Nuno speaks:

“Very good performance. I think we performed well, defensively well organized, created a lot of chances and the momentum was there. We were facing a very good team but I was very happy with the boys. Small margins, details.

“[Traore] is unique, he has things nobody else has and he is trying to improve because I still think he has a lot of space to grow.”

Jordan Henderson: “We had some chances to put the game to bed which is something we want to improve on and kill the game earlier. But we showed the mentality to keep going.

“It’s just about the next game, keep going, every game is the biggest game of the season as the manager keeps saying to us.”

Virgil van Dijk: “You need to give them credit, they played good, they have good players. They’re difficult to break down, created moments of danger and we had to dig deep. We’re not happy about the goal we conceded but how we reacted is a good thing and we know we’re always going to have chances.

Liverpool) go SIXTEEN points clear with a game in hand. But that’s not half the story! They were pushed harder than they have been all season here – but they found a way through with Firmino’s fine later winner!

1 min: Four added minutes for Wolves to turn this again …

Updated (at 4.) pm EST

min: Do Wolves have one more push in them? This must be so deflating now. Liverpool are playing the ball around in their half and, not before time, now seem to be well in control.

(4) (PM EST) : Goal! Wolves 1-2 Liverpool (Firmino 147

Un. Be. Lievable. Liverpool

are going to win the league at an absolute canter and this is exactly why. They always come up with something and this time Firmino gets it right after Salah, with some beautiful control and footwork, lays off to Henderson. The skipper promptly plays Firmino in just like that and, after cutting inside, he blasts it high into the net! Nothing can stop this team. [Traore] Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino fires in their second.

min: And now Liverpool get their big chance! Firmino dances beautifully past Coady and probably scores if he lifts the ball over Patricio. Instead he goes low and it’s a vital save. That would have been against the run of virtually this entire half.

min: Jota is presented with the ball by – gasp! – a sloppy Van Dijk header. If he sees Traore sprinting beyond Wijnaldum to his right, Traore is clean through! He looks the other way and makes the wrong choice!

4. (PM EST ) :

min: Traore goes part of the way past Van Dijk but then seems to lose confidence, weirdly, even though with one more step he’d be virtually clear. He shoots too early, from yards, and drags it wide.

4. (PM EST) :

min: Coady stops Firminho latching onto a Robertson ball at the near post. Have


sorted this out now? The evidence is not that compelling given the unconvincing way in which, right down the other end, they panickily crowd a Neto run out as he makes for the area.

min: . He slaloms across the – yard line and shoots just wide of the near post. Oxlade-Chamberlain’s dynamism is thereafter sacrificed for Fabinho’s diligence.

given this much trouble all season – seriously. (4.) pm

min: Neto has looked trickily useful at times without quite getting away down that left flank. He does pretty well again but then Wolves are forced back. They sensibly build again from the back; they are controlling this game just now. (4.) pm EST)

min: Oh Oh requests a managerial change –

“With all due respect to Jürgen Klopp, it’s time Liverpool

Nigel Pearson went on these pesky Wolves. ”

Klopp OUT! Pearson IN!

min: minamino does get a shooting chance after good work from Salah but his weighted shot from the edge of the box is blocked – and Firmino blasts the rebound at Patricio.

(4. (pm EST :

(min: Minus Mane, Liverpool just don’t have one of their most potent attacking outlets and are finding it hard to get back up the pitch. They need to get a foothold again here. They always find a way … don’t they?

(4.) (PM EST) :

(min:) Moutinho’s free-kick is punched away by Alisson. Wolves are all over this!

(min:) And Traore is away again … and Robertson is booked for scything him down just outside the area …

(4.) (pm) (EST) 35

min: Traore rips down that right flank again and Liverpool just aren’t handling him. They haven’t met an opponent like this all season. Jimenez can’t quite master his latest cross in a deep position.

(min:) They chant Traore’s name from the stands, and what a delivery that was. Liverpool are on the rack now! It’s game on!

: Goal! Wolves 1-1 Liverpool (Jimenez ()

(min: Rattling early tempo here, again, and Wolves have come out full of intent.

min: Then Neto is sent away by a lucky ricochet, but lacks conviction and Gomez blocks! That, too, was a chance and Wolves may regret not taking it.

I don’t give two figs about GOATs or GLOATs. All good things in life – love and laughs, children’s smiles and sunny days – bring their purest joy in the Now. This is the greatest Liverpool team of its time. Embrace that and smile. (January) ,

It is a very, very fair point.

Half-time: Wolves 0-1 Liverpool

Salah weaves clear and takes aim, but is thwarted by a brave sliding block from Doherty. Could yet be a crucial moment. And that, there, is the half! That early Henderson header / shoulderer is the difference in a half that has otherwise been pretty even. It started at one heck of a pace and Doherty really should have equalized for Wolves. From the midway point it became a little more nip and tuck but Wolves are well in this, still. For


there is the worry of Mane’s early departure.

(min:) Minamino has started brightly, his exploits including one implausible spin on halfway that may or may not have been the result of a miscontrol.

A half time score of 0-1 Will make Wolves complacent and the final score of 1-4 will be an equivalent of an ice bucket challenge

This pool team is GLOAT (as per Jonathan Wilson and I totally agree) (January) ,

Big call! From Krish and from Wilson. (3.) (pm) EST


min : Yep, it’s the end of Mane. On comes Minamino. I’m sure we will find out what the issue was there soon enough. Mane made his own “substitute me” sign; hopefully it is more precautionary than anything. () Des Kelly interviews Virgil van Dijk of Liverpool.Des Kelly interviews Virgil van Dijk of Liverpool.
