Defending champions Liverpool advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup thanks to a dream goal in stoppage. In the replay, coach Jürgen Klopp’s club beat Wolverhampton Wanderers of the Premier League 1-0 (1-0).
Wolverhampton – Harvey Elliott scored the decisive goal in the 13th minute with a brilliant shot from distance. In the teams’ first meeting, Liverpool drew 2-2 at home to Wolves on 7 January.
After two defeats in the English football championship, it was a major success for Klopp and his team, in which the two former Bundesliga players from Leipzig, Naby Keita and Ibrahima Konaté, were featured in the starting eleven. In the next round, the Reds travel to Brighton & Hove Albion at the end of January, where they lost 3-0 in the Premier League last weekend. dpa
