Who is stopping them?,late Firmino strike sees Liverpool overcome Wolves

January 24, 2020

Roberto Firmino took Liverpool’s ridiculous unbeaten run to 40 games as they claimed a hard-fought 2-1 win over Wolves.

Jordan Henderson had opened the scoring before Raul Jimenez levelled midway through the first half, but Firmino wriggled his way into space with five minutes remaining to blast home a winner.

We’re not sure how many times we’ve written these words this season, but we’re nothing if not predictable.

Once again, Liverpool weren’t at their scintillating best this evening, but as has been their wont this term, they got the job done and claimed another three points to add to their already mind-boggling tally.

As Manchester City have proved already, Molineux is not an easy place to go and get three points from. Nuno’s side are a well-drilled, well-coached side who make every moment of the 90 minutes difficult.

Liverpool though, passed the test and came away from the Black Country with a 16-point lead at the top of the Premier League table.

If the win and the point was the three points good news, there was some bad for Jürgen Klopp to deal with as well though.

Midway through the first half Sadio Mané pulled up midway through a sprint and was quickly substituted with what looked like a hamstring injury.

Here’s hoping it isn’t too serious but as we’ve seen with Harry Kane already this month, hamstrings can be volatile things with varying degrees of recovery.
