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