Jürgen Klopp will bring the curtain down on his Liverpool tenure when the Reds host Wolves this afternoon. It is sure to be an emotional occasion but Klopp insists the match must take center stage before any farewells.

Liverpool will end the season in third in the Premier League and many would have taken that at the start of the campaign. It means Arne Slot, who is set to be appointed as Klopp's successor, will lead the club into next season's Champions League.

Klopp's players will be eager to end with another three points after a mixed few weeks and the German is set to welcome back three players to his squad.

Liverpool team vs Wolves predicted as Andy Robertson in and Wataru Endō misses out

Andy Robertson missed the draw with Aston Villa on Monday night but has been in training this week and could come back into the starting line-up. Meanwhile, Diogo Jota is fit again having not featured since scoring against Fulham last month.

There was a surprising return to training for Thiago Alcântara too. His season has been restricted to just one cameo appearance in the defeat to Arsenal, where he played just a handful of minutes but he could yet make the bench.

On Thiago, Klopp said in his press conference on Friday: “In a parallel world, I would’ve loved to see the career without injuries…Unfortunately the body didn’t play exactly a part, but he is in a good way. He looked really good in training and I’m sure he will want to give it a try again.”

Liverpool had confirmed that the Spaniard would be leaving at the end of his contract this summer, as will Joël Matip. Both will get the chance to bid farewell to supporters but Matip is continuing his rehabilitation after knee surgery so will definitely not feature.

Young midfielder Bobby Clark has enjoyed a fine breakthrough season but a back injury ended his campaign early and he remains sidelined. Ben Doak, who had hopes of featuring for Scotland at Euro 2024, has not played since he had surgery on a knee problem back in December.
