Liverpool won 2-0 at home to Wolves in the Premier League, with supporters lauding the victory and looking ahead to Man United.
The Reds made a quickfire return to action on Wednesday evening, in what was a must-win game in the top-four chase.
Liverpool huffed and puffed in the opening 45 minutes and aside from two decent chances for Harvey Elliott it wasn’t an entertaining half of football.
Darwin Nunez saw a goal disallowed shortly after the hour mark, following a VAR check, but Virgil van Dijk put the hosts in front in the 73rd minute.
Soon after, Mohamed Salah doubled the Reds’ advantage and the Liverpool saw out the win, with supporters then taking to social media to provide their thoughts.
There was mass relief, and praise, at the final whistle…
That really feels like a huge win for Liverpool. Seemed like it was heading for a repeat of Palace but we managed to find the breakthrough. One of our best defensive performances of the season too.

A *much* needed win for LFC
They toiled in the first half & forced a breakthrough in the second. For all Jota’s endeavour I thought things made more sense once Gakpo was introduced.
The table’s looking a little kinder tonight.

You could say it's only Wolves but Liverpool got thumped 3-0 by the same opponent only last month. A really determined performance the difference this time, as summed up by the refusal to let heads drop after Nunez's goal was ruled out and a fourth straight league clean sheet.

“Much better performance.”

“Up to 6th we go!! With games in hand btw”

Lots of positives about the manner of that win tonight. 4 PL clean sheets in a row and my mate Darwin back and being a pest! Get in, reds! #LIVWOL

Something to get behind with that second half at least. Just about. But still something.

Three points and big goal difference advance on the team in 18th place.
Don't try and change me…

Referee Paul Tierney was appalling all evening…
Mad when people think you should be respectful to referees *this* bad.
— Ryan (@ryan3levis) March 1, 2023
Well done, Reds – 10 points in four games, how on earth!!!
I'd like to dedicate that win to Paul Tierney – hope he treads on a plug barefoot tonight.

Obviously Tierney was going to disallow that.

I can only imagine the tinge of excitement in Paul Tierney’s stomach when that opportunity presented itself.

A tremendous victory against a difficult Paul Tierney. The lads had to dig in against a troublesome opponent there.

If I speak about Paul Tierney, I will be suspended for 6 months.

It’s 10 points in four games – next up is United on Sunday…
Our league season in 2023 has either been a 2-0 win, a 0-0 draw, or a loss where we concede 3 goals. I'll take one of the first two for the weekend. Preferably the first one.

Gakpo for Jota, maybe Robbo for Kostas, and that should be the team that starts against United.

“4th in sight”
– Kane Thompson on Facebook
“This would be 4th consecutive pl clean sheet and with konate at defense I am very hopeful for the United game”
– Ali Hoop in the This Is Anfield comments
Absolutely HUGE result. 3 wins from our last 4 league games, taking 10 points. 4 clean sheets in a row. We're massively out of form, but we may be slowly dragging our self into it.
Fabinho MOTM – Brilliant. Best game he's had all season.
Happy Wednesday! Bring on United! #LFC pic.twitter.com/WZpfx4UiE6
