Those of Jürgen Klopp, at the very last hour (minute 95), did not miss the opportunity to move on to Chelsea and take the lead in the Premier League after the Blues’ defeat against West Ham United. Now the ball is in the court of Manchester City, who could snatch first place from them with a victory at Watford.

Origi’s goal in the 95th minute ended in a hell of a game for Liverpool, who seemed cursed in the face of goal, especially after Diogo Jota missed one of the clearest chances in the recent history of the Premier League by not being able to define on empty goal after a mistake by José Sá.

The goalkeeper went crazy, he did not understand his defense and left Jota, a former Wolves player, alone at an empty door.

The Portuguese drove too much, filled with the ball and when there were already two players under the goal, desperately, he chose strength instead of placement and crashed with Coady. Jota could not believe it, who came from scoring two goals for Southampton and one for Everton.

Meanwhile, those of Bruno Lage were entrusted to an Adama Traoré who was very good, but who lacked success in the face of goal. The same as the Mohamed Salah-Sadio Mané duo. The Senegalese had the 0-1 in his boots in a point-blank shot that was blocked by Sá, but the one who appeared as a hero was Origi, the forgotten striker of this team. A minute from the end, the Belgian defined a play by Salah by a wing with a shot at the half turn in the small area

The champion two seasons ago puts a point ahead of Chelsea and remains with a point more than Manchester City, which plays this Saturday in the field of Watford. Wolves see how Europe escapes and Lage’s are eighth, six points from the ‘Champions League’ and two from fifth place for Arsenal, who have yet to play.
