Premier League Preview: Wolves vs. Liverpool
- Wolves on three-match PL win streak
- Away team has won 4 of 5 since 2010
- Liverpool leads all-time 49W-17D-35L
Liverpool heads to the Molineux Stadium for the first time since 2012 when it puts its undefeated Premier League season on the line against Wolves on Friday (Watch live at 3 p.m. ET Friday on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com).
Wolves can go sixth with a win, and it would be the latest impressive result for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men. They’ve beaten Chelsea, and drawn against Spurs, Man City, and Manchester United.
Not only that, but Wolves are 1-0 all-time against Jurgen Klopp, upsetting the Reds at Anfield in the fourth round of the 2016-17 FA Cup.
Both teams are much better now, and Liverpool will be heavy favorites to take three points on Friday due to an advantage in defense.
What they’re saying
Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren on an unbeaten season: “Hopefully we can be unbeaten until the end of the season. That is why we came to Liverpool. Arsenal did it before so why not?”
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo on facing Liverpool: “They are on top of the league, that says a lot. We’re going to face one of the best teams in Europe at the moment, but we look forward to it. We will require a lot, it’s a big challenge against a fantastic team, with fantastic players and a fantastic manager. What a game.”
Wolves get themselves a goal, but so do the Reds. Both keep unbeaten runs alive in a 1-1 draw.
