Nuno Espirito Santo says Wolves showed lack of focus in Liverpool loss

Nuno Espirito Santo says Wolves showed lack of focus in Liverpool loss

Salah's opening goal was brilliantly converted with the outside of his left boot and he also set up the second for Van Dijk, who was outstanding at the back for Liverpool.

Remarkably, their unbeaten league run now stands at 18 games - nearly half the season - and they will be the Christmas leaders over Manchester City no matter whether the champions beat Crystal Palace today.

"Forty-eight points before Christmas, it's just insane, but there are other teams there as well", said the Liverpool manager, whose side's lead will be cut back to one if Manchester City win at home against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"But there are other teams". Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham, Arsenal, will probably win, so then they have 40-something points, nobody is dropping points down to fifth or sixth.

"If you want to do the headline, "Klopp says you need 105 points to be champions", do it".

Kenny Dalglish, however, said on Sky Sports before the Wolves game that Van Dijk is now "just behind Carra". It was a big fight. You saw the shots had about 50 per cent power.

Mohamed Salah's tenth league goal of the season was the difference in the first half, when Liverpool were more often on the back foot and it laid the ground for their gradual asserting of control.

"The little passes between [James] Milner and Fabinho were cool [in the build up to Salah's goal] and they didn't have too many chances".

'For the moment it's really nice and now we have to make sure we have fresh legs as quick as possible and get ready for Newcastle'.

Wolves had always gone looking for the goal but it simply eluded them in the game's key moments. It was a good game, a deserved win'.

Manchester City bid to maintain their Premier League title challenge against Crystal Palace at the Etihad Stadium, but the spotlight will be shared with rivals Manchester United. They will all win as well. So...

Jurgen Klopp - buoyed by the success of Virgil van Dijk's arrival in January - spent more than £150m in the summer transfer window to bring in four new players.

"But these nights are very important for us and we won here".

Otherwise Liverpool found themselves under a lot of pressure from the Wolves approach and there were times when they were opened up and vulnerable.

"The best thing to do to stay in charge of the game is to keep the ball".

"I had a bit of a cold so I wasn't 100 per cent".
