In the upcoming Round 5 of the much-anticipated Premier League, a thrilling clash awaits at the Molineux Stadium as Wolverhampton Wanderers face off against Liverpool.
As things stand in the Premier League rankings, Wolverhampton Wanderers find themselves in a bit of a struggle. They currently occupy the fifteenth spot, with just one victory out of four matches played. After a disheartening loss to Crystal Palace, there was a glimmer of hope when Cunha managed to score a last-second goal. However, it was too little, too late to prevent Wolves from suffering their third loss this year.
On the flip side, Liverpool are riding high with an undefeated record, winning three out of their first four games. In their latest match, they delivered a commanding 3-0 victory against Aston Villa at home. The Villans were simply overwhelmed by goals from Dominik Szoboszlai, Mohamed Salah, and an unfortunate own goal by Matty Cash. The top bookmakers in India have fantastic Premier League odds with them.
Salah's recent performance on the pitch has been mesmerizing, consistently dazzling fans with his skills.
The betting tip is...
Salah to score a goal
Last month, Wolverhampton Wanderers faced a tough defeat, losing 4-1 to Brighton & Hove Albion, which put an end to their impressive streak of five consecutive Premier League home victories. They did have a decent finish to August with two wins in different competitions but suffered a 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace earlier this month.
The good news is that currently, only Joseph Hodge is sidelined due to a thigh injury, so manager Gary O'Neil doesn't have to worry about any major injury concerns. However, it's worth noting that they've struggled to find the back of the net in six out of their last eight Premier League home games against Liverpool.
Hee-Chan Hwang is expected to start against Liverpool.
Predicted Lineup: Sa, Lemina, Gomes, Neto, Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Bueno, Kalajdzic, Silva, Sarabia
The Reds' captain, Virgil van Dijk, won't be able to play. This is because he received an additional one-game suspension for his behavior towards referees during the Newcastle United match, which led to his red card.
Darwin Nunez is uncertain for the upcoming game as he needs a late fitness test after returning from international duty with a muscle issue. We also have some uncertainty surrounding the availability of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, and Ibrahima Konate.
Diogo Jota is expected to start against Wolves.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Robertson, Endo, Jones, Szoboszlai, Gakpo, Salah, Jota, Gomez
Liverpool have been in outstanding form recently, hitting new highs. With the explosive combination of Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah, the Reds have a potent attacking force that can take apart any opponent.
Wolves, on their best days, have shown they can deliver a strong performance and have surprised us several times this season. However, Liverpool has a stronger squad with exceptional talent and tactical expertise. This makes them the clear favorites to win this thrilling match.
