Free tips FA Cup: Liverpool v Wolves Preview and Betting Tips (12:30pm, Saturday)

Paul Lambert’s Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to replicate their surprise 3rd round win at Stoke City as they travel to Anfield to face a Liverpool side who have recently looked out-of-sorts.

We take you through our predictions and betting tips for one of the most intriguing ties of the 4th round FA Cup draw.


Liverpool v Wolves Past meetings

This will be the first clash between these two sides in five years following the Midlands side relegation in 2012, and whilst Liverpool won the past two meetings at Molineux 3-0, Wolves fans will fondly remember their 1-0 victory at Anfield back in December 2010 when Stephen Ward scored the game’s only goal. Whilst they lost the other three of their most recent visits to Liverpool, two of those were only by a single goal.


Liverpool v Wolves Stats

Liverpool are on a run of one win in six fixtures and Saturday’s defeat at the hands of Swansea was their first home loss in a year.

Wolves may be struggling in 18th in the Championship but their strength has come away from home – where they have won 17 points – the best 10th travelling record in the league, while only Wigan Athletic have won fewer home points.


Liverpool v Wolves Team News

Liverpool will continue to be without Sadio Mane due to his participation in the African Cup of Nations for Senegal. Danny Ings and Adam Bogdan are the only long-term absentees, while Jordan Henderson is expected to return despite recent fitness concerns.

Michal Zyro – injured since April – will miss out for Wolves, as will suspended goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.

Reason for Liverpool v Wolves betting tips

Liverpool are experiencing their worst run of form all season, by a distance. Frustrated by League Two Plymouth at Anfield, they can count themselves fortunate to still be in the draw following a particularly uncomfortable replay where they scrapped a 1-0 victory. Squad fragility and an apparent drop in energy levels and ideas have become apparent in recent weeks.

Furthermore, Liverpool will have only 62 hours of rest between the conclusion of their second leg League Cup semi final with Southampton and this fixture, which will mean a tired and heavily rotated squad.

Wolves can cease advantage of this and whilst a win would still go down as a sensational result, a draw and a replay are much more likely outcomes. Their away form is strong and reliable and they will have few absentees for this one, and the odds of 28/5 are pretty remarkable considering the context of Liverpool’s build-up.

Helder Costa – the highly rated Portuguese youth international on loan from Benfica who had spells with Deportivo and Monaco – is the side’s top scorer with nine goals this campaign and he netted in the win at Stoke, with 17/4 of him doing the same at Anfield hugely tempting odds which are difficult to turn down.
