After two Premiership losses in a row Liverpool certainly need a big result this weekend, not just to improve morale but also to keep the pressure on the top four. The only consolation would be that Liverpool lost to Stoke and Spurs away last season and still managed to finish sixth and there are plenty more results from last season that Liverpool can still improve upon in order to finish in the top four.
The odds on a top four finish underwent some major changes after the loss to Spurs, as you’d expect in an early six pointer, Liverpool are still favourites to get fourth and can be backed at 5/4 for a top four finish but there was a big move for Spurs who went from 4/1 in places to just 15/8. The bookies now think Arsenal will finish sixth as they are 9/4 for a top four finish.
As previously mentioned there are plenty of matches that Liverpool can get a better result in this season than last season in order to maintain a challenge for the top four and one match in particular is Wolves at home. Wolves won this match 1-0 last season in one of Roy Hodgson’s worst results and like Liverpool, Wolves head into this match after two straight league losses. Liverpool are favourites to continue a good home record though, Liverpool have lost just once in their last twelve home league games (Liverpool won eight of those) and are just 2/5 to beat Wolves and improve on last season by three points. The draw is priced up at 4/1 and another shock away win is as big as 9/1 at the time of writing.
What stands out from the three previous Premiership meetings between these two sides at Anfield is the low scores, Wolves won last year’s match 1-0 whilst Liverpool won the previous two games 2-0 and 1-0. That would suggest that under 2.5 goals looks a good bet at 11/10 at the time of writing, especially with Wolves failing to score in their last three Premiership outings. This also suggests that Liverpool should be backed to win to nil at 11/10 whilst 1-0 and 2-0 look the correct scores to concentrate on, both of those correct score outcomes are available at 6/1 at the time of writing.
