High-flyers Liverpool are due to face off against Wolverhampton Wanderers in a Premier League clash at Molineux on Thursday night, with the Merseysiders looking to extend their lead at the to of the table.

The Reds will be overwhelming favourites to win the game and to record their 22nd league win of the campaign.

Liverpool can however ill-afford to take Nuno Espirito Santo’s side lightly.

Wolves were one of the only sides this season to have given Jurgen Klopp’s champions in waiting a run for their money in the league.

The two sides met in a Premier League clash last month with the Reds narrowly winning 1-0.

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho could be set to be handed a league start for the first time since November, according to BBC.

The report added that Dejan Lovren has returned to Reds training whilst Naby Keita and James Milner will remain out of action.

Even though Liverpool will be the overwhelming favourites, they cannot rest on their laurels or afford to get complacent.

Wolves do have somewhat of a reputation when it comes to causing upsets against the bigger sides in the league.

They are also currently in sixth position on the league standings and will be pushing for as many wins as possible between now and the end of the season in order to try and attain a top four finish.

Liverpool may well be tested during the game but if they get the basics right, they will probably find a way and win as they have been doing to virtually all teams this season.

It could be an intense game though, especially if Wolves shoot better than they did when the sides met last month.
