At the start of this season, Wolves may have appeared an easier target for Liverpool in their run in to Manchester United, but how times can change as Wolves have made one of their best starts to a league campaign.
Liverpool face Mick McCarthy's men at Anfield on September 24, seeking to reverse the 1-0 defeat inflicted on them last year. In what was the last match for Liverpool of 2010 even a return for Steven Gerrard could not stop Wolves from causing their eighth defeat of the campaign.
A lack of clinical finishing from Fernando Torres and an inconsistent David N'Gog meant a second half goal from Stephen Ward killed the game off and ensured Liverpool lost the confidence and dominance to equalize.
Strangely only three weeks later the side under new boss Kenny Dalglish thumped McCarthy's men 3-0. This was to be a first win back in charge for King Kenny and signaled a run of form that pushed Liverpool back up the table.
What we have to remember this season though, is that although the Liverpool side are more able in depth and talent, the Wolves side look more adapted to life in the Premiership. Early on critics were contemplating the ideal that Wolves may not face their usual relegation battle and fight to stay in English football's top tier.
A second string mauling of former Liverpool conquerors Northampton Town in the Carling Cup has followed inspired victories over Blackburn and Fulham.
Where Liverpool may feel confident in their ability to defeat Wolves is in the midland sides inability to carry on their momentum against Aston Villa. The Wanderers seemed to lack a strong influence up front and looked content to leave with a point and unbeaten run.
A similar performance against Liverpool would surely see the Anfield side take the advantage, especially if Suarez were to score early on.
Still based on all four of Liverpool's impending fixtures, Wolves surprisingly look the most competitive thus far, and therefore the most able to halt Kenny Dalglish's progress.
