Wolves 1-2 Liverpool
In the second most significant match of super Sunday, Liverpool must be on their game if they hope to keep their chances of winning their first Premier League title alive. Liverpool has had a truly incredible season that deserves at least one trophy. That may come in the form of the Champions League or the Premier League or they may leave for the summer empty-handed. The final possibility is improbable given the unrelenting quality of this unique squad that has spurred them to countless last-minute goals and inspiring comebacks. Liverpool will be boosted by the return of Salah to the lineup who will make up for any tired legs following the Reds remarkable comeback against Barcelona from last Tuesday.
The Portuguese National team, sorry, Wolverhampton Wanderers, pose a tough final match. Wolves have an impressive record against the top 6, securing at least a draw or a win against every single side they have faced in the Premier League besides Liverpool – the club they knocked out of the FA Cup. Neves, Jota, Jimenez, Dendoncker, and Moutinho are all players of extremely high quality and fitness who will relish one final opportunity to stick it to the top six. Wolves have produced a remarkable campaign for their first season back in the Premier League and will be finishing this weekend as competitors in next year’s Europa League having officially secured 7th place.
Once again, Liverpool’s quality will overcome their opponents. Don’t be surprised, however, when Wolves spring a surprising counter-attack through Neves and Jota that results in a goal. Even if they do find the net, Liverpool will score more. Nothing will stop this Liverpool side from finishing the season with a win and, quite possibly, a Premier League trophy.
Manchester City 3-0 Brighton
When Vincent Kompany scored a pile driver of a goal against Leicester last weekend, rumor has it that Manchester City fans could hear shouts of exasperation ringing out all the way from Liverpool. It will take a momentous effort to stop Pep’s robots from savagely hoisting their second straight Premier League trophy this weekend. Unfortunately, Brighton is the team standing in their way.
Having recently secured safety in the League, Brighton has little more to play for than their pride which, if you weren’t aware, doesn’t run very high in the land of Brighton.
But, hey, nothing is impossible! Maybe Chris Hughton’s men can pull off the most stunning result of the season and scramble a draw from the City machine. Right?
No. No, they cannot.
Congratulations, Manchester City. Ladies and Gentlemen, I now present your 2018-2019 Premier League Champions. Ugh.Read More
