Liverpool collected three points in the Premier League for the first time in March. The Reds lost their first two games of the month against Chelsea and Fulham, but have now put an end to that brief losing streak. They completed the league double over Wolverhampton after beating them at Anfield 4-0 in December.

Liverpool vs. Wolverhampton: Game Summary

It came down to a first-half goal from Diogo Jota, who Liverpool signed from Wolves in the summer transfer window.

The goal was well worked starting from a Nat Philips header. It involved the whole of the Liverpool front three, all making the right decisions and executing a great team goal.

Although, the Wolves keeper should probably do better in keeping the ball out.

“I think against these type of teams that defend well we need to take advantage when they are unbalanced and they were in that moment,” Jota said discussing the goal. “It was good movement and a good goal to help the team.”

Another positive from the game was Ozan Kabak and Nat Philips’ performance. Both defenders put in a good performance that could give Klopp more confidence in the duo.

They recorded their second clean sheet in a row which has to help the confidence of the young centre-backs.

Liverpool now has a long break due to international football and not being in the FA Cup. Their next game will be April 4th against Arsenal.

This could be a much-needed break to help them recover from the poor performances in the league recently.

The Reds moved up to sixth in the table, only five points from fourth place. The race for champions league football may not be over.

Wolves dealt with more worrying concerns than the dropped points. After a collision with Conor Coady, Rui Patricio had to be stretchered off the pitch. Fortunately, the Portuguese international is okay.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo said: “He’s okay. He’s conscious, he remembers what happened, he’s aware.”
