Earlier this evening Wolverhampton Wanderers welcomed Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side to the Molineux for Friday night’s Premier League action in front of the television cameras.
Coming into the tie, Wolves were on the back of three straight victories and we got ourselves back on track under head coach Nuno Espirito Santo after the poor run of results and we were sat in a healthy seventh place in the top flight table.
Liverpool are obviously top of the pack with five wins in their last five matches, but there was every reason for confidence going into the tie.

Despite our best efforts, they dominated possession, but only slightly edged us on chances, they did make two of their shots count to take a 2-0 victory. It wasn’t an embarrassment though, Liverpool have quality players used to this level and their form is good and that was the margin.
A learning curve and nothing more and any Wolves fan losing their marbles over defeat needs to check themselves.
Speaking to the BBC immediately post-game, our gaffer explained.
“We started the game well, chances for both teams. We didn’t maintain the consistency through the game and the start of the second half was not good. Better decisions or composure and we could have harmed a very good team. The boys worked very hard and it’s difficult to play against Liverpool, especially when they’re in front. We deserved one goal at least. We have to now rest. I’m happy because of the way we work and pass the moments football gives. We are consistent – the table doesn’t mean anything.”
