Michael Owen is tipping Liverpool FC to ease to a narrow win against Wolves at Molineux Stadium on Friday evening.

The Reds have barely put a foot wrong in the Premier League title race as Jurgen Klopp looks to become the first Liverpool FC boss to win the English top flight crown since Sir Kenny Dalglish in 1990.

Liverpool FC have won their last four Premier League games thanks to victories over Everton, Burnley, Bournemouth and Manchester United to maintain their lead at the top of the table.

The Merseyside outfit were 3-1 winners against Manchester United last weekend thanks to goals from Sadio Mane and Xherdan Shaqiri to seal three huge points in the title race.

Wolves have adapted well to the Premier League following a return of 25 points from their opening 17 games to hoist themselves up to seventh spot in the table.

The promoted side have managed to take a point off Manchester City and Manchester United, while Wolves were 2-1 winners against Chelsea FC last month.

Wolves have collected 14 points from nine home games in the Premier League this season to help the promoted side move clear of the drop zone.

Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing the Reds to ease to a narrow win against Wolves in the Premier League on Friday night.

“Each of the last four sides who have led the Premier League on Christmas Day have gone on to win the title and Liverpool are guaranteed top spot if they win at Molineux on Friday evening,” Owen told BetVictor.

“That said, the last side to fail to win the league having been top at Christmas, were the Reds back in the 2013-14 season. Jurgen Klopp’s side were irresistible on occasions against Manchester United on Sunday and are unbeaten in their last 18 league games.

“The Reds won’t have things all their own way against Wolves, however, given the hosts have won their last three league games and have already taken a point off champions Manchester City, and all three against title-challengers Chelsea, at Molineux already this season.”
