Liverpool’s march to the Premier League title continued as Roberto Firmino’s late winner at Wolverhampton Wanderers gave them the victory that extends their lead at the top to sixteen points with a game in hand.
Wolves can consider themselves unfortunate to be the victims of Liverpool’s twenty-second win in twenty-three league games after making life as uncomfortable as anyone has for Jurgen Klopp’s team this season before Firmino ensured Liverpool took another significant step towards their 1st title in thirty years.
Reds captain Jordan Henderson headed them ahead from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner after eight minutes however Wolves Drew level six minutes once the break when Raul Jimenez glanced in Adama Traore’s cross.
It was the first goal Liverpool – who lost Sadio Mane to injury within the first half – had conceded in the league for more than twelve hours and it required vital saves from goalkeeper Alisson to keep out Traore and Jimenez as Wolves ironed.
Liverpool, as ever, carried a large threat and Firmino drilled home the winner with six minutes left – though substitute Diogo Jota then wasted a wonderful chance to grant Wolves a point in stoppage time.
The Reds, who have won their last fourteen league games, are the third team to go forty games unbeaten in the Premier League.
