Wolves 2-1 Liverpool

FA Cup Third Round, Molineux
January 7, 2019

Goals: Jimenez 38′, Neves 56′; Origi 51′


On a strange night at Molineux, the Reds bowed out at the first hurdle, as a much-changed lineup struggled to get going.

Raul Jimenez opened the scoring in the first half, and while Divock Origi levelled expertly after the break, parity was not restored for long.

Ruben Neves fired home from distance to send Liverpool packing, on a night when Rafa Camacho, Curtis Jones and the impressive Ki-Jana Hoever were all handed debuts.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on social media and our forums.

 

Fans were delighted to see Hoever come on, and the 16-year-old impressed for the most part…
