The Reds squandered a plethora of chances at Molineux but knocked out Divock Origi in added time to seal an invaluable victory that briefly took them to the top of the Premier League.
Chelsea’s shock defeat to West Ham United opened the door for Liverpool to usurp them as leaders, which they duly did. However, Manchester City’s 3-1 success at Watford later today means they are now one point behind Pep Guardiola’s side.
The Reds, who also lost to the Hammers last month, have rebounded in formidable style, winning their last five games in all competitions.

Following the dramatic nature of the Wolves victory, Salah tweeted a simple yet powerful message: “It’s in our hands.
The Egyptian provided the assist to the winner of Origi and has been sensational this season.
In total, Salah has scored 19 goals and eight assists so far this quarter, but Liverpool will be deprived of their talisman in January when they fly to the Africa Cup of Nations.
They will also lose Sadio Mane to the competition and how they fare without two-thirds of their infamous top three could well determine whether they win the title.
The next step for Jurgen Klopp’s side is a trip to AC Milan in the Champions League on Tuesday.
