That's all from us tonight, thank you for joining us, and see you soon for some more Premier League action!
94'
FT: Wolves 1-2 Liverpool. Wolves had an astonishing second half, with chances, possession and incredible team play all in their favour, but it seems that Klopp's winning aura is too much to bare no matter how well you play. Robert Firmino scored a stunning goal in the 84th minute and showed exactly why Liverpool are going to win the Premier League this season: they always come up with a goal when needed, especially in the last ten minutes, and are now sixteen points clear with a game in hand.
90'
JOTA HAD IT! Traore gets in down the right again, and his deep cross finds Jimenez at the back post, who controls and sets up Jota, who scoops the ball wide - the ball was slightly behind him!
90'
Four minutes of added time! Can Wolves turn this around after a stunning match?
88'
Wolves have been outstanding. Truly. But this Premier League is well and truly Liverpool's to lose now...
87'
Joao Mourinho comes off for Morgan Gibbs-White - they've been superb, especially in this second half, but can Wolves get anything from this game?
85'
Liverpool make their third and final change immediately after the goal - Mohamed Salah comes off for Divock Origi.
85'
They've done it again! It's Roberto Firmino! Salah keeps the ball well in the box, and Henderson picks out Firmino in the box, who cuts in and shoots fiercely into the top corner with his left-foot!
84'
GOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!! AMAZING TEAM PLAY BY LIVERPOOL!!
82'
Great save by Rui Patricio! Firmino jinks into the box and after sitting the Wolves keeper down, his left-foot shot is straight at Patricio! What a chance! Wolves win a free-kick from the subsequent corner. Will we have a winner late on here?
80'
10 to go at Molineux... and you have to say it's Wolves looking more threatening! Jota wins a free-kick down the left - Gomez is a little too physical for Michael Oliver's liking.
76'
First substitution for Wolves - Pedro Neto makes way for Diego Jota.
74'
Traore is causing havoc! He beats Fabinho in the centre of the park, shifts the ball on his right foot up against Van Dijk and shoots from long-range, but it drifts wide! Could he have taken on Van Dijk?!
73'
Pedro Neto goes on a surging run into the penalty area - with every Reds player scared to touch him, Neto keeps the ball for ages before eventually being dispossessed!
71'
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the one to make way for Fabinho, making his first appearance since November.
68'
Another good save from Alisson! Raul Jimenez is played in behind by Traore - the Mexican tries to catch the Liverpool keeper out at his near post, but Alisson stands firm and beats the ball away! Liverpool are on the ropes...
66'
Now a Neves ball arcs across the six-yard line..., This Wolves team is giving Liverpool more trouble than any recent rival!
65'
What a save from Alisson! Traore has room again and is thwarted by a low one-handed stop as he looks to rake one into the bottom corner!
64'
Neto has looked trickily useful at times without quite getting away down that left flank. He does pretty well again but then Wolves are forced back. They sensibly build again from the back; they are controlling this game just now.
60'
Good chance this for Roberto Firmino! Salah sets up Minamino on the edge of the box, and his blocked shot falls to Firmino who shoots first-time straight at Patricio - who was stranded on the ground!
57'
Moutinho’s free-kick is punched away by Alisson. Wolves are all over this!!
56'
And Traore is away again... and Robertson is booked for scything him down just outside the area... That could have easily become a penalty.
53'
Wolves are full in this now! Liverpool might be in for a surprise...
52'
It’s a brilliant, trademark, powerful header from the striker, and what a one-two! It’s Jimenez who marauds into the Liverpool half and feeds Traore into space before continuing his run into the box. Traore delivers expertly and directs his finish wonderfully into the corner on the run!
51'
GOAAAAAAALLLLLL!!!! RAUL JIMENEZ!!!!
50'
Mo Salah cuts in from the left onto his right-foot, but the shot is weak and straight at Rui Patricio.
46'
Back underway in Molineux!
45'
HT: Wolves 0-1 Liverpool. It's been a very good first-half - Jordan Henderson's header/shoulder from Alexander-Arnold's corner in the eighth minute is what separates the two sides. Wolves have played well, and have caused the Liverpool defence problems at times. Sadio Mane has come off injured, giving a chance for new signing Takumi Minamino to shine in the second-half. See you in 15!
45'
Great block by Matt Doherty! Salah surges past two Wolves players into the penalty area, but his goalbound shot is blocked brilliantly by Doherty. Big moment just before the half-time whistle. Salah might be told off for not passing that...
