Wolves criticised as Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp makes 'unfair' comment

A 94th minute goal from impact sub Divock Origi saw Liverpool defeat a gutsy Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

Bruno Lage’s team matched Premier League title contenders Liverpool for 90 minutes before the Belgian – who was pursued by Wolves two years ago – fired home the winner.

As expected, Wolves were forced to spend most of the first half inside their own final third as Liverpool pressed and probed.

The Reds – who are the Premier League’s most prolific team by a country mile – struggled to penetrate Wolves for the most part.

Liverpool were moving through the gears and Mohamed Salah spurned a golden chance shortly before the half-time whistle.

Former Wolves man Diogo Jota played a pivotal role in setting up the chance by dropping deep and threading a ball through to Andy Robertson on the left. Robertson fired a ball across goal and Salah was primed to tap in, but the league’s top scorer somehow failed to connect.

First half chances were in short supply for the hosts, who failed to test Allison, but they carried a threat on the counter-attack.

Conor Coady made a vital last ditch block as Diogo Jota bore down on goal, somehow keeping Wolves’ clean sheet intact.

Max Kilman produced his own piece of brilliant defending to stretch and divert substitute Origi’s goal-bound effort behind for a corner with five minutes to go.

From the resulting corner, the ball fell kindly to Sadio Mane but Sa was on hand to produce yet another sublime stop.

Liverpool still had one more trick up their sleeve though. Salah dashed down the right and pulled the ball back for Origi, who held off his marker and fired a shot past Sa.

The Wolves players dropped to their knees as Origi wheeled away in the 94th minute at Molineux. A defeat that Lage’s men didn’t deserve.

What Bruno Lage Said

“It’s important for us to listen to Klopp’s words about our team because we are there, playing as a unit,” the Wolves head coach said in his post-match press conference.

“We must move on because today we played one of the best teams in the world and next week we will play one of the best teams in the world.”

He continued: “The most important thing to say in this moment is when we win, we win together, when we lose, we lose together. We did a solid performance and we cannot lose that ball in extra-time.

“Our job and our strategy was to stop them from having transitions. When you lose the ball, don’t give them a transition.

“I don’t want to point to no one, but it’s frustrating because I come to the dressing room and see my players’ faces. We didn’t deserve to lose this game. Me and the fans should be proud of our players.”

What Jurgen Klopp Said

“If you don’t take your chances, it happens pretty often were you go home with one point, or if they use one of their rare counter-attacks, you go home with nothing, which would have been incredibly unfair from our point of view, obviously,” the Liverpool boss said after the final whistle.

“This is now the right result, I think. We had the majority of the ball, we were very dominant, we didn’t let them play how they usually play.

“It was a football-playing side to not really be seen today because we were really at them.

“So, good game with a great result. That’s it.”

What The Fans Said

@Fabiofury46: Really unlucky defended really well but ultimately if you sit that deep against Liverpool your going to be punished our defence really is outstanding, but we seriously need to improve going forwards since his goal patch Hwang has been poor Podence for him next match I think

@NaimJorge: If raul doesn’t provide all nobody does!! Trincao barely touch the ball

@haydenbd_: Was a solid defensive performance, wasn’t pretty but that’s expected. Gutted. These last 3 results have been so frustrating

@Arranweeks_: Another game adama plays another game we haven’t scored

@crane_anthony: Forever bad offense
