Divock OrigiDivock Origi's goal came from almost the last kick of the match

Liverpool went top of the Premier League as substitute Divock Origi scored a last-minute winner to sink Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

With seconds remaining, Origi latched on to a Mohamed Salah pass, smashing the ball beyond Jose Sa in the Wolves goal.

The win meant Liverpool leapfrogged leaders Chelsea, who lost 3-2 to West Ham in Saturday's early kick-off, although they will drop down to second if Manchester City beat Watford in Saturday's 17:30 GMT match.

Defeat was cruel on Wolves, who had defended heroically for 94 minutes and were 60 seconds away from becoming the first team to stop Liverpool scoring this season.
