Liverpool silence Wolves and extend lead at summit

Liverpool silence Wolves and extend lead at summit

The Holland worldwide was vast in Liverpool's 2-0 win at Wolves on Friday night that moved them four points clear of Manchester City in the table.

Jürgen Klopp's team top the table on 48 points, 4 clear of Manchester City, who will face Crystal Palace on Saturday.

He said: "If you want to do the headline "Klopp says we need 105 points to win the title" then do it".

"We all have the attitude that if someone says something to you, you have to take it on the chin".

City won the title last season with a record 100 points, but with the way this season has played out, Klopp believes even more might be needed this time. They will all win as well, I think.

Liverpool have conceded just seven goals in the league this season with, Alisson Becker keeping 11 clean sheets.

Just for good measure, his assist for Virgil van Dijk's second-half goal, which confirmed all three points, was his fifth in the league. There were chances for both teams in the first half, we could have done better in the final third and with final decisions.

"It was ideal football", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp said of the performance, "especially on a night like tonight when it was hard to play proper football". "Such a hard game to play, because all the things we want to do, everything you usually do, you take a bit of a risk".

"The first half was better, the second half was unusual as it felt like they nullified us without us even knowing. We need to have different gameplans, but the boys showed they are ready for that". We do discuss things. "It's a big game for us, Fulham are a good side, they move the ball well so we have to be prepared as normal". Two wins there will really allow them to pull away from City before the Mancs play Liverpool in the new year.

The centre-back scored his first goal for Liverpool in their victory over Wolves.

Salah's opening goal was brilliantly converted with the outside of his left boot and he also set up the second for Van Dijk, who was outstanding at the back for Liverpool.

It's distinctly possible if Liverpool's two signature players keep performing.
