Virgil van Dijk got his first Premier League goal for the Reds against Wolves

Liverpool are set to face Wolves in the final game day of the Premier League this season.

The Reds produced a dramatic win over Spanish giants Barcelona in the second leg of Champions League semi-finals overcoming their 3-0 aggregate defecit.

However, their Premier League title hopes look bleak as Manchester City has the edge to clinch the title.

The Reds will be able to break their long-running Premier League trophy drought unless Pep Guardiola’s men tend to lose against bottom dwellers Brighton this Sunday. This looks more implausible.

Meanwhile, the Wanderers want to end their brilliant season on a high note.

Previous meetings this season

In this season’s reverse fixture, Mersey side club emerged the winners and soon Nuno’s men replied with a 2-1 win in FA Cup 3rd round, eventually throwing the Reds out of the competition.

Liverpool are now best priced at 1/5 to get the maximum points going into the final weekend of the season thanks to Jurgen Klopp’s intelligent man-management, though punters listed on AmazingBet can see these odds increase should they place the bet through in favour or Manchester City, who face Brighton at around the same time.

Recent results- Last five games

The Wolves have thrashed big names Arsenal and Manchester United in the process.

Players to watch out for

Liverpool – Divocki Origi and Wijnaldum

Origi and Wijnaldum were the talk of the town after their heroics against Barca at Anfield last night.

The Belgian forward provided the initial breakthrough for the Reds in the absence of talisman Roberto Firmino and Wijnaldum turned as a super-sub to score a quick-fire brace.

The Dutch midfielder has been one of the key members for Jurgen Klopp this season featuring in more than 30 games.

And last night’s goals were their first of this season’s Champions League.

Wolves – Diogo Jota

The Portuguese forward Diogo Jota has been a revelation for the newly promoted Wolves this season.

The versatile full-back has bagged a goal tally of 14 so far and scored against the Gunners and Watford recently.

Furthermore, the 24-year-old has caught the eyes of many big clubs owing to his brilliant run of form.

Real Madrid enter race for Liverpool-linked Erling Haaland

Real Madrid are the latest European giants linked with RB Salzburg forward Erling Haaland, according to AS (h/t Sky Sports).

The 19-year-old has taken the football world by storm and scored a hat-trick in his Champions League debut this season.

Haaland found the back of the net in Salzburg’s 4-3 loss at the hands of Liverpool. The Norwegian has scored 18 goals from 11 games in all competitions, and has multiple hat-tricks to his name this season.

The son of former Leeds United striker Alf-Inge Haaland, Erling was born in Leeds and started his career at Bryne before moving to Molde and then Salzburg.

The youngster has also attracted the attention of Manchester United and Juventus, amongst other clubs (h/t Sky Sports).

Big move on the cards for Haaland?

The 19-year-old still has a lot to learn but is one of the brightest talents already. It will be interesting to see how he progresses this season with the Austrian side but the signs look good.

Salzburg are leading their league and are placed well in the Champions League too. Haaland could play a huge role as they try to land silverware this season, and a move at the end of the campaign cannot be ruled out.

Liverpool don’t confirm or deny reports of paying Manchester City regarding a scouting issue

Liverpool have responded to claims that they paid Manchester City £1million after the Cityzens complained that we had hacked their scouting system.

The Times (h/t Liverpool Echo) reported that an agreement was reached between the Premier League giants in 2013 after City found out that their scouting database was looked into.

City used a scouting system called Scout7 and their login had been used by our club’s employees several times (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The report adds that the Premier League leaders paid City a sum of £1million without the club or any individuals accepting any wrongdoing, and the allegations were never tested in courts.

The Liverpool Echo carried a statement from the Reds where they didn’t deny or accept the original report from the Times:

“Liverpool Football Club does not provide any comment on any allegations relating to legal agreements it may or may not have entered into with any other club, organisation or individual.”

Another battle between the pair

The two clubs were involved in a tight tussle in the 2013-14 season, with the Reds just missing out on the Premier League crown.

The pair was almost inseparable last season and we are leading the Cityzens in the league currently.

The rivalry between the two clubs has grown in recent seasons, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in the Premier League this time around.

The Reds also had a sizeable lead last season but City clawed back and won the title by one point.

Former Liverpool hero warns that Reds star’s form could dip later in the season due to this reason

Latest Liverpool news: Barnes warns Mane’s form could dip later in the season

Sadio Mane has been a machine for Liverpool over the past two seasons. The Senegal star was involved in the World Cup, played almost every game for us last season and then took the national side to the AFCON final.

Barely three weeks after the final, he was back at Liverpool and came off the bench to face Norwich. Mane has bagged three goals in his last two games and should feature for us against Arsenal at the weekend.

Former Liverpool star John Barnes claims that Mane is in fine form due to a lack of rest for the attacker, and we could pay for that later in the season.

Barnes was speaking to the Sport Review and claimed that Klopp would be able to manage this situation (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“Maybe one of the reasons Sadio Mane in fine form is because he’s fitter than everybody else because he hasn’t had the time off, which he could pay for later on in the season, come Christmas time.

“But I’m sure that Klopp will be able to manage that situation.”

Liverpool’s over-reliance on their forwards

Klopp has rotated his midfield several times over the past two seasons but isn’t afforded the same luxury when it comes to the forwards.

Roberto Firmino only missed games when he was injured in the previous campaign, while Mohamed Salah also played in most of the games.

Liverpool have Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi as cover for the pair, but they aren’t on the same level as the African stars.

Salah and Mane are extremely durable, given the number of games played over the past two years, and they seem to be performing at a high level and barely look tired.
