Origi’s Dramatic Late Winner vs Wolves Sends Liverpool To Top

Origi’s Dramatic Late Winner vs Wolves Sends Liverpool To Top

Divock Origi emerged as he came off the bench and scored a last-minute winner to give Liverpool a 1-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanders at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday.

Liverpool entered the match looking to capitalise on Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat away to West Ham earlier on Saturday, and they managed to see off Wolves which saw them usurp Chelsea at the top on the log.


The first half was a tense affair, with neither side managing a shot on target, although Mohamed Salah did find space at the back post after a brilliantly worked move, only to be denied a certain goal by Wolves defender Romain Saiss who intercepted and nicked the ball away.

Liverpool forward Diogo Jota missed a guilt-edge chance in the second half as stepped past goalkeeper Wolves Jose Sa but could not find a way around opposing defender Conor Coady, who blocked the forward’s shot on the goal line.

Jurgen Klopp’s side missed another big chance, this time in the dying stages, as forward Sadio Mane failed to score from seven yards out following a deflected header from midfielder Fabinho.

However, Origi struck the ball home from the edge of the six-yard box to secure three points for Liverpool.

And in other results Newcastle United earned their first win of the season after edging Burnley 1-0 while Brighton held Southampton to a 1-1 draw away.
