Liverpool had to overcome a halftime deficit to secure their third come-from-behind victory in the Premier League this season, as they triumphed 3-1 over Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The match saw a dramatic turnaround, with Cody Gakpo and Harvey Elliott playing pivotal roles. Elliott sealed the win for Liverpool with a precise strike from just outside the penalty area in the 90th minute.
