Wolves 0 Liverpool 2: Tim Spiers and Nathan Judah analysis

Wolves 0 Liverpool 2: Tim Spiers and Nathan Judah analysis”

Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho lost his job this week in the aftermath of the Red Devils' 3-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield, with many speculating after the game that Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp had got him the sack.

Salah again looked risky after the break and he set up Liverpool's second in the 68th minute, picking out Virgil van Dijk in Wolves' penalty area for the Netherlands worldwide to volley home from close range to double the lead.

Liverpool will spend Christmas on top of the Premier League after goals from Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk earned them a 2-0 win at Wolves on Friday, opening up a four-point lead over second-placed Manchester City.

The last four seasons have seen the leaders on Christmas win go on to take the Premier League title.

"It's a position that everyone wants to be in and we are in it at the moment".

"There were a lot of good messages about the United game at first and then, when the news came out about Mourinho, I had messages saying: 'That's your fault!' But this is football sometimes".

"It was a big fight under the circumstances, with the rain".

Neville says Liverpool's transition from a thrilling, attacking force into a more considered, controlled side this season has boosted their chances of lasting the distance in the race for Premier League honours. We knew set pieces would be decisive and the first goal was brilliant.

Van Dijk was happy to play his part in another important victory for Liverpool - their seventh in a row in the league - which ensured they will be top at Christmas, regardless of Manchester City's result against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

But following another clean sheet, Liverpool have conceded just seven goals in their 18 league games so far this season with Van Dijk producing another dominant display in the Midlands. They have shown throughout the season they are very good and disciplined and they have a clear idea. "Such a hard game to play, because all the things we want to do, everything you usually do, you take a bit of a risk". Teams are getting unsafe, but it's how we react.
