Despite a recent string of poor results, Jurgen Klopp still fielded a heavily rotated side for the replay. It paid dividends in the 13th minute when Harvey Elliot finished off a long run from midfield with a thunderous strike from distance to put Liverpool ahead.

William Carvalho doubled the visitors’ lead as half-time approach with a tidy finish from Joe Gomez’s through ball, but the goal was ruled out for offside and Liverpool took their 1-0 lead into the break.

Wolves chased an eqauliser to no avail for the majority of the second half before Julien Lopetegui brought on former Chelsea and Atletico Madrid striker Diego Costa to try to force extra time, but could not find a way back into the game.
