A video is doing the rounds appearing to show Liverpool fans caught tearing up seats at Wolves’ Molineux after the stoppage time winner.
Jurgen Klopp’s side secured a last-gasp three-point haul on their trip to Wolverhampton after they left it very late, the 93rd minute, to pick up a 1-0 win which temporarily sent them to the top of the Premier League.
Second-half substitute Divock Origi bagged another influential goal, smashing his effort through the legs of center-back Conor Coady and past keeper Jose Sa, sending the travelling support into rapture.

There was plenty of frustration in the stands following some woeful chances wasted within the game by the away side, and it had looked to be a surprise draw, only for Liverpool to pop up at the end and produce wild scenes from the travelling supporters.
As seen above, they were caught on video ripping up and bizarrely taking seats away from the stands during their full time celebrations.
The actions were immediately condemned by Wolves fans on various social media sites, with a small handful of supporters causing many to paint an entire fanbase with a wide brushstroke of assumptive behavior.
Nevertheless, the scenes are never a good one to see if you are a Wolves supporter, with the home ground having been unnecessarily scarred all in the name of a late win.
Wolves boss Bruno Lage: “I am frustrated because when I see my players’ faces I don’t think they deserved to lose the game. It was more difficult to see their faces at the end than when we conceded the goal. We have the same situation against Leeds, if you remember. It is difficult but we have the opposite taste against Aston Villa.
“We were very solid. I am proud of everyone. I am very happy with my players. We have a young team, young players, they need to experience all the moments of the game. We move on because today we played one of the best teams in the world. Next week, we will, for sure, also play one of the best teams in the world.”
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “It was really big, really important. It was really difficult for us today. We missed a lot of chances and we had to defend the counter-attack of Wolves with Traore. That was the challenge today.
“But I liked the game we played because we played between lines. It was really good apart from the finishing. Divock Origi, the legend, came and finishing it off for us. It is not a lucky win. We were lucky we scored late but a point would have been lucky for Wolves.”
