Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hailed what he's described as a 'great' win for his side over Wolves.

A late, late injury time Divock Origi goal saw the Klopp's Reds come away from Molineux with all three points.

The win temporarily saw them go top of the Premier table, until Manchester City beat Watford 3-1 at Vicarage Road on Saturday evening.

All this came after third-placed Chelsea dropped three points at lunchtime.

They conceded the lead twice as they lost 3-2 to West Ham at the London Stadium.

Klopp said it was a huge victory against a tough outfit.

“Absolutely great. A very difficult game, we had to fight against an opponent that changed their approach.

"They normally are a footballing side, we didn’t see much of that today.

“They defended deep with a lot of players and go for counter attacks and it’s really difficult as there’s no-one as quick as [Adama] Traore.

“It was a massive challenge for our concentration as we missed massive chances with Diogo [Jota] but you have to stay in the game, which is what we did.

"We brought on [Alex] Oxlade-[Chamberlain] and Divock [Origi] on and in the end it worked out and I’m really happy with that."


Klopp also praised his side for dealing with testing conditions.

The game was quite different to Liverpool's midweek trashing of Everton.

Klopp said it is important to be able to find a way in these types of tricky games, that they are necessary if you want to be champions.

“The football game was really good in tricky circumstances.

"We played a lot of good stuff, it wasn’t easy and when the game is 0-0 you feel the pressure when you want this result so badly.

"The fact that we got it makes it really good.

“I heard this [the weather] happens in Stoke, but it was in Wolverhampton and we came through and it was all good."
