Match Thread: Wolves vs Liverpool - FA Cup Third Round
January 7 2019
Wolves face Liverpool for the second time at Molineux this season as they meet in the third round of the FA Cup. They will be hoping for an outcome similar to the tie in 2016 rather than in December when Liverpool won 2 - 0 in the Premiership
Wolves could not really have faced a tougher home draw for their first foray into the FA Cup this season than another visit from current Premier League leaders Liverpool. Wolves fans will be hoping that the likes of Mo Salah and Roberto Furmino will be missing from the Liverpool line-up to save them for upcoming European or Premiership matches, whilst also hoping to see Nuno Espirito Santo field a full strength team. Diogo Jota is reportedly back in training and may therefore be considered for a starting position.pqs: qs:

Also be interesting to see the crowd. I've just had a look online and there are loads of tickets left. Just the kind of match I've love to go to, not on a Monday night though! The public house calls instead.
Nuno has named a strong team, whereas Liverpool name pretty much a second string.
Ruddy, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Jonny, Dendoncker, Neves, Vinagre, Moutinho, Jota, Jiménez
Subs: Norris, Doherty, Saïss, Gibbs-White, Cavaleiro, Costa, Traoré
Mignonette, Camacho, Louvren, Fabinho, Moreno, (Curtis) Jones,(debut), Milner, Keita, Shaqiri, Original, Sturbridge
Firmino, Salah & Mane are on the bench.
Referee is Paul Tierney
A minutes applause for the late Bill Slater prior to kick off is beautifully observed

Bennett's long throw being utilised again tonight. Debatable offside against Jota
Wolves 1 L'pool 0
Three added minutes to be played
Half time Wolves 1 L'pool 0
After Klopp has used his other two subs to get back into into it maybe Milner could get that 2nd yellow
Hope we can set about them now and deal with Salah plus one when they come on!!
Wolves 1 L'pool 1

Wolves 2 L'pool 1
Salah stripped to come on
Ball goes off the upright & Ruddy may have got a touch.
Sturbridge & Jones replaced by Firmino & Salah
Come on Wolves
Free kick to them now safely gathered by Ruddy
Wolves win 2 - 1after a hard fought game, but a deserved win
In terms of the next round, the draw may be slightly disappointing, however we are the side to be aimed at now, and as long as Nuno delivers with the team selection, then we have a squeak in this competition!
Very, very happy! UTW!!
Im glad Nuno is taking it serious, we could go far this year.
