liverpool, United Kingdom

Liverpool’s charge towards their long awaited 19th league title continues this weekend when they play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the English Premier League. The Reds headed into Christmas top of the league on 49 points, doing so for the fifth time in the Premier League era. Despite the milestone, Liverpool supporters remain cautious of the fact that the Reds have lost the title all four previous times they went into Christmas at the summit of the league, surrendering the title to Manchester United in 1996/97 and 2008/09, and to Manchester City in the 2013/14 and 2018/19 campaigns.

Nonetheless, this has been unlike any other season for the Merseyside club which greatly advanced their chances of securing the Premier League crown by steering 13 points clear of second-placed Leicester City following an impressive 4-0 drubbing of the Foxes on Boxing Day.

Even more impressive about the outcome is the fact that Jurgen Klopp’s side has established the 13-point lead within a game in hand, having spent last weekend in Qatar for the FIFA Club World Cup competition—a title they clinched to add onto their increasingly growing trophy collection.

Wolverhampton Wanderers continued with their impressive campaign following an emphatic 3-2 win over champions Manchester City on Friday night in the English Premier League. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side’s without question delivered the final blow to City’s hopes of clinching the league title for the third successive time, as the defeat at the Etihad leaves Pep Guardiola’s side third on 38 points—a staggering 14 points behind leaders Liverpool. Wolves on the other hand are now within touching distance of the top four, as they are just two points behind Chelsea in fourth and 22 points behind their opponents for this weekend.

With Liverpool’s participation in several competitions this season, it’s no surprise that Jurgen Klopp is sweating over the fitness of several players. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been ruled out of the match with an ankle injury suffered during the Club World Cup final, while Dejan Lovren is expected to be out of action for at least one month due to a muscle problem.
Jordan Henderson seemed to have hurt his shin during the win over Leicester City, but the skipper could feature against Wolves this weekend. Joel Matip and Nathaniel Clyne however remain sidelined on a long term basis with knee injuries, with Fabinho also set to miss the action with an ankle injury.

Liverpool’s success in 2019 can be attributed to the fluid and expeditious nature of the attacking trio of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah. The three forwards have contributed a total of 32 goals thus far this season, with Brazilian striker Roberto Firmino scoring eight of those. The good thing about having such an abundance of attacking might is that one of the players normally takes up the responsibility of producing the goals whenever any of the others have a minor dip in form. Such is the case for Firmino, whose four goals in the last three games gives him an extra spring in his step ahead of this weekend’s tie.

Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers EPL Betting Prediction

Wolves will be in high spirits ahead of their trip to Anfield, with Friday’s victory over Manchester City securing their Premier League double over the champions. For all their impressive, exponential growth under Nuno Espirito Santo that has seen them advance into the last 32 of the Europa League and climb all the way to fifth on the EPL table, Wolves are simply no match for Liverpool.

The Reds have lost only once in the Premier League in 2019, and look set to uphold their rich vein of form against Wolverhampton Wanderers this Sunday.
