Liverpool suffered another disappointing defeat to stay winless for the fourth consecutive week.
Wolves defeated Liverpool 3-0 in their Premier League game on Saturday. A brilliant performance from the hosts helped them move out of the relegation zone.
A crucial victory for Wolves!
The hosts stunned Liverpool with an early goal as they found a fantastic start to the game.
A low cross from Matheus Nunes bounced off Joel Matip and found its way into the back of the net. Wovles then used their rhythm to keep the Reds under pressure.
Only seven minutes later, Craig Dawson made it 2-0 for the hosts. Following a blocked shot from Max Kilman, the English defender doubled his side’s lead with a powerful shot.
Liverpool pushed hard to get back into the game for the rest of the first period. Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez came close to scoring, but the hosts stopped them with solid defending.
The Reds went on to start the second period as the better side, trying to put pressure on Wolves’ backline from the flanks. But a goal from Ruben Neves in the 71st minute ended their hopes of escaping the embarrassing defeat.
The hosts then remained in control for the rest of the game, barely allowing Liverpool to conduct a serious attack. The crucial victory helps Wolves get out of the relegation zone, climbing all the way up to the 15th spot.
Liverpool, on the other hand, stay tenth on the table, preparing to meet Everton in the Merseyside derby on Monday.
