Comments:

League position: 8th Had Liverpool not scored their late winner, Wolverhampton Wanderers would have become the first team since West Ham United in December 2015 to record three consecutive goalless draws in the Premier League. Wolves had now scored one goal in their last four games in the Premier League and failed to score in five of their last eight home games in the division. 25 goals had now been scored in their 15 games in the Premier League in 2021-22 (for 12, against 13); fewer than any other team currently in the division.

Comments:

League position: 2nd This was the first time that Liverpool had failed to score more than one goal in an all-time record for a top division team of 19 games in all competitions. Divock Origi scored on his 100th appearance as a substitute for the Reds. They had now won 18 of their last 23 away games in all competitions (lost three).
