Liverpool v Wolves: Live matchday blog

Liverpool were eliminated from the FA Cup at the fourth-round stage after they suffered a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield.


Klopp: I'm responsible

The manager has delivered his verdict on the defeat against Wolves, promising that Liverpool will learn from their current difficult form. Click here to read a summary of his post-match press conference.

Full Time

Liverpool 1-2 Wolves

Origi gave the Reds hope with his 86th-minute goal but it proved too little too late.

Liverpool bow out of the FA Cup in the fourth round.


Four minutes to be added on.


End-to-end stuff at Anfield with Origi so close to grabbing a second before Bodvarsson also nearly nets. 

There's still time for another goal!



Liverpool 1-2 Wolves (Origi)

A corner pinballs around the box before Sturridge nods back into a dangerous area and Origi slams home.


Wolves win another corner through a dangerous break.

Liverpool don't have much choice but to leave those spaces open.



Ovie Ejaria's game is over as he leaves the field for Emre Can.


Woodburn jinks into the box and goes down under the attentions of Evans but the referee waves away calls for a penalty.


Another sub for the visitors, Nouha Dicko making way for Jon Dadi Bodvarsson.


Match shot

Alberto Moreno charges up the pitch.



Wolves with a change of their own now as Helder Costa makes way for Connor Ronan.



Roberto Firmino leaves the field to be replaced by Daniel Sturridge.


Coutinho plays a threaded ball to Moreno but the Spaniard can't keep control after beating Burgoyne to it.

This is much better from Liverpool but they'll need to make it count soon.


Liverpool penning Wolves in  now, with Coutinho getting plenty of time on the ball in dangerous positions.

There's a goal in this for the Reds if they keep it up.


Yellow Card

Wijnaldum drags back Costa and goes in the book. The Dutchman looked to be pulled back before that so is a touch unfortunate.


Yellow Card

Origi knocks the ball around Hause and is dragged down - yellow card.



The game restarts with Liverpool attacking the Kop and needing a big comeback.



A change at the break as Coutinho replaces Randall. 

Liverpool look to be deploying three at the back here: Karius; Gomez, Lucas, Klavan; Woodburn, Ejaria, Wijnaldum, Moreno; Coutinho, Firmino; Origi.


Match shot

Roberto Firmino escapes the attentions of former Academy man Conor Coady.

Half Time

Liverpool 0-2 Wolves

A poor half from the Reds see them go in two down. Klopp has a big job on his hands at half-time.



Liverpool 0-2 Wolves (Weimann)

Nightmare stuff for Liverpool.

Wolves break through Costa, who manages to avoid the attentions of Moreno before sliding the ball into Weimann.

The attacker has the simple task of moving the ball around Karius before tapping into an empty net.


Match shot

The gaffer looking pensive.


Brilliant from Ejaria as he plays a one-two before nutmegging a defender and bursting into the box.

The midfielder is subsequently nudged off it by Stearman and the referee has no interest in giving a penalty.


Yellow Card

The goalscorer Stearman goes in the book for a cynical tug of Wijnaldum's shirt after a clever one-two.


Moreno so nearly finds Wijnaldum with a clipped ball over the top. 

The Reds haven't been far off creating some good chances but the ball isn't falling right just yet.


Much better from the hosts.

Woodburn plays a perfect ball over the top for Firmino, who escapes his man before winning a corner.


Match shot

Richard Stearman celebrates his early goal in front of the Kop.


Liverpool so nearly two down.

Helder Costa collects the ball after a corner is cleared and goes on an incredible slaloming run that ends in the Reds' box, 

Thankfully, the winger's chipped attempt bounces harmlessly wide.


Liverpool settling down now and enjoying some possession but Wolves have got something to hold onto and are determined to sit in. 

This defence will take some breaking down. 



Liverpool 0-1 Wolves (Stearman)

Not what the Reds needed. 

Helder Costa sends in an inswinging free-kick from the Wolves right wing and Richard Stearman meets it unmarked at the back post to nod in.



The game gets under way with the Reds attacking the Anfield Road end first half.


Here we go...

The players are back out as 'You'll Never Walk Alone' rings out. Come on you Reds!


Warm-up completed

The players head back down the tunnel after being put through their paces by the coaches and we're just 12 minutes away from kick-off.

Former Reds Steven Gerrard and Paul Ince are pitchside offering their thoughts ahead of the game. I can imagine both wish they were taking part today.


Inside the home dressing room


The players arrive...

Ojo's view

The manager hinted he could name a changed side for today's meeting with Wolves as he looks to keep things fresh after another busy period.

But, whatever team runs out at Anfield, Sheyi Ojo says it up to those selected to bring an end to the Reds' mixed recent form.

This is Anfield

The Reds haven't been in the best form of late, but that hasn't shaken the manager's belief that this can be a successful season, as he states in his programme notes today.

"I am not immune to the sense, around us in this moment, that the sun is not shining as brightly on us compared with a month ago. This is the world we live in and it is football. But I cannot allow that to become a factor that distracts us or affects the team."
