Liverpool made a blunder midweek as the crashed out at the hands of Southampton but fortunately for the Reds, they have a chance of redemption as they have a take on Wolves in the 4th round of the FA Cup in front of a home crowd at Anfield.

Wolves have made a pretty long run for their standards and it is surprising that they have gotten as far as they have. The main reason for this is their home crowd and this weekend they will have to go into battle without them. This alone will be tough for them but adding the fact that they will be up against Liverpool, it will make the task that much harder.

Liverpool on the other hand have slipped a bit in recent weeks and Klopp and his men will see this as the perfect opportunity to get a win on the board and get the team back in the right direction of winning. This side has a good defense, a solid midfield and some of the most talent goal scorers in the world. The return of Henderson is a big boost and I think that will inspire the team going forward as he is a great leader. Having said all that, this should be an easy game for the Reds since they are a class above Wolves in quality and talent. Furthermore they have the home crowd behind them so I expect a walk in the park.

Having said all that, we are not getting a good enough price to make a wager on Liverpool to win outright so this is not a good option. That being said, we are still getting a good enough price to bet on the goal line and with the huge differences in the two sides, I am expecting a 3-0 or 3-1 win for Liverpool so I am safely predicting the over 2.5 goals and my bet for this game.

 

Pick:
Over 2.5 goals
