Liverpool Run Riot Against Wolves to go Top of the Premiership With Tottenham

Liverpool moved back level on points with Tottenham at the top of the Premier League after a comfortable 4-0 win over Wolves.

The Reds took the lead after a Conor Coady howler allowed Mohamed Salah to fire home.

Gini Wijnaldum doubled the advantage after half-time with a superb curling shot in front of 2,000 delighted fans in the Kop end.

The game was effectively ended as a contest when Joel Matip headed home from Salah’s cross.

And a Nelson Semedo own goal rounded off the scoring on a thoroughly satisfactory evening for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Liverpool’s disappointing draw with Brighton last weekend coupled with the superb recent form of Chelsea and Tottenham meant there was pressure on them to deliver a performance tonight.

The Reds were relentless, putting their opponents to the sword in arguably their best league performance so far this season.

After a spell of just under a month on the sidelines, Liverpool welcomed back Trent Alexander-Arnold as the right-back came on as a second half substitute.

Tottenham Title Contenders 

Harry Kane became the king of the North London derby as he has now scored 11 goals in this fixture which is more than any other player in history.

It put Tottenham joint top of the table, with Arsenal stranded in 15th place, 11 points behind and yet the painful truth the distance between the two clubs looks way bigger.

Jose Mourinho’s men are genuine title challengers, Mikel Arteta might soon find himself in a relegation battle if he is not careful as they have managed just one win in seven Premier League games.

Tottenham were ruthless, disciplined and commanding. Arsenal naive, wasteful and shorn of any belief or confidence. Mourinho’s upward trajectory is in stark contrast to Arteta’s downward spiral.

Arsenal’s defending was sloppy and it was an open invitation for the Premier League’s best double act in Kane and Heung-Min Son who are breaking new goalscoring records every week.
