Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-3 Liverpool – Premier League – 31st January 2012
Liverpool boosted their top four chances with an impressive victory over Wolves at Molineux on Tuesday night, while Andy Carroll celebrated the first anniversary of his move to Merseyside with a much-needed goal.
Both sides had chances to opening the scoring in the first half, but it wasn’t until the 52nd minute that the deadlock was eventually broken, with Carroll prodding home a Charlie Adam centre. Craig Bellamy doubled score soon after with an effort that Wayne Hennessey really should have saved.
The home side’s second-half collapse was well and truly complete when Dirk Kuyt made it three on 78 minutes, with a booing Molineux faithful less than impressed by their side’s capitulation.
While Mick McCarthy’s charges are now well and truly in a relegation dogfight, Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool still have their eyes on Europe.
