Football: Wolverhampton eliminate makeshift Liverpool from FA Cup

Liverpool have suffered a second straight defeat in English football, losing to Wolves 2-1 in a FA Cup third-round tie at Molineux Stadium.

Four days after their first Premier League loss of the season, Liverpool's manager Jurgen Klopp made nine changes to the side beaten 2-1 by Manchester City.

Debuts were given to teenagers Rafa Camacho and Curtis Jones, while an injury to defender Dejan Lovren inside five minutes saw the early introduction of 16-year-old Ki-Jana Hoever.

Hoevar proved to be Liverpool's best on the night, looking assured alongside makeshift defender Fabinho.

Wolves took the lead in the 38th minute, when striker Raul Jimenez capitalised on a mistake by James Milner, who gave away possession in midfield.

Jimenez was put away by Ruben Neves, running 40 metres, before slotting past goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.

Liverpool equalised through a stunning Divock Origi strike five minutes into the second spell.

The Frenchman beat two defenders, switched the ball to his right foot and struck a superb shot past Wolves stopper John Ruddy from outside the box.

But Origi's goal was topped by Neves four minutes later. The Wolves attacking midfielder received the ball 25 metres from goal and unleashed a right-footed cannon that beat Mignolet at his near post.

In response, Klopp threw on heavyweights Mohammad Salah and Roberto Firmino, but they failed to break down a resolute Wolverhampton defence.

Xherdan Shaqiri came closest for the Reds – his 30-yard free-kick was magnificently tipped onto his own post by Ruddy, before the ball bounced away out of the danger zone.

Liverpool's elimination from the FA Cup leaves them with just the Premier League and Champions League trophies to compete for.
