Curtis Jones and Andy Robertson could reach Liverpool milestones in Saturday’s Premier League meeting with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Jones’ next appearance will be his 100th for the Reds in all competitions, while Robertson is one game away from totalling 200 league outings at the club.

Read on for more pre-match facts and figures ahead of the 12.30pm BST kick-off at Molineux…

Robertson is one of only two outfield players to have played every minute of Liverpool’s league campaign so far this season. The other is Dominik Szoboszlai.

The Reds have won 12 of their last 13 league encounters against Wolves – a run going back to January 2011.

Jürgen Klopp’s men are currently on the longest unbeaten run of any team in the Premier League. They are 15 games without defeat (10 wins, five draws).

Jones’ first senior Liverpool appearance came at Molineux, in an FA Cup defeat back in January 2019.

Diogo Jota scored 44 times in 131 appearances for Wolves from 2017 to 2020, with 33 of those goals coming in 111 league outings.

The Reds have not lost any game played on this date since 1967 (1-0 at Southampton). Since then they have registered 12 wins and five draws from 17 matches.

The teams have met twice on this date previously – a 1-1 draw in 1953 and a 6-0 Liverpool victory in 1963, both at Anfield.

Before the international break, Mohamed Salah became the first player to score or assist in 10 consecutive appearances in the Premier League since doing so himself between August and December 2021 (15 games in a row).
