The Reds have a solid league record against this weekend’s opposition, but the kickoff time is something that has caused problems in the past.
Last season an anomaly?
Liverpool have won 12 of the last 13 league encounters – a run going back to January 2011. The only defeat come in this meeting last season (3-0 at Molineux).
The Reds have completed a league double over Wolves in five of the last six seasons.
That 3-0 defeat was in February Liverpool’s heaviest in this fixture in more than 42 years.
In the last 36 league meetings home and away the Reds have kept 22 clean sheets.
Last season’s defeat is the only time in the last 13 league meetings home and away in which Liverpool have failed to score.
The last time the Reds failed to score in successive league visits to Molineux came in 1972.
Of the last 38 league goals scored in the fixture the Reds have scored 30.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be so worried!
The dreaded early kickoff
Liverpool have won 10 of their 24 away league games under Jurgen Klopp that have kicked off at 12.30pm.
Last season, Liverpool failed to win any of their six games that began at 12.30pm, picking up three points from a possible 18.
Liverpool scored just four goals in those six matches.
It is not a kickoff time the manager likes, but let’s hope his side can buck those trends this weekend!
A promising start
Only eight times in their history have Liverpool had a better points tally from their opening four league games than their current 10.
Liverpool are currently on the longest unbeaten run of any team in the top-flight – 15 games without defeat (10 wins, 5 draws) since losing 4-1 at Manchester City on 1st April.
Nunez and Salah both scored at Anfield in the initial 2-2 draw.
Curtis Jones could reach the landmark of 100 games for Liverpool in all competitions should he feature.

Wolves: Doherty 2, Hwang Hee-chan 2, Kalajdzic 2, Cunha 1, Fraser 1, Fabio Silva 1
