"It was brilliant - both goals". With that in mind, why wouldn't you want to watch this game online - for free!

In a lashing rain at Wolves, the Reds took the lead in the 18th minute when Fabinho picked out Salah with a clever cutback.

James Milner drew one save from Patricio with a left-footed piledriver before Wolves did begin to grow back into the game towards the end of the half, with Jonny Castro testing Alisson with a low strike which the keeper held well in the hard conditions.

Wijnaldum shot wide with the last kick of the game - but that mattered little, with another three points secured by Salah and Van Dijk.

The hosts have taken points off Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United already this season, but they looked short of ideas in the second half and Liverpool nearly added a third when Patricio thwarted Salah from a tight angle before Mane nodded off target from the resulting corner.

The Reds arrive at Molineux knowing Nuno Espirito Santo's team have drawn with champions Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal and beat Chelsea earlier this season, playing a fluid style under the Portuguese coach.

Manchester City can close the gap to Liverpool back to a point with a win at home to Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Jürgen Klopp believes Liverpool might need as many as 105 points to see off the threat of Manchester City and their Premier League rivals and win the title.

"The win was very important today", the Dutchman told Sky Sports.

"All my [defensive] partners are very good and it is a joy to play with all of them". It's a good decision to stay in charge of the game, and second half we could do that again. "I had a bit of a cold, so I wasn't 100 percent".

"In this period, we don't train too much, but we know how to grind things out and keep things tight". Winning here is a big step for us.

Fabinho was one of the standout performers for the visitors despite a couple of shaky moments against high intensity opposition.
