Liverpool are back from their overseas adventures in the World Club Cup and will be determined to pick up where they left off in the Premier League. They are hot favourites to win the league but must deal with a busy festive period and go into 2020 with a cushion over the chasing pack.
A Closer Look
All eyes will be on this match, followers of the Premier League looking to see if the reds can get the home win that is expected of them. Wolves know they are up against it here but will set up to make life as difficult as possible for their opponents. If they can keep the scores low during the opening exchanges and silence the crowd, that will increase their chances of causing an upset.
Liverpool have barely put a foot wrong in their quest to end an extended Premier League title drought. If the campaign was to end here, they would capture the trophy and be considered deserving champions by everyone, including Man City who will know they threw it away.
The Season’s in Reds’ Hands
There’s still plenty of football to be played and we know anything can happen between now and the flag. What Liverpool must do is continue to pick up points, Man City must go on a long winning run and punish any mistakes made by the pace setters. This is in the reds hands and at the halfway stage of the season fans really couldn’t have asked for any better.
The locals will win this match with a bit to spare and send out a message to the chasing pack – they mean business and will not be moved. We expect to see Liverpool in a fair share of accumulators for this round of fixtures.
