MATCH PREVIEW:

- Wolves have won just one of their eight Premier League meetings with Liverpool (D2 L5), winning 1-0 in December 2010 at Anfield under Mick McCarthy.
- Liverpool are unbeaten in each of their last five away trips against Wolves (W2 D3), keeping a clean sheet in each of the last three.
- Wolves won their last competitive match against Liverpool in January 2017 in the FA Cup fourth round – they haven’t won consecutive games against the Reds since November 1980.
- Wolves have lost their last 11 top-flight games played on a Friday, including both such matches in the Premier League. Their last such win came in April 1965 vs Sunderland – since then P12 W0 D1 L11 F5 A26.
- This will be Wolves’ 10th Premier League game against sides starting the day of the table (W2 D1 L6). Their most recent win in such a match ended the longest ongoing unbeaten run that season (Man Utd in 2010-11).
- If Liverpool win this game, they are guaranteed to be top of the table on Christmas Day. Each of the last four sides to top the table on Christmas Day have gone on to win the title, though Liverpool themselves were the last side to fail to do so in 2013-14.
- Liverpool are unbeaten in 18 Premier League games – their longest ever run in the competition, and longest run in the top-flight since November 1990 (23 games).
- Wolves are looking to win four consecutive top-flight games for the first time since January 1972.
- Wolves will be the 27th different side Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has faced in the Premier League – he’s beaten all previous 26 sides so far.
- Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in 10 goals in eight Premier League appearances against newly-promoted teams for the Reds (5 goals, 5 assists). The Egyptian has scored in each of his last five Premier League appearances against newly-promoted teams.
