• Liverpool 2-0 Wolves
  • UCL Spots Still Within Reach For Klopp’s Men

Liverpool’s top 4 hopes renewed as they were able to secure all 3 points at Anfield against Julien Lopetegui’s Wolves. Mohamed Salah secured the win just 4 minutes after Virgil Van Dijk opened the scoring in the last quarter of the game.

Liverpool looked very sharp in attack in the first half, with Diogo Jota starting against his former club. Wolves threatened Liverpool’s defence with a couple of chances earlier on, but the return of Konate brought some much-needed calmness to The Red’s backline.

Diogo Jota’s electric run into the box created the chance that allowed Darwin Núñez to score what should have been the opening goal of the game, but VAR chopped it off for a foul in the build-up.

Seven minutes later, Virgil van Dijk almost scored with his shoulder, but Jose Sa denied him, however the Portuguese punched the ball into the path of Jota who immediately crossed the ball towards Van Dijk for an easy header into the back of the net. Mohamed Salah tapped in the second 4 minutes later after an industrious run into the box by Tsimikas.

Liverpool are now just 6 points off Tottenham Hotspur, who have played a game more. An important win over a stubborn opponent like Wolves puts them back in the race for UEFA Champions League football next season. The Reds are looking to get top talents in the summer, especially in midfield, doing that without the appeal of playing UEFA Champions League would have been more difficult.
