Liverpool ran out 2-1 winners at Wembley but the scoreline did not speak about the true nature of the game.
The Reds were the better side throughout the 90 minutes and a late goal from Erik Lamela provided a nervy end to the match.
Liverpool should have scored half a dozen or so but poor finishing and decision-making almost cost us the three points.
The Reds ran Tottenham out of the park and Georginio Wijnaldum scored the first goal for us. The Dutch midfielder hasn’t scored enough for us but this was his first goal away from home in the Premier League.
Roberto Firmino got the other goal but Wijnaldum was one of our best players on the pitch. The former Newcastle man doesn’t often get praised for his performances but some Liverpool fans were ecstatic with the midfielder’s efforts at Wembley.
Gini Wijnaldum is our best holding midfielder. What a brilliant performance from him.
Fabinho & Hendo have their work cut out to displace him.

Wait. Is it his first time scoring away goal?

The Gini Wijnaldum evolution under klopp is amazing
Signed as a 10
Played as an 8
Excelling as a 6
Hands up who saw that coming? #lfc

Gini Wijnaldum now has 9 goals vs top 6 opposition since the start of the 2015/16 season.
A fantastic feat considering no other central midfielder has scored more than 4 and De Bruyne, Özil & Lukaku all play further forward and have just 7, 6 and 6 respectively. pic.twitter.com/sDs5yzLTXz

Ok, think it’s official now: Gini Wijnaldum has all the qualities of a top class (maybe eventually world class) holding midfielder. That may not be the best news for Henderson or Fabinho, but sure is for #LFC
— David Maddock (@MaddockMirror) September 15, 2018
Liverpool have bought nearly £100m of midfielders and yet we are talking about Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner. That Jurgen Klopp is not too shabby.
— Football365 (@F365) September 15, 2018
I mean it’s great news that we’ve signed a £40 million defensive midfielder, have the captain on the bench and Gini Wijnaldum is now decided he fancied being the best at that position in the world. Yes Gini.

Injury updates on two Liverpool stars that missed 3-1 win over Manchester United
Liverpool continue their Premier League journey with a tough trip to Molineux against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Wolves will not be easy opponents for the Premier League leaders on Friday as they held Manchester City and defeated Chelsea earlier this season.
Liverpool come off a comfortable 3-1 win over Manchester United, and Jurgen Klopp shared some injury news ahead of the clash.
The German revealed that Trent Alexander-Arnold is looking good after missing the win over United but won’t be ready for the clash against Wolves (h/t Liverpoolfc.com).
“It actually looks surprisingly good.
“I think Wolves will still be a bit too early but after that, they told me we can think about him.
“But for that, he needs to train. So far he didn’t train but the pain goes down second by second, which is good, and then in the moment when he can deal with it, he is on the pitch, and in the moment he is on the pitch we’ll make a decision.”
The Reds played with Nathaniel Clyne as the right-back on Sunday and we James Milner missed the United game too.
The Englishman was not risked by Klopp on Sunday, and Milner shared an update on his injury.
“I just had a bit of a sensation in my hamstring at the end of the Napoli game and made the decision, the manager made the decision [to miss Sunday’s game].”@JamesMilner injury latest 👇https://t.co/DximOZQRPx

Hopefully, we get Trent back quickly as the games come thick and fast in the festive period.

Liverpool face another tough game in the Premier League on Friday as the leaders face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.
The Wolves might be newly promoted but also have a win over Chelsea and a draw against Manchester City at home.
The Reds are in fantastic form going into the game with a huge win over Manchester United at the weekend.
Sadio Mane scored the opening goal of the game against United, and the Senegal star was pictured in training. Mohamed Salah would also want to score a goal or two against the Wolves, and the pair seemed to be ready for the clash.
Our defence wasn’t tested much by the Red Devils on Sunday, but Alisson would want to forget about the mistake that cost us a goal.
The Brazilian should be joined in the starting XI by Virgil van Dijk, and the Dutch defender certainly looks up for another battle on Friday.
James Milner and Adam Lallana did not play in the win over United, but the pair could join Jordan Henderson in the first-team action as Jurgen Klopp could mix things up ahead of a crazy run of games.
Naby Keita was also pictured training and the Guinea midfielder is slowly coming into his own in his first season at Anfield.
Keita was great in the win over United but his midfield partner, Fabinho, was the best performer in that win.
Liverpool can extend their lead at the top to four points before Manchester City play Crystal Palace on Saturday, and that pressure could see the Cityzens crack, as they did against Chelsea recently.
James Milner to return? – Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Wolverhampton Wanderers
Wolverhampton Wanderers host the Reds on Friday as we look to extend our lead at the top of the Premier League to four points.
Liverpool come off a couple of huge wins over Napoli and Manchester United but the Wolves will not be easy fodder given their exploits this season.
They have already defeated Chelsea and drawn with Manchester City, so the Reds have to be wary of their opposition.
Liverpool were incredible in the win over United, but Jurgen Klopp could make some changes in the starting XI as we look to keep the players fresh.
Trent Alexander-Arnold is a doubt for the game with Joe Gomez and Joel Matip recovering from injuries, and here is our predicted line-up for Klopp’s men.
Predicted Liverpool XI
Manager: Jurgen Klopp
The Brazilian made an error in the 3-1 win over United, but that shouldn’t faze him as we look for all three points on Friday.
James Milner (RB)
Nathaniel Clyne did a decent job in defence, but it is unlikely he will start two games in five days for us, and we could see Milner coming into the right-back slot.
Virgil van Dijk (CB)
Possibly the best defender in the world, Van Dijk has barely put a foot wrong at Liverpool and the centre-back needs to be vigil against a crafty Wolves team.
Dejan Lovren (CB)
Lovren was barely threatened at the back by United, but the Croatian will face a tougher test at Molineux.
Andy Robertson (LB)
The best left-back in the league should start on Friday as the games keep on coming.
Jordan Henderson (CM)
It was a surprise seeing Henderson not starting against United, but the captain should make a return on Friday.
The performance against United was possibly Fabinho’s best since joining the Reds, and the Brazilian should continue in the team.
Naby Keita (CAM)
The Guinea midfielder had a great game for us on Sunday and hopefully, plays more down the middle against Wolves.
Xherdan Shaqiri (RAM)
Roberto Firmino ran his socks off against United, and the Brazilian could get a rest with super-sub Shaqiri being the third man in our attack.
Sadio Mane (LAM)
Mane found his scoring boots against United, and the Liverpool forward seems set to score more on Friday.
Mohamed Salah (ST)
Salah was marshalled well by the United defence on Sunday, and we could see a similar tactic being used by the Wolves.
