Liverpool Go Top of the Premier League with a Comeback Victory Against Wolves: Gakpo, Robertson, and Elliott Shine at Molineux

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool mounted a second-half comeback after going a goal down early, to defeat Wolves 3-1 at Molineux on Saturday afternoon. 

Wolves took an early lead with Pedro Neto weaving his way past Joe Gomes and Joel Matip on the left hand side of the Liverpool penalty area before putting a cross back across goal to find Hwang Hee-Chan, who tapped in after just seven minutes. 

The home side sat off as Liverpool grew in confidence, with Diogo Jota feeding the ball through to Mohamed Salah inside the penalty area, with the Egyptian forward sliding the ball across the box to Cody Gakpo, who tapped in to level the scores after 55 minutes.

Andy Robertson gave the Reds the lead late on in the match, laying the ball off to Salah who took his second assist of the match, passing the ball back to the Scottish defender tapping in with his left foot to put the reds 2-1 up. 

The Egyptian forward, although not on the score sheet today, provided the creativity Liverpool needed teeing up Harvey Elliott who wrapped up the win, striking a deflected shot into the bottom right corner of the net. 

As of writing the result puts Liverpool top of the table ahead of Manchester City on 13 points, with Wolves 15th in the standings having now lost four of their opening five Premier League fixtures.
