Wolverhampton Wanderers will be on the hunt for an upset result when they host league leaders Liverpool at Molineux Stadium on Thursday 23 January 2020, kick-off at 23:00. The match is one of 10 spread across the midweek of 21-23 January for the 24th round of the 2019/20 Premier League season.

Wolverhampton will be looking to improve on their home form, having played to successive draws against Manchester United (in the FA Cup) and Newcastle United in their last two turns as hosts.

"We are working and hopefully things work out and we can solve it [a lean run of form],” said manager Nuno Espirito Santo. “We need solutions, we need more than specific positions, players that can bring us different situations, that can help us in these kind of games.”

Liverpool’s last away game in the Premier League was a 1-0 win at Tottenham Hotspur on January 11, with the Reds continuing the excellent form which has seen them dominate the English top flight.

“We go for the biggest prize. If we can get that by playing here a little bit of football and there a little bit of football that would not be interesting for me. You have to give your all and that’s what we do,” said manager Jurgen Klopp.
