Roberto Firmino lashed home a late winner to earn Liverpool a dramatic 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday.

A hard-fought contest appeared to be heading for a draw after Raul Jimenez had equalized Jordan Henderson’s early opener — a fine header from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner — in the early stages of the second half at Molineux.


But the Premier League leaders regrouped and once again dipped into their seemingly boundless reserves of resolve, registering the 22nd win from 23 Premier League games this season through Firmino’s emphatic left-footed finish in the 84th minute.

The Reds sit 16 points clear of second-placed Manchester City in the Premier League standings, with a game in hand on their nearest rivals.
