It may not have been up there with the great Liverpool performances in front of the Spion Kop, but Wednesday night’s 2-0 win over Wolves was an important one – not only for Premier League points but also for morale.
The Reds have been woeful at times this season. There’s a lack of urgency and desire that have been the hallmark of recent seasons.
A recent short uplift in form was shot down by a humiliating defeat by Real Madrid last week and the knock-on effect was the subsequent mediocre display at Crystal Palace.
The Wolves match started the same way and it looked like the lads were satisfied with playing out another goalless draw.
Thankfully all that changed when Darwin Nunez had a goal disallowed in the second half. Liverpool had put Wolves on the back foot and it wasn’t long until Virgil van Dijk scored the opener, soon followed by Mo Salah to double the score.
It wasn’t the nest of games by a long way, but it was a win, it was three valuable points and it was a sign that Liverpool aren’t done just yet.
