Comments:

League position: 7th Raúl Jiménez's goal was the first conceded by Liverpool in the Premier League in 50 days (725 playing minutes). Wolverhampton Wanderers' had now led for 305 minutes so in this Premier League season; fewer minutes than any other team. This was Wolves' first-ever game in the Premier League played on a Thursday.

Comments:

League position: 1st Liverpool had now become the fifth team to remain unbeaten in 40 or more league games after Nottingham Forest (42 in 1977-78), Arsenal (49 in 2003-04), Chelsea (40 in 2004-05) and Huddersfield Town (43 in 2011). The Reds failed in their attempt to equal their club record of keeping eight consecutive clean sheets in the top division (December 1922 to March 1923 in League Division One and October to December 2005 in the Premier League). They had now led 1-0 at half-time in their last seven games in the Premier League.
