8:15 pm: Players to watch out for!

Luis Diaz, Liverpool: The Colombian has become a menace for the opposition defence along the flanks and has been instrumental in delivering crosses for attackers at the center of the box.

He played a crucial role to seal Liverpool's place in the Champions League final and has four goals and three assists in the Premier League so far.

Conor Coady, Wolverhampton Wanderers: The Wolves captain, despite being a centre-back, is the joint third-highest goal scorer for the club this season.

Coady is known for his aerial threat and was instrumental in stealing a point against Chelsea through a st-minute equaliser.

8:00 pm:  Liverpool has created a fortress at Anfield!

Liverpool is unbeaten in its last 22 Premier League home games (W17 D5). If it avoids defeat against Wolves, it will be the fifth time it has gone through an entire Premier League campaign without losing at home, the joint-most of any team (Chelsea also 5).

Pep Guardiola's side was on the receiving end of a heartbreak in the Champions League when Real Madrid eliminated the Cityzens in the semifinals at Santiago Bernabeu. However, the team has moved on since, registering two wins and one draw in its next three matches.

Liverpool, on the other hand, is enjoying a phenomenal purple patch, having won the League Cup and FA Cup already this season. Jurgen Klopp's side sits a point below City with a lower goal difference as well.

The team is eyeing a quadruple, something no Premier League club has ever achieved and is halfway through, with two in the bag.

As it steps out for the final Premier League fixture, it will eye not only a win (preferably one with a big margin), but also either a draw or loss for City.

Who is Liverpool playing on the final day?

Liverpool will be playing Wolverhampton Wanderers, which is placed eighth in the league table and has 51 points from 37 matches.

The Wolves are without a win in their last six matches and had won a match back in early April against Steven Gerrard's Aston Villa - a side crucial to Liverpool's title hopes.

But, we will come to that later.

Klopp's side has made its home a fortress again after a loss to Burnley in January last here and has not lost a single Premier League match here this season. Whether Wolves  can breach it and cause a major upset remains to be seen on Matchday 38.

Team Form: Liverpool's last Premier League loss this season came last year, when Leicester City beat it 1-0. Klopp's side has remained unfazed since, with 15 wins in 18 league matches.

Wolves, on the other hand, has lost five of its last 10 matches and comes into the match with a 1-1 draw against Norwich City.

Liverpool last five matches:

  • Win: Southampton 1-2 Liverpool

  • Loss: Wolves 1-5 Man City
  • Draw: Chelsea 2-2 Wolves
