Ahead of the final game of Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as Liverpool tenure, here is some early Wolves team news.

Gary O’Neil, who was interviewed for the Liverpool job, will come back to his former place of employment for the last game of the 2023/24 season.

O’Neil has previously been part of Liverpool’s management having been appointed assistant manager for Liverpool’s under-23 squad in 2020.

This game also marks the end of an era for Liverpool, as it will be Jurgen Klopp’s final match as the Reds’ boss.

Klopp, who has transformed the club since his arrival in 2015, leading them to a Premier League title, Champions League triumph, and multiple other trophies, will undoubtedly receive a heartfelt farewell from the Anfield faithful.

The atmosphere will be electric, with fans eager to honor Klopp’s contributions and celebrate his remarkable tenure.

Wolves, on the other hand, have experienced a mixed season but have managed to secure safety from relegation, giving them the freedom to play without pressure.

They will want to end the season strongly and work towards their goals for next season, which will likely be breaking into the top half of the Premier League and starting to eye the European spaces.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Wolves injury list ahead of their visit to Anfield this coming weekend.

Fortunately for Gary O’Neil and his side, Wolves are not suffering with too many injuries at this stage of the season.

Craig Dawson

The former West Ham man has been one of Wolves’ best players since his transfer from the Hammers last summer.

The 34-year-old racked up 25 Premier League appearances before needing a surgery for a groin problem sustained in March.

O’Neil has already confirmed that the Dawson will be out for the remainder of 2023/24.

Status: Ruled out.

Leon Chiwome

The 18-year-old attacker, who has dual citizenship for England and Zimbabwe, sustained ankle injury in training during April.

Speaking in last month, O’Neil confirmed that the youngster would be out until the rest of the season (via Premier Injuries)

“He picked up a nasty ankle injury in training in a collision with one of the players. Leon won’t be available for the rest of the season, unfortunately for him and us.”

Status: Ruled out.

Pedro Neto

The Portuguese winger is one of Wolves’ better players and is a threat whenever he plays.

He had a good game against Liverpool at the beginning of the season and is a player that has been linked to the Reds plenty of times before.

However, the 23-year-old is injury prone and has missed large parts of the season through injury.

Currently nursing a thigh injury, Neto did not make the matchday squad for Wolves’ disappointing 4-1 loss to Crystal Palace last weekend.

Ahead of that Palace game, O’Neil said:

“He’s training, but he’s maybe not done enough at high speeds to be able to guarantee that it’s not a risk for him, so there’ll be no Pedro.”

Status: Wait & See.
