Thursday Recap

Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league in 2019-20 after seeing off a spirited challenge from Wolves.

The Reds needed little time to open the scoring against Nuno Espirito Santo's side. Henderson charged towards the near post and directed a header past Rui Patricio for his second Premier League goal of the season.

Henderson's opener came from yet another fine delivery from 21-year-old right-back Alexander-Arnold:

Wolves wasted a glorious chance to equalise three minutes later. Joao Moutinho floated a cross to an unmarked Matt Doherty at the far post from a short corner, but the defender could only head well wide.

Liverpool suffered a blow when Sadio Mane was forced off through injury on 33 minutes and replaced by Takumi Minamino:

Wolves levelled the scores four minutes into the second half. Jimenez played in Adama Traore down the right, and the winger crossed for the Mexican to head past Alisson:

The hosts did threaten to inflict a first Premier League defeat of the season on Liverpool. Traore forced Alisson into a good one-handed stop, while Jimenez was also denied by the Brazilian at a tight angle.

Yet it was Liverpool who managed to come up with a late winner. Henderson took a feed from Mohamed Salah and teed up Firmino, who cut inside and blasted a shot past Patricio to maintain their charge towards a first Premier League title.
