“Definition of professional”, “Merry Christmas Reds” – Liverpool fans react to 2-0 win at Wolves

A professional Liverpool performance secured all three points in a 2-0 win over Wolves, and fans were delighted as the Reds remain top over Christmas.

Wolves 0-2 Liverpool

Premier League, Molineux
December 21, 2018

Goals: Salah 19′, Van Dijk 68′

The Reds travelled to Wolverhampton with the chance to secure top position for Christmas Day and establish a four-point buffer over Man City, and they did so with a well-disciplined performance which only exemplified their ever-growing maturity.

A rain-soaked Molineux had welcomed the two sides and paved the way for an end-to-end first half which Liverpool narrowly edged thanks to an early show of precision finishing from Mohamed Salah—his fifth goal in four games.

Liverpool were kept honest by Wolves throughout, but a poacher’s finish from Virgil van Dijk put the result beyond doubt midway through the second half and extended the Reds’ unbeaten streak to 18 games.

The three points, and an 11th clean sheet of the season, keep Jurgen Klopp‘s men at the top of the Premier League table, and here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.


Fans were in awe of Van Dijk’s striker’s finish & show of prowess throughout…

And Liverpool have gifted fans an early Christmas present…

“Clean sheet and 3 points in very difficult conditions and at a place where City dropped points; so very immense this. Mistakes were expected and we came out on top nonetheless.

“VVD, Salah and Fabinho immense. Could have scored more, could have conceded more, but deserved to win nonetheless!

“Merry Christmas! It looks wonderful from here at the top!”
