Gary O’Neil has been speaking with the press ahead of Liverpool visiting the Molineux.

Despite being massive underdogs, Gary O’Neil has insisted that Wolves have what it takes to hurt Liverpool at Molineux.

As reported by the Liverpool ECHO, he said: “It’s going to be a tough test. We’ve got a good game plan in place that allows us to be aggressive when we’re ready to, allows us to have good spells with the ball, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the boys can produce.

“We’re creating a lot of chances. My job is to understand exactly what’s going on, how and why. Data and numbers wise, we’re creating a lot of good opportunities and arriving in good areas. There’s still a lot we need to improve to get it to where I think it should be.”

Finally, O’Neil claimed that he has been impressed by his side so far, and thinks they can threaten Liverpool.

“There’s been situations we could have done better from, but we’ll keep creating situations. I’m sure this weekend, against a team who are going to be strong, we can create some opportunities to hurt them.”

O’Neil praises Liverpool

Despite being confident in his side’s ability to get something from the game, O’Neil has been full of praise for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

“Liverpool have been very impressive this season, I think they’ve made a big improvement from last season with their structure.

“I’ve watched all of their games from this season, and they look a very good side, so it’ll be a tough game for us, of course.”

A tough but not impossible challenge, one which we are confident will see Wolves walk out with at least a point.

On team selection

Following the international break, O’Neil was cautious about revealing any fitness updates but didn’t mention any new injuries that have ruled anyone out.

“We have a couple of question marks, as I’m sure all managers do, over the lads who’ve travelled a long way, how well they’ll be able to recover and go again, especially for an early kick-off, but I’m looking forward to the game.,”

O’Neil said. “Playing at home, in front of our crowd, against one of the biggest teams in England is always exciting.”

An exciting afternoon awaits at Molineux tomorrow, we just hope to see some points on the board afterwards.
