Liverpool News and Form
Liverpool have a very simple task ahead of them on Sunday. With nothing left to lose at this point, they have to go out and collect three points at home against Wolves. Whether that would still be enough to win the title this season will depend on Manchester City’s result against Brighton. In order for Liverpool to get the title, they will need some help from Brighton in that game, namely preventing a win for the Citizens. So not everything is in Liverpool’s own hands.
Their home form is on point at the moment in the Premier League as the Reds are on a six-match winning streak at Anfield and they have remained undefeated there are all season, winning 16 of their 18 games. Liverpool have scored at least two goals in each of their last six home fixtures as well. In total, they have averaged just under three goals per home game this season and 67% of league fixtures at Anfield have made it over 2.5 goals. But this season Liverpool have not just been all about attacking power.
They have been rock solid at the back conceding just 10 goals across the course of the season on home soil. In total, they have claimed a clean sheet in 61% of their home fixtures. Of their 16 home wins recorded this season only four of them have been by a margin of one goal only. Liverpool are on a 14 match scoring streak at home, and home and away have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight. The Reds have also been leading at the half-time break in 12 of their home games, opening the scoring in all but four of their Anfield fixtures.

Wolves News and Form
Outside of the big six, Wolves have been the success story of the Premier League season. They are locked in for a seventh-place finish this season which is a fantastic reward for them. They are currently on a three-match winning streak in the league, going unbeaten in four. In this current sequence of wins, they did collect a victory over Arsenal. Actually the record against the big six teams away from home this season is well worth mentioning.
From their five away games played against the top six finishers, Wolves have produced a fine W1 D3 L1 record. The one defeat in that sequence was at Manchester City when Wolves played with 10 men for a large portion of the fixture. The overall away record of Wolves this season is W6 D5 L7. With just the one victory in their last six away games played (D2 L3), it does not exactly hint at them pulling out the victory at Anfield.
But they are a side who are often hard to get the better of. Wolves have averaged just a shade over a goal per away game this season and only 39% of their away fixtures have made it over 2.5 goals. They haven’t been bad in defence but only from the perspective that they have not conceded heavily in a lot of games. They have managed to claim a clean sheet in only 11% of away games this season. It is interesting that of the seven away defeats which they have suffered this season, five of them have been against teams currently sitting in the bottom six. So they have known how to raise their game against stronger opposition.
