Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking for back-to-back victories after winning at Southampton on Saturday.

Leaders Liverpool, who won the reverse fixture 1-0 in December, are targeting their 14th consecutive Premier League triumph.

Team news

Wolves have both Willy Boly and Diogo Jota back in contention, but Ruben Vinagre faces a spell on the sidelines after a scan confirmed tendon damage.

Dejan Lovren has returned to training for Liverpool but they will be without James Milner (knock), Naby Keita (groin) and Xherdan Shaqiri (calf).

Wolves are unbeaten in their last seven evening home kick-offs in the Premier League (7pm or later). They have won five and drawn two such matches since a 2-0 loss against Crystal Palace in January 2019.

This will be Wolves’ first ever Premier League match on a Thursday. Meanwhile, Liverpool have won just 25 per cent of their Premier League matches on this day, with two out of eight. It is their lowest win-rate on a specific day in the competition’s history. 

Liverpool are unbeaten in league matches at Wolves since August 1981. They have won three and drawn three of their six visits to Molineux since, keeping a clean sheet in each of the last four.

Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in 88 goals in 93 Premier League matches for Liverpool, with 65 strikes and 23 assists.
