Ticket prices for Liverpool's final Premier League game of the season have rocketed to nearly £6,000 with online re-sellers set to make a huge profit.

With the league title race set to go down to the final match, fans are scrambling to purchase tickets.

Live Football Tickets are advertising one ticket for the game against Wolves at Anfield on May 12 for £5,950.

The cheapest ticket listed on the re-selling website is £600. The most expensive ticket the club's official website lists is £59 in Anfield's new Main Stand.

The resale of football tickets is illegal under anti-hooliganism laws unless they are sold through the club's authorised service.

The club can't, however, do anything to stop fans from selling their tickets at a higher price.

Demand for tickets to any Liverpool home game has soared in recent weeks, with the club aiming to win the league for the first time since 1990.

Jurgen Klopp's side are first in the table and two points ahead of title rivals Manchester City.

City, however, have a game in hand over Liverpool with the clubs having five and four games left to play respectively.

Liverpool supporters faced difficulties last season when trying to purchase tickets for the Champions League final against Real Madrid in Kiev.

On website Ticketbis, the cheapest seat in Liverpool's section, face value £140, was priced at £1,181.

Liverpool fans were critical of how supposedly fellow supporters were buying tickets only to sell them for huge profit on re-selling sites.

'The situation is ridiculous,' Liverpool fan Neil Atkinson told the BBC at the time. 'People who don't support either club will end up with tickets and look at it as an opportunity to make money.'

Liverpool also warned supporters that 'under no circumstances should tickets for the final be purchased from unofficial sources... The club is aware of instances of tickets being sold at extortionate prices'.
