Jurgen Klopp’s side have dropped just two points in the Premier League all season and are riding the momentum of their recent victory over Manchester United.
Their status as champions-elect is a virtual certainty, however, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will provide a stern test. Wolves sit in sixth, hunting down a place in the top four, and already boast a victory at home over Manchester City this season. Follow all the action live below:
24: Ruben Neves is on the deck after a late tackle from Mane, who actually wins the ball but takes a chunk of the man too. The midfielder is going to need a bit of treatment on the pitch.
24: It’s all gone a bit scrappy and there’s no sign of either side lowering the intensity. The energy levels are, you could say, that of a cup tie.
21: Wowee what a pass from Oxlade-Chamberlain to set Mane free. The forward can’t quite get the ball under control and Dendoncker is on-hand to tidy up and clear.
17: Van Dijk goes to ground in last-ditch fashion and Jimenez ends up on the deck. The Wolves supporters appeal for a penalty, but the referee waves play on.
Liverpool then break and Salah twists and turns himself into a scoring position, but has a shot blocked.
13: There’s such a buzz whenever Traore gets on the ball, and with great reason. He has Alexander-Arnold and Gomez on strings on that right wing. We’re just waiting for something to come of it.
10: Traore is having some joy against Alexander-Arnold and wins a corner after some nice skill.
The corner is cleared but Wolves recycle possession and the second cross is headed wide from Doherty from very, very close range. You fancy him to score there.
6: Salah’s fallen over and Liverpool have a free-kick on the edge of the area. Big Virg, Salah and Alexander-Arnold interested.
The latter takes it and wins a corner off the wall.
4: Wolves have a free-kick, Joe Gomez pushes over Jonny (not a foul according to Steve McManaman…shock)
The ball to the back post gets past most of the defence and Alexander-Arnold just about clears in time.
Anyone know which team Conor Coady supports? Not seen anyone mention it, you’d think BT Sport may have at least touched on it.
(For those unaware of the terrible, terrible attempt at banter, he is, of course, a Liverpool fan)
Incidentally, Crystal Palace were the last team to beat Liverpool at Anfield.
91 points from a possible 93 in their last 39 Premier League games, which they’ve been unbeaten. All kinds of records in their sights.
I have a really sneaky feeling that tonight’s game could be an absolute belter.
Wolves know how to play really good football and aren’t shy against the big teams.
Feel free to return to this in a couple of hours after we sit through a 0-0 with maybe one shot on target…
Wolves ready to be first team to beat Liverpool
Liverpool remain unbeaten this season and 13 points clear of Manchester City with two games in hand.
Wolves have taken points off City, Leicester, Manchester United and Arsenal this season as they look to become the first team to beat Jurgen Klopp’s side this term.
Nuno Espirito Santo said: “What we’ll do is prepare ourselves well and play the game. Our fans will be behind us, it’ll be a fantastic atmosphere, so we have to enjoy the game.
“We have to compete. That is the word – compete. When you compete, you don’t give up. Every ball is important.
“They’re very good and do things very well. It’s a very good, fantastic team.
“Liverpool are a huge club and a good team.”
Klopp delighted with Alisson’s ability and personality
Klopp has been delighted with how the £65million signing has developed since arriving in the summer of 2018.
“As a goalkeeper we knew what we would get. Yes he made steps, which is normal. As a person he has exceeded the expectation, he is an outstanding guy,” said the manager.
“We have a lot of really good guys but he is a very special person and that’s great from that point of view.
“His character, how calm he is, helps us a lot. His goalkeeper techniques improve and improve, making difficult things look easy but he has to stay like this.
“As a goalkeeper you make a mistake and the ball is in the goal, that is the life of a goalkeeper.
“I know Ali doesn’t take it for granted so I don’t take it for granted. A fantastic boy and a fantastic goalkeeper.”
And here are this evening’s line-ups!

What time is the match?
The match will kick off at 8pm at Molineux.
Where can I watch it?
The match will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate.

What’s the team news?
Ruben Vinagre will miss out with a hamstring problem but Diogo Jota and Willy Boly could both be involved in some part after time on the sidelines.
Naby Keita, James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri are all long-term absentees for Liverpool while the game will likely come too soon for Dejan Lovren, despite the Croatian defender returning to training this week.
Wolves: Patricio, Doherty, Saiss, Coady, Dendoncker, Jonny, Moutinho, Neves, Neto, Jimenez, Traore
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane
There may be few tougher tests of Liverpool’s unbeaten record than at Molineux with the home side already seeing off Manchester City on their own patch this term. That said, the Reds remain irresistible and while it will prove trickier than the win over United they should again taste victory here. Wolves 0-1 Liverpool
