Jurgen Klopp has made two changes to his starting lineup as Liverpool host Wolves on a final day of the Premier League that could end with a title triumph.

Victory over today’s visitors and dropped points from Man City at Brighton would ensure the Reds’ first league title since 1990, and a first trophy under Klopp.

It would be a remarkable feat if Liverpool pull it off, and Tuesday night’s 4-0 comeback win over Barcelona has fuelled spirits on Merseyside as hopes of another historic turnaround mount.

Klopp has been forced to contend with a series of key absences of late, and as such his teamsheet for the season’s last game at Anfield is restricted.

But regardless the Reds field a strong side, starting with Alisson at the back, with the Brazilian looking to trump countryman Ederson to the Golden Glove award with another clean sheet.

Ahead of Alisson are Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, the Premier League‘s newly crowned Player of the Season Virgil van Dijk and Andy Robertson, with the left-back passed fit after a calf injury.

In midfield, Fabinho takes the holding role, joined by Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum.

And with Roberto Firmino sidelined and resting for the Champions League final, Divock Origi has been named alongside Sadio Mane and the returning Mohamed Salah up front.

Among Klopp’s substitutes are Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge, with plenty of firepower in reserve.

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Wijnaldum; Salah, Mane, Origi

Substitutes: Mignolet, Lovren, Gomez, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Shaqiri, Sturridge

Wolves: Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Neves, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Jonny; Jimenez, Jota

Substitutes: Ruddy, Vinagre, Kilman, Gibbs-White, Cavaleiro, Adama, Costa
