Liverpool -450 / Wolverhampton Wanderers +1000 / Draw +500
Liverpool will make one final attempt to dethrone Manchester City as the Reds finish their season at home against Wolves.
Liverpool were exceptional midweek as they caused a massive comeback and eliminated Barcelona by beating them 4-0. Wijnaldum and Origi were both exceptional as both players scored 2 goals each. The win means that Liverpool have made the final of the Champions League. As far as the Premier League is concerned, Liverpool trail Manchester City by 1 point and have an inferior goal difference. With that in mind, the Reds must win and hope that Manchester City drop points if they are to win the title.
On the other side of the coin, Wolves will look to finish their season on a high. It has been a very good season for Wolves and they are set to finish in 7th spot on the ladder. In their last outing, Wolves played at home as they defeated Fulham 1-0. Wolves have won their last 3 games and the team has beaten the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham this season. The team looks confident and Wolves should cause Liverpool some problems.
Liverpool and Wolves have played each other twice this season. The two teams met in the Premier League in a match where Liverpool won 2-0. Following that win, Liverpool and Wolves played in the FA Cup. Wolves were the stronger team in the FA Cup clash as they won 2-1.
As far as this match is concerned, I am going to pick Liverpool to win. Wolves have had an outstanding season but I don’t see them having enough left to beat Liverpool at Anfield. Anfield has always been a fortress for the Reds and I see them finishing their Premier League season a win and 3 more points of the board.
