London, Dec. 30 (BNA):  Liverpool will take a 13-point lead into the New Year after they edged out Wolves 1-0 in a hard-fought encounter in the Premier League on Sunday.

Sadio Mane scored the only goal of the game in the first half while VAR played its part as Juergen Klopp's side extended their unbeaten run to 36 matches and pulled further clear of Leicester, having played one game fewer, Deutsche press agency (dpa) reported.

Champions Manchester City are one point further back in third after a 2-0 win over Sheffield United, with Chelsea six points behind them in fourth after a 2-1 win at Arsenal.

"We want to keep continuing what we are doing and we will see where we are at the end of the road where were can be," Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk said.

"We feel we can improve but cannot complain about where are. 2019 was promising and hopefully we can keep it going and enjoy the ride."
