Andy Robertson celebrates after scoring Liverpool’s second goal (PA)

Liverpool beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 away on Saturday thanks to two late goals in a scintillating comeback that sent the Reds – at least temporarily – to the top of the Premier League table.

The hosts dominated the first half at Molineux against an unusually sloppy Liverpool, with Hwang Hee-chan stroking in a 7th minute goal after a brilliant run from Pedro Neto, before Wolves missed a string of further chances.

Liverpool came out transformed in the second half, however, and Mohamed Salah set up fellow striker Cody Gakpo for a tap-in equaliser in the 55th minute.

Wearing the captain’s armband on his 200th Premier League appearance, Andy Robertson slid in Liverpool’s second from another Salah pass in the 85th minute as the visitors poured forward.

Liverpool made it three in time added on, with Wolves’ Hugo Bueno touching the ball into his own net from a shot by Harvey Elliott, sending the away fans into delirium.

The result put Liverpool top of the table for now on 13 points after five games. Wolves are 15th on three points.

    Wolves 1-3 Liverpool: match report

    14:59 , Sonia Twigg

    Liverpool’s late show fired Jurgen Klopp’s men to a 3-1 comeback win at Wolves.

    Andrew Robertson and Hugo Bueno’s own goal saw the Reds escape Molineux with a victory which looked unlikely at half-time.

    Hwang Hee-Chan’s early opener gave Wolves the lead as the hosts dominated and only a woeful miss by Matheus Cunha stopped them going further ahead.

    Liverpool were wretched in the first half but slowly improved, levelling through Cody Gakpo before breaking Wolves’ resistance with four minutes left for a third comeback win of the season.

    Klopp: “We have a really good squad and a super bench today. There is no quality no doubt about it, but even with quality you can play really bad and that’s what we did in the first half.”

    Klopp on Robertson: “He didn’t score that many goals because his goalscoring record would not be great. An amazing player for us, super consistent over the years.

    “I think Curtis made his 100th game today which is pretty special.”

    14:55 , Sonia Twigg

    Jurgen Klopp to TNT Sport: “It was that bad that I didn’t think we could play the second half like that.

    “Low energy level, sometimes as well you could just see they struggled and we changed the system and one player and had a bit more speed up front.

    “We changed pretty much everything at half time. The first half was really bad but the second half was really good.

    “Massive three points. Wolves did exceptionally well, they caused us so many problems, especially one on one situations with Neto that we shouldn’t have let happen.”

    Robertson on Salah: “Even during the speculation I thought he was superb on the pitch. Now that’s done and dusted I think he put in a good second half performance.

    “Second half he was really good and probably the difference for us.”

    FT: Wolves 1-3 Liverpool

    14:43 , Sonia Twigg

    Andy Robertson to TNT Sport: “We obbviouly weren’t at the races first half. I think it took us 45 minutes to get into it, Wolves were the better team and we made too many mistakes.

    “I think we dominated the second half and probably got the right result based on the second half performance.

    On his goal: “I don’t get many goals so it’s always nice to score. I just thought I might as well go in there, Mo (Salah) can always pick a pass.”

    14:30 , Sonia Twigg

    Full time: After 100 minutes, Michael Oliver has blown for full time as the game just meandered to the finish.

    Well that was far from straightforward, and it looked at half time like Wolves might have gone on to win the game.

    But Liverpool, as they have done so often, have just come into the game at the right time, made the right subsitutions and gone up a gear or two.

    It was capped off by Robertson’s goal to put Liverpool ahead, but Salah should also recieve the plaudits for his three assists.

    90 +6 mins: Sa had to prevent the scoreline becoming more flattering to Liverpool, but Robertson’s goal has sealed all three points for the visitors.

    14:24 , Sonia Twigg

    90+4 mins: Salah has come off for new Liverpool signing Gravenberch for the final few minutes of added time now that the result is no longer in doubt.

    Elliott will be disappointed as the goal has been awarded a Bueno own goal following the fortunate deflection.

    14:22 , Sonia Twigg

    90+3 mins: Elliott was shown the yellow card for his celebrations after the goal, but Dawson is still down after an elbow from Darwin Nunez that VAR only briefly looked at in the build up to the goal.

