Commentary

That’s all for now. Goodbye!
The victory takes Liverpool into sixth, with the Reds leapfrogging Tottenham and Everton, who both lost at the weekend. Wolves remain 13th.
It’s all over at Molineux, where Diogo Jota’s goal against his former club has handed Liverpool a much-needed victory – their second successive win on the road in the league. However, a head injury for Rui Patricio, who was at fault for the goal, has put a dampener on the game as a whole.
90' + 18' FULL TIME: WOLVES 0-1 LIVERPOOL.
90' + 17' Was that the chance for Wolves? Traore drives through from midfield, only to float in a cross which forces Neto wide. He manages to keep it alive, but his drilled delivery is parried away by Alisson, and that will surely be game up.
90' + 15' Another header from Silva, but again he directs it right down Alisson’s throat.
90' + 14' CLOSE! Salah looks to curl one to the right-hand post, but just puts too much on it and Ruddy watches it sail wide.
90' + 12' Patricio is just the third goalkeeper to be subbed off in a Premier League game this season after David de Gea (Manchester United vs Southampton in November) and Jordan Pickford (Everton vs Burnley on Saturday).
90' + 11' The game is back up and running. We are in the 101st minute.
J. Ruddy
Rui Patrício
90' + 10' Patricio has now been placed safely onto the stretcher, and the medical staff are carefully taking the goalkeeper off the field. Ruddy, who could well be in for an extended run in the side, is coming on.
90' + 8' Still no sign of when this game will be restarting, though there will be plenty of time left to play whenever it does get going – certainly more than the allotted seven minutes of stoppage.
90' + 5' It has been 10 minutes now since Patricio went down, and rightly so the Wolves medical staff are taking their time to get him safely off the pitch. There is real concern at Molineux, but the goalkeeper is in good hands.
90' + 3' There has been seven minutes of time added on, though there will be much more played, as Patricio is not yet on the stretcher.
90' + 2' Nuno is clearly distressed on the touchline, and Coady looks shaken up. It was a hefty collision at full pace, and a frustrating night for Wolves now looks to have taken a much worse turn. Patricio is still on the pitch, receiving careful treatment before he is placed onto the stretcher.
90' Indeed, it is a head injury – Coady’s knee seemed to collide heavily with Patricio – and there will be a concussion substitute. Ruddy has warmed up and is ready to come on. Of course, that will mean Liverpool get the chance to make another change.
88' Wolves have of course been hit hard by Jimenez’s head injury earlier this season and, while it is not 100 per cent clear, this could be something similar. Patricio has not moved and is lying flat on his back, and the stretcher is getting brought onto the field.
87' This is a worry for Wolves. Patricio, who appeared to take a hit from Coady, is lying motionless on the turf, and the Wolves medics are on the pitch.
86' NO GOAL! Salah slotted home brilliantly after getting onto Oxlade-Chamberlain’s pass, but the flag goes straight up for offside.
85' Gibbs-White is immediately through after latching onto Silva’s clever flick, but Kabak races across to stem the danger. That would have been some interdiction for the Wolves substitute.
M. Gibbs-White
Nélson Semedo
84' Nuno also has his last throw of the dice. Gibbs-White has come on for Semedo, who could easily have scored – and won a penalty – early on.
A. Oxlade-Chamberlain
Diogo Jota
82' A final switch for the visitors and it is Jota – the matchwinner as it stands – who goes off. He is replaced by Oxlade-Chamberlain.
80' SAVE! That would have been game over, surely? Salah gets his first chance to skip in behind Wolves’ line and, on his weaker right foot, takes on the shot, but Patricio tips it away from goal. Liverpool keep up the pressure, with Jota finding space for a strike, yet Patricio holds on.
79' Mane gets the chance to shoot, but his effort – curled straight to Patricio – lacks conviction. Wolves go up the other end and it is crossed in to Silva, but his header loops into Alisson's grasp.
78' It really is a sign of the times for Liverpool that, rather than look to build on their lead, they seem more concerned about holding on. You cannot blame Klopp’s men – they desperately need a victory.
L. Dendoncker
Rúben Neves
76' A second change for Wolves. Neves is off, with Dendoncker, who offers more of an aerial threat, coming on.
75' Liverpool certainly seem on edge, but so far Wolves are just lacking that attacking thrust and precise passing to take advantage.
73' Traore tests Alisson with a powerful effort, but Liverpool’s goalkeeper stands firm. Really, it was the wrong decision from the Wolves attacker, who had Neto in support but delayed the pass and then had little choice but to take on the strike.
72' Liverpool's Milner is making his 158th Premier League appearance as a substitute, the joint most in the competition's history alongside Peter Crouch.
Fábio Silva
Willian José
70' Here is that first Wolves change, in fact, and it is Silva who comes on, replacing Willian Jose.
