Virgil van Dijk of Liverpool

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.

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.
