Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp comments on Wolves ahead of Sunday's game at Anfield

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes it is not likely his side will win the Premier League title on Sunday, as his side host Wolves at Anfield.

The Reds won their penultimate fixture against Southampton last night to keep the pressure on Manchester City.

They actually fell behind thanks to a Nathan Redmond goal.

But they hit back through Takumi Minamino and then Joel Matip.

Just a single point separates the teams going into the final round of fixtures.

City host Aston Villa, while Liverpool face Wolves and Klopp has given his thoughts ahead of the game at Anfield.

He said (BBC Sport): “It’s our home game, last home game of season. The atmosphere will be outstanding. We’ll try to use it. We have to do our job. Football is a tricky game sometimes. We’ll see but you have to focus on yourselves.

“We have to first win our game. It is not like we are talking about Wolves like they are not there.

“If I was in the other situation, then I don’t feel like I am champion already. From my point of view, in second, you are thinking that of course City will win that game. But it is football.”

Of course, Wolves are currently in abysmal form.

Bruno Lage’s side had really gone off the boil in recent weeks, and are on a six-game winless run at the moment.

Wolves may be hoping to spoil things for Liverpool. But it will be very difficult for Wanderers given the awful form of late.

And Anfield is undoubtedly one of the hardest places to go, and as Klopp suggests, the atmosphere is likely to be electric.

Wolves need to finish 2021/22 with a bit of pride, as Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp lie in wait

Wanderers finishing the season without a win since April 2 would be extremely disappointing.

It’s very possible it could happen though. Liverpool away is obviously a very tough fixture.

Wolves just at least need to give the travelling fans a performance they can be proud of.

Wanderers were so close to taking a point off Liverpool in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, so they have shown they can go toe-to-toe with Klopp’s side.

Hopefully, the idea of spoiling Liverpool’s title bid can serve as the motivation.
