Liverpool lost 0-3 to Wolverhampton in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season at Molyneux Stadium in Wolverhampton, England at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 5th. As a result, Wolverhampton is 15th with 20 points (5 wins, 5 draws, 11 losses), and Liverpool is in 10th place with 29 points (8 wins, 5 draws, 7 losses).
It was the worst game ever. They conceded two goals in the first half alone. In the 6th minute of the first half, the ball Hwang Hee-chan tried to connect from the right half space area was hit by Joseph Matip’s foot and led to an own goal. An additional goal was immediately scored. In the 12th minute of the first half, in a free kick situation, Craig Dawson calmly finished it.
There was no turnaround in the second half. In the 27th minute of the second half, after Adama Traore broke through, Hubin Neves cut the low and fast cross into the net, widening the gap to 3 points. As it is, Wolverhampton, who finished the game stably until the final whistle was blown, won 3 points. 슬롯사이트
Klopp, who suffered a shock defeat, was in a state of collapse. In an interview after the game, Klopp said: “It was a terrible start. Two goals that couldn’t have happened and we were drawn 0-2 because of our fault. We had to defend better. We were passive during that period. I can’t explain it. There are no excuses.”
With this defeat, Liverpool recorded a winless record in four official league games (1 draw and 3 losses). It is further away from the top 4, where you can win a ticket to the European Football Federation (UFEA) Champions League (UCL). They are 11 points behind 4th place Newcastle United (40 points) with one less game played.
Merson, who is an Arsenal legend and a commentator for Sky Sports in the UK, criticized it harshly. “They weren’t good from the start. Wolverhampton scored with a good counter-attack, and Klopp just sat there. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a scene like that. If you look at the team, they’re at least a million miles away from last year. Liverpool are terrifying.” We lost. Now the opponent is not afraid of Liverpool.”
