Sadio Mané sees Liverpool home over Wolves with a little help from VAR
The title is surely now Liverpool’s to lose, whatever their manager has to say on the subject. This narrow victory extended the home side’s lead at the top of the table to 13 points with a game in hand. Liverpool have reached their half-way stage of the season with 18 wins and a draw from 19 games played. That is 55 points from a possible 57 and, if anything is to go awry in the second half of the season, bearing in mind Leicester City and Manchester City are not exactly breathing down the leaders’ necks, the collapse is going to have to be quite spectacular.
Now the bad news. This was another significant game disfigured by VAR. Liverpool had a goal approved when it could have been disallowed, Wolves saw an equaliser chalked off for an offside undetectable to the naked eye.
