It’s far to say that last season’s Championship winners Wolverhampton Wanderers have taken to life in the top-flight like the proverbial duck to water, little surprise really given the massive investment that the club have received over the past year or two. They ran away with the Championship title last term and their ambitions of finishing 2018/19 in the top-half of the Premier League table aren’t overly-ambitious given that they currently sit slap-bang in the middle of the league table after twenty-one games.
Now that any possibility of relegation has largely disappeared, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo might well be looking to a decent cup run to add to what has thus far been an impressive season for the West Midlands side and following a period of somewhat shaky results on home soil, you can back Wolverhampton Wanderers to bounce back with a famous win over Liverpool at 31/10 with BetVictor Bookmakers.
As for Liverpool, they will be on cloud-nine right now despite the 2-1 defeat to Manchester City narrowing their lead at the top of the Premier League table to just four points. Jurgen Klopp’s men remain odds-on to lift the title at the end of the campaign and given that the Premier League title race will certainly be pretty draining when coupled with Champions League football, we can reasonably expect the Reds boss to ring plenty of changes in tonight’s cup clash.
Wolves do possess a host of threats in attack such as Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez, therefore we envisage them making life difficult for the league leaders, however even a second-string Liverpool will provide the hosts with plenty of difficulties and the Reds will likely edge this match in their favour this evening, William Hill Bookmakers going 13/5 on Liverpool to win and both teams to score.
