Liverpool played at Anfield for Week 6 against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The 44,922-strong crowd witnessed a narrow 2-1 win against the visiting side. An own goal by Roger Johnson helped lift the Reds to a victory after the thrashing they received at White Hart Lane just six days previously.
The midweek Carling Cup game against Brighton helped boost the team's morale, a game which Liverpool won 2-1 at the Championship side's AMEX Stadium.
Wolves responded well to going behind, but it was Liverpool's Luis Suarez who found the second goal. Steven Fletcher was called off the bench and scored for the away side to bring the game within reach for Wolves. The Reds had chances to make it 3-1, but could not find the finish to do so.
