There is one more river to cross for Jürgen Klopp and his team in the English Premier League, but it remains to be seen if they find anything on the other side. Liverpool take on Wolves on the final day of the 2021/2022 season for a shot at the title should Manchester City fail to win. The match will kick off at 20:30 IST on May 22, and it promises to be a high-drama and entertaining duel.

Liverpool Form and Team News

Although their destiny is out of their hands as things stand, Liverpool have dug in repeatedly this season to keep the pressure on Manchester City. The Reds have already won two trophies this season, at Chelsea’s expense, but they will need some help from Aston Villa, coached by a Liverpool legend, Steven Gerrard. 

If Villa earns a draw and Liverpool win, the Reds will have their hands on another league title. The quadruple-chasing side have won all of their last seven meetings with Wolves and also have the most wins to nil at home for all Premier League sides this season. Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, and Mohammed Salah may not be fully fit to play against Wolves due to their recent injuries.

Wolves Form and Team News

Arguably the League’s most conservative sides, Wolves are poised to finish in the top ten for the third time in four seasons. They have endured a disappointing run of late and are winless in their last six matches (two losses and four draws). Although they have little to play for, one should never rule out the possibility of Wolves crashing the Liverpool party on Sunday.

Bruno Lage’s side have picked up more points away from home (27) than at home (24) and are only one of five teams to manage the feat. They have also managed to keep their opponents at bay while failing to score themselves in the first half of their last five league games away from home. They will be without Max Kilman, Romain Saiss, and Nelson Semedo for the trip to Anfield, as they are sidelined with injuries.

Tipster’s Angle

Liverpool will most likely field a stronger side than the team that managed a 2-1 victory over Southampton. They need a win desperately to be in the position to profit if Manchester City slip up. With a superior head-to-head record against Wolves, Liverpool have the upper hand going into this fixture. Here are our thoughts on this fixture:

Tip: Liverpool to Win @ 1.16

The Reds have only lost once at home in all competitions, a one-nil defeat to Inter in the UEFA Champions League. With seven draws and 21 wins, they have been formidable on home turf. 

Liverpool have more on the line compared to Wolves, and they have an Anfield crowd solidly behind them. Liverpool to win is available on the sportsbook at 1.16 odds.

Tip: Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.12

Although the previous two meetings between these sides ended 1-0 in favor of Liverpool, we expect more goals in this encounter. The Reds will be looking to seal a comprehensive victory and put this match beyond their visitors to avoid any drama in the dying minutes of the match.

Wolves came back from two goals down to earn a 2-2 draw at Chelsea a couple of weeks ago and are capable of unearthing surprises. The outcome for over 1.5 goals is available on the Paripesa sportsbook at 1.12 odds.


As Liverpool chase a record-breaking clean sweep of all titles, the best they can do is win their game and hope for a favorable outcome in the Manchester City game to be champions of England. The stage is set for a breathtaking ending to the season, and we will be watching with our hearts in our mouths!
