Danny Higginbotham believes it would be a massive turn up for Brighton to deny Manchester City the points needed to secure the Premier League crown.
The Citizens head to the Amex Stadium on Sunday knowing that a win will secure back-to-back titles for the first time in the club’s history.
However, Klopp’s men will capitalise on any slip-up if they beat Wolves at Anfield to win their first-ever Premier League title with the last triumph dated back to 1990.

The Reds will be buzzing after their heroic comeback against Barcelona to secure a place in the final of the Champions League alongside Spurs.
And many Liverpool fans will be hoping that wind of fortune extends to the final day of the League.
But, speaking on Sky Sports News, Higginbotham said he cannot see City slipping up against Chris Hughton’s side
“There always has to be a doubt but it would be incredible, it would be absolutely incredible and it would be a massive turn up if Brighton were to get a point off Manchester City,” he said.
“I just think what Brighton have done throughout this season, they’ve just got over the line now. I know when you’re down at the bottom there’s so much pressure on you. When you get safe it’s just a complete release of pressure.
“One of two things can happen, you can go and play with freedom or you relax a little bit more and a team like Manchester City then can take you apart.

“It’s not over but I would find it incredible if Manchester City didn’t go to Brighton and get what is required.”
Man City have triumphed in their last two outings against Brighton this season, the last outing ended 1-0 in the FA Cup semi-finals.
