It is potentially the most difficult game for the Reds in their daring pursuit of the quadruple. They have already secured two trophies the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup. However, the final game of the season will be difficult as the destiny of the title is not in their hands.
Liverpool will need help from their former beloved hero Steven Gerrard. The Englishman is now the manager at Aston Villa and they face Manchester City in the final defeat. Even if the Villains succeed in getting a draw, the Reds will have a shot at the title.
However, Wolves can’t be underestimated as well. In comparison to Aston Villa, they are far more likely to get something from Anfield. They have already beaten Tottenham Hotspur while Chelsea managed only a draw in two meetings this season. Thus in the grand scheme of plans, the Reds must do their job of winning at home.
It is not clear whether Jurgen Klopp will risk Mohammad Salah and Virgil Van Dijk ahead of the game. While Fabinho and Joe Gomez both have been ruled out for the game.
The away side will be without the trio of Max Kilman, Romain Saiss and Nelson Semedo.
Liverpool: Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Ibrahim Konate, Andy Robertson, Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson, Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota.
Wolves: Jose Sa, Willy Boly, Conor Cody, Amir Nouri, Jonny, Leander Dendoncker, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Rayan Nouri, Fabio Silva, Hee-Chan Hwang.
The German and the Portuguese have been in opposite dugouts only once. The Liverpool manager emerged victorious from that game.
Although Luis Diaz has been in the headlines for his performances but Mane will be the key player in this game. Mo Salah might not be available, while Diaz still needs to work on his finishing. In such a situation the Reds will need goals and Mane will be the best outlet for them to get the goals.
The experienced Portuguese will have to navigate his side in the midfield. The home side will press in packs to win the ball higher up the pitch. In such tight spaces, Moutinho will have to find his teammates in spaces. Also due to his seniority, other players will also be looking toward him for inspiration.
Defenders: Ibrahim Konate, Trent Alexander Arnold, Conor Coady, Air Nouri
Midfielders: Thiago, Luis Diaz, Sadio Mane, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho
Attackers: Raul Jimmnez
It is not the first time Jurgen Klopp’s men are facing such a situation. In recent times they have also shown that they have the necessary squad depth as well. Thus they should get the three points in this game.
