Wolves v Liverpool Match Report

Kenny Dalglish saw his side win for the first time since taking over the manager position against Wolverhampton.

Liverpool secured a 3-0 win against the Wolves yesterday afternoon away at the Molineux Stadium. IT was even done without their captain Steven Gerrard who served the last of this three-match ban.

Fernando Torres opened the scoring 36 minutes in, when midfielder Raul Meireles’ unselfishly passed the ball to the striker for a sure goal.

The second goal came five minutes after halftime from Meireles himself. The midfielder was 25 yards out when he volleyed the ball over Wolves defender Wayne Hennessey into the corner of the net beautifully.

Soon after though, Liverpool’s defence seemed to break down a bit, giving the Wolves their best chance of the game to score. Steven Fletcher’s deflected shot went into the hands of keeper Pepe Reina, failing to secure a much needed goal for the Wolves.

Former Liverpool youngster Adam Hammill made his debut for Wolverhampton in the 73rd minute. Hammill was able to make his presence known on the pitch with a few impressive crosses but failed to connect with fellow teammates to make anything of it.

Liverpool’s third and final goal came again from Torres in extra time. He was left unmarked when the ball bounced right to him, allowing him to safely put it in the back of the net to make it three for the Reds.

The much-needed win moved Liverpool up three places to 10th on the Premier League table with 29 points. Wolverhampton are still sitting in the relegation zone in 19th.
