The Premier League could return with a bang as Wolves host Liverpool at Molineux in a game which could have plenty of goals.
It’s been an eventful time at Anfield, with a rebuild of the midfield followed by a transfer saga over Mo Salah, but the signs on the pitch are very good. After a 1-1 draw against Chelsea Liverpool won their next three before the international break, including a 2-1 win at Newcastle after being a goal and a man down for nearly an hour.
They rode their luck a bit at St James’s Park but were thoroughly dominant against Bournemouth and Aston Villa and the signs are good for the future. Dominik Szoboszlai has made a brilliant start in midfield alongside Alexis Mac Allister, whilst Mo Salah and Luis Diaz have looked extremely sharp in attack.

A poor preparation along with a lack of goals has many fearing for Wolves’ future – they are just
to go down with starsports.bet – and three defeats from four games is a worrying start for them, albeit with the caveat that they were very unlucky not to come away from a least a point against Manchester United.
After a summer where Ruben Neves, Nathan Collins and Matheus Nunes departed – followed by manager Julen Lopetegui, just a few days before the new season – a difficult campaign would be no surprise although there might be some hope if Gary O’Neill can get Hwang Hee-Chan and Sasa Kalajdzic firing once again, especially when their fixture list eases up (have played three of last season’s top six in first four fixtures).
Liverpool’s favouritism is well earned, although short price backers should be mindful of injury concerns. Trent Alexander-Arnold, Thiago Alcantara, Ibrahima Konate and Darwin Nunez were all missing from Liverpool’s training session on Thursday and Virgil Van Dijk is banned after his one match ban was upgraded for his verbal tirade at John Brooks at Newcastle.
A new centre back pairing – Joel Matip and the 20-year-old Jarrell Quansah could partner each other with Joe Gomez moved to right back – might leave Liverpool more open at the back then they were against Aston Villa before the international break, and Over 3.5 goals could be the way to go here.
