The Reds go into the game with a one-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table and, with the Citizens not in action until the weekend, can go four points clear if they can win at Wolves.

The hosts have taken points off Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United already this season, but they looked short of ideas in the second half and Liverpool nearly added a third when Patricio thwarted Salah from a tight angle before Mane nodded off target from the resulting corner.

"But there are other teams". At the end of the season, you are probably going to need 105 to be champion.

The Liverpool manager speculated it might require a record total to become champions, calling this "a real special season", with Manchester City and Tottenham also in excellent form. It was a big fight.

Liverpool ensure that they will sit top of the Premier League table on Christmas Day courtesy of a 2-0 win over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux. It's a position that everyone wants to be in and we are in it at the moment. We will be training on Christmas morning, so it is like every other day.

Wolves to their credit responded well after going a goal behind, with Jonny and Matt Doherty both drawing saves from Alisson as the hosts caused the Reds a number of problems, especially through their wing-backs, although couldn't find an equaliser before the interval.

Large U.S. troop pullout planned in Afghanistan, officials say
This too could possibly be why U.S. allies are not too pleased with Trump's decision to pull out a major chunk of his troops. He resigned shortly after U.S. officials raised the possibility that Trump would order the drawdown.

We knew set pieces would be decisive and the first goal was brilliant.

The second goal killed off Wolves, whose inability to convert chances was highglighted again when substitute Morgan Gibbs-White shot into the side-netting near the end after a slip-up from Liverpool defender Andy Robertson. "We need to have different gameplans, but the boys showed they are ready for that". We won here and that is a big step for us.

How can one player be so good and so awful at the same time? We did that in the first half an hour and in the second half - the last 15 minutes of the first half we had a little break and they immediately fired the ball from right to left or left to right, and then you have to run like insane. "I had a bit of a cold, so I wasn't 100 percent".

Wolves nearly produced an immediate response to drag themselves back into the game when a mini-goalmouth scramble ended with the ball falling to Saiss, but his snapshot was straight at Alisson.

"Teams are getting risky but it's how we react".
