The Reds have been amongst the goals this season, scoring 84 goals in 37 games, an average of 2.27 goals a game. Liverpool have been less consistent in defence as usual, conceding 41 goals and keeping nine clean sheets.

Wolves, on the other hand, sit 13th in the Premier League in the last week of the season. In 37 games, Wolves have 13 wins, seven draws and 17 losses which leaves them on 46 points, two points from Brighton in tenth.

In terms of attack this season, Wolves have been average, scoring 50 goals in 37 games which is an average of 1.35 goals a game. Wolves have struggled somewhat at the other end of the pitch, conceding 63 goals and keeping five clean sheets.

Liverpool and Wolves have met 115 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming all the way back in 1894. Liverpool have the better record in the fixture with 60 wins in comparison to Wolves’ 37 wins, the other 18 games ending in a draw.

The last five games in this fixture have seen three wins for Liverpool, one win for Wolves and one draw. This tie doesn’t usually see both sides on the scoresheet, both teams scoring just twice in the last five games.

Jarrod Bowen gave West Ham the lead on the stroke of halftime but Andrew Robertson equalised for Liverpool just minutes into the second half. An own goal from West Ham goalkeeper Alphonse Areola put Liverpool ahead but a goal from Michail Antonio just nine minutes later forced a 2 - 2 draw.

Liverpool were back to winning ways against Tottenham. Salah opened the scoring in the 16th minute and Robertson was on the scoresheet again right on halftime. Early in the second half Cody Gakpo and Harvey Elliott added to Liverpool’s lead and even with the late goals from Richarlison and Son Heung-min, Liverpool picked up a 4 - 2 win.
