Liverpool fell to a third successive away defeat as they fell to a devastating 3-0 loss at Molineux by Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Liverpool came into the game off the back of a streak of three games without a win and back to back games without scoring a goal.
The Reds dire run of form looked set to continue, as Hwang Hee-Chan raced through on goal before seeing his effort deflect off Jöel Matip before going in off the post.
Things got worse for Liverpool just a matter of minutes later as Wolves doubled their lead.
The Reds were staring down the barrel of a third consecutive away loss for the first time since March 2012.
However, Wolves were standing firm as Liverpool had still failed to test José Sá with just 20 minutes remaining.
Núñez’s miss looked to be costly just minutes later when Rúben Neves added Wolves’ third.
The midfielder received the ball from a pinpoint pass by Adama Traoré, before he rifled an effort into the goal and all but secured three points for the Wanderers.
Wolves saw out their comprehensive victory to climb out of the bottom three and leave Liverpool’s top four hopes in tatters, as they now sit ten points adrift with Newcastle set to play later in the evening.
