Unstoppable Reds: Liverpool’s He comes back with a win

Liverpool overcame a deficit to secure victory against Wolves, propelling themselves to the summit of the Premier League.

The Reds commenced the weekend fixture cognizant of their prior inability to secure wins in six consecutive Saturday 12.30pm kick-off matches last season. It appeared this streak might persist until captain-for-the-day Andy Robertson found the net with only four minutes left on the clock. In added time, Hugo Bueno inadvertently deflected Harvey Elliott’s shot past Jose Sa, sealing the victory.

During the first half at Molineux, the hosts dominated the proceedings against an uncharacteristically lackluster Liverpool. Hwang Hee-chan calmly slotted in a goal in the 7th minute following an exceptional run by Pedro Neto, with Wolves squandering several additional scoring opportunities.

However, Liverpool underwent a dramatic transformation in the second half. In the 55th minute, Mohamed Salah orchestrated a goal for fellow striker Cody Gakpo, who easily tapped it in to level the score.

Wearing the captain’s armband on his 200th Premier League appearance, Andy Robertson added Liverpool’s second goal in the 85th minute, courtesy of another precise pass from Salah, as the visitors intensified their offensive efforts.

In the waning moments of the match, Liverpool extended their lead to three goals when Wolves’ Hugo Bueno inadvertently deflected the ball into his own net following a shot by Harvey Elliott, sending the visiting fans into ecstatic celebrations.

As a result, Liverpool temporarily ascended to the top of the league table with 13 points from five games, while Wolves currently occupy the 15th position with three points.
