Man City will be tough - Klopp grounded despite Liverpool's four-point cushion

Liverpool moved four points clear at the top of the Premier League after Mohamed Salah inspired them to a deserved 2-0 win at Wolves. We lost the ball too easily a couple of times in the first half and they did well.

"We have Manchester City waiting, and that will be really tough for the boys".

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool is now flying high in the Premier League as they sit at the summit of the English top division league with 45 points after 17 games.

Undefeated after eighteen games, Liverpool are nearly half-way towards matching Arsenal's Invincibles who went an entire season without a loss in the Premier League in 2004.

It proved to be the final action of the match as Liverpool ensured top spot at Christmas - a position from which nine of the last 10 occupants have gone on to win the title from.

"It's a position that everyone wants to be in and we are in it at the moment".

Liverpool fans, do you think your team can win the league this season?

Egypt worldwide Mohamed Salah scored the first goal for Liverpool in the 18th minute and it was Fabinho who provided the superb assist for the former Chelsea star. Especially with the rain tonight, heavy rain, it made it a little bit more complicated. "We didn't maintain the consistency through the game", the Wolves boss told BBC Sport. We were really quick in mind around two set pieces which was brilliant.

Van Dijk overcame illness to deliver an outstanding performance against Wolves that earned the acclaim of his manager and former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher.

The Liverpool forward has not had a bad season at Anfield by any means, but he was so exceptionally good during his first campaign at the club, in 2017-18, that he was always going to be measured to an impossible standard this time around.

Wolves next travel to Fulham on Boxing Day, live on Sky Sports.

"But these nights are very important for us and we won here". We won here and that is a big step for us.

Van Dijk once again put in a top class performance to help the team to yet another clean sheet - their eleventh in 18 Premier League games.
