Liverpool

After losing miserably to Aston Villa, the Reds have played brilliantly in the past five games. They are now in second place behind Tottenham Hotspur. The Jurgen Klopp-mentored side is riding on a five-game unbeaten run, highlighted by a 3-0 victory over Leicester City. The defending champions played without leading goalscorer Mohamed Salah, and yet they showed their offensive superiority. After securing a 1-0 lead, thanks to an own goal by Leicester booter Jonny Evans, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino scored two more for the Reds. Liverpool also dominated possession as they held on to the ball for 56% of the 90-minute ballgame. They also recorded 24 shots (13 of them on goal). Their defense was able to limit the Foxes to just 11 shots (four on goal). Alisson notched his second clean sheet this season and recorded four saves. 

Players to Watch: Mohamed Salah (8 goals, 0 assists); Sadio Mane (4 goals, 1 assist); Diogo Jota (4 goals, 0 assists); Roberto Firmino (2 goals, 2 assists); Andy Robertson (1 goal, 3 assists).

Wolverhampton Wanderers

The Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to score an upset against Liverpool. This will end their two-game winless drought. In their last game against Southampton, the Wolves needed a late Pedro Neto goal to salvage a draw. The result helped Wolverhampton avoid a second consecutive loss. Despite having more shots than Southampton (20-9), they only kept the ball for 45% of the entire match. This lackluster defensive stance against Southampton could lead to something worst. Especially when playing against Liverpool, who loves to pounce on every offensive opportunity given to them. Wolves’ goalkeeper Rui Patricio should be solid on the pipes to stand a chance. Its defensive line must help Patricio to fend off Liverpool’s offensive incursions. In offense, the team must look for openings on Liverpool’s defense and give forward Raul Jimenez space to operate and score.

Players to Watch: Raul Jimenez (4 goals, 0 assists); Pedro Neto (2 goals, 2 assists); Daniel Podence (1 goal, 2 assists); Romain Saliss (1 goal, 0 assists); Rayan Ait Nouri (1 goal, 0 assists).
