After the dizzying heights of their midweek victory over Barcelona , Liverpool chase the Premier League title against Wolves on Sunday.
Unlike their 4-0 win on Tuesday, Jurgen Klopp’s side need outside help on this occasion, with the Reds reliant on Brighton causing an upset at the AmEx Stadium, while they likely need a victory at Anfield.
Wolves are a side in excellent form, though, having won their last three matches to secure a spot in the Europa League next season.
Will there be a second miracle on Merseyside in a week?

Betting & Match Odds
Liverpool are strong 3/10 favourites with bet365 . A draw is priced at 5/1, while a Wolves upset can be backed at 10/1.
If Liverpool did not believe that winning the Premier League was possible at the beginning of the week, Jurgen Klopp’s side have learned by experience that anything can happen in football.
“It was a week of miracles, of big football moments, and from our point of view, if there could be another big moment on the weekend that would be nice!” the German told the media on Friday.
On Tuesday, they completed one of the most memorable comebacks in Champions League history as they overcame a 3-0 first-leg deficit to run out 4-0 winners at Anfield and book a date with Tottenham at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano on June 1.
“These boys are f****** giants,” Klopp told BT Sport after watching Divock Origi and Georginio Wijnaldum each score doubles on a quite incredible evening.
Come Sunday, though, events are not entirely in their hands. Only if Brighton upset Manchester City on the south coast can the Reds win the league. Meanwhile, they must ensure they overcome a Wolves side that has proven a match for even the best teams in the league over the course of a remarkable season.
“The only thing we can do is win the game,” Klopp said on Friday. “Wolves have shown the whole year they have ambitions, and they enjoyed their football. Nuno Espirito Santo is doing an incredible job there, and that makes our game pretty difficult.”
Certainly, the Portuguese has promised the Reds a rough ride.
“We prepare ourselves for the game like we always did in these two years here,” he said. “It's the final game of the season and we want to compete. It's an important game, a tough challenge. The players rise for every training session.
“Of course it's a big, big game and we want to play it.”
So after one of the most remarkable weeks in the history of the game, when can Liverpool start celebrating the title, if the chance arrives?
“We should not celebrate Brighton until they are 3-0 up with 88 minutes gone!” Klopp joked.
Having witnessed a whole series of incredible results this week, he would not have made the quip without hope, though.
