Premier League Preview: Wolves (A)

Premier League Preview: Wolves (A)
January 30, 2012 Gary Fulcher

After Liverpool’s double cup triumphs over Man City and Man Utd in the League and FA Cups respectively, it’s now time to re-focus on matters in the Premier League as we travel to Molineux (19.45 kick off) to face Mick McCarthy’s Wolverhampton Wanderers side on Tuesday evening.

Six points separate us from 4th placed Chelsea but with 46pts still up for grabs, a 4th place finish is still an achievable aim for Kenny and the boys. With some tough fixtures ahead against Tottenham (at Anfield), Manchester Utd (Old Trafford) and Arsenal (at Anfield) – not forgetting the League Cup final sandwiched in-between the latter two fixtures – picking up three points at Molineux would greatly add to the growing confidence that has came from our recent exploits in the domestic cups.
