And the Reds' firepower comes from Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, with Xherdan Shaqiri kept on the substitutes' bench.

Salah was the difference maker, constantly tormenting the Wolves defence and he took his goal brilliantly, while his assist for Van Dijk wasn't bad either.

Manchester City can close the gap to a single point when play Crystal Palace at the Etihad on Saturday.

"We have Manchester City waiting, and that will be really tough for the boys".

"Somebody said the last four times, the team who was first in the table at Christmas won the league, but was it ever such a tight race?"

"So far it looks like a really special season, 48 points before Christmas is insane". 'But there are other teams. "You will probably need 105 to be champions at the end of the season, you don't know".

Tottenham, in third place, has 39 points ahead of this weekend's clash with Everton, while fourth-placed Chelsea has 37 before its home clash with Leicester City.

"(The title) is a special achievement and one we're obviously hoping to get to but it's a long way to go and we're coming up against a lot of good teams. The other two, in 2008 and 2013, were Liverpool.

Liverpool's unbeaten start to the Premier League season continued tonight in Wolverhampton.

Liverpool had been on the back foot but there was no denying the quality of their opening goal, scored by Salah on 18 minutes.

Wolves nearly produced an immediate response to drag themselves back into the game when a mini-goalmouth scramble ended with the ball falling to Saiss, but his snapshot was straight at Alisson.

Salah moved ahead of Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the scoring charts and isn't too far behind his incredible scoring rate from last season.

The travelling Kop then had plenty to cheer when Liverpool's advantage doubled half way through the second half.

A corner was cleared as far as Salah, who delivered a teasing cross from which Van Dijk stretched to turn the ball home.

Liverpool will be without right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold due to a sprained ankle, but James Milner is availble to play, having recovered from a minor muscle problem.

In midfield, Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita will form a well-rounded unit, with Liverpool potentially lining up in either a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 formation.
