Wolves vs LiverpoolEnglish Premier League, KO: 20:00 Jan 23, 2020, Molineux
LIVERPOOL'S quest for the title is turning into a coronation procession and there's now talk of them following in the footsteps of Arsenal's Invincibles by going an entire Premier League season unbeaten.
Jurgen Klopp's men swatted aside Manchester United at the weekend to make it 64 points out of a possible 66 this term so I wouldn't rule out the Reds going the distance without suffering a defeat.
But a trip to Molineux is one of the trickiest fixtures they will face and Wolves showed all their class by coming from 2-0 down to beat in-form Southampton 3-2 at the weekend.
These sides faced off at Anfield last month and only a Sadio Mane goal separated them, with VAR controversially ruling out a leveller from Wolves kid Pedro Neto.
So while Liverpool should keep their unbeaten run going, I wouldn't be too surprised if they had to settle for a point against Nuno Espirito Santo's impressive side.
How the bookies view it
Backing that stalemate pays 3/1 at Marathonbet while Wolves are as big as 21/4 with Sportingbet. Liverpool are a best 4/6 with Marathonbet but the odds increase to 9/5 with Unibet for a win to nil, which has come up in their last seven games.
Our man Slips Tips cashed in by backing the Reds to be winning at half-time and full-time against Manchester United and a repeat here pays 8/5 at Bet365.
Recent head to head
Liverpool crashed out of the FA Cup at Molineux last season but Klopp rested some key players in that game and the Reds won 2-0 when they came calling in the Premier League (below).
Their last eight meetings in the Premier League have ended in victories for Liverpool, although Wolves have beaten them twice in the FA Cup in the last three years.
Players to watch
Mane has netted three times in his last two outings against Wolves and appeals at 6/4 with Unibet for another goal here. The Senegalese striker has 15 goals for the season and was unlucky not to add to his tally against Manchester United.
I thought Adama Traore was overpriced at 8/1 for a Wolves goal at Anfield and the winger is 6/1 with Paddy Power to net here. But he's more likely to deliver an assist after setting up two goals at Southampton. That hasn't been priced up yet but I'll keep my eyes peeled.
Anything else catch the eye?
There was just one booking when these sides last faced off so the odds on a card for most players here are pretty decent. Wolves full-back Matt Doherty is 6/1 with Paddy Power which appeals as he will be up against the pacy Mane. Likewise, Andrew Robertson faces the lightning quick Traore and looks good value at 5/1 with Unibet.
Wolves won six corners to Liverpool's five at Anfield last month, so the 23/10 888Sport offer on them repeating the trick at home looks decent value.
