Liverpool vs Wolverhampton WanderersEnglish Premier League, KO: 19:15 Dec 6, 2020, Anfield
Losing three key defenders would have seen many sides crumble but the Reds have ground out results in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Their only domestic defeat all season has been that shock 7-2 thrashing by Aston Villa but the Reds have probably drawn too many games for Jurgen Klopp's liking, the latest coming at Brighton last time out.
Klopp raged at the broadcasters for asking too much from tired players in the wake of that 1-1 stalemate, which saw a card tip come up for our man Slips Tips, after James Milner joined a growing injury list that also now includes keeper Alisson.
Juggling the demands of European and domestic football in such a packed schedule has been tough and Wolves will probably be happy they don't have Europa League football this term after a draining run last season.
They have also suffered a huge injury blow, with star striker Raul Jimenez fracturing his skull in the win over Arsenal, but head into this match in fine form, having lost just once in their last seven games.
How the bookies view it
Recent head to head
Wolves have inflicted two recent FA Cup defeats on Liverpool but their Premier League record against the Reds is much poorer. The last seven league meetings have all ended in Liverpool wins, with the last victory for the Molineux men coming a decade ago.
Last season, Klopp's side ground out a 1-0 victory at Anfield before winning 2-1 in the Midlands (below).
Players to watch
The Reds sealed a place in the Champions League last 16 earlier this week so Klopp (below) should field a strong side before resting players for their final Euro group game. Diogo Jota is going up against his old side and looks decent value at 6/4 with BetVictor for anytime scorer.
Jimenez will be a big miss for Wolves but they have plenty of other weapons. Daniel Podence scored a wonderful goal against Arsenal and looks a bit overpriced at 9/2 with Paddy Power for another here. The same firm have a strange bet of 6/5 on Podence having one or more right-foot shots on target and that looks tempting.
Anything else catch the eye?
With Liverpool having a makeshift defence and young keeper in Caoimhin Kelleher, you have to fancy Wolves to get a goal, which is priced 4/6 at William Hill. Backing both teams to score increases the odds to 17/20 with Betway.
I got my fingers burned backing a thriller when Liverpool faced Ajax in midweek, although Slips Tips did get some joy backing a Reds win and some cards. This might turn out to be a cagey game too. Three of the last four meetings have ended with a one-goal winning margin so I'm backing a repeat at 17/10 with Betway.
