Wolves at the Molineaux is the latest obstacle in the path for defending champions Liverpool as they work their way towards a top four finish.
Three months ago, this fixture was played in front a few thousand fans who watched on in approval as the Reds ran wild en route to a 4-0 win. It was a win that lifted them level on top of the league.
Monday night is a different prospect entirely as Liverpool start in eighth place and in a terrible run of form. A Champions League win over RB Leipzig was a rare highlight as Jurgen Klopp’s men immediately followed that up with a 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Fulham.
The bigger picture is as bleak with Liverpool losing nine games in the league so far including six in a row at home. The visitors will start with some confidence as their hosts are winless in three.
Diogo Jota is likely to start against his former side with Roberto Firmino under an injury cloud. Crucially for Liverpool, it appears Fabinho will be retained in his more accustomed role in the centre of the field.
Picking a winner is difficult with both sides out of sorts. Liverpool are starting tonight eight points behind Chelsea, who are in fourth albeit having played an extra game.
The match kicks off at 10pm.
Suggested bet: Both teams to score at 1.94
