The midweek football action continues with six third round replays taking place over the next couple of nights. Here we have previewed Tuesday night’s all-Premier League clash from Molineux, between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool. We’ve also provided you with our best bets for the occasion.
Wolves vs Liverpool Tips
Wolves can count themselves extremely unlucky to not already be in the fourth round after a 2-2 draw at Anfield. They had the better of the game and saw a winner incorrectly ruled out.
Now they face the Reds again at home in the replay and will be confident they can win in front of their own fans, after a 1-0 win at home against West Ham at the weekend.
Liverpool were absolutely stuffed 3-0 by Brighton on Saturday and are now winless in their last three. Klopp may be putting a brave face on it, yet he must be secretly concerned by just how badly they have declined this season.
Julen Lopetegui is without Chiquinho, Pedro Neto, Boubacar Traore and Sasa Kalajdzic, while Diego Costa may have recovered in time after suffering a knock against Aston Villa.
Jürgen Klopp continues to be hampered by a long injury list. Darwin Nunez is the latest to be added to the walking wounded, with Alex Oxlade Chamberlain looking likely to take his place in the front three.
Wolves Double Chance – 4/5
As mentioned above, Wanderers were really unlucky at Anfield and managed more shots and shots on target than the home side.
Lopetegui appears to be getting a bit of a tune out of the Wolves squad and they certainly look better equipped to stay up than they did under Bruno Lage.
The Reds are in a real mess at the moment, both from a injury and footballing stand point and while they possess serious quality still, they aren’t playing like the well oiled team unit they once were.
I expect Wolves to at least take this one to extra time and more likely win in the 90 minutes.
Ruben Neves 1+ shot on target – Evens
Ruben Neves absolutely loves letting fly from distance. The 25-year-old leads Wolves for shots attempted with more than two a game.
His accuracy isn’t terrific with just nine on target from 38 attempts but he managed one in two of his last three games so is starting to find his shooting boots.
