As the Premier League season resumes after the international break, Liverpool are on a quest for their fourth consecutive victory. Jurgen Klopp's Reds have displayed their prowess by remaining unbeaten in the first four games, securing impressive wins even when down to 10 men against Newcastle and triumphing over Aston Villa. Their strong start has placed them in a commendable third position in the league standings.



In stark contrast, Wolverhampton Wanderers (Wolves) find themselves in a less enviable position. With three defeats in their opening four matches, they currently occupy the 15th spot in the league. New manager Gary O'Neil, who assumed his role just two days before the 2023/24 season's commencement, faces the daunting task of moulding his squad and reversing their early-season fortunes.

Match Details:

Date: Saturday, September 16, 2023

Kick-off Time: 12:30 PM BST

Venue: Molineux

Where to watch: For viewers in the UK, the game will be broadcast live on TNT Sports, with coverage starting at 11:30 AM.


Team News:

Wolverhampton Wanderers enter the match without any fresh injury concerns, with Joseph Hodge being the sole absentee due to a thigh injury.


On the other hand, Liverpool will be without their captain, Virgil van Dijk, who is serving a one-match ban for abusive language and behaviour directed towards a referee following his red card during the Newcastle win last month. According to reports, the fitness of key players, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, and Ibrahima Konate, will be assessed ahead of the game.



Prediction:

Liverpool enter the clash brimming with confidence and momentum, well aware that being the first game of the weekend allows them to seize the top spot in the Premier League with a victory at Molineux. Wolves have shown flashes of brilliance but have struggled for consistency, always posing a goal threat. Nevertheless, thwarting the relentless Liverpool team presents a formidable challenge.


Score Prediction: Liverpool to secure a 3-0 victory. As the stage is set for an enticing encounter, football enthusiasts can anticipate a thrilling showdown at Molineux.
