Wolves will think about themselves unfortunate to be the victims of Liverpool’s twenty second win in twenty three league games once making life as uncomfortable as anyone has for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season before Firmino ensured Liverpool took another important step towards their initial title in thirty years.
Reds captain Jordan Henderson headed them in front from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner once eight minutes however Wolves Drew level six minutes after the break once Raul Jimenez glanced in Adama Traore’s cross.
It was the first goal Liverpool – who lost Sadio Mane to injury within the half – had conceded within the league for over twelve hours and it required necessary saves from goalkeeper Alisson to keep out Traore and Jimenez as Wolves pressed.
Liverpool, as ever, carried an enormous threat and Firmino drilled home the winner with six minutes left – though substitute Diogo Jota then wasted a wonderful likelihood to provide Wolves a point in stoppage time.
The Reds, who have won their past fourteen league games, are the third team to go forty games unbeaten within the Premier League.
