Wolves faced a heartbreaking 0-1 defeat against Liverpool in the dying moments of the match. This shows how Liverpool have continued their dominant run in the Premier League in pursuit of the title. A late turnaround strike from Divock Origi grabbed them 3 points.
It was a slow and steady start for both sides. Liverpool kept pressing the opposition as usual but Wolves rose up to the challenge. There were numerous saves from Wolves to deny Liverpool the opener during the course of the game.
Diogo Jota missed some easy chances to give his side the lead. The best save was that of Conor Coady while the Wolves goalkeeper was out of position. This was a fabulous display of Wolves defence against such a strong Liverpool attack.
Chelsea’s loss to West Ham United earlier opened the gates for The Reds to climb up to pole position. Thus, this win could prove to be so vital for Jurgen Klopp’s men at the later stages of the tournament. The winner came in stoppage time as Divock Origi smashed in a blazing shot assisted by Mohamed Salah. It was an overall good team performance.
Wolves 0-1 Liverpool: Post match reactions
The Indepented also claimed about the heroic defending of Wolves in this tie.
Wolves boss Bruno Lage said:
I am so disappointed to see my players’ faces at the end. They worked so hard and played well. I do not think they deserved to lose this match. It was more painful to see their faces in the end than to concede that goal.
Jurgen Klopp’s take on the game:
This was a really big win for us and an important one. It was difficult indeed especially defending the Wolves counter attack with Adama Traore on. I also liked the way we played because we played between lines. Apart from that wonderful finish, I think we were lucky to get this late winner. Had it ended in a draw, Wolves would be lucky to gain a point.
