Liverpool vs Wolves
English FA Cup
Date: 7 January 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Anfield (Liverpool).

Julen Lopetegui got off to a great start to his Wolves’ reign as his new team picked up back-to-back wins over Gillingham (2-0 in the League Cup) and Everton (1-2 in the Premier League).

The road win over direct relegation rivals Everton was particularly important as it moves Wolverhampton away from the very foot of the Premier League standings.

Nevertheless, the team failed to continue this streak on the last day of 2022 when they fell 0-1 at home to Manchester United.

They had another tough fixture on Wednesday evening against in-form Aston Villa (led by Unai Emery) and they are now looking ahead of the toughest match yet since Lopetegui’s men travel to Anfield to battle Liverpool for a place in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

To make things worse for Wolverhampton, Liverpool had two additional days of rest and they will also go into this very motivated to get a result after a disappointing showing in the 3-1 loss at Brentford on Monday night.

Also, the Reds do not have a League Cup fixture scheduled in mid-week (unlike Wolves), meaning we should not expect Jurgen Klopp to make too many rotations in his starting lineup ahead of this tie.

This match is a fantastic chance for Darwin Nunez to try and boost up his confidence after missing bountiful opportunities in the recent Premier League fixtures.
