Jurgen Klopp Deserves To Lead Liverpool To Title - Former Italy International

Jurgen Klopp Deserves To Lead Liverpool To Title - Former Italy International

Mo Salah netted his 14th goal of the season in the first half before teeing up Van Dijk's game-clinching second.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp also praised Van Dijk, noting he is in "a good moment" though he also made sure to credit the entire backline and two defensive midfielders for their role in the clean sheet. "He is in a good moment and very important for us and hopefully it can stay like this", said Klopp, when asked about Van Dijk's form and influence on the team.

Now under new management, they will look forward and rebuild, but Liverpool will be delighted to have caught their greatest rivals at just the right time, allowing the Reds to progress serenely back to the top of the Premier League in their enduring battle with the transcendent Manchester City.

'It was a bit of a tough day for me, I had a bit of a cold, I wasn't 100 percent, ' Van Dijk said.

Wolves have now faced all of the top flight's big sides.

"Every match-day, they are spot on". It is an outstanding number [of points] - it is absolutely cool.

"We don't really have options", Klopp told a press conference. We know how to grind games out. But other teams - Chelsea, Man City, Spurs and Arsenal - can all win and have 40 points.

Unsurprisingly, it was last season's top scorer and player of the season whop provided the opening goal at Molineux. "We are consistent, but the table doesn't mean anything".

"The start of the second half is not good".

"It was hard when Liverpool were in front, to keep balance because they have very good pace".

Fabinho gifted Traore the ball but the former Barcelona youngster could only shoot wide after four minutes.

The Liverpool full-back Andrew Robertson says that he and his team-mates have an understanding that they can speak to one another as frankly as they like on the pitch, and that even the senior players must expect to have their shortcomings pointed out.

He needed to save from Romain Saiss and Matt Doherty in a first half where Wolves put the visitors under pressure. Kevin De Bruyne was then quickly introduced as a replacement for left-back Fabian Delph as they desperately tried to rescue a point or better.

The Reds pushed for a second and Rui Patricio saved well from James Milner but there were chances for Wolves, too, with Alisson forced to save from Jonny Castro Otto.
