After the Reds defeated Wolves at Molineux to advance to the FA Cup fourth round, Jurgen Klopp stated he had been waiting "ages" for Liverpool to triumph with a strong showing.
Three days after a disastrous Premier League loss at Brighton, Harvey Elliott's incredible first-half drive gave Klopp's team their first victory of the year. Wolves put a lot of pressure on them in the closing minutes, but the significantly altered visitors held on to secure a fourth-round matchup with the Seagulls for Sunday, January 29.
Following a valiant win against Aston Villa and Leicester in the Premier League, hard-fought losses at Brentford and Brighton, and a 2-2 draw with Wolves at Anfield, Liverpool suffered a 3-2 League Cup loss at Manchester City on December 22. The victory on Tuesday was Liverpool's third since domestic football resumed following the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
