Wolves vs Liverpool Highlights

Liverpool defeated Wolves 1-0 in their FA Cup third-round replay at Molineux thanks to an early long-range goal from Harvey Elliott, setting up a matchup against Brighton in the fourth round. On Saturday, Brighton defeated Jurgen Klopp's team in the Premier League, but a significantly altered Liverpool lineup snapped a three-game winless streak across all competitions. Although Wolfsburg made a lot of effort in the second half, they were unsuccessful in tying the score.

Wolves vs Liverpool summary

Retaliation may have been on Julen Lopetegui's team's minds after VAR controversially denied the Wolves a late winner in the first match at Anfield, forcing this evening's replay. They wasted no time in taking the game to a Reds team still reeling from humiliating losses at Brentford and Brighton. However, the cold weather had no effect on Jürgen Klopp's underdog team as they launched their own counterattack.

James Milner of Liverpool, who has played in the FA Cup more times than everyone else on his team combined, defied his years to thwart Wolves' best maneuvers. The youthful ingenuity and impudence, however, was what gave Liverpool a crucial lead after just 13 minutes. Elliott had already made a number of risky runs before showing off his true abilities. He outran the Wolves defense and fired from a distance past José Sá, who was somewhat out of position and grasping at thin air.

Although Adama Traoré probably should have performed better when put through on goal with HT looming, Molineux expected a response and they got one. The hosts maintained their lead into the second half, but struggled to create opportunities. Despite Virgil van Dijk's continued absence, Liverpool's backline defended admirably.

Elliot's goal sends the Kops to the next round

Although the BBC's HT coverage may have raised expectations for British viewers, neither team offered much in the way of goalmouth action after taking the lead. Liverpool may find comfort in the performances of Thiago Alcantara and Stefan Bajeti despite their recent midfield problems. The pair, who were playing at different stages of their careers, worked together to retake the park's center and defeat the Wolves whenever they showed signs of organizing.

The ease with which Liverpool crossed the finish line after a challenging season may have had them pinching themselves. Despite Matheus Cunha, a new signing for Wolves, shooting wildly over in the dying seconds, Wolves barely put Caoimhin Kelleher, Liverpool's goalkeeper, to the test. Overall, Klopp will be happy with his team because they won in a game that may have been their best opportunity to win a trophy this year. The FA Cup champions are now crowned.
