From Premier League to non-league – your club is cov­ered

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - Front page - LIVER­POOL:

Mid­fielder Lu­cas Leiva knows the vic­tory over Wolves was im­por­tant to pre­vent fur­ther ero­sion of the squad’s con­fi­dence af­ter suc­ces­sive Bar­clays Premier League de­feats.

Hav­ing lost to Stoke and Tot­ten­ham, the Reds laid the foun­da­tion for their 2-1 win over Mick Mc­Carthy’s side with a morale-boost­ing mid­week Car­ling Cup win over Brighton.

How­ever, that would have counted for noth­ing had they not picked up three points at An­field, es­pe­cially with tough matches at Ever­ton and home to Manch­ester United to fol­low.

“It was an im­por­tant win, es­pe­cially af­ter the de­feat against Spurs,” said the Brazil in­ter­na­tional.

Char­lie Adam’s long-range shot was di­verted in by a div­ing Roger John­son and Luis Suarez did what he has done since ar­riv­ing in Jan­uary from Ajax by mes­meris­ing de­fend­ers be­fore beat­ing goal­keeper Wayne Hennessey at his near post, Steven Fletcher pulling a goal back for Wolves.
