Liverpool take on Wolves this weekend with the Reds knowing that a win can at least draw them level at the top of the table, it will put them clear at the top if Spurs fail to beat Arsenal. Ahead of what promises to be a tightly contested affair, Emile Heskey has warned Liverpool they need to stop Adama Traore.
Libpool (could) top the league
The Reds have been ravaged by injuries, illness and poor refereeing this season.
Despite it all the Reds are still in the mix at the top of the table.
Jürgen Klopp’s side are a point behind leaders Chelsea with a game in hand over the West London club.
Should Spurs fail to beat Arsenal today then a win for Liverpool would put them clear at the top of the table.

Heading into December top of the league given the difficulties that Klopp has faced this season would be some achievement.
Emile Heskey on Liverpool and Adama Traore
Wolves are without their starting striker this weekend as Raul Jimenez recovers from a sickening head injury, we wish him all the best.
In light of the visitors missing their focal point up top, we asked Anfield icon Emile Heskey who the Reds should be wary of.
The former England international told us Liverpool need to stop Adama Traore:
“Traore is the one isn’t he. When he oil up his arm so nobody can get him, he is frighteningly quick.
“He is the one who scares the living daylights out of players.
“There were certain things said about him when he was younger, that he didn’t have an end product.
“He would have everything up to that but he’s slowly started to add that end product. Jimenez is thriving off having him on the wing, he’s whipping balls in for fun.”
What RTK has to say
Trent Alexander-Arnold said that the Wolves winger left him feeling powerless.
The burly, pacy wide man has been terrifying defenders since he entered the Premier League.
Liverpool stopping Adama Traore could well be the key to a good result this weekend – it is no surprise that Mundo Deportivo believe Wolves want £63m for the Spaniard.
The Reds dealing with the winger would cut off the supply to whoever ends up playing through the middle for Wolves.
The question is: can Neco Williams deal with him if they end up on the same wing?
