Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Liverpool will look to overtake Man City and regain the EPL trophy when they take on Wolverhampton at Anfield on the last day of the season. Jurgen Klopp rested several first-team regulars in a 2-1 win over Southampton, but he is going to field the best possible side against the Wolves. Mohamed Salah should recover in time to take part in the decider, as well as Virgil van Dijk, but Fabinho remains in the recovery room. Sadio Mane and Trent Alexander-Arnold return to the starting XI as well.
Wolverhampton, on the other hand, aim to clinch 8th position, but given Liverpool’s splendid form, we do not believe that the underdogs are capable of grabbing something from the match. Defensive trio Semedo – Saiss – Kilman remains in the recovery room, speaking of the visiting team. In the first half of the season Liverpool defeated Wolverhampton thanks to Divock Origi’s late goal.
Highlighted Player (Sadio Mané):
Sadio Mane is a Senegalese footballer who plays for Liverpool as a winger. Mane was born in Sedhiou Senegal on April 10, 1992, but he made his senior debut at French club Metz. In 2012 he moved to Red Bull Salzburg, with the pacey winger scoring 31 goals in 63 appearances for the club in the Austrian Bundesliga.
Mane then decided to take a step forward in his career as he joined famous Premier League club Liverpool for a fee of £34 million, signing a five-year contract with the Reds. The Senegal international quickly established himself as a first-team regular at Liverpool and, no doubt, he helped the Anfield outfit make it to the 2017/2018 Champions League final.
Speaking of trophies, Sadio Mane won the Austrian Bundesliga with Salzburg in the 2013/2014 season. In 2017 he was named Liverpool player of the year for the 2016/2017 season. Sadio Mane made his Senegal debut in 2012 and he was part of the Senegal team that participated at the 2012 Olympic tournament.
