Wolves’ season may have burned out after a promising start. But they still have a chance to influence the Premier League title battle this weekend. We will also be seeing an exciting midfield battle between Wolves’ Ruben Neves and Reds’ Thiago
So, we have reached the end of the wire. And it all comes down to this.
Liverpool are one point behind Man City coming into Sunday’s final day. With Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa visiting the Etihad, the title implications are plain.
The Reds welcome Wolves to Anfield for what should be a straightforward victory. But a last-gasp Divock Origi goal was required at Molineux earlier this season. So it won’t be simple.
Wolves Season Overview
We completed our projections at the start of the season, and we all settled on ninth place – thus, the Wolves’ season has gone as predicted.
But it’ll be one of those campaigns where we look at the final table and wonder what might have been.
Wolves’ form over the last 15 games has been relegation-like. If this trend continues into next season, we will be in significant trouble.
The club also saw one of the worst transfer pieces in form of Adama Traore leaving for Barcelona just to sit on the bench.
Is Lage the right man for the job?
Bruno Lage hasn’t gotten a fair shake of the whip.
These are Nuno Espirito Santo’s players. Except for Jose Sa, Francisco Trincao, and Hwang Hee-chan.
Why would anyone anticipate anything else?
Most of the time, I will seriously judge a manager after three transfer windows. In my opinion, it’s difficult to put your stamp on a team in anything less.
So, sure, he is the right man for me. But the first genuine revamp we’ve had since promotion will take place this summer, and it could go any way.
Key Battles at Anfield: Wolves’ Ruben Neves vs Liverpool’s Thiago
Ruben Neves has been a standout player for Wolves. He has won the goal of the season for his ‘chip’ against Watford.
The Portuguese might be playing his last game for the club. And in his last game, he might be up to a task against the legendary Thiago.
Thiago has been one of the most underrated midfielders of all time.
The guy can run the game, make crucial cutting passes, and is the key piece of Liverpool’s midfield puzzle.
He has been in superb-form winning MOTM in the UCL semi-final against Villareal.
This midfield battle will be really exciting to watch.
