Liverpool overtake United's last season 66 points in EPL after 23 games

Liverpool have already garnered more points than all what Manchester united managed to get all through their encounters in the last Premier League campaign following their win over Wolves on Thursday night.

Jurgen Klopp's men extended their Premier League unbeaten streak to 40 match with a narrow away 2-1 victory at Molineux Stadium, all thanks to Brazilian forward Roberto Firmino who managed to fire in a late winner.

However, Jordan Henderson handed the visitors the lead in the eighth minute with an unstoppable header from a Trent Alexander-Arnold's corner kick from the left flank.

Raul Jiminez restored parity for the home team with a sumptuous header from Adama Traore's superb cross in the 51st minute.
