Wolves captain Conor Coady has insisted he is aiming to end Liverpool’s Premier League title dreams on Sunday – even if it ruins his friendships.

The boyhood Red came through the ranks in the club’s academy and started his career in a Reds shirt, eventually leaving Melwood in 2014 after making two senior appearances.

But he still wants to win at Anfield in their season finale.

Liverpool are a point behind Manchester City in the race for the title and need to beat Wolves and hope their rivals slip up at Brighton to win their first league crown since 1990.

Coady was born in Liverpool and is a lifelong Reds fan, but will put his loyalties aside when he returns to Anfield.

“There’s no reason we can’t do a job there,” he told the Express & Star.

“We’ve played some good stuff this year, there’s been some highs, some lows, but we’ve got a certain way of playing, we’ll stick with that and hopefully end the season on a high.

“Every week I look at Liverpool and hope they win. I supported them growing up but I’m playing for Wolves now, and no matter who we are playing against, we go there to win and that’s the mentality we’ll all have.

“My mates are all season-ticket holders there and keep saying a few things about it.

“I supported Liverpool growing up but I play for Wolves now. What they’ve done this year has been absolutely incredible, the title race has been amazing.

“We go there to win, that’s the mentality we’ve built over the past two years.”

Wolves have been the surprise package of the Premier League this season.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been the next-best outside the dominating top-six, securing seventh place which will book a Europa League qualifying spot if Manchester City beat Watford in next week’s FA Cup final.

It is the highest finish of a newly-promoted club in the Premier League since Ipswich came fifth in 2001.

And Coady insists his side will be full of confidence they can get a result against a Liverpool team that has only lost once all season.

“This is our first year back in the Premier League and we have the chance to get 60 points which would be amazing,” added the defender.

“We’ve got a certain way of playing and we will stick to that. Hopefully we can end the season on a high.

“It’s a good game, looking at what they have done and our season. It’s important we enjoy the game because when you do that, you play well.”
