Liverpool's Klopp Hails Second-Half Turnaround in Victory over Wolves

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised his team's dramatic second-half transformation as they came from behind to secure a 3-1 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium.

Wolves started strong and broke the deadlock with Hwang Hee-Chan's low shot past goalkeeper Alisson Becker. However, the Reds found their rhythm in the second half when Cody Gakpo levelled the score with an assist from Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool's left-back, Andy Robertson, marked his 200th Premier League appearance by putting his team ahead in the 85th minute. A stroke of luck sealed the victory for the Merseyside club when Harvey Elliott's shot deflected off Hugo Bueno for an own goal.

Klopp commented on the turnaround, saying, "We have to play better than we did in the first half. We did in the second which was the best moment to react. In the first half, we had some problems physically, we weren't sharp, and we weren't right. That's why we changed pretty much everything in the second half, tactically and physically."

He continued, "Second-half we controlled it completely and it was a really good game then. We deserved to win in the end that's clear. When you win the lesser good games, you can have a good season. The boys reacted really well."

Klopp also acknowledged the impact of the squad's quality, saying, "Quality on the bench helps massively. Quality on the pitch was very good too."

Despite the early-season comeback, Klopp emphasized the need for stability, stating, "It's really early days in the season but we need to take all the information we get. Turning the game around is helpful in a season, but we cannot rely on it. We have to play better in the first half of games generally."
