Liverpool came from a goal down to beat Wolves after scoring two late goals to earn a victory at Molineux and go top of the Premier League.

It was a beautiful way to celebrate 200th appearance for Liverpool as Andy Robertson put the Reds ahead for the first time on 85 minutes.

Harvey Elliot goal bound effort then took a deflection off Hugo Bueno for an own goal to seal the victory in stoppage time.

Wolves had dominated proceedings immediately the Referee signaled commencement of the game and deservedly opened the scoring through Hwang Hee-Chan.

Cody Gakpo brought Liverpool level at the start of the second half when he converted Mohamed Salah’s fizzing cross-shot.

The win moves Liverpool one point clear at the top of the table although the result of other matches will determine if they will continue to seat at the top of the log.
