With Pep’s City suffering a shock 2-3 defeat at the Etihad, Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Wolves ensured that the Reds will have a four point lead on Christmas day and still remain the only undefeated side in the English top flight.
Mo Salah stole the headlines once again with another brilliant performance to take him to the top of the scoring charts in the league and also showed his creative side with a wonderful cross that was headed in by the towering Virgil van Dijk for his first league goal in red.
While most fans would have been impressed by mesmerizing performance put in by the Egyptian, even the most astute Liverpool fans may have missed a bit of absolute class from new man Naby Keita during the win.
Even as the 23-year-old had to limp off in the 58th minute, supporters were treated to plenty of signs that the diminutive midfielder can become one of the stars of the future during the time he was on.
One particular bit of skill especially stands out as Keita literally plucks the ball out of the air with his chest before brilliantly taking it away from an incoming Wolves player and is just the sort of ability that was expected from the Guinean when he was brought in by Klopp during the summer.
