Wolves will be bidding to enter the top half of the league table with a win over Liverpool this weekend at Anfield. They are 13th in the league standings and have recently been decimated by a number of injuries that could impact their chances of finishing in the top half of the table.

They will then take on Liverpool, who are set to finish third in the Premier League table. Their third-place ranking has already been assured but all eyes would be on Klopp’s farewell game against Wolverhampton this weekend.

Gary O’Neil’s side have suffered defeats in three of their last five Premier League games which has seen them drop to 13th in the league table. A victory this weekend could change their outlook on the remaining fixtures this season and help them secure a top half on the final matchday of the 2023/24 season.

Meanwhile, Wolves have also failed to gather any consistent runs this season and will enter this game off the back of a 3-1 loss at the hands of Crystal Palace in the weekend clash. Gary O’Neil’s side are struggling these past few weeks and will look for a final push to finish the season in the top half of the table.
