After pulling off one of the greatest comebacks in European football history which saw Liverpool book their Champions League Final spot at the expense of Barcelona, Jurgen Klopp and his team turn their attention to the small matter of clinching the Premier League title. Granted they need the result against Wolves and hope that Brighton can either hold or beat Man City, however as we have already seen this week stranger things can happen in football. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for Liverpool’s domestic defining clash with Wolves while we have plenty of value with our selection of enhanced odds.
Liverpool Need To Focus On The Result
Although Vincent Kompany’s wonder strike against Leicester has meant that the title is almost certainly going to be retained by the reigning champions, with City travelling to an out-of-form Brighton side on the final day, Jurgen Klopp’s outfit nonetheless have to be focused on themselves to take advantage of any unlikely slip-up.
They could have done with an easier opponent than Wolves, who have excelled in their clashes with the ‘Big Six’ this term, while Nuno Espirito’s men can play without any pressure having secured seventh place last weekend.

Wolves Form Against Big Six
The visitors are a highly impressive W6-D4-L3 against the ‘Big Six’ this term across all tournaments, with both teams registering on the board in 11 of the 13 matches, though all but one of those victories came at Molineux and on the road their record is a rather more even W1-D3-L1.
Up against Liverpool themselves, they lost the reverse fixture in the league and while they beat them on home turf in the FA Cup, it was clear Klopp had other priorities as he fielded his second string.

Origi A Trump Card For Klopp
Liverpool’s epic comeback against Barcelona was all the more sensational as they had to make do without both Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino, with Divock Origi handed a rare start, though the Belgian has proven an unlikely hero time and again this season.
He’s netted a goal on average every 96 minutes of action this term and of his six strikes, only one has come with the game or tie under the Reds’ control.
His brace against Barcelona and late goals against Everton and Newcastle were invaluable to the cause, while he also netted what was an equalizer at the time against Wolves in that aforementioned FA Cup clash.
With Klopp’s forward options depleted and Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge appearing ring rusty, the 24-year-old has surely cemented his place in the starting line-up and may also start the Champions League final if Firmino is unable to return to action by then.

The hosts may have kept the necessary clean sheet hosting Barcelona, but it was one of those nights where the stars aligned for them and on another occasion Alisson could easily have been beaten between the sticks.
Indeed, Liverpool’s defence hasn’t been at its imperious best of late, particularly last weekend in the 3-2 win over Newcastle, while they have to sweat on the fitness of left-back Andy Robertson after he was forced off injured at half-time midweek.
Having managed just three clean sheets in their last eight league outings (with two of them against Cardiff and Huddersfield), we’d back both sides to register on the board at some stage in proceedings.
