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.

Recent results- Last five games

Liverpool (last five games)- won 5

Wolves (last five games) –won 3.

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.

Top scorers

Liverpool- Salah -22

Wolves-  Raul Jimenez- 13

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

Liverpool FC transfer news: Reds willing to send Harry Wilson on loan to Premier League sides

The Birmingham Mail reports that Liverpool will allow young winger Harry Wilson to join Premier League clubs on loan next season.

The 22-year-old was excellent for Derby as they reached the Championship play-off final, but he could not get them over the line.

The Welsh attacker racked up 16 goals and four assists for the Rams, and the report claims that this would be a blow for several Championship clubs interested in Wilson.

Derby and Leeds were interested in the 22-year-old, according to the report, but Premier League club Wolves are also keeping tabs on the attacker.

The Reds could sell Wilson for a fee of £20m while Wolves and other suitors could be interested in a loan deal for the Welshman (h/t Birmingham Mail).

Liverpool to finalise Wilson’s fate soon

The report claims that any decision on Wilson’s future depends on his performances in pre-season.

Jurgen Klopp wants to take a close look at the 22-year-old in the summer as the Welshman tries to break into the Liverpool first-team.

Liverpool could do with cover for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane out wide, and Wilson was in the form of his life last season.

The 22-year-old could be an important player for us next season, however, he still has to improve a lot before being considered a starter at Liverpool.

Latest Liverpool news: Reds will learn about their Champions League fixtures on 29 August

The Liverpool Echo reports that the Reds will learn about their Champions League opponents after 29th August. Liverpool are the top seeds in the competition after they defeated Tottenham in the final a couple of weeks ago.

The other seeds in Pot 1 are Barcelona, Chelsea, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Zenit St. Petersburg, Chelsea and Manchester City.

Chelsea made it to the group after their Europa League win over Arsenal while Manchester City are present as they are the Premier League champions.

A lot of fixtures to be added into Liverpool’s schedule

The report adds that the group stage draw will take place on 29th August, with the first set of fixtures scheduled for 17th and 18th September.

Liverpool’s fixtures for the Premier League were released earlier today, and the opening game is against Norwich City at Anfield.

The Reds will have to play six Champions League group games and those will be scheduled as midweek matches. More games will be added if the Reds progress into the knockout rounds, and there should be more rescheduling done for the Club World Cup.

Liverpool didn’t have major problems with the Champions League games in between the Premier League clashes and it will be interesting to see how well we do this season.

Latest Liverpool news: Liverpool postpone Schalke friendly clash due to Norwich fixture

Liverpool confirmed that the pre-season friendly against Schalke has been postponed.

The friendly was scheduled for 6th August but Liverpool start their Premier League campaign on 9th August against Norwich.

The Friday game seems to have come early for the Reds as the release adds that we need adequate preparation time. The release claimed that a new date for the game against Schalke would be shared once the two teams work together.

A big decision taken by the club

This certainly was a tough decision taken by the Reds, but it makes sense as we need to be well-prepared to face Daniel Farke’s men.

Norwich won the Championship last season and cannot be taken lightly. The additional time to prepare is important for the Reds given that several players will be returning from AFCON and Copa America duty.
