Liverpool found a spirited comeback against Wolves and extended their winning streak!


After a bad first half for her at home Wolvesthe Liverpool recovered in the second 45 minutes, prevailing 3-1 with a twist and celebrating its fourth consecutive victory at the start of this year’s Premier League and climbing (even temporarily) to the top of the standings!

On the other hand, Wolves experienced their fourth defeat in the first five games, remaining at the bottom and only keeping their very good performance in the first half of today’s game.

THE Liverpool lined up with youngster Kwanza at the heart of their defence, with the 20-year-old making his league debut after Gomez moved to right-back in the absence of the injured Alexander-Arnold. Debut for Grafenberg, who came on as a substitute in the 93rd minute.

Wolves were the ones that entered the “Molino” pitch better and were fortunate to take the lead in the 7th minute, in the first phase they created in front of the visitors’ goal. THE Pedro Neto made a fantastic individual effort from the left and curled in a cross, with both Robertson and Alisson failing to react, giving the right to Huang to open the score!

Bad in the first half Liverpoolwas unable to create problems for the opposing defense, while at the same time having a very high defense, giving Wolves the ability to constantly threaten with their quick counter-attacks.

The picture of the match was different in the second 45 minutes, with Klopp’s team clearly improving and finding the equalizing goal in the 55th minute, when Salah “served” ready goal to Hakpo and became the African with the most assists in Premier League history (he reached 62 and surpassed Mahrez).

The total upheaval came in the 85th minute, when the promoted Robertson he took advantage of another assist from Salah for 1-2, while in the first minute of stoppage time the Egyptian striker made… a hat-trick in assists, with Eliot to catch a long shot and the ball against Bueno, before ending up in the net for the final 1-3!
