Liverpool Overcome Wolves in FA Cup, Set to Face Brighton in Fourth Round.

Harvey Elliott was the hero as Liverpool edged out Wolves 1-0 in the FA Cup third-round replay at Molineux on Wednesday night, 17 January 2023, with the young winger scoring a goal in the first half. The win sets up a fourth-round tie against Brighton, who had beaten Jurgen Klopp’s side in the Premier League on Saturday, 14 January 2023, and ended a run of three games without a win for Liverpool in all competitions.

The first tie at Anfield had been controversial, with Wolves having a potential late winner disallowed for offside that VAR could not check because of a missing camera angle. This contest began in similarly strange circumstances with a power cut. But Liverpool soon settled into their stride and took the lead through Elliott’s strike from a distance.

The wolves pushed hard in the second half but could not find an equalizer this time. It was a much-needed win for Klopp’s side and will give them a boost ahead of their Premier League clash with Chelsea this weekend. Elliott once again proved his worth to the team with a decisive goal, and his performance will surely have pleased the German manager. The Reds will now face Brighton in the fourth round, looking to avenge their Premier League defeat and make it to the fifth round of the FA Cup.
