Wolves vs Liverpool: Wolves, who haven’t been performing at the highest level this season, will be looking forward to getting a win against the high-flying Liverpool.

Wolves vs Liverpool Preview

The Wolves could not contain Crystal Palace in a five-goal thriller that saw the Eagles score three goals and the Wolves settle for two.

It was a nice performance from the Wolves, but the poorness at the back made it a horrible day for them on September 3, 2023.

There was no single goal in the first half, with both teams coming close to getting the first goal.

However, in the 56th minute of the second half, Crystal Palace striker Odsonne Édouard put the game ahead in a fashionable manner.

A few minutes after Crystal Palace’s first goal, Wolverhampton Wanderers Hwang Hee-Chan equalized for the club.

Due to the sloppy pass in the Wolves center half, Crystal Palace Eberechi Eze scored the second goal for the Eagles.

The third goal came for Crystal Palace as striker Edouard extended the lead between Crystal Palace and Wolves.

However, Wolves kept on pushing in a bid to get an equalizer, but they were able to get a second goal in the extra minute of the second half.

Since Spanish manager Julen Lopetegui left Wolves, getting wins has been difficult in the Premier League. They currently sit in 15th place on the table with one win in four matches.

They are struggling under the current manager, Gary O’Neil, whose job may be under serious questioning if he doesn’t start winning matches.

Liverpool, on the other hand, look like title contenders for the 2023–24 season. They have been playing a well-composed style of play, which is totally different from last season.

The signings of Alexis MacAllister and Dominik Szoboszlai had made Liverpool one of the toughest teams to play against in the Premier League.

The Liverpool team defeated Unai Emery with a 3-0 win. The new signing from RB Leipzig put the team ahead in the 3rd minute of the encounter.

The Liverpool side kept on pressing, and they had Aston Villa defender Matty Cash score an own goal before the end of the first half.

Mohamed Salah, who was at that time facing uncertainty about his career, scored in the 55th minute to end Aston Villa’s hope of coming back into the game.

However, the Wolves last win against Liverpool at home happened in the Premier League on February 4, 2023.

Liverpool have been dominant in the last five matches against Wolves, winning three matches coupled with a draw and a loss.
