Seven defeats in 10 games has seen the champions drop from top spot to eighth, and they could be in ninth by the time Monday evening comes around, and fall 25 points behind Manchester City – but a draw for Chelsea at Leeds offers the champions a chance to close the gap on the top four.
Wolves, meanwhile, looked to have overcome their own nightmare run, over the festive period, but toothless displays against Newcastle and Aston Villa have hampered their hopes of a top-half finish, while a return to Europe looks impossible.

Wolves vs Liverpool prediction
Wolves have looked less impressive of late as their inconsistent form continues. Liverpool are enduring an unprecedented run of poor form, though looked more like themselves in the win over RB Leipzig.
