- GoalGeorginio WijnaldumLiverpool
GOAL! The home side counter attack at speed and Wijnaldum doubles their advantage with a sweet curling shot into the top corner.
CLOSE! Coady almost ghosts in to finish off a wonderful ball in from the right. Only brilliant defending steals it off his toe.
Wolves work another short corner from the left. It's finally delivered into the middle, but Kelleher reads it and punches to safety.
Liverpool are on top at the start of this second period. Wolves have yet to really show much going forward.
Liverpool are attacking the Kop end in this half. How those fans would love to see an up-close goal in the flesh once again.
Mane drags his side-foot attempt wide after Robertson's first-time touch back from Salah's raking cross-field ball. Super football.

HT: Liverpool 1-0 Wolves.
No penalty! The referee changes his mind. Replays suggest Mane didn't catch Coady.
The referee is now going to look at the pitch-side monitor.
PENALTY TO WOLVES. Liverpool fail to clear a corner and Mane appears to catch Coady.VAR is checking....
Boly takes a Mane pile-driver firmly in the face and barely winces. As hard as nails that.
Klopp takes the opportunity to have a chat with Salah. It seems he wanted Fabinho to take the free kick rather than the Egyptian. Jones is back up and play resumes.
Another Liverpool injury concern as the physio comes on to take a look at Jones.
Salah bends it over the wall but Patricio takes up a good starting position and is able to get across and easily claim.
Super strength and footwork from Mane sees him win a free kick to Liverpool. It's in a central position 25 yards out.
Henderson whips a sumptuous ball into the middle towards Mane, but the N.10 can't flick a header back across goal to cap off a well-timed run.
VIDEO: Salah strikes!
DID YOU KNOW? Liverpool are the only team to score in every Premier League game this season.
That was Salah's 11 goal of the season and his ninth in the PL.
- GoalMohamed SalahLiverpool
GOAL! Salah pounces upon an error from Coady to nip in and fire a low shot beyond Patricio.
Robertson hits a sensational long ball in behind for Mane. The forward could go for goal but opts to try a cut back, but there's no-one there to finish it off.
VIDEO: Kelleher to the rescue.
Wolves power forward down the right. Traore roasts Fabinho but sees his cross-shot fly well wide.
Kelleher shows great agility to claw Podence's cheeky chip from the edge of the box away from the far corner.
STAT: A Liverpool win would see the Reds equal their best run of eight successive league victories over Wolves, set from 1974-79. Klopp’s men have won the last seven Premier League meetings by an aggregate scoreline of 15-2.
Mane nods over the bar from Robertson's driven cross. Liverpool won the ball high there and a slick combo between Mane and the full back carved the visiting defence open.
Robertson arcs a deep left-wing free kick towards the far post, but Patricio edges off his line to gather with real authority.
Liverpool surge forward on the counter attack. Jones jinks looking for space to shoot from the right side of the area. He fails to pull the trigger and eventually goes backwards. Liverpool lose momentum and Wolves get back to allay the pressure.
Neves takes aim but can't keep his shot down. The midfielder was looking to give Kelleher an early test there, but failed to find the right dip on his effort.
- Yellow cardNeco WilliamsLiverpool
Williams picks up an early caution after pulling back Neto. Free kick to Wolves on the far left, just outside the box.
League head to head at Anfield: Liverpool 33 wins, 7 draws, Wolves 9 wins.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Wolves get us up and running.
FINDING FORM: Pedro Neto has netted three goals in 10 Premier League outings this season. That's as many as he managed in 29 games in the competition last term.
FEATURE: SPOTY nominee Jordan Henderson provided a timely reminder of his leadership qualities after Liverpool edged Ajax 1-0 to qualify for the Champions League last 16.
Meanwhile, Klopp has spoken of his frustration at Brexit's impact on English football.
Gini Wijnaldum: “I have to say that Wolves is always a really tough test for us. I cannot remember that we had a really easy game against them. All the games we played against them were quite tough. Most of them we won but if you look at the score and how we won it, it was not with a lot of goal difference. We know how difficult it can be to play against them and especially now when they are in a good run. They only lost one of their last seven matches, so I think we will face a Wolves that's really confident.”
Conor Coady on the prospect of facing Diogo Jota (at some point tonight): “We’re looking forwards to coming up against him and hopefully he won’t have too much success on Sunday, but what he’s done since the start of the season has been fantastic, and that’s all credit to him because he’s a brilliant person.”
Nuno Espirito Santo on the absence of Raul Jimenez who fractured his skull in the win at Arsenal: “It's a chance for all the squad, knowing we don't have someone who is really important for us. I don't recall a game when Raul was not in the team. It's a chance for us all to raise our standards and create solutions for the team.”
A bit more on that team sheet. Wolves make one change from the 2-1 success at Arsenal. Ruben Neves replaces the injured Raul Jimenez. Caoimhin Kelleher makes his PL bow in goal for the hosts.
Tottenham have just beaten Arsenal in the North London derby which means they sit top of the pile once again. Liverpool come into this game in fourth and can go second with a win, behind Spurs on goal difference. Wolves are 10th, but could rise to fifth with a victory.
Klopp: After that long break, I think our fans will be in the best possible shape. As we’ve always said, when you go to Anfield it is not important how many [of] you there are, it’s all about how big your influence will be. I hope 2,000 people can be really influential, that they really help. First and foremost, they have to enjoy the game.”
