Twelve minutes of misery as Liverpool misfire again

Jurgen Klopp manager of Liverpool looks dejected alongside assistant Peter Krawietz during the Premier League match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool FC at Molineux on February 4, 2023 in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom. 

As Wolverhampton Wanderers closed out the final few minutes of Saturday’s hugely impressive dismantling of Liverpool, their fans responded to a lengthy spell of passing with chants of “ole”.

In recent seasons, that is something Reds fans were often able to inflict on their opponents – but those days feel like a long time ago as a season of disappointment continues.

If a 3-0 loss at Brighton last month felt like a significant low, then this 3-0 defeat at Molineux was arguably worse. After all, the Seagulls are chasing a top-seven finish while Wolves started Saturday in the relegation zone.

This latest defeat also marked the first time since 2012 that Liverpool have lost three successive away games in the Premier League. Since the turn of the year, they have conceded nine goals in four games and scored just one – hardly ideal form with the Merseyside derby up next.

“We have to change it immediately in the next game,” accepted boss Jurgen Klopp.

“Everton won today and they are in a good moment so we have to prove a point again.”