45'
Traoré runs into Van Dijk, and it looks painful for both players.... . Two minutes of added time at the end of the first half.
43'
Jimenez thought he had a clear crack at goal after fine work by Saiss but Van Dijk, giant among men that he is, tracks him all the way and blocks.
42'
Corner for Wolves after what could have easily been an equaliser had Van Dijk not been there!
38'
A long cross from the right falls to Raul Jimenez in the box at the back post. The Mexican cuts inside, but pulls his shot wide of Alisson's near post! Not a bad opening for the Wolves striker.
36'
A period of sustained Liverpool possession, with Minamino getting his first touches of the ball, is halted after Firmino's lofted pass is intercepted. After the rapid start, the game has just lulled sightly in the last 10.
33'
Sadio Mane comes off, with new signing Takumi Minamino replacing the injured Senegalese.
32'
Game paused again here, as Sadio Mane looks to be struggling. He then gets up, to a huge groan amongst the home faithful, but he goes down and then gets up again! It looks like he won't be able to continue.
30'
Jonny attempts to beat the Liverpool centre back down the outside but Van DIjk muscles him out the way, shielding the ball behind for a goal kick. Good luck getting past the Dutchman...
25'
Roberto Firmino, with Liverpool on the attack, sportingly kicks the ball out with Ruben Neves down in the centre of the pitch, after Sadio Mane's (fair) challenge. The game is paused...
21'
Dendoncker makes a vital challenge to stop Mane running through onto an Oxlade-Chamberlain ball. A very good Premier League game, this.
20'
Traore bounces four of five Liverpool players off him in midfield and works space; it’s a quite awesome display of strength and soloism. Then he goes and spoils it all with a wayward pass-
17'
Now Traore beat Robertson on the other side and, from his centre, Van Dijk has to chaperone Jimenez carefully away from goal.
15'
The scoresheet doesn't show it, but this has actually been a very good start for Wolves. They've been pressing hard and created chances for themselves.
12'
What a miss from Doherty!!! Wolves take their corner short, and the ball is swung in and Matt Doherty, all alone in the box, heads wide, looking to direct his header into the far corner!
11'
Traore, on the left, goes outside Alexander-Arnold and now wins Wolves a corner. His presence on the pitch is outstanding.
9'
VAR checks for a supposed handball, but it seems a bit unnecessary and indeed nothing comes of it. The goal stands.
9'
It's the Reds captain who puts the league leaders in front! Trent Alexander-Arnold's corner is swung in from the right, and Jordan Henderson's run to the near post is headed (or more like shouldered) in, despite Rui Patricio's best efforts. Liverpool take the lead early at Molineux!
8'
GOAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLL!!! JORDAN HENDERSON!!
6'
Not the best kick, but it leads to a corner.
5'
Mo Salah is taken down on the counter and it leads to a free-kick... Alexander-Arnold will shoot.
4'
Wolves mount up an attack as Adama Traore is tackled by Alexander-Arnold. A very disciplined Wolves do their best to create something meaningful, but the ball is eventually cleared by Liverpool's defense.
3'
Liverpool controlling the game early on, with Alexander-Arnold starting an attack with a switch to Robertson. Ultimately, though, a long pass sails over the byline.
1'
And we're off!
Prev.
But Klopp has answered back... Quite the line.up, huh? Salah, Firmino and Mane all on tonight.
Prev.
Liverpool edged past Nuno Espirito Santo’s team at Anfield a mere four weeks ago thanks to Sadio Mane’s goal. They’d take an identical outcome tonight; with Adama Traoré on the line-up, it's expected to be an exhuasting clash for Klopp's men tonight.
Prev.
It might not feel that way, but this is a BIG game in the Premier League season. Wolves are famously spirited at home, and encounters against them are often dreaded by the Premier League's biggest teams. just ask Guardiola, who recently lost to Nuno's team...
Prev.
Liverpool starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson, Oxlade Chamberlain, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Salah, Firmino, Mane
Prev.
Wolves starting XI: Rui Patricio, Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Joao Moutinho, Neves, Jonny, Pedro Neto, Jimenez, Traore.
Prev.
Yes, you read that right! It's been exactly a year since Wolves shocked Liverpool by becoming one of the few teams that managed to beat them in a stunning 2018/2019 season. Another reason to tune in tonight...
