EPL: Liverpool move to second after win at Wolves 

Liverpool overcame a sluggish first-half display against Wolves to win 3-1 at the Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

The host dominated the first half and deservedly opened the scoring when Hwang Hee-chan fired home at the far post after some excellent wing play by Pedro Neto.

The Reds were much improved after the break and drew level when Cody Gakpo converted Mohamed Salah’s fizzing cross-shot.

Andy Robertson then marked his 200th Premier League appearance by putting the Reds ahead for the first time in 85 minutes, before substitute Harvey Elliott’s shot deflected off Hugo Bueno for an own goal to seal the victory in stoppage time.

The win moves Klopp’s side up to second in the Premier League, two points behind leaders Manchester City.
