    FULL-TIME: WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 1-2 LIVERPOOL. This has been one of the sternest examinations that Liverpool have been put through this season. In the end they prevail and they are now unbeaten in their last 40 Premier League games!

  • 93'

    Traore beats Robertson and after a messy scramble in the Liverpool penalty area the final shot from Jota is HIGH and WIDE! That should have been 2-2!

  • 92'

    What does Wolves have in them? Can they pull one back and save the day?

  • 90'

    We will have four minutes of time added on for stoppages.

  • 87'

    SUBSTITUTION: Liverpool make another change and Origi is on for Salah. Wolves also make a change and Gibbs-White is on for Moutinho.

  • 84'

    GOAL, LIVERPOOL, FIRMINO (1-2). Liverpool build patiently down the right. Henderson finds Salah, who then jigs around a defender before offloading to Firmino. What a finish and this time he does not make a mistake.

  • 83'

    SAVE! Firmino has Patricio to beat, but the keeper does well to punch it away for a corner.

  • 82'

    A rare Van Dijk mistake, as he gives the ball away in his half. This time Gomez is there to help him out.

  • 79'

    Wolves have certainly dominated the second half thus far and they are on the front foot at the moment.

  • 77'

    SUBSTITUTION: Wolves now bring on Jota to replace Neto.

  • 76'

    Minamino secures a Liverpool corner. The corner is cleared and Traore leads a counter-attack, but again Van Dijk is there!

  • 74'

    Neto sends Traore away and he decides to go it alone, but his shot is poor and well WIDE!

  • 72'

    Liverpool are all over the place now. They need to calm down and regroup. They are also struggling with possession.

  • 70'

    SUBSTITUTION: Liverpool now bring on Fabinho to replace Oxlade-Chamberlain.

  • 66'

    This is certainly a different ball game now.

  • 65'

    It has been 725 minutes since Liverpool last conceded a Premier League goal and that was Richarlison who scored for Everton.

  • 63'

    Liverpool are now holding onto the ball longer when in possession.

  • 61'

    The set-piece is taken and the Minamino strike is cleared near the line. That may have been offside and VAR could have come into play if that hit the net.

  • 59'

    Traore concedes a free-kick after the ball hits his arm.

  • 56'

    YELLOW! It's all Wolves at the moment. Liverpool have gone to sleep. Traore is fouled by Robertson, who is booked for his troubles.

  • 54'

    News in from the Liverpool dressing room is that Sadio Mane has had a hamstring niggle and was taken off as a precaution.

  • 51'

    GOAL, WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS, JIMENEZ! (1-1). There it is! A lovely build-up down the right and a cross from Traore to Jimenez levels the score! That was always coming!

  • 50'

    The corner is cleared and a Wolves counter-attack is only just blocked by Gomez inside the Liverpool penalty area. What a start to the half!

  • 48'

    SAVE! Another Liverpool attack and another Salah shot at goal. This time Patricio pushes it out for a corner.

  • 46'

    Kick-off! We are back underway in the second half.

  • 45'

    HALF-TIME: WOLVERHAMPTON WANDERERS 0-1 LIVERPOOL. So far so good for The Reds and they lead at the break with that Henderson strike. Wolves are by no means out of this clash and you would be silly to write them off. Will there be drama ahead?

  • 44'

    We will have two minutes of time added on for stoppages.

  • 43'

    Can Wolves pull one back before the break?

  • 41'

    BLOCK! Jimenez makes a good run and then Van Dijk is there to shut him out and concedes a corner.

  • 40'

    The match has gone through a little bit of a lull since Mane's departure.

  • 38'

    Wolves attack and Alexander-Arnold is beaten by the bounce of the ball. Jimenez then fires a shot at goal, but Alisson has it covered.

  • 36'

    Wolves receive a relieving free-kick near their own penalty area after a foul by Jordan Henderson.

  • 33'

    SUBSTITUTION: Mane is off and he has been replaced by Takumi Minamino, who makes his Premier League debut for The Reds.

  • 32'

    Mane is the next one down and he receives some attention. This time Wolves return the favour by kicking the ball out of play.

  • 30'

    Great work by Van Dijk in defence to muscle and martial Jonny out of position near the Liverpool penalty area to secure a goal kick.

  • 28'

    The possession stats are currently 60-40 in Liverpool's favour.

  • 26'

    After a short break we continue with Wolves returning the ball to The Reds.

  • 25'

    This time Neves is down after an altercation with Mane. Liverpool attack, but Firmino then sportingly kicks the ball into touch.

  • 23'

    Wijnaldum is in a bit of pain after taking the full blow of Doherty's studs. He continues after receiving attention..

  • 20'

    Neves finds Traoré with a superb cross and they come close, but this time Van Dijk clears the danger. Liverpool launch a counter-attack and the Salah shot at goal is BLOCKED!

  • 17'

    We are watching two very good sides here this evening and the game has lived up to the hype thus far.

  • 15'

    Wolves earn another set-piece and Alisson misjudges it in the swirling wind at first, before clearing.

  • 12'

    WIDE! Wolves now secure their own corner and Moutinho takes it short. They outplay Liverpool after a cross into the area by Neves and Doherty has only Alisson to beat, but sends it WIDE! He should have SCORED! What a chance!

  • 8'

    GOAL, LIVERPOOL, HENDERSON! (0-1) Alexander-Arnold hits the WALL and Liverpool have a corner. He then delivers the corner to the head of Henderson, who powers Liverpool into the lead. That was not a clear perfect header but they all count.

  • 7'

    Salah is fouled on the edge of the Wolves penalty area and The Reds have a free-kick in a promising position.

  • 6'

    The set-piece is sent into the penalty area by Neto and Liverpool eventually clear after some initial panic.

  • 4'

    It's all Liverpool in the early stages, as the Reds dominate possession. Despite that Wolves secure a free-kick after a foul by Alexander-Arnold.
