Origi’s stoppage-time winner takes Liverpool top

Divock Origi came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner as Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Wolves at Molineux took them top of the Premier League.

The Premier League top scorers had spurned numerous chances with Conor Coady producing a heroic goal-line clearance to deny Diogo Jota as Wolves defended doggedly.

But their resistance was broken in the 94th minute when Mohamed Salah set up Origi who swivelled and turned home from close-range, sparking wild celebration in the away end.

Chelsea’s defeat to West Ham earlier in the afternoon had given Liverpool the chance to leapfrog them and while Manchester City could still overtake them later in the day, this felt like a huge three points for Jurgen Klopp’s side as they came so close to being denied by Bruno Lage’s men.
