It’s judgment day for Liverpool, with Reds fans no doubt having everything crossed that Brighton can get something out of their match against Manchester City.
Pep Guardiola’s side currently lead the Premier League table by a solitary point on 95, with Liverpool matching the Citizens all the way in 94.
Whoever finishes runner-up will have the highest second place points tally in Premier League history.
Liverpool have their own job to do as well, with Wolves travelling to Anfield having already secured an impressive seventh place finish in their first season in the top flight under Nuno Espirito Santo.
Jurgen Klopp could be enshrined in Liverpool folklore if things go his way in the next few weeks, as a monumental comeback against Barcelona meant that they will face Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in the final of the Champions League.

During Liverpool’s unbelievable 4-0 win over the Catalan side to overturn a 3-0 away deficit, fans were noticeably booing former Reds Luis Suarez and Phillipe Coutinho.
The former was ridiculed for celebrating his goal in the first leg, whilst Coutinho was jeered for forcing his way out of the club back in January of 2018.
The Brazilian’s poor performance at Anfield – and in fact all season in La Liga – led to a question posed to Liverpool fans on Twitter.
A Twitter handle named Castle of the Kop asked: ‘Would you like to take Coutinho back to Liverpool?’
The response was rather telling:
So, its’ pretty safe to say that fans having gotten over any impact that Coutinho made, and can you blame them?
The club could be on course for their most successful season in the Premier League era without the playmaker, so it looks like the club made a shrewd bit of business offloading the 26-year-old for £124 million.
