Liverpool and Wolverhampton end the 2021-22 season at Anfield with different goals to achieve. The Reds could be crowned champions in the event of a win and a loss or draw by Manchester City, while Wolverhampton's main objective this Sunday will be to end a somewhat disappointing campaign on a high note.
Liverpool get to this match in second place of the Premier League, with a record showing 27 wins, eight draws, and two losses. The Reds need to win this game and a loss by Pep Guardiola's team to win their second EPL title in three years, and judging by their previous record against the Wolves, that feat does not seem hard to accomplish. Nevertheless, the game will have some challenges for Klopp and Co. despite entering the match as heavy favorites.
The first of those challenges will be to put up a reliable squad on the pitch considering some of the injury absences suffered by Klopp's crew recently. Some of those may include Mohamed Salah and Virgil Van Dijk being unavailable for the game. Either way, Liverpool seem to have the tools to claim a victory here and hope for the best in the other fixture.
On the other side of the pitch, Wolverhampton have been quite inconsistent during the season, and that has reflected in their poor form of late with no wins in their last six matches (two draws, four losses). To make matters worse, Bruno Lage's men have not been able to score a single goal in their last three games, which has forced the boss to bench some of his best players, such as striker Raúl Jiménez.
Wolverhampton are currently ranked eighth in the tournament with 51 points, but a loss here could see them drop to tenth place in case Leicester and Brighton win their respective matches on Sunday. With no hope whatsoever of reaching European competition spots with a win here, it is safe to say that the Wolves will be satisfied if the end result of this game does not end with a thrashing in Liverpool's favor.
Here are the key elements we have to consider prior to the start of this exciting game.
