Wolves fan here
Just thought I'd share some of mine and Wolves fans views and thoughts towards this game. Even before the season started this game was the one that I was least looking forward to, because if even one of our defenders has an off day your attack will punish us. I was never worried about city, as we had a second team out against them in the cup last year and they didn't concede to city, as they couldn't really break us down. It hasn't been too long since we played you though, and the last time we did was a great day out as we managed a 2-1 win in the Cup at Anfield. To this day I still have no idea how, as we had a midfield trio of George Saville, Lee Evans and Dave Edwards.
Seems a long time ago now that we have the Portugese duo of Ruben Neves and Moutinho who ooze class.
We've been an odd team this season, but it seems we are finding our feet. Most of you saw Jota substituted off in the last game but the news is that it was just precaution and he is training all week.
So I'd expect our lineup to look something like this
Bennett Coady Boly
We've become more solid now that Jonny is back, who managed to earn himself a callup to the spain squad while playing for us.
My biggest worry is Matt Doherty, although he has been magnificent this season attacking, he doesn't really like getting back. And with your attacking options you could really punish us down that left hand side.
We lost to Huddersfield and Cardiff, that was when I thought it would all go pear shaped and thought Nuno was too stubborn, because teams had figured out how to beat us with out 3-4-3/5-2-3 formation. The easy way was "Mark the wingbacks and outnumber the two CM's"
However I'm glad to see Nuno lost his stubbornness and has brought a local youngster Morgan Gibbs-White in to the midfield playing behind the two strikers. MGW has been amazing, bossed the Chelsea game and well and truly made Kante look like a Sunday league player.
I would expect Liverpool's 3 in midfield to control us, although we really do step it up against better opposition. Saw one post on here talking about a 6-0 win. I wont get my hopes up on that, although I do expect you to win. I think this is a big game for Liverpool, one that could be critical for the title race seeing as we have taken points off all the other big teams and got robbed at Spurs, and with Vincent Kompany saying he knows that all the other sides will lose points at Molineux. A 4 point gap would be amazing for you guys, but for me personally I have ALOT of Liverpool mates so bragging rights would be great!
However this season we're just finding our feet, at Wolves for us it's all about the 'project' as Klopp mentioned too in his presser. We have the youngest squad in the league with a lot of good talent. So Whilst we're sitting in 7th place which is great for our first season, we do hope to put pressure on the top 6 soon, as ridiculous as it sounds. A young manager and young stars - if we stick together who knows!
As for this game, I'm not feeling too hopeful. But if you manage to get down to Molineux for the game I guarantee you an amazing atmosphere, and the way we both play football, an amazing game as Wolves have nothing to lose and this is a free hit.
Prediction - 3-1
Salah (2), VVD (We zonal mark on corners and VVD could punish us)
