The teams are in for Wolves v Liverpool today in the Premier League encounter at Molineux. Mick McCarthy’s men have the opportunity to secure the double over Liverpool in the Premiership this season after their surprise 1-0 win at Anfield earlier in the campaign in which Stephen Ward netted the winner. Wolves are in great goalscoring form, having hit the back of the net ten times in the last three matches, and will be encouraged by the fact that Kevin Doyle has rediscovered his scoring touch. However, undeniably most of the focus will be on Kenny Dalglish and his Liverpool team today, but of the below who will be the match winners?
Wolves: Wayne Hennessey, Ronald Zubar, Richard Stearman, Christophe Berra, Stephen Ward, Stephen Hunt, Karl Henry, Nenad Milijas, Matt Jarvis, Kevin Doyle, Steven Fletcher.
Liverpool: Pepe Reina, Martin Kelly, Glen Johnson, Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel, Maxi Rodriguez, Lucas Leiva, Christian Poulsen, Dirk Kuyt, Raul Meireles, Fernando Torres.
So there are the teams, but of those players who are you going to select in your Picklive Trio? Now is the time for Fernando Torres to show followers of the Premier League exactly what he’s made of and having scored in Liverpool’s last away fixture at Blackpool, he now needs to find the back of the net regularly. So much pressure rests on the Spaniard’s shoulders, but he has to show why he’s world class and start winning some matches almost single-handedly.
Raul Meireles has been one of Liverpool’s better performers this season, but having signed for a fee in excess of £10 million from Porto in the summer, he should be. The Portuguese midfielder really needs to take control of matches in the middle of the park and this is something that a player of his quality should be able to do against Wolves today.
Finally there’s Dirk Kuyt. Rafa Benitez, Roy Hodgson and now Kenny Dalglish have all shown their faith in the Dutch forward and his work rate and determination has to be admired. Now he needs to accompany those attributes with a little bit more quality and find the back of the net himself, and not just from the penalty spot.
So will the Liverpool revival start today? If it does then Torres, Meireles and Kuyt will be central to it, and these are THREE players that you should seriously consider selecting for Picklive: LIVE Fantasy Football today. Simply click on the link below and pick your players now!
