Liverpool beats Wolves to start 2020 with a 13 point lead

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Liverpool will begin the new year leading the Premier League by 13 points, with a game in hand on nearest rivals Leicester City, after rounding off a sensational 2019 with a 1-0 victory over Wolves at Anfield in which they benefited from two VAR decisions in quick succession.

Sadio Mane’s first-half goal ultimately secured an 18th win from 19 Premier League games for Jurgen Klopp’s side, whose only dropped points so far this season came courtesy of a draw at Manchester United in October.

After winning the Champions League and Club World Cup this year, Liverpool will now enter 2020 as overwhelming favourites to end their 30-year wait for a domestic league title.
