Liverpool are now at the top of the Premier League but suffered their first defeat of the season against Manchester City in their last outing.

Jurgen Klopp's side now maintain a four-point lead over Man City, and an immediate response will be required to maintain that lead as the title race truly heats up.

Jurgen Klopp's men suffered an early exit in the competition after a 2-1 loss at Molineux on Monday night.

Fabinho, playing as a makeshift centre-back, was joined by 16-year-old Hoever after Lovren went off inside the first five minutes and they were among those culpable for the opening goal by Raul Jimenez.

Klopp's critics were out in force following the 2-1 defeat at Wolves, with a lot of rival fans clearly very anxious this fine manager will bring the glory days back to Liverpool as he has built a wonderful team over the last three years.

It came after their unbeaten top-flight run this season was ended by title rivals Manchester City last week.

Youngsters Rafael Camacho, Curtis Jones and Ki-Jana Hoever all made their senior debuts in the defeat at Wolves. They played within themselves and that's not good enough.

"The goals we conceded against Wolves were really poor", Aldridge wrote in his Liverpool Echo column.

"James Milner has been nearly faultless this season but he made a bad mistake and got punished with their opening goal".

"You certainly couldn't attach any blame to the young lads".

"It's a nice feeling and it's another game that we can look forward to now, Shrewsbury or Stoke, so we look forward to their replay and see where we have to go". Then Neves, with the wind in his back, hit a nice little shot. "There are a lot of players who are going to come in and give everything and the quality is still there".

With the Champions League not set to continue until mid-February, Liverpool can now just concentrate exclusively on the Premier League.
