Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Wolverhampton and Liverpool face each other at Molineux Stadium in the FA Cup round 3 replay. The Wolves did well to hold the Reds to a 2-2 draw at Anfield, and they must be high on confidence following a hard-fought 1-0 win over West Ham. Raul Jimenez is widely expected to replace Matheus Cunha up front, with January signing Mario Lemina pushing for a start as well. Both Diego Costa and Joao Moutinho are rated doubtful for the match.
The Reds, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Brighton. Jurgen Klopp’s troops do not seem to be at their sharpest, and seeing that key defender Virgil van Dijk continues to miss out with injury, we are tempted to put our money on draw. Darwin Nunez will be assessed ahead of the kick-off, while all Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Luis Diaz remain in the recovery room.
Highlighted Player (Adama Traore):
After starting his youth career at Hospitalet, Adama Traore moved to Barcelona football academy La Masia in 2004. The pacey winger made a great progress during his spell with the Catalan giants and it has to be noted that he scored eight goals in 63 appearances for Barca B.
Adama Traore made his debut for the first team against Granada (4-0) on November 23, 2013, replacing Brazilian superstar Neymar in the 83rd minute of the match. In the summer of 2015, he signed for Aston Villa for a fee of £7 million, but he made no more than 11 appearances in the Premier League for the Vilans. At the end of the 2015/2016 season he moved to fellow English club Middlesbrough and he made his debut for the Boro in a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on September 10, 2016.
Due to his dual citizenship, Adama Traore is eligible to represent Spain and Mali at senior level, but it has to be noted that he played for youth categories of La Roja.
