111 – Since returning to the Premier League for the 2017-18 season Mohamed Salah has scored or assisted 111 times in the competition (82 goals, 29 assists), at least 20 more times than any other player (Kane, 91). Inevitable. pic.twitter.com/OhjeAerD4L

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp described the return of fans to Anfield as an emotional “goosebump” moment. “It was very emotional. After 10 months without that it is a wonderful, wonderful sign. “During the game was emotional, it was so nice to hear ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.

What the managers said
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “Wasn’t it the perfect night? Imagine 10 months ago people would have told us we would have a game and 2,000 people would turn up. When we came out we all had goosebumps. I had no idea how it would feel. It was perfect. The noise, what the people did, they were on their toes you could see and feel and smell. They had waited so long for it. It is so much more enjoyable with people involved.”
Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo: “It was definitely a tough night. We could have done many, many things different – before the game, during the game… We didn’t have enough of the ball. We didn’t deal well with the pressing of Liverpool. We were organised until the moment of the first goal. We had a poor second half. I didn’t see the images of the penalty decision.”
