“Solskjaer 2.0” These Liverpool fans draw massive Man United comparison after striker’s late winner
Despite seeing Chelsea lose 3-2 against West Ham United earlier on Saturday afternoon, Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool almost failed to capitalise during their match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Reds, who came into Saturday’s game against Bruno Lage’s Wolves, second in the Premier League table, knew that an away win at Molineux would have sent them top of England’s top-flight.
Although Wolves’ put up a valiant showing for the majority of the game, with just 90-seconds left on the clock deep into added time, substitute striker Divock Origi came up with the goods.
