Preview | May 22

Liverpool-Wolverhampton Wanderers

Will the hosts' good form continue?

What twists will the final day bring? Liverpool hope to extend their streak of two straight Premier League victories at home against Wolves. A positive result would help the Reds' efforts to jump Man City and move up into the 1st spot in the table. Liverpool should feel that type of performance is within their grasp, as they defeated Wolves 1-0 in their last league meeting.

Liverpool | WWDWW | 2nd | Top Scorer: Mohamed Salah (22)

Liverpool arrive in the midst of a stellar stretch, unbeaten in the last 18 games. The Reds are unselfish in their attack. They record on average 16.1 passes into the box per game (2nd in the EPL), while sporting the league's highest number of assists. Trent Alexander-Arnold will be looking to keep up the fantastic distributing after recording 16 passes into the box in their last 5.

Wolves | DLDLL | 8th | Top Scorer: R. Jiménez (6)

Wolves come in looking for a boost of confidence after a paltry 2 points over their last 5 matches. A low xG (expected goals) means a lack of quality opportunities to score. And their average xG of 1.0 over the last 5 matches has been 4th lowest in the league. Keeper José Sá has felt the pressure as of late, allowing 11 goals in their last 5. Fans should keep hope, top aggressor Nélson Semedo has played well, recording 1.5 tackles per match in their last 5.

Liverpool-Wolves Prediction: 3-1

It looks to be a tough task ahead for Wolves here, they'll need to have their shooting boots on if they're to outscore Liverpool's attack.

Did you know? The biggest victory for either team in their Premier League history was a 4-0 drubbing Liverpool handed out in 2020.

Can the Reds make it three wins in a row? Will Wolves pick up a long awaited three points? Now that you're informed, place a bet on the match, and much more at PokerStars Sports.
