Wolves v Liverpool
BETTING & MATCH PREVIEW
On Monday night, Wolves and Liverpool go head-to-head in the third round of the FA Cup.
Wolves head into this clash in the midst of a mixed run of form in the Premier League. However, the home side are comfortably in midtable, so can enjoy this high profile encounter.
The team from the Midlands have a poor recent record in the FA Cup, having won just two of their last 14 matches in the competition. They have also failed to win in their last three FA Cup games.
Wolves recent games in the competition have also been low scoring, with five their last six matches in the FA Cup producing under 2.5 goals.
The home side has a poor recent home record in the FA Cup, failing to win in six matches while suffering four defeats in 90 minutes and one in extra-time.
Liverpool will be looking to bounce back quickly from their 2-1 defeat at title rivals Manchester City last time out.
The Reds actually have a sketchy recent record in the FA Cup, losing two of their last three matches in the competition, including a 2-1 fourth-round defeat at Anfield against Monday night’s opponents in 2017.
The Merseysiders have also won just one of their last four away games in the FA Cup. The visitors have managed to score in their previous 13 FA Cup matches on their travels, though, a record that is likely to continue at Molineux.
Wolves have doubts over the fitness of attacking midfielder Diogo Jota and defender Romain Saiss.
Liverpool will once again be without defenders Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, as well as midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain due to injury. Jurgen Klopp may rotate his squad, with Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge both options to start the game.
