That put him one behind Robbie Fowler, who was sixth on the Reds’ list of all-time league goalscorers, and a tough 10-point victory from the last 12 to carry them to two fourth-place wins. Tottenham with one game in hand.
Goals by two of Liverpool’s most experienced players on the pitch continued their momentum, which was in danger of stalling after Saturday’s disappointing goalless draw at Crystal Palace.
Manager Jurgen Klopp, who pitched the club’s oldest starting 11 (29 years 218 days) in nearly 70 years at Selhurst Park on Saturday, with six changes, including his choice of 18-year-old Stefan Bajcetic and 19-year-old Stefan Bajcetic, all midfield freshened things up. -old Harvey Elliott on either side of Fabinho.
Two youngsters plus Darwin Nunez drew attention in the first half as Elliott squandered his two best chances, and that didn’t happen until five minutes before the break.
He went wide-headed in the middle of Nunez first, bounced back when he should have scored after a shoulder problem, and then mishit a volley on the court when Uruguayan international Trent Alexander-Arnold took the middle and the bounce was enough for Jose Sa. It’s time to react and return the shot from the post.
Wolves’ only attempt came just three minutes later as Joao Moutinho, who was sidelined by Matheus Cunha’s injury, forced Alisson to save.
Ten minutes into the second half, the Nunez-Elliott link was back in the spotlight and the forward pinned his teammate, but his weak shot was comfortably put forward by Sa.
Nunez endeared Anfield as much as the unpredictability he brought to Anfield, the goal threat he posed and the fierce run from the left skipping a few tackles, as he was pampered by a cross too close to Sa.
In the 66th minute, Diogo Jota’s deep drive was having trouble in the penalty area, and he thought he was stuck when he landed on Nunez, who only slid the ball to his right foot and took a shot past Sa.
However, VAR advised referee Paul Tierney to see the side monitor and he eliminated the goal after Jota’s foul on Max Kilman.
But pressure was mounting against the relatively toothless Wolves, who beat their rivals 3-0 at Molineux earlier this month in what was arguably Liverpool’s worst performance of the season, and he finally figured it out.
From Alexander-Arnold’s free kick, Van Dijk headed into goal and Sa was barely able to fend off Jota, who returned the ball six yards where the Dutch captain was there to nod.
Six minutes later, Salah secured the game when he returned to the center of Tsimikas after attacking down the left-back.
In his program notes, Klopp emphasized that in recent weeks – apart from Real Madrid’s 5-2 defeat in the Champions League – they have been heading in the right direction and that he thinks the fourth consecutive win for the first time since April is something else to celebrate. .
