Liverpool ensured they made a winning return to the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as they defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 at Molineux.
In addition to the victory, which saw Liverpool briefly return to the top of the Premier League table for the first time since May 2022, there were positives for Jurgen Klopp to take as Ibrahima Konate made his return from injury.
The Frenchman had missed the victories over Newcastle United and Aston Villa last month after suffering a hamstring issue against Bournemouth, which later forced him to withdraw from France's squad for their September internationals.

On Saturday, though, the Reds were still without Trent Alexander-Arnold and Thiago Alcantara, with the duo having not trained with the rest of the squad prior to the trip to the West Midlands.
Here, the ECHO takes a look at the expected return dates of the Reds' absentees.
Alexander-Arnold is currently nursing a minor hamstring injury which he sustained in the closing stages of the Reds' 3-0 victory over Aston Villa last month. As a result, the 24-year-old, who was replaced by Jarell Quansah on that particular afternoon at Anfield, pulled out of England's squad for their international matches against Ukraine and Scotland.
There was a positive update on the right-back's situation last week, though, when he was pictured wearing boots at the AXA Training Centre on Thursday. However, Alexander-Arnold did not take part in any team training sessions prior to Saturday's trip to Molineux.
