Yesterday in the Premier League, Liverpool produced one of their best performance this season as they era riot over Wolveshampton Wanderers. The game is so special for Liverpool as they look on to hold Tottenham in the table. One of the most beautiful thing about this game is the return to Anfield. Liverpool was allowed 2000 fans into the stadium for the first time since March due to impact of coronavirus and protocols to contain the spread.

The home side opened the scoring chart when Fabinho sent a long ball to Salah but a little mistake from the Wolves defenders gave Salah the chance to get the goal in the 27th minute of the game.

In the 58th minute of the second half, Gini Wijnaldum made it 2_0 in favour of Liverpool. Goals from Joel Matip and own goal from Nelson Semedo meant that Liverpool defeated Wolves 4_0 at Anfield.

Some fans or those who watched the game might just have watched the game without noticing these two events due to excitement or anxiety.
