Team news, stats and predictions ahead of Wolves vs Liverpool in the Premier League on Monday (kick-off 8pm).

Team news

Wolves Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has no new injury or suspension concerns for the Premier League game against Liverpool on Monday night.

Daniel Podence and Marcal (both groin) will be absent again while Raul Jimenez continues his recovery from a fractured skull.

The Mexican striker recently received the green light to continue training with his teammates and wears a protective headband during drills – although a return is still a long way off.

Monday, March 15, 7:00 p.m.

Start at 8:00 p.m.

Liverpool waiting for the fitness of striker Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian striker has missed the last two games with a sore knee but has a chance to return to the squad on Monday.

Manager Jürgen Klopp has to decide whether to keep the inexperienced center-back pairing of Ozan Kabak and Nat Phillips, who have not conceded in their only two starts, and continue to play in midfield against Fabinho.

You might want to do some housework in the first half of this house or take the dog out. Take a look at Jamie Carragher before the game, of course, but don’t worry if you see the first 45 minutes when the two lowest-scoring teams meet in the Premier League first half (since Jan 22nd ) to meet. Both teams have only scored one goal in their nine games during that time.

Jürgen Klopp’s team have scored a goal in the first half in the last 13 Premier League games, while the Wolves have only scored one in the last nine 45 minutes. If you also take into account the likely make-up of the game, the 15/8 with Sky Bet has to bring it up for the break score to be 0-0 on your radar. Nuno’s side will happily sit down and frustrate Liverpool by deeply defending and breaking a defensive block. This is currently an impossible task for Klopp’s team.

If the Wolves decide to open, the odds will likely be a little more regular in the second half – but the longer the game stays 0-0, the more likely they will be satisfied with a point. The 10: 1 for a 0-0 full-time is also worth seeing.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 0-0

COMPETITION ANGLE: Correct result of 0: 0 at halftime (15: 8 with Sky Bet)
