Liverpool defeats Wolves thanks to two late goals.

Andy Robertson gave the Reds the lead for the first time on 85 minutes, then replacement Harvey Elliott’s shot deflected off Hugo Bueno for an own goal in stoppage time to seal the victory.

Liverpool drew level early in the second half when Cody Gakpo converted Mohamed Salah’s fizzing cross-shot.

The home team dominated the first half and rightly took the lead when Hwang Hee-Chan scored at the far post following some wonderful wing play by Pedro Neto.

The victory puts Jurgen Klopp’s team one point clear at the top of the table ahead of Saturday’s 3 p.m. kick-offs.

The resilient Reds are back.
Liverpool showed their tenacity once more, recovering from a sluggish first half to win after losing the opening goal for the third time in five Premier League games this season.

They provided little of an attacking threat in the first 45 minutes, as their midfield was frequently overrun, and they went into the halftime break behind.

Klopp replaced the subdued Alexis Mac Allister with Luis Diaz at halftime, before putting on Elliott and Darwin Nunez 11 minutes later.

As Liverpool transformed, the substitutes had an impact, with Diaz hitting just wide from Robertson’s volleyed cross 90 seconds after coming on.

After some wonderful movement on the edge of the box, the ball ultimately reached Salah, whose drilled cross-shot was knocked home by Gakpo.

Nunez then came within inches of putting Liverpool ahead, but his shot was brilliantly stopped by goalkeeper Jose Sa and defender Max Kilman.

Wolves appeared to be losing their footing, and the visitors appeared to be the most likely to score.

With five minutes remaining, Robertson, captain in place of the suspended Virgil van Dijk, sprinted on to Salah’s searching pass and side-footed home from six yards.
