Is this the night? Could it be? Are we going to be asking this question every five or six days until May?
Probably not; probably not; probably. But you’d sense this might be one of Liverpool’s closer calls on their inexorable march to Premier League domination and that Wolves, flagging a touch but still outstanding when at full tilt, have it in them to give them an almighty run for their money. And, hell with it, even knock off their “invincible” crown!
Liverpool edged past Nuno Espirito Santo’s team at Anfield a mere four weeks ago thanks to Sadio Mane’s goal. They’d take an identical outcome tonight; it’d be a huge hurdle cleared and I would say that, of their remaining fixtures, Man City (a) on 4 April is the only tougher gig than this.
A win for Wolves would put them three points off the Champions League spots; a draw would still lift them to fifth. Make no mistake, this is a heavyweight clash and we’ll have it especially for *you* at 8pm UK time.
