Has anything changed under Kenny Dalglish? While the Scot is infinitely more popular than predecessor Roy Hodgson, he has been given plenty of cash to spend since becoming manager last January and the team were an absolute train wreck at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
Jordan Henderson was completely anonymous in midfield, with Luis Suarez and Andy Carroll unable to hold the ball up in attack, although perhaps Liverpool simply caught Spurs on a good day and they have what seems like the ideal match to bounce back from that defeat.
The Reds are 2/5 (Paddy Power – £100 free bets) to claim victory against a Wolves side that have recently lost home matches against Spurs and QPR. Steven Gerrard could make his first start of the season after appearing as a sub against Brighton during the week and the skipper is 6/1 (Ladbrokes – £50 free betting) to register the first goal of the game.
Wanderers won at Anfield last December and the 1-0 victory was a result which seemed to convince the club’s new owners that Hodgson wasn’t the man to lead the club forward. Another away win might have a few Liverpool supporters starting to question Dalglish’s credentials and that can be backed at 9/1.
Wolves are unbeaten on the road after collecting four points from matches at Blackburn and Aston Villa, with the visitors hoping to stop the dangerous Luis Suarez from finding gaps in a defence that improved since Roger Johnson arrived in the summer.
The Uruguayan is 3/1 to open the scoring, with Carroll looking for his first goal of the Premier League season, although Dalglish may opt to start with the reliable Dirk Kuyt who can consider himself unfortunate to be left out at the expense of Henderson and Adam.
