For Liverpool fans across the world, it is going to be Merry Christmas as they are 'champions' at that time of the year after a very long while.

The Reds are guaranteed to be on top of the English Premier League at Christmas after beating Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 thanks to goals by Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk on Friday.

Salah became the league’s top scorer with 11 goals when he produced a deft flicked finish to turn in a driven cross by Fabinho in the 18th minute at rain-hit Molineux.

Salah also provided the cross that was guided in left-footed from close range by Van Dijk, capping a brilliant overall display by the Dutch center back at both ends of the field.
