Liverpool might be out of the title race but there is bound to be a party-like atmosphere in the final game of the season at home to Wolves as it's Jurgen Klopp's last game in charge of the Reds. The visitors won't arrive at Anfield just to make up the numbers as three points could take Wolves up three places and into the top ten.

Player to watch – Mohamed Salah

Mo Salah has enjoyed another successful season for Liverpool personally, even though Jurgen Klopp's side failed to claim a major trophy in the German's final season with the club.

However, Liverpool did win the League Cup so it hasn't been a trophyless season for Salah or Klopp and the Egyptian top scores and leads the way on assists.

Will Salah shine in Klopp's final game?

Salah has 18 goals and 10 assists in the Premier League this season and you wouldn't bet against the former Roma star adding to either tally on Sunday against Wolves.
