We’re offering even BIGGER prices on Tuesday night’s FA Cup third round replay at Molineux, specifically an 11/2 shot which includes Wolves progressing to the next round.
Liverpool can thank their lucky stars that they remain involved in this season’s FA Cup, even if Tuesday night’s replay is a game that Jurgen Klopp and his side could have done without.
Last season’s cup winners, who are 9/1 to go the distance this time around, have endured a tough time of things of late, with Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at the hands of Brighton & Hove Albion the latest of a succession of disappointments for the 2019/20 Premier League champions.
The Reds have been severely off the pace since the turn of the year; being heavily beaten by both Brentford and Brighton in the league either side of their frustrating 2-2 draw with Julen Lopetegui’s side at Anfield.
Had it not been for a VAR flaw then the heat could have been ramped up yet further on Klopp, with a seemingly good Toti Gomes goal controversially chalked off for offside just nine minutes from time.
Still, by hook or by crook, Liverpool remain in the competition and they will be hoping they can ignite life back into their stuttering campaign in front of the live television cameras in the Black Country.
With the home side dumping Liverpool out of the competition in both 2017 and 2019, Klopp will be hoping it proves a case of third time lucky for his under-performing troops.
They head into the tie as the 23/20 favourites, although Wolves (12/5), boosted by their vital top-flight triumph over West Ham United on Saturday, will fancy their chances of capitalising on Liverpool’s vulnerabilities.

Whilst Wolves have been beaten in each of their last three league fixtures on home soil against Liverpool, they do possess a far superior record in FA Cup meetings.
Of the seven times the two sides have been drawn out of the hat together, the Molineux side have progressed on five occasions – with their last defeat coming way back in February 1952.
Successive 2-1 losses in 2017 and 2019 dumped Klopp and co out of the competition, and there is a very real possibility that they will suffer the same fate on Tuesday night on the back of a troublesome dip in form this calendar year.
The Reds have declined considerably since lifting the trophy last May, and they know that they will have to overcome a resurgent Wolves side, who have vastly improved under the guidance of former Real Madrid and Sevilla boss Lopetegui.
Since his arrival in December, Wolves have been beaten just once in seven matches – a stark contrast to the seven defeats in ten prior that saw the club plummet into the relegation zone.
Whilst the Spaniard has shored up their leaky backline, it’s worth remembering that eight goals have been scored in the last two meetings between the sides.
There were four at Anfield earlier this month (2-2) and it was the same tally on Merseyside in the last top-flight meeting between the sides back in May (3-1).
But with both backlines capable of being breached, coupled with the fact that both sides have scored in their last six FA Cup clashes, there promises to be yet more goalmouth action in the Midlands on Tuesday night.
Recent fixtures involving Wolves have produced a flurry of corners too, with the ‘Over 8 Corners’ element of the Bet Builder being triggered in seven of their last ten fixtures in all competitions – including 15 in their recent 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.
