Wolves and Liverpool meet in the FA Cup third round at Molineux and at a big price I’m backing the hosts to claim a victory.
Wolves to win @ 59/20
If this were a league fixture I wouldn’t give Wolves much hope but Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will surely make changes for this game and the home side can take advantage.
The Reds’ Premier League lead now looks fragile after a loss to closest challengers Manchester City last time out and the FA Cup must come third on the list of Klopp’s priorities behind the league and the Champions League.
The Liverpool manager essentially has a free pass to field a weakened side, as the fans and pundits are unlikely to criticise too much given their league position and European commitments, while counterpart Nuno Espirito Santo should field his best XI.
Wolves beat both Chelsea and Spurs in December and can see off another big gun by beating what should be a much-changed Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Celta Vigo to win @ 6/4
Celta Vigo entertain Athletic Bilbao in today’s solitary La Liga fixture and I’m expecting a home win in this match-up.
Both teams are having seasons to forget as Bilbao find themselves in the drop zone and Celta are just five points clear of danger.
Bilbao are yet to win on the road this season and they have a few injury problems ahead of this one, and Celta can ease their own drop fears by picking up a much needed three points.
