Diogo Jota is facing his former team at Anfield, and here is my Liverpool vs. Wolves Preview as the rivals meet in Round 11 of the Premier League on Sunday.
Liverpool Recent Form & Team News
Unbeaten in six Premier League matches (W3, D3), Liverpool can take confidence from having beaten Wolves in all four league H2Hs since the latter won promotion in 2018. With a limited number of fans back at Anfield, Liverpool will be particularly eager to maintain their record of scoring in both halves in all five PL home matches so far this season.
Furthermore, Liverpool have a 100% record at home this PL season and set a new club record in the last round, recording their 64th PL home match in a row without defeat (W53, D11). Seven of their last ten Premier League home wins have seen both teams score, and eight of the ten featured at least three total goals.
Player to watch: Former Wolves man Diogo Jota scored his fourth goal in as many PL home matches for Liverpool in their last Premier League home outing.
Jurgen Klopp cannot count on Thiago Alcantara (knee), Alisson (muscle), Joe Gomez (knee), James Milner (thigh), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee), Xherdan Shaqiri (muscle), and Virgil van Dijk (knee).
Wolves Recent Form & Team News
Wolverhampton, meanwhile, recorded a strong win on the road against Arsenal in the last round. Consequently, they’ve lost just once across their last seven in the league (W4, D2), although the 2-1 win was the first of those to feature over 2.5 total goals. Subsequently, only four teams have scored fewer than their 11 goals to date.
Seventeen points from the opening ten matches is Wolves’ best top-flight start since 1979/80, and only Manchester United have won more PL away matches than their seven in the 2020 calendar year. Three wins and two defeats on the road so far have seen both teams score in just one, while the HT/FT result was mirrored in four as well.
Player to watch: A livewire for the visitors, Jota’s countryman Pedro Neto has netted in back-to-back Premier League matches for Wolves.
Hot stat: The total goals average of 2.2 per match from Wolves’ games is the second lowest entering this PL round.
Nuno Espirito Santo will be without Raul Jimenez (concussion) and Jonny (knee).
