But after a very poor first half to the campaign, Jurgen Klopp’s men and the Blues find themselves battling it out in the mid-table spots.
However, Liverpool ending their three-game winless run against Wolves in the FA Cup could inject some confidence into their veins.
And Graham Potter’s side go into this match fresh from a London derby victory over Crystal Palace.
Furthermore, fans could get to see their first glimpse of mega-money signing Mykhailo Mudryk so it’s set up to be a mouth-watering showing.
