Liverpool moved four points clear at the top of the Premier League after putting in a professional performance and running out 2-0 winners away to Wolves tonight.
The Reds two best players on the night Mohamed Salah and Virgil Van Dijk struck in either half to extend Liverpool’s unbeaten run in the top flight this season to 18 games.
Speaking after the game Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp heaped praise on his side for their performance against a tough opponent.
“It was clear that the whole game would be difficult. Everybody wants to press. We want to be compact but wide as well which makes it difficult. We defended it pretty well. The heavy rain was difficult for both teams tonight. It was a big fight. We knew that we needed to be ready.’’ Klopp told BBC Sport.
“The first goal was brilliant, it was cool. And the second goal – yes, well done! I am completely happy with the result and it is big for us. We wanted to surprise our opponent. It was brilliant – both goals. It was perfect football, especially on a night like tonight when it was difficult to play proper football.
“I saw some really good things tonight. We will be training on Christmas morning so it is like every other day. It is an outstanding number [of points in the league] – it is absolutely cool.
“We have Manchester City waiting and that will be really tough for the boys. We need to have different game plans but the boys showed they are ready for that.”
