Liverpool bounced back from two Premier League defeats in a row against Chelsea and Fulham to defeat Wolves 1-0 on Monday, with Diogo Jota scoring the deciding goal against his former club.

Jurgen Klopp's men impressed in the Champions League last midweek against RB Leipzig, and were able to translate their European form to domestic duties as they claimed all three points at Molineux.

Who were the best performers in the Monday night clash?

✔️ Alisson: 7.8

It shows how much Wolves improved as the game went on that the Liverpool goalkeeper was one of the opposition side's best performers.

Wolves put Liverpool under plenty of pressure, particularly in the second half, but Alisson was there to make four important saves - and that was after he should have been penalised for a foul inside the box early on.

❌ Naby Keita: 5.6

Remarkably, Keita was introduced midway through the second half to provide a little bit of stability in energy in the middle of midfield, but he only really served to make things a bit shakier.

Ahead of the awful injury to Rui Patricio which resulted in a lot of stoppage time being added on, he had a 75% pass completion rate and failed to make a single ball recovery or interception.

⭐ Ozan Kabak: 8.6

Ozak Kabak has received plenty of criticism since his move from Schalke in January but with every passing game he has looked more comfortable in the middle of the Liverpool backline.

As the Reds claimed a hard-earned clean sheet, he won 6/9 duels, 3/5 aerial duels, and 100% of his tackles (2/2).

Equally as impressive was his distribution from the back, as he had a pass completion rate of 87%.

Crucially, Kabak also recorded one vital last-man tackle on Fabio Silva in the second period.
