Nicholas said: “I genuinely thought Liverpool looked tired and leggy, especially at the end, against Manchester United. Some of those players were dead on their feet.
“That being said, I see Liverpool’s first defeat of the season coming on Thursday, but it will not change the destiny of the Premier League title.
“Wolves relish the games against the top-six sides. They looked assured at Anfield but got nothing from it. “
