After an undefeated start to the season, Wolves have dropped their past two games at home, scoring nil and conceding five.

This weekend, they head to Anfield to take on Liverpool and manager Mick McCarthy sees it as a great opportunity for his players to go into a match not expected to win.

“Maybe Liverpool is the best fixture for us after last weekend – to go to Anfield and play when there’s no pressure on us,” said McCarthy.

“I think last Saturday’s fixture (against QPR) was one of those where the pressure was on us to play well and to win against a team that got promoted. Liverpool away – there’s no pressure and we’re not expected to get anything, so it’s a place we can go and play.”
