A moment of indecision by Coady, who came through Liverpool’s academy, allowed Salah to steal in and slot home in the 24th minute, and the Wolves defender then thought he had won a penalty only to see the decision overturned following a video review.
Georginio Wijnaldum made it 2-0 in the 59th minute with a brilliant curling effort, seconds after Coady failed to get a shot away when in on goal at the other end, and Joel Matip headed a third from a pinpoint Salah cross eight minutes later.
GET IN! BRILLIANT, REDS! 👏🔴
