Mark Lawrenson makes prediction for Wolves vs Liverpool

Wolverhampton Wanderers face a Liverpool side desperate to get back on track on Monday night.

The Premier League champions are in a total rut right now, and face a battle to finish in the top four.

Thye got a much needed win against RB Leipzig in the Champions League which could give them confidence.

But it’s just one win in their last seven in the league, with six of those being defeats.

An interesting game, therefore, awaits, with Wolves proving more difficult to beat in recent weeks.

Many have been having their say about where the points will go, including ex-Reds defender Mark Lawrenson.

He actually reckons Wolves will be able to take a point against his old side.

Predicting a 1-1 scoreline, he wrote for BBC Sport: “Wolves will have seen how other teams have got good results against Liverpool recently, so they will be happy to sit back and make things difficult for them, thinking they will still get a chance or two at the other end.

Liverpool’s away form hasn’t been too bad of late, but you can’t say they will finish in the top four while they can’t win at home.

“They are also relying on some of the teams above them suffering a real drop off in form in order for them to make up the ground they have lost, so it is not really in their hands at the moment.”

While Lawrenson is probably right that Nuno’s pack will sit back, hopefully Wolves will show a little more attacking intent than they did against Manchester City last week.
