Jurgen Klopp’s team of thoroughbreds will face what is quite assuredly their most important match of the season when they play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday afternoon in the English Premier League.

It is not so much the size of the opponent Liverpool will face this weekend, but rather the significance of the match. If Manchester City fail to beat Brighton & Hove Albion, the Reds could very well end their 29-year wait for a Premier League title.

If you thought Barcelona would cruise through to the final of the UEFA Champions League by virtue of their 3-0 win over Liverpool in the first leg of the semi-final, then you backed the wrong horse. A madcap night at Anfield saw the inspired hosts overturn the deficit to win 4-0 in one of the most magical nights in European football.

The unlikely comeback started in the seventh minute when Divock Origi guided in Jordan Henderson’s blocked effort from close range. The early goal seemed to have opened up a whole new world of possibilities, although the hosts couldn’t find another goal before the interval.

Forcing the pace after the break paid massive dividends for the Reds, who suddenly found themselves level on aggregate thanks to two quick-fire goals by midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. Coming on for Andy Robertson, who sustained an injury at the stroke of half-time, the Dutch international connected sharply with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s low cross in the 54th minute to make it 2-0 on the night and added another two minutes later when he met Xherdan Shaqiri’s cross with a towering header.

Barcelona were rattled, so much that even the incomparable Lionel Messi couldn’t do much to save face. In the end, the Catalans were shoveled out of the UCL on a 4-3 aggregate defeat after Liverpool found the winning goal through Origi 11 minutes before the final whistle.

The win sees Klopp’s Red army advance to the Champions League final for the second successive season, but first they must deal with a very capable Wolverhampton outfit.

Unlike Liverpool, who were knackered and ready to drop after Tuesday night’s action, Wolves have a well rested side that last took to the turf on Saturday afternoon against Fulham. Nuno Espírito Santo’s men forced through a 1-0 win at Molineux against an already-relegated Fulham side, with the only goal of the game coming in the 75th minute through Leander Dendoncker.

In a team that is as driven and well groomed as Liverpool, predicting a single goalscorer isn’t the easiest of tasks – especially going by what was witnessed during their midweek European encounter. Some seasoned goalscorers have either been hampered by injury or fallen by the wayside, yet the team somehow still manages to churn out victories in the most electrifying of ways.

With Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino both missing against Barcelona due to injury, Divock Origi — despite being maligned for most of the season — proved that he too can come up with the goods when called upon.

Although Origi has netted only six times this season, the goals have gone a long way in advancing Liverpool’s title bid. He embarrassed Jordan Pickford at the death against Everton and also notched the late winner against Newcastle last week.

The Belgian’s inclusion in the starting 11 could once again be justified in what should be Liverpool’s biggest match of the season thus far.

Liverpool vs Wolves betting prediction

With an airtight defence, a lightning attack and only one defeat sustained all season, Liverpool have all the ingredients of a premiership-winning side. Nonetheless, it is Man City who sit atop the table with a one-point lead heading into the last game of the 2018/19 EPL season.

It’s a law of nature that the Reds will be jaded at the weekend having played their hearts out against Barcelona; however, with no clear-cut winner until the final whistle on Sunday, Liverpool should just do their part of the job in the hope that Pep Guardiola’s charges falter against Brighton.