69' Klopp has played his first hand, but Nuno is still keeping his powder dry. That being said, looking at Wolves’ bench, it is perhaps no surprise. There is not much in the way of experience on it, while Silva is the only real attacker.
N. Keïta
Thiago Alcântara
67' The second change sees Thiago, who looked bemused, make way for Keita. The former Bayern Munich man had been booked, of course.
J. Milner
G. Wijnaldum
67' A double change for Liverpool. First, Wijnaldum makes way for Milner.
66' No penalty! Alexander-Arnold clearly places a hand on Moutinho, who collapses in a heap in the Liverpool box, screaming for a spot-kick. It was only a very slight touch from the full-back, and did not seem enough for Moutinho to go down, though it is unclear if Pawson saw it.
65' Great goalkeeping! Traore put on the afterburners to burst down the right wing and drilling in an inviting delivery. No Wolves player had gambled on it, though, and Alisson sticks out an arm to parry it away.
64' Robertson’s free-kick causes trouble for Wolves’ defence, who cannot clear their lines. Mane looks to race onto a loose ball, but can’t get there ahead of Patricio, and would have been offside anyway.
63' Good work from Thiago, who nips in to intercept a slack pass from Patricio and win a free-kick down the right flank. Robertson stands over it…
62' That’s dreadful from Willian Jose! He broke the lines with a decent run onto Neto’s pass. He has two runners in support, only to pick the wrong option and compound the mistake by overhitting his attempted pass straight to Alisson.
60' Liverpool have managed to hold Wolves at bay so far since the restart, though they will know this game is far from up, especially given the form they have been in. Wolves, though, do seem to have run out of ideas, somewhat.
57' After his opener, only Jiménez (18) has scored more Premier League goals at Molineux than Jota (11 – level with Steven Fletcher).
55' Perhaps a lucky escape for Jonny who, after doing well to deny Salah a path to goal, gave away possession to the Egypt international right on the edge of Wolves’ box, but referee Craig Pawson blows up for a free-kick.
54' Coady has attempted four shots in his last three Premier League appearances, twice as many as he'd registered in his previous 102 in the competition (two shots).
R. Saïss
Yellow Card
52' Jota is stopped in his tracks by Saiss, and the Wolves defender duly receives a card.
49' CHANCE! That’s a big opportunity for Coady who, against his former club, headed over from around six yards out after meeting a cross from the right flank. He should really have kept that on target!
47' Only Sheffield United (22) have conceded the first goal in more Premier League games this season than Wolves (19 - level with West Brom). Nuno’s side have also failed to score in the first half in 22 of their 29 top-flight matches this season.
46' Kick-off! We are back up and running at Molineux.
Nuno will be pleased with what his side have offered up until the final third but, as has often been the case this season for Wolves, they have lacked the cutting edge required. Jurgen Klopp, meanwhile, will be wanting his team to snatch a quick goal to put this one to bed and get them back on track.
Wolves can consider themselves unlucky, as they have created plenty in the first half, but its ultimately Liverpool who have the lead due to Patricio’s error. The Reds have been far from convincing, though have shown some signs of promise moving forward and have got a goal as their reward.
45' + 3' HALF-TIME: WOLVES 0-1 LIVERPOOL.
S. Mané
Assist
45' + 2' The assist was probably better than the finish. Mane’s flick on for Jota was exceptional, and though the forward rather scuffed his attempt, Patricio did his former team-mate a favour.
Diogo Jota
Goal
45' + 2' GOOOOOAAAAALLL!! JOTA IS BACK TO HAUNT WOLVES! Right on the stroke of half-time, it’s Liverpool who hit the front. It’s former Wolves forward Jota who gets it, but his effort really should have been kept out by Patricio, who palmed the shot into the bottom-left corner. It’s 1-0 to Liverpool.
45' CHANCE! A wicked Neto cross evades a crowd of players and finds its way through to Neves. He takes a touch to set himself, but just drags his strike wide.
44' Neves goes for goal from the resulting free-kick. His effort is well struck, but soars straight to Alisson, who makes a comfortable stop.
Thiago Alcântara
Yellow Card
42' Another bit of unconvincing goalkeeping from Alisson, who elected not to catch a loose ball but rather punch it. Liverpool have to scrap it clear before Wolves get it back, and Thiago finally receives a booking which had been coming after he tripped Thiago.
40' Another poor tackle from Thiago and, given Neves has just been booked, he really can consider himself fortunate not to get a card for what was a rash challenge on the Wolves playmaker.
39' CLOSE! That’s a really slick Liverpool move. The Reds move it from left to right at pace, giving Salah the chance to square up his marker. His path to goal is covered, but he lays it off to Alexander-Arnold, whose cross invites Mane into a diving header. The Senegal star makes good contact, but sends his effort wide.
Rúben Neves
Yellow Card
37' The first booking of the game goes to Neves, who lunged in on Mane.
35' Wolves are looking to record back-to-back home Premier League wins for only the second time in the last two seasons, winning their final two at Molineux in the 2019-20 season.
