A perfect day for Liverpool to end their 2019 is with a bang when they face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp will be hoping his Liverpool side continue the fine form they are in after extending their lead at the top of the league. The Reds beat Leicester City in what could be a crucial game in the title race by 4-0 with Liverpool continuing their unbeaten run.

Wolves on the other hand managed to come from behind to beat current champions, Manchester City 3-2 with Adama Traore behind the brains. Despite a poor start to the season, Wolves have recovered well and are on the chase for a top four finish.
