Match Prediction

Liverpool comes into the final matchday of the season second in the Premier League by a point. They will need help from Brighton if they want to clinch their first League title in 30 years.

We expect Liverpool to get their job done at Anfield. Origi will be high in confidence after his exploits against Barcelona in the midweek. The only cause of concern for Liverpool will be the counter ability of their opponents. Fabinho would need to be at his best to shield the defence from those counters.
