Jurgen Klopp has urged Liverpool to harness the emotion of a dramatic afternoon as he compared their win over Wolverhampton Wanderers to the famous triumph at Aston Villa two years ago.

Substitute Divock Origi scored four minutes into injury time to earn the Reds a 1-0 triumph at a blustery Molineux on Saturday that lifted them to second in the Premier League table.

The manner of the victory was similar to the clash against Villa in November 2019 when Liverpool scored twice during the closing minutes to win 2-1 in a pivotal moment on the way to a first championship in 30 years.

And Klopp wants his side to channel the self-belief engendered by their latest unlikely success in the Midlands.

"Does the way we won make it feel bigger? Absolutely," said Klopp. "Like the good old times, like Aston Villa when we were down after 87 minutes and scored twice.

"These kind of things are really special and we will keep that for ourselves and use it at the right moments.

"The football was really good in tricky circumstances, we played a lot of good stuff. But at the end people might have been thinking 'how can you not finish it off' but it was really not easy.

"The longer the game goes and it's still 0-0 you feel the pressure because we wanted this result so badly. That we got it is really good.

"I heard these days happen in Stoke but today it was Wolverhampton, it was really tough but we got it, we came through it, and all good."

Origi had replaced skipper Jordan Henderson with 22 minutes remaining as Liverpool sought to find a way through a stubborn Wolves rearguard.

And Klopp explained how the Belgian became the focal point of the Reds' efforts to seal a fourth successive Premier League win and continue a run of having scored in their last 29 games.

"Give the ball to Divock was the plan," said the Reds boss. "With Divock on, it was a new challenge for them because we played differently before that.

"Diogo (Jota) had to drop (deeper) a lot and caused them problems with that, but Div should be around the goalkeeper in the centre.

"He had some good moments, was unlucky with one shot after a turn."

Klopp, speaking to BBC Sport, added: "We had to fight against an opponent who changed their approach because of the pressure we put on them.

"They are usually a football playing side and we didn't see a lot of that because we were at them and our pressing were really good. That meant they defended deep and could counter-attack in moments.

"That was a massive challenge concentration-wise. On the other side, we missed massive chances, it was incredible.

"We changed offensively, we brought on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Divock and in the end it worked out and I'm really happy about that."
