Liverpool were in vintage form as they secured a comfortable 4-0 victory over Wolves on Sunday.

The Reds started the game in fourth place after Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur secured victories earlier in the day.

2,000 fans filled up the Kop to watch the champions, but it was Jurgen Klopp’s side who almost went behind early on.

A chip from Daniel Podence looked destined for the far corner, only for Caoimhin Kelleher to tip the ball away.

Four minutes later and it was Liverpool who broke the deadlock through Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian pounced on a mistake from former Liverpool defender Conor Coady before firing past Rui Patricio.

Wolves looked as though they could get back into the game early on in the second-half, but Gini Wijnaldum had a different opinion.

Jordan Henderson‘s lofted pass found the Dutchman, who waited and waited before curling beautifully into the top corner.

Salah turned provider after 67 minutes when his teasing cross was met by Joel Matip within the six-yard box.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, making his return from injury as a substitute, then set-up the fourth goal as his superb cross was bumbled in by Wolves defender Nelson Semedo.

Liverpool are return to equal top alongside Spurs, trailing only on goal difference.
