Mohamed Salah is expected to return for these Liverpool v Wolves predictions, after missing the midweek victory over Barcelona. Roberto Firmino is likely to miss out though after he didn’t even make the bench on Tuesday. Andy Robertson is a doubt after taking a kick to the leg from Luis Suarez, but he’s hoping to be available along with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Naby Keita and Adam Lallana are both out though.

Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo has no injuries or suspensions heading into this season’s final Premier League football betting predictions. Wolves have led a charmed life on the fitness front all season, and that’s continued right to the end. With seventh position guaranteed and no chance of finishing any higher or lower, Nuno could give some minutes to squad players like Helder Costa, Adama Traore, Ivan Cavaleiro and Morgan Gibbs-White.
Liverpool vs Wolves prediction, preview and betting tips
Liverpool defied all the odds and football predictions to make it into the Champions League final this week. Now, the Reds are hoping for another miracle on Sunday. They need Brighton to get a result at home to Manchester City, while taking care of their own business here. It won’t be an easy game against Wolves though.
The Wanderers have been excellent on their return to the Premier League this season. Liverpool also need to come back down from the euphoria of their incredible comeback against Barcelona on Tuesday, and concentrate on finishing their domestic campaign with the win they need. They certainly took care of business in midweek, thrashing one of the best teams in Europe 4-0 to overturn a 3-0 deficit from the first leg of their Champions League semi-final with Barca.
That performance showed the character of Klopp’s team, which they’ll have on show once again in this Liverpool v Wolves prediction. The Wanderers may have the perfect style of play for trying to soak up pressure from the big teams before hitting them on the break, but this Liverpool side is made of seriously stern stuff. You only need to look at the fact Salah and Firmino were injured in midweek, while Georginio Wijnaldum came on at half-time for the injured Robertson to score a brace.
There’s depth to the Liverpool squad as well as vast amounts of quality. Just one defeat in the entire season so far is testament to that. In the face of a must-win game, it’s very difficult to see them slipping up. This has been one of the most incredible title races we’ve ever seen, and the Reds will push City all the way this weekend. At 1/3 though, we’re looking to improve the value on the home win in the football betting odds.
Wolves have attacked with real purpose and precision this season, but Liverpool have kept 20 clean sheets in the league. Reds goalkeeper Alisson is locked in a battle with compatriot Ederson of City to win the Golden Glove award for highest number of clean sheets. Barcelona, with Lionel Messi and Suarez in their ranks, couldn’t break this Liverpool defence down when desperate for a goal. The Reds are evens to keep another clean sheet on Sunday.
We’re backing the hosts to win to nil, which is 6/5 with bet365 in your Liverpool vs Wolves betting tips. If you’re after both teams to score odds, we’re backing against them at 20/23. We’re going for a 2-0 home win, which is also the score Liverpool beat Wolves by in their first Premier League meeting this season. That’s priced at 6/1 in your football score predictions, rising to 28/1 with Divock Origi scoring first.
Liverpool vs Wolves first goalscorer predictions
Origi also hit a double against Barcelona, including the eventual winner from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s brilliant quick-thinking corner. The Belgian striker will hope to start with Firmino set to miss out again, after also scoring a late winner last weekend against Newcastle United. He is 23/5 with 888sport to open the scoring like he did against Barca. Mo Salah is likely to come back into the starting XI after his concussion. He heads into the final day of the season with a two-goal lead in the race for the Golden Boot. Salah is 15/4 in the first goalscorer odds, and 19/1 to strike first in a 2-0 Liverpool win.
