Liverpool News and Form

The plan is pretty simple for Liverpool on Sunday afternoon. They have to drive hard at the three points. That is because they are trying to overcome a one-point deficit to league leaders Manchester City in this final round of action. Was nothing left for them to lose at this point, they just need to get themselves on the front foot. Whether a win will be enough to get them the title will all depend on Manchester City’s result at Brighton. If the Citizens fail to win that, then the door will be open for Liverpool. So the title fate of Liverpool is no longer in their own hands.

Wolves News and Form

Liverpool are one of the big success stories of this season’s Premier League. They will be finishing in seventh place which is a tremendous effort from them only having been promoted from the Championship at the end of last season. Wolves have won their last three Premier League games, going unbeaten in four. Within their last four Premier League wins, Wolves have taken notable victories over Manchester United and Arsenal. Actually their record against the big six teams away from home this season is well worth mentioning.

From their five away games played against the top six finishers, Wolves have produced a fine W1 D3 L1 record. The one loss in that sequence came at the Etihad against Manchester City, when Wolves were reduced to 10 men early on in the game, giving them little chance against the reigning champions. The overall away record of Wolves this season is W6 D5 L7. With just the one victory in their last six away games played (D2 L3) the away win appearing in this fixture doesn’t entirely look to be on the cards. But in order to disrupt Liverpool’s outside chance of the title, they don’t have too. A draw would do that.

Wolves are a team who are resilient and hard to get the better of. They have averaged just over a goal per game hit on the road this season, with only 39% of their away games making it over 2.5 goals. Wolves have not conceded heavily in a whole bunch of away games this season, and their overall defensive record on the road isn’t all that bad, despite them only claiming a clean sheet in 11% of all league fixtures. Interestingly of the seven away losses which Wolves have suffered this season, five of them have been against teams currently sitting in the bottom six. So they have known how to raise their game against stronger opposition.
