Jurgen Klopp's side extended their unbeaten run in England's top flight to 40 matches following their victory over Wolves, coming away with all three points courtesy of goals from captain Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino. 

The result sees the reigning European champions draw level with Chelsea's run between 2003 and 2004 in second place, with only Arsenal's "Invincibles" having gone unbeaten for a longer run of games in the league.
