Liverpool top the league table with their fourth straight win
Liverpool had a bad season last season. However, in the current English Premier League (EPL), the All Reds have been excellent from the beginning. They have climbed to the top of the table with four consecutive wins.
Liverpool beat Wolverhampton 3-1 in the league match on Saturday (September 16). Cody Gakpo and Andrew Robertson scored for the team. The other is suicide. Hung Hee-chan scored a goal for Wolves.
However, Liverpool did not start well in the opponent’s field. They scored a goal in the seventh minute of the match. Neto crossed to his teammate after overcoming the Liverpool defenders. South Korean forward winger Hee-chan easily recovered the rest from a distance of six yards. Jurgen Klopp’s disciples were desperate to repay the goal. Although they continued to attack one after another, they failed to find the net in the first half.
They have to wait until 55 minutes of the match to return to the fight. Cody Gakpo equalized. Mohamed Salah attacked from the right and entered the D-box. Gakpoke passed. The Dutch forward brought the desired success to the team by hooking the ball into the net. Despite returning to parity, Liverpool was unable to return to the lead due to the barriers of the Wolves’ defense. The match was heading for a draw.
In the end, Robertson gave the winning lead in the 85th minute. Wolves’ goalkeeper kicks forward and Robertson takes possession from midfield. Attacked quickly with the ball and went to the box and passed to Salah on the right side. Then entered the box. Salah evaded the defenders and passed to the Scottish defender. The Wolves goalkeeper failed to save his shot.
Hugo Buena’s own goal made it 3-1 in added time. Of course, Harvey Elliott has the credit for this goal. His powerful shot from Salah’s cross deflected off Bueno’s leg before curling into the net. The Spanish defender failed to block the ball completely. He scored an own goal and Elliott was denied a place on the scorecard.
With this, Liverpool has reached the top of the table with 13 points after playing five matches in four consecutive wins this season. The All Reds have won against Bournemouth, Newcastle and Aston Villa after drawing their first league match against Chelsea. Manchester City is second with 12 points in 4 matches. Wolves are 15th in the table with 3 points from 5 matches.
