Liverpool vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 6 December 2020
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
The Reds are facing stiff competition this season in the title-race, especially by the reinvigorated Tottenham and Chelsea. As of now, the defending champions are placed second in the table, below the Spurs.
However, one huge positive news for Jurgen Klopp’s men is that their main rival for the EPL crown – the Citizens, are struggling to show the kind of dominance that they had asserted in the past few years.
Moreover, it’s unknown for how long Jose Mourinho’s men would hold on at the top, as the Spurs are known to bottle leads. The right course of action for the title-holders would be to hold composure, and keep going about their business as usual.
At one point or the other, the toppers will stumble.
This Sunday, the Reds welcome the Wanderers at Anfield. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been a bit inconsistent lately, and they also have an inferior h2h record against this opponent over the years.
As such, expect Liverpool to dominate proceedings this weekend at their home.
Liverpool vs Wolves: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Klopp’s men are on a three-match winning run against this rival.
- They had also registered nine of the former twelve overall wins.
- They had scored two or more goals in six of the preceding nine clashes.

Liverpool vs Wolves: Prediction
The reigning champions were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day on the road, by Brighton. In the meantime, the Wanderers recorded a 1-2 win on the road, against Arsenal.
Going on, the Reds were unbeaten in 10 of their former 11 overall match-ups, and they remained so in 21 of their past 23 fixtures. At home, they had won 10 of their preceding 11 appearances, and their only loss in the whole of 2020 at Anfield had come against Atalanta in the CL.
On the other hand, their counterparts were winless in six of their last ten overall match-ups, and in five of their former eight road trips.
Moreover, the six-time UCL winners also have a great h2h record against this rival, and particularly so at this venue. In addition, they also have scored the most number of goals in the competition till now in 2020-21.
By the looks of things, expect Liverpool to deliver a great performance this Sunday at the Anfield.