    GOAL: Wolves 1-3 Liverpool! Harvey Elliott

    14:21 , Sonia Twigg

    90+1 mins: The change has paid off and the Liverpool substitute has his and his team’s third, Salah finding Elliott whose shot takes a fortunate deflection off the Wolves defender and into the back of the net.

    That was an incredible turnaround from Liverpool who were substantially below par in the first half.

    Wolves 1-2 Liverpool

    14:19 , Sonia Twigg

    89 mins: Robertson is in action at the other end to stop Wolves, he has had a really good game at the Molineux.

    14:16 , Sonia Twigg

    87 mins: Diaz has a chance to put the game beyond Wolves after being played in, but the defenders are able to make the challenge and scramble the ball away.

    83 mins: And Kounate has come on for Quansah who has had a decent debut here, Kounate who has only been in training since Thursday so was not risked from the start.

    14:10 , Sonia Twigg

    80 mins: There was a big shout from the Wolves fans for handball by Matip in the Liverpool box, but his arms were pinned to his sides.

    Another problem for Liverpool with Quansah receiving some treatment for what looks like cramp

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    14:07 , Sonia Twigg

    77 mins: Wolves are sitting back a bit too much here and just inviting the pressure.

    Liverpool are able to win the ball back just outside the box, with the home side scrambling to clear.

    Lemina and Bellegarde have come off in a double substitution from Wolves, with Traoré and Doyle coming on.

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    14:05 , Sonia Twigg

    76 mins: The game has just settled down here but it’s Liverpool with most of the possession.

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    14:02 , Sonia Twigg

    73 mins: Wolves fans are up in arms, but a foul has been awarded Liverpool’s way by Michael Oliver, when Lemina would have been in.

    It was potentially a bit of a soft foul, but Wolves would have been away.

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    14:01 , Sonia Twigg

    72 mins: Nelson Semedo has been shown a yellow card for delaying a free-kick

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    13:59 , Sonia Twigg

    70 mins: Nunez could have scored there! He took an extra touch and it was blocked by a combination of goalkeeper and Wolves defenders.

    Nunez did well to run into the box and make space for the shot but overhit one of his touches and was outstretched trying to poke the ball into the back of the net.

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    13:58 , Sonia Twigg

    64 mins: Just a small break in play here while Ait-Nouri receives some treatment on the field.

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    13:51 , Sonia Twigg

    62 mins: Liverpool look a completely different team to the one that started the match.

    They are attacking and putting the pressure back on Wolves rather than allowing them to dictate play.

    Wolves 1-1 Liverpool

    13:49 , Sonia Twigg

    60 mins: Whether that’s the Liverpool changes or the injection from the goal, Wolves will make two changes.

    Doherty has come off for goalscorer Hwang. And Silva will come on for Cunha.

    GOAL! Wolves 1-1 Liverpool Gakpo scores!

    13:45 , Sonia Twigg

    55 mins: Gakpo who has been out of the game so far, is just in the right place to turn the ball in at the far post.

    It’s Salah with the assist, just firing the ball across the face of the goal and Gakpo was in the right place at the right time, for what turned out to be his last involvement in the game.

    Nunez and Elliot have come on, with Jota the other player to make way.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:43 , Sonia Twigg

    53 mins: It looks like there will be a double change from Liverpool, in addition to the one they made at half time.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:41 , Sonia Twigg

    53 mins: Liverpool have kept the pressure on and will have a corner.

    But there is a problem and Lemina is down holding his head.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:40 , Sonia Twigg

    51 mins: Matip did a lot better there to cut out the ball from reaching Neto.

    That was a problem area for Liverpool in the first half.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:38 , Sonia Twigg

    49 mins: Wolves get forward, and Jota struggles to keep up with Cunha, who manages to cross but there are no Wolves players in the box and Alisson gathers.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:36 , Sonia Twigg

    47 mins: Liverpool have started this half a lot better than the first already, Diaz involved almost immediatley but can’t head a Robertson cross on target.

    A good start from the visitors

    HT: Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:33 , Sonia Twigg

    Liverpool will make a change at half time with Luis Diaz coming on for Alexis Mac Allister.

    Liverpool already out on the field.

