In the last game of the day, Liverpool took on Wolves in front of 2,000 fans at Anfield. It was the first time that supporters had returned to Merseyside since The Reds had become champions of England; and Jürgen Klopp’s side really put on a show with a dominant 4-0 display. The earlier games saw. Kate Jamie Vardy penalty help Leicester to a 2-1 win at Bramall Lane while Crystal Palace won 5-1 away at West Bromwich Albion.
