Liverpool 4 – 0 Wolves

Liverpool FC

Liverpool thump Wolves 4 – 0. Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead in the first half after Wolves defender Conor Coady misjudged a long ball from Jordan Henderson. Defending champions Liverpool welcomed the return of fans to Anfield for the first time since March with an emphatic victory over Wolves.

Georginio Wijnaldum added a second after the break, bending a superb shot into the top-right corner from long range, before Joel Matip’s thumping header and Nelson Semedo’s scrambled own goal made it 4-0.

Referee Craig Pawson awarded a penalty to Wolves in the first half when he adjudged Sadio Mane to have fouled Liverpool-born Coady but he overturned it after reviewing the incident on the video assistant referee monitor, where it was clear there had been no contact.

The win means Liverpool remain level on points with league leaders Tottenham, who beat Arsenal 2-0 in the north London derby earlier on Sunday.

Wolves are in 10th although only two points behind fifth-placed Manchester United, who have a game in hand.