    13:19 , Sonia Twigg

    45 mins +2: That has been Wolves’ half but for the neutral it has been entertaining and end to end, with chances on offer for both sides.

    Gakpo had the best of Liverpool’s opportunities but a goal early from Hwang Hee-Chan separates the sides at the break.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:17 , Sonia Twigg

    46 mins: There will be two minuets of added time at the end of the first half and Liverpool make the most of it!

    Salah has a shot blocked, before it comes out to Szoboszlai who strikes and again it is blocked.

    Better from the visitors, but there are problems again on the break almost immediately afterwards.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:16 , Sonia Twigg

    45 mins: Gakpo has another chance!

    The ball is crossed in from Gomez and Gakpo jumps but can’t keep his header down – it was his and Liverpool’s second real chance of the half.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:15 , Sonia Twigg

    44 mins: Liverpool have to defend and it’s Robertson who come across to the right to make the clearance.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:12 , Sonia Twigg

    41 mins: Liverpool are having their brightest passage of play since the game has started, but still look shaky whenever Wolves go on the counter-attack.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:10 , Sonia Twigg

    39 mins: Chance! Gakpo missed the target but that’s the first chance Liverpool have had!

    Robertson plays the ball into the centre of the box and Gakpo runs onto the ball but can’t keep it down and it sails over the bar.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:09 , Sonia Twigg

    37 mins: Boos are ringing out after a foul was not awarded on the touchline and after a brief pause the game continues with Liverpool in possession in the half way line.

    The game was stopped with goalscorer Hwang holding his head, but all okay to continue.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:05 , Sonia Twigg

    34 mins: Chance for Wolves!

    Cunha should have scored there, Neto on the left picked out Cunha expertly in the centre of the box and in a bizarre way it just hits him on the chest with an open goal to aim at six yards out.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:04 , Sonia Twigg

    33 mins: Wolves have continued to work hard and put the pressure on.

    As the game goes on the question may be as to whether they can keep this intensity up for the whole game.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:01 , Sonia Twigg

    30 mins: Bellegarde has tried to be far too clever there!

    Instead of taking a shot on he backheels the ball into space and Liverpool are able to clear.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    13:00 , Sonia Twigg

    29 mins: Robertson to the rescue to turn the ball behind!

    Liverpool look in trouble whenever Wolves get forward here and they can’t make the key interceptions so are just inviting pressure and allowing the attackers to run at them.

    Dawson had half a chance from the corner, his header goes way wide, but he has to pick himself up after a collision with the post.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:58 , Sonia Twigg

    28 mins: Neto makes a run, and Liverpool have three players on him but only just manage to get back in time to rob the ball, before Neto fouls Mac Allister.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:58 , Sonia Twigg

    27 mins: Jota gets the cross in but there is no one in the six-yard box, as Gakpo looks on.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:55 , Sonia Twigg

    24 mins: Matip drives forwards and loses the ball, and Liverpool are really struggling to string passes together in the final third.

    Wolves are content for them to keep the ball around the half way line but there are problems for the reds further up the pitch.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:52 , Sonia Twigg

    21 mins: Not for the first time this season it is evident just how much Liverpool need a defensive midfielder, to hold the ball well in the opposition half, and to break down attacks.

    Alexis Mac Allister has been largely absent so far.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:51 , Sonia Twigg

    19 mins: Neto has managed to get a shot underway, it’s wide, but they definitely look more promising.

    Liverpool not holding on to it enough higher up the field, and they are not getting back quick enough, while the home side are ready to pounce on the break.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:49 , Sonia Twigg

    18 mins: This game is just settling down after the energetic start that saw Wolves take the lead, and as they were before the goal, they are content to just let Liverpool pass around, while keeping all 11 players behind the ball.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:46 , Sonia Twigg

    15 mins: Robertson just getting forward for the first time in the match so far, but Liverpool have not found their killer instinct in the final third so far.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:44 , Sonia Twigg

    13 mins: Jota skies one way over the bar after being picked out by Mohamed Salah, it is a half chance for Liverpool and they should be encouraged by it

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:43 , Sonia Twigg

    12 mins: Liverpool look like they have been stunned by the early goal, and their curse of early fixtures seems to be continuing here.

    They are just trying to settle and find their footing in this game, but there is still a long way to go in this match.

