Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers | English Premier League Finale Preview and Betting Prediction

Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Finally! The last matchday of the season is here and we literally have everything to play for still.

Down in the relegation zone, Leeds and Burnley will each do their best to avoid following Watford and Norwich down to the Championship.

But the battle everyone will have an eye on is the race for the Title. After a long and hard-fought season, the title challenge comes down to the final day as Man City try to hold on and retain the English Premier League. Meanwhile, Liverpool continue to do their best to snatch it away from them at the last possible moment and will go all out for a win against Wolves at Anfield.

Do the Reds win to keep the pressure on City until the final whistle of the campaign is blown?

Liverpool vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Mohamed Salah (Muscle injury) and Virgil Van Dijk (Knee injury) are both doubts for the game after going off injured against Chelsea in the FA Cup final last weekend. Fabinho (Hamstring injury) is also a doubt for the game along with Joe Gomez (Ankle injury) who went off injured in Liverpool’s last game.

Expected Liverpool starting lineup: Alisson. Trent-Alexander Arnold, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate, Andrew Robertson. Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, James Milner. Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane. (4-3-3)

 

Matija Sarkic (Dislocated shoulder), Nelson Semedo (Hamstring injury) and Max Kilman (Ankle injury) will all definitely miss the game. Key defender, Romain Saïss is also a doubt for the game after failing to shake off a knock he received against Chelsea quickly.

Expected Wolverhampton Wanderers starting lineup: John Ruddy. Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Toti Gomes. Jonny, Ruben Neves, João Moutinho, Rayan Ait Nouri. Hee-Chan Hwang, Pedro Neto. Raul Jimenez. (3-4-2-1)

  • Liverpool have a far better attack than Wolves. The home team are ranked 2nd in the Premier League with 2.5 goals/game while Wolves are ranked 17th with 1.0 goals/game.
  • Liverpool have also kept the most clean sheets in the premier league (21), compared to Wolves who have kept just 11 clean sheets in the EPL. The away side have also failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 8 games.
  • With 63.2% average possession and 525.4 accurate passes per game, Liverpool are more likely to dominate the game than Wolves who average just 49.9 possession and make only 375.0 accurate passes per game.
  • Liverpool have won 8 penalties, the 3rd-most in the EPL this season. Unfortunately for Wolves, their 10 penalties conceded is the 2nd-highest in the Premier League.
  • If Salah plays, he will be a good bet to add to his 22 goals and claim another golden boot. Raul Jimenez, Wolves’ highest goalscorer, has just 6 goals this season but could also trouble the Liverpool rearguard, especially with Van Dijk unlikely to be risked.
