Wolves vs Liverpool predictions: Reds to extend winning sequence
- Wolves have lost four of their last five league games
- Liverpool's last three results have been wins featuring at least three goals
- Recommended bet: Liverpool and over 2.5 goals
Liverpool are off to a decent start with 10 points in the bag and they will be looking to maintain their high standards when taking on struggling Wolves at Molineux.
Jurgen Klopp's side were impressive 3-0 winners at home to Aston Villa before the international break and seem to be coping well enough without Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, who were notable summer departures.
Wolves's main summer adjustment was in the dugout – with Gary O'Neil replacing Julen Lopetegui – and they have started slowly.
O'Neil's side have amassed just three points although they have been disadvantaged by playing three matches away from home.
Liverpool must cope without their captain Virgil van Dijk, who had his one-game suspension upgraded to two due to a poor reaction to being red-carded in the 2-1 success at Newcastle.
Ibrahima Konate and Trent Alexander-Arnold (both hamstring) are major doubts and there could be an opportunity for 20-year-old defender Jerell Quansah, who came on for Alexander-Arnold in the 3-0 victory at home to Aston Villa.
Midfielder Thiago Alcantara (groin) is unlikely to feature.
Wolves might be pondering one or two changes after their 3-2 loss at Crystal Palace but they have plenty of options with only midfielder Joe Hodge (thigh) stuck on the sidelines.
Wolves have lost four of their last five Premier League fixtures.
Each of Wolves' last six league wins have been accompanied by clean sheets.
Wolves picked up 13 points from their last five home matches last season but were beaten 4-1 by Brighton in their only home league fixture this term.
Liverpool are unbeaten in 15 Premier League games and have taken maximum points from each of the last three.
The Reds came from behind to win in two of their last three games.
Liverpool are five points better off than at the same stage of last season and their strong start can continue with a high-scoring victory away to Wolves.
The Reds were slow out of the blocks last season and never contended in the title race.
However, they put together an 11-match unbeaten run at the end of the campaign and have carried on where they left off.
Liverpool showed a strong mentality when coming from behind to win 2-1 at Newcastle last month, despite the 28th minute dismissal of Van Dijk.
The Reds also picked up a 1-1 draw at Chelsea and a return of four points from two tough road trips is an excellent sign for a team which registered just six away league wins over the entirety of last season.
Wolves are approaching games with a positive mindset, despite some poor results, and average 51.4% possession from their games so far, which is the seventh-highest in the division.
They are looking better in an attacking sense but have already shipped eight goals and could concede a few more against Liverpool, who look primed to extend their winning streak.
