Liverpool v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Liverpool will be going all out for the win over their FA Cup conquerors Wolves while they will be hoping Brighton can do them a favour.
It has been a remarkable season in many ways for Jurgen Klopp’s men as they are still in with a realistic shout of achieving a Premier League and Champions League double – something not done by an English club since Manchester United in 2008.
For Jurgen Klopp’s men – one point behind Manchester City going into the final round of fixtures – to potentially finish on 97 points and not win the Premier League would be very unlucky, though they may still have a feeling of ‘what if?’ – given the fact they were ten points clear at one stage.
However, the Reds have been brilliant challengers to Manchester City and made this season’s title race a much more absorbing watch than the complete domination of Pep Guardiola’s men last year.
Liverpool also have a chance to finish with an unbeaten home record for the eighth time, and – after achieving the feat last season – for the first time consecutively since 1980.
Klopp’s team are carrying a few battle scars from their astonishing comeback victory over Barcelona – Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson picked up knocks in that famous win, while Mo Salah is still a doubt following a head injury sustained at Newcastle last weekend.
All three may play some part, although Roberto Firmino remains absent.
Wolves will be no easy opponent for Liverpool as demonstrated by their FA Cup third-round defeat of the Reds.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will finish seventh regardless of what happens at Anfield with his promoted side coping brilliantly with the rigours of the Premier League.
No new injury blows have been reported with his thin squad likely to remain relatively unchanged for the Anfield trip.
Wolves’ only motivation will be to stop Liverpool from having a chance of lifting the title and they have performed admirably against the established big six this season – taking 16 points from them, although Jurgen Klopp’s side won 2-0 at Molineux in the reverse fixture.