    Wolves 1-0 Liverpool

    12:41 , Sonia Twigg

    10 mins: Liverpool are firmly on the back foot here, and Gomez has to scramble to clear the ball away from Neto who was ready to bounce.

    Wolves are on top and looking for a second, sending many probing balls into the Liverpool box, perhaps trying to strike early with an inexperienced backline.

    GOAL! Wolves 1-0 Liverpool Hwang Hee-Chan

    12:39 , Sonia Twigg

    6 mins: Wolves invited Liverpool to commit to the attack, and they struck immediately on the breakthrough.

    Undone by one pass to Neto, who did well to attack, invite the challenges, get to the byline and then pass back to Hwang, who was the only player in the box.

    Alison could not make the save before the ball crossed the line, and it is the home side who have the lead here.

    Wolves v Liverpool

    12:36 , Sonia Twigg

    4 mins: YELLOW CARD Alexis Mac Allister, tugs at Cunha and he has been shown the yellow card by referee Michael Oliver, he might feel a bit aggrieved by that as it was not more than minimal contact

    Wolves v Liverpool

    12:34 , Sonia Twigg

    3 mins: Mohamed Salah has got on the ball and looked to feed in Szoboszlai, and while it does not come to anything it was an early sign of intent

    12:33 , Sonia Twigg

    2 mins: Liverpool have had to defend a corner already, swung towards the far post, but the visitors are able to clear the ball and prevent an early breakthrough

    1 minutes: Joe Gomez has taken up Trent Alexander-Arnold’s usual position as a marauding right back, while the debutant Jarell Quansah will play alongside Joel Matip in the centre of the Liverpool backline.

    Wolves manager Gary O’Neil told BBC Sport: “Liverpool coming is always a big occasion so looking forward to the game today.

    “Hwang Hee-Chan has scored a couple for us this year. He has taken his chances well and I felt he may add something for us today.

    “Liverpool are a good side. I’ve watched their first four league games and they were excellent.

    “They are in a very good spot this year and I think they will be very close to the top of the league.

    Jurgen Klopp said to BBC Sport ahead of the game on Andy Robertson taking over the captaincy for the upcoming match: “He is a really important player and plays pretty much all the time. I remember everything about it when we signed him, in my living room.

    “We were talking about football and the boy he was then, to the man he is now. It’s a really nice journey and I’m happy to be a part of it.”

    Jurgen Klopp told BBC Sport ahead of the game: “We have to see, it’s all early days for all the teams. Things cannot be settled yet so you have to work really hard to get game ideas on the pitch.”

    On his team changes: “The South Americans came back really late. We need them as substitutes. That’s the two offensive changes.

    “Ibrahima Konate only came back two days ago, we could have forced it, but Jarell Quansah came on twice and did really well. We tust him so I hope he can enjoy it.”

    Jurgen Klopp spoke yesterday about his displeasure at having to play the early fixture on Saturday.

    Last season Liverpool did not win any of their 12.30pm fixtures, but have the chance to rectify that at Wolves.

    11:15 , Sonia Twigg

    It has been a slight case of contrasting fortunes for the two teams – although it is worth mentioning that we are only four games into the season.

    Wolves have just one win and three defeats so far, but will be relatively confident as five teams have had worse starts to the season.

    While Liverpool sit level on points with Tottenham and just two behind Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

    Jurgen Klopp’s side have won three and drawn one game so far this campaign, although there have been problems concerning the midfield.

    The first of the Premier League fixtures after the international break sees Liverpool take on Wolves.

    The reds have a chance to go top of the league – at least until the other sides play, and have 10 points from their first four matches.

    But here is a look back to one of the sagas that dominated the transfer window and headlines before the international break:

    Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Mohamed Salah is staying at Liverpool as Dominik Szoboszlai revealed the Egyptian had told his teammates he wants to remain at Anfield rather than accept a lucrative move to Saudi Arabia.

    Liverpool rejected a £150m bid from Al-Ittihad for Salah this week, but while there has been the prospect the 31-year-old could become the world’s best-paid player, Klopp said he never questioned his commitment to the Merseyside club.

    The Saudi transfer window remains open but Klopp is adamant that Liverpool’s position remains the same and that Salah is not for sale
