Liverpool will be looking for a win to move back into the top six when they take on Wolves at Molineux this evening.

The Reds booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 2-0 win over RB Leipzig at Anfield on Wednesday night which saw them progress 4-0 on aggregate after also winning the first leg 2-0.

However, while they may be going well in Europe this season, Liverpool have capitulated domestically over the past few weeks as they’ve lost six of their last seven Premier League games.

The latest defeat came at the hands of Fulham, who won 1-0 at Anfield last weekend, and Liverpool now sit eighth in the table – eight points off the top four – so Jurgen Klopp desperately needs to get things back on track tonight.

However, the Merseysiders will be up against a tough Wolves side who are also badly in need of points as they sit 13th in the division following a string of poor performances so it will be interesting to see how things go this evening at Molineux.

Betting odds

Looking through the odds and football bets today, despite their shocking run of form in the Premier League, the bookmakers still price Liverpool as the 4/6 favourites to win the game tonight.

Wolves are priced at 9/2 to win, which seem like very generous odds considering they’re the home team and playing a side who’ve lost six of their last seven league games. The draw could also be tempting at odds of 29/10.

There’s no such thing as sure soccer betting tips due to the unpredictable nature of the Premier League but this game in particular is very difficult to call. Both teams are struggling for consistency so anything could happen.

The draw might be a safe bet, however, if there is to be a winner at Molineux then Liverpool would be our tip and a 2-1 away victory looks good odds at 7/1.

Team news

Liverpool continue to have injury problems in defence as Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip remain long-term absentees while captain Jordan Henderson is facing a battle to play again this season following groin surgery.

Roberto Firmino missed the win over Leipzig last week due to a knee injury and he remains a doubt for the game this evening while goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher is also an injury doubt with an abdominal problem.

As for Wolves, they’ll continue to be without striker Raul Jimenez due to a head injury and Fernando Marcal is also out with a groin problem. They otherwise have no fresh injury concerns to worry about.

Prediction: This is a huge game for Liverpool as another defeat would leave them facing a huge battle just to qualify for Europe next season. The Leipzig win in midweek could be a turning point for them, so we’re backing the Reds to edge it tonight. Wolves 1-2 Liverpool
