Liverpool Tame Wolves To Get Back To Winning Ways In The League

Liverpool's top-four prospects were given a shot in the arm after a 1-0 win away to Wolves. Returning to his former club, Diogo Jota scored the game's solitary goal and gave the Reds what was -- on the overall balance -- a deserved win. The visitors started the game in a shaky fashion and this was typified by Alisson. Coming to claim a routine cross from Adama Traore, the Brazilian made unconvincing contact and the ball spilled into the path …
