Wolverhampton will entertain Liverpool on Friday night at the Molineux in the first game of round 18 of the Premier League. Both sides are on a good form of late and each have won their last three games across all competitions.
Wolverhampton vs Liverpool Head to Head
The first game between these opponents was played some more than 120 years ago – a 3-1 win for the Wolves in 1894! Surprisingly or not, the last meeting also ended in a win with the same score for the Friday hosts. Otherwise Liverpool hold a positive record, having won 49, drew 17 and lost 35 in the 101 games played so far. In the last three Premier League games played on Molineux, Liverpool have kept a clean sheet and won twice 0-3, while the other game ended scoreless.
Wolverhampton vs Liverpool Stats
The weekend win against Bournemouth meant that for the first time this season, the Wolves manage to win three games in a row in the Premier League. In the two most recent games, Wolverhampton needed goals deep into stoppage time to secure their victories. First it was Doherty, who won the game against Newcastle in the 94th minute, and on Saturday it was Cavaleiro, again in the 94th minute who put the game beyond Bournemouth’s reach. Prior to these wins, Wolverhampton managed to earn just one draw in their 6 previous meetings, losing five of them. Raul Jimenez is the team top performer and his stats so far show 5 goals scored and 4 assists. Defender Matt Doherty has established himself as a regular starter and aided his team exploits with 3 goals and 3 assists.
The league leaders Liverpool are flying high and they will be desperate to add to their six game winning streak in the Premier League. Fresh from the win against rivals Manchester United on the weekend, the Merseysiders boost the best defensive record in the league, having conceded just 7 goals and Alisson’s howler in the recent game, just comes to show how difficult it is to score against Liverpool and that you need some luck in doing so. Xherdan Shaqiri came off the bench to score a quick brace and win the last game for his team and his heroics might earn him a place in the starting 11. Mohamed Salah is the league top goalscorer so far with 10 goals to his name.
