For the first time since after being crowned the champions, Liverpool will play in front of 2,000 fans this weekend in the Premier League. The side will be playing host to Wolves at Anfield on Sunday with kickoff at 10:15 pm.
Jurgen Klopp’s heads into the match with only goal difference keeping them off the table’s top. However, Wolves have a chance to move one point close to their opponents if they end the longest unbeaten home run for Liverpool.
It took Liverpool thirty years to claim the Premier League title, but fans will have to wait till Sunday to recognize the person’s achievement. 2,000 fans at Anfield will be enough to cheer on their winning side.
One thing that remains constant despite the absence of supporters at Anfield is their imperious home record. Their unbeaten home record currently stands at 64 matches- the second-longest run in English football history. The side has won 29 out of their last 30, picking up an incredible 88 points from the possible 90.
Wolves will have to change their starting XI for those who are fit to play. The side has a cause of optimism after beating the champions away from home last season to a triumphant 2-0 win over Manchester City. Their last weekend ended in a serious head fracture for Raul Jimenez but managed to finish with a win.
