      Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp speaking to BBC Sport: "We scored a wonderful goal, we had wonderful possession but the set up from Wolves is so good - yes it's counter-attacking but it’s about being well in possession, using the width of the pitch.

      "The goal from a counter-attack doesn’t make sense when you’re one nil up but ok. We weren't 100% clear what we wanted to do, you try to have a positive optimistic approach.

      "We changed the system two or three times, we calmed it down. We had incredible chances in the first half and then at the end it was a magic moment from Bobby [Firmino].

      "The boys are human. It was a little bit up and down. We had discussion on the pitch, there was stuff to improve but set-pieces can bring us back in the game, a good bit of skill can bring us back in the game. Wolves were really strong but it’s clear we could settle again.

      "You just have to find a way to win and have someone who makes the perfect decision and that was Bobby again."

      On Sadio Mane's injury:
      "Sadio is a real shame he had to go off. Hopefully it’s not too bad -just a muscle tweak but we will see tomorrow."

      On Wolves' Adama Traore: "He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable. What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good."

      Well that wasn't fun was it but again we pass another hurdle.

      I have to pinch myself sometimes, it seems no matter what, whether we play bad or good has no impact on the results because the team believes that in the end, they will come off the pitch as winners. That mentality obviously comes with good form but right now it's that mentality which is the most important thing.

      Special shout-out to Ali today, although he didn't keep the clean sheet again he was alert and sharp to the attempts on his goal and I think Gary Neville of all people touched on it perfectly in the Spurs game, he sets himself apart from other goalkeepers in the prem with this positioning, making every save look easy because of his awareness of where to position himself before a shot has been taken.

      Let's keep going redmen!

      Massive credit to Wolves tonight, thought they were absolutely superb and the best team we've played away all season, it had me on the edge of my seat all night, but wow, what a game we played, never gave up, dug in when the going got tough and finally came away with the 3 well deserved points.
      I thought we lost our way a bit when Mane went off but we soon adjusted and took control, what I love about this team and we've done this several times this season is our ability to not be at the top of our game yet still pull out all the stops and get the winning goal, that's the sign of true champions. Magical stuff and a pleasure to watch this Liverpool team roll over everyone who comes up against them.

      Loving every minute even though my nerves are shot and my nails are gone !

      That ladies & Gentle persons was our toughest game of the season, we have to credit Wolves, they tested us that 2nd half and if we’re all honest coming away from Molyneaux with a point there wouldn’t be many complaints,

      Spot on.

      70 minutes in I was taking a point.  To be completely honest, I would have taken a point pre kick-off as well.

      Brilliant result.

      Yes, Wolves deserve a load of credit, but did anyone ever doubt that ?.
      The point is Klopp knew, so the game was played to what was needed, does not help with our nerves, but JK had it in order.

      Bit hacked off with AOC. He was strolling up and down the left hand side quite a bit from about 50 mins or so. We know he wants to play central but he has to do more. Didn't do all that much im the first half. Wants to stay on for the full 90 then he has to do more.

      He's still coming to terms with his long injury layoff I think.

      I know he's annoyed about being the first one off but in all honesty he always looks like the first one to come off as far as form goes.

      Plucky team. Use Traore's pace and strength.Nuno is a fighter. Like Jimenez as well but a lot of it was due to us getting a bit leggy on or about the hour mark. Was Mino the right man to bring on for that game.

      The Mane injury was probably fatigue related. He is one fantastic athlete but muscle fatigue can have an affect. Only next Wednesday 29th and we are away to West Ham.Then few days later 1sFeb home to Soton. Dare the boss rest him till Feb 16th and Norwich away.

      We play on Sunday but that's in the FA Cup against Shrewsbury so we're probably going to rest a few of the first team anyway.

      I know but we are back to the league next Wednesday. Can the Boss take the risk and rest him for the West Ham and Southampton league games.

      This was always going to be a season for Ox to build up his fitness again which takes months after such a serious knee injury.

      He will hopefully end this season strong, have a good Euros, and come back better than ever in August.

      He looks a totally different player being on from the start and being a sub IMO.

      Fabinho back soon so I'm expecting Ox to pick up second half of the season.

      Wonder if a Mane injury changes Klopps thoughts about adding Timo Werner. I know the rumors have us putting in an offer for the Summer window but we may be doing it sooner rather than later.

      I mean I like The OX. He was just starting to make a serious contribution before he got injured. Could well be down to fitness and to be fair most were looking leggy at about the hour mark. He'll get plenty of chances but we obviously have fantastic standards and I hope he is with us on this fantastic journey that the boss is taking us on.

      It was class until he got tackled.

      Once again too much individual work by Salah, and we were lucky the ball fell to Henderson.

      Yes we needed that bounce of the ball off Salah that I spoke about earlier. One way or another though he took 2 or 3 players to stop him and when the ball got to Hendo they were out of the game.

      This is why if Mo would find it in himself to release the ball of his own accord he will become an even better player. Taking players out of the game for others can be just as devastating - perhaps even more so - than trying to create chances purely for himself.

      I think Mane’s got them in his jockstrap, it’s why he went off 😆[/i]

      Just wanted to highlight this bit of comedy gold from Billy earlier in the match thread, for those who missed it!  ;D

      Getting a second goal sometime before the 85th minute would do wonders for our nerves.

      Like the 84th minute you meant?  :)
