Liverpool v Wolves: Prediction, Tips and Odds

Jurgen Klopp will bring the curtain down on his hugely successful eight-and-a-half-years in charge of Liverpool when the Reds entertain Wolves on the final day of the Premier League season.

Klopp announced in January his intention to leave the club, and although he was not able to mastermind a second Premier League title during his final campaign in charge, he will depart as a legend having won eight major honours since succeeding Brendan Rodgers in the dugout in October 2015.

The German's impending departure is sure to make for an emotional day at Anfield and Liverpool, who will finish third regardless of Sunday's result, should ensure he goes out on a high against mid-table Wolves.

Liverpool v Wolves betting tips and predictions

Liverpool to win and both teams to score - 11/10

Klopp arrived at Anfield known for his brand of "heavy metal football" and he has certainly lived up to those expectations, winning 298 of his 490 matches in charge and treating supporters to plenty of goals, drama and success along the way.

That high-octane style has remained throughout the latter stages of this season, with Liverpool's last five matches featuring 22 goals - 12 for and 10 against.

While defensive vulnerabilities - they are without a clean sheet in 10 league matches - have contributed to their title challenge fading over the spring, Liverpool have still remained a winning machine on home soil.

No side has picked up more home points than Klopp's men in the top flight this season, with 14 wins and just one defeat across their 18 matches underlining the superiority they boast at Anfield.

There is a similar superiority when Liverpool face Wolves, as Sunday's hosts have won 13 of the last 14 league meetings between the two sides, the only exception being a 3-0 reverse at Molineux last season.

Wolves are also without a league victory at Anfield since December 2010 and that is unlikely to change on Sunday, with a run of just one win and six defeats across their last nine league games firmly suggesting that the season has petered out for Gary O'Neil's side.

A third-straight defeat to end the campaign looks on the cards for Wolves, but Liverpool's far from perfect defence can be breached by the visitors, who have scored in three games on the spin and also netted in September's reverse fixture that ended in a 3-1 victory for Klopp's team.

Cody Gakpo to score anytime - 11/10

Liverpool's forwards have shared the goals around this season, with Mohamed Salah, Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo, Diogo Jota and Luiz Diaz all going well beyond the double-figures mark across all competitions.

Of that quintet it is perhaps Dutch international Gakpo that is ending the season the strongest, as he has scored in back-to-back games against Tottenham and Aston Villa.

Gakpo was also a scorer when Liverpool beat Wolves at Molineux earlier this season, netting the equaliser after Hwang Hee-Chan had given the hosts an early lead.

Having started four of Liverpool's last five league matches - the only exception in that run being the Merseyside derby defeat at Everton - Gakpo is likely to feature in Klopp's final XI on Sunday as well.

That will boost the 25-year-old's hopes of getting on the scoresheet for a third successive game, as he looks to end the season strongly ahead of representing the Netherlands at this summer's Euros.

Liverpool over 0.5 cards - 1/1

With neither side having much to play for and the focus being on Klopp's farewell, this shouldn't be a bad tempered game featuring a flurry of yellow cards.

However, it is odds on at 8/11 that Liverpool do not pick up a single card in the match, while it is 1/1 they receive at least one yellow, which is surely where the value lies.

Liverpool may be among the more well-disciplined teams in the division, but they have still received 64 yellow cards from their 37 matches to date.

At least one Reds player has been booked across their last four matches, with three receiving cautions in the defeat at Everton and two in the draw at West Ham.

All it takes is for one mistimed challenge or a perceived bit of time wasting and referee Chris Kavanagh could be tempted into dishing out at least one card to a home player.
