A word on Patricio...

Rui Patricio, a man who has been a vital cog in this Wolverhampton Wanderers machine was stretchered off tonight, after a nasty head injury.

Everyone at VAVEL UK wishes Rui a very quick recovery and our thoughts are with him, and his family.

Get well soon, Rui!!

23:106 months ago

Full time thoughts...

A game that will be remembered as the game where Rui Patricio was injured in a nasty collision. 

Diogo Jota converted one of Liverpool's chances but there was nothing for them to shout about apart from that. 

As for Wolves, they created a number of chances but they couldn't convert. Traore looked better tonight for Wolves as he was positive down the right hand side.

FULL TIME: Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-1 Liverpool.

A goal from Diogo Jota wins the game for Liverpool, in a game that has been heavily overshadowed by the horrible injury to Rui Patricio.

It was an accidental collision with captain Conor Coady that has hurt Patricio. The game has completely stopped. Very worrying time this for Rui Patricio. 

Thoughts are with him and his family.

22:486 months ago

88' - Real concern for Rui Patricio here.

John Ruddy is getting ready to come on the pitch as Rui Patricio has not moved since colliding with another player on the pitch.

Liverpool Centre-Half troubles...

Liverpool are still without their main centre-half's, Van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez as they go with Kabak and Phillips.

20:286 months ago

Both sides form coming into this game...

The home side come into this game off the back of a mixed bag of results. Wolves drew to Aston Villa last time out in a game that they will feel they should have won as Romain Saiss missed an open goal. Nuno's side have only lost one game in their last seven in the Premier League.

As for the visitors Liverpool, they have only won one game in their last seven games, which came against bottom of the table Sheffield United. A concerning contrast in their form from last season, when they were crowned champions.
