Wolves 0-2 Liverpool: Mohamed Salah helps Reds go four points clear

Mohamed Salah was the top Premier League goalscorer with 32 goals in 2017-18, and his strike against Wolves took him top of this season’s standings with 11

Mohamed Salah inspired Liverpool to a victory at Wolves that took them four points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

The Reds went ahead when Fabinho played a one-two with Sadio Mane and crossed for Salah, who flicked the ball into the net with the outside of his foot.

The Egyptian set up Liverpool’s second with a wonderful lofted pass over the home defence, allowing Virgil van Dijk to side-foot a six-yard volley past Rui Patricio.

City, the defending champions, play their game in hand on Saturday when they host Crystal Palace, but this victory ensures Jurgen Klopp’s side will be top on Christmas Day.

Eight of the past nine teams to have been top on December 25 have gone on to win the title.