32' Vital touch from Phillips! Willian Jose was unmarked at the back post and looked set to latch onto a cross from the right, but Phillips just manages to get a glancing header on it, and Liverpool escape unscathed.
30' It has taken half-an-hour, but Liverpool appearing to be finding a way through Wolves’ press. However, there has still only been the one chance for the Reds, when Mane raced through.
28' Liverpool have had three shots so far, meaning they have now scored with just two of their last 71 attempts in the Premier League.
26' Despite Wolves’ press, Liverpool are not shying away from trying to play out from the bak. However, after being forced to go back to Alisson, they lose possession with a stray kick from their goalkeeper.
24' In a 38-game Premier League season, only three teams have finished the season in the top four having won 43 or fewer points with 10 games remaining – Leeds United in 2000-01 (43), Liverpool in 2003-04 (42) and Manchester United last season (42).
21' Wasteful again from Traore! Wolves are really getting at Liverpool on the counter, but their final ball is just lacking at the moment – Traore failing to find Willian Jose at the culmination of an excellent run down the centre of the pitch.
19' Wolves are showing plenty of intent, and Traore has done well to win a corner down the right flank. Wolves go short, but the resulting cross is a poor one, and Liverpool clear.
17' Moutinho is back on his feet and will be fine to carry on. He's immediately involved as he plays a neat throughball into Neto's path, and the youngster forces a throw-in deep in Liverpool's half.
15' There’ll be a pause in play now, as Moutinho receives treatment. Thiago lost control of the ball and lunged in. There did not appear to have been any intent in the tackle, but it was a poor one, and the Spain playmaker is perhaps fortunate to get away without a caution.
14' Another opportunity! It’s a really open game at Molineux and Wolves should have done better. Thiago collides with Moutinho and Wolves pick up the loose ball. In a three-on-three situation, Willian Jose gets down the left and then picks out Traore. However, instead of shooting first time, the winger tries to take on Kabak, who manages to intervene and halt the move.
13' CHANCE! Kabak threads a pass into midfield and it is worked through to Mane, who gets the better of Patricio. However, the forward’s touch just forces him wide and, after cutting onto his right foot, Wolves get back to clear their lines.
11' Another effort from Semedo, who has been heavily involved so far. He tries his luck from the centre of the box, but his shot is blocked.
9' Good pressure from Wolves, who win the ball back high upfield. Willian Jose attempts to make a dart into the box, but Neto either doesn’t spot him or decides against playing in the cross, and the hosts have to recycle possession.
7' Liverpool have made plenty of sluggish starts as of late and Wolves are certainly on top in the opening stages here. Given Liverpool’s league form, Nuno clearly wants his team to get after the reigning champions early on.
5' CHANCE! Traore finds plenty of space between Liverpool’s defence and midfield. He holds up the play before lay it off for Semedo, who drills an effort at Alisson, but the goalkeeper holds on.
4' Liverpool have not lost an away league game against Wolves since August 1981, winning four and drawing three of their seven trips to Molineux since, though the Reds nearly made an abysmal start there. 
2' Fumble from Alisson! A really nervy start from Liverpool’s goalkeeper, who comes out to meet Traore’s cross only to drop it right at the feet of Semedo, who just can’t react quickly enough to capitalise, and the referee dismisses the appeals for a penalty. That's a let off for the Reds.
1' KICK-OFF! We are underway at Molineux!
The teams are out and we are ready for kick-off!
There is no Roberto Firmino for Liverpool, but Wolves have one of their former starts Jota to worry about. The Portugal international leads Liverpool’s line, flanked by Salah and Mane, while Kabak and Phillips continue in defence after impressing against RB Leipzig.
LIVERPOOL SUBSTITUTES: James Milner, Naby Keita, Adria, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Curtis Jones, Xherdan Shaqiri, Rhys Williams, Neco Williams.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Nathaniel Phillips, Ozan Kabak, Andrew Robertson; Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho, Georginio Wijnaldum; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane.
One change from Nuno Espirito Santo from the side that started in the 0-0 draw with Aston Villa last time out. Boly returns to the defence, replacing Dendoncker.
WOLVES SUBSTITUTES: John Ruddy, Vitinha, Morgan Gibbs-White, Leander Dendoncker, Maximilian Kilman, Christian Marques, Ki-Jana Hoever, Fabio Silva.
WOLVES (3-4-3): Rui Patricio; Willy Boly, Conor Coady, Romain Saiss; Nelson Semedo, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Jonny; Pedro Neto, Willian Jose Adama Traore.
Wolves, on the other hand, have struggled for consistency this term, especially after losing Raul Jimenez. They sit safely in mid-table, though, having drawn two and lost one of their last three outings.
Liverpool’s fall from grace has been astounding. They were sitting pretty at the turn of the year, yet a run of just three wins from 12 league games has left them challenging for the European places.
