Championship side Wolves piled more misery on Liverpool as they stunned their fancied opponents by 2-1 in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

With the Reds set to play Premier League leaders Chelsea on Tuesday, Jurgen Klopp rested the majority of his first team stars but the move badly backfired as Paul Lambert’s side took the lead in the very first minute when an unmarked Richard Stearman headed home from a free-kick. The visitors doubled their lead four minutes from the break when Helder Costa set up Andreas Weimann to round Liverpool keeper Loris Karius for an easy finish. Jurgen Klopp introduced the first team start Philippe Coutinho, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge after the break but they failed to make their presence felt. Divock Origi scored in the 86th minute to set up a frantic finale but the visitors held on to advance to the fifth round of the FA Cup.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
