Wolves bundle Liverpool out of FA Cup

By Our Correspondent
Championship side Wolves held on to stun Liverpool and reach the FA Cup fifth round with a deserved victory at Anfield on Saturday.
Richard Stearman put the visitors ahead after only 53 seconds, after he was left unmarked to head in Helder Costa’s free-kick.
Costa then set up Andreas Weimann to round Liverpool goalkeeper Loris Karius and double Wolves’ lead before the break.
Divock Origi scored late on to set up a frantic finale but a largely subdued Liverpool failed to find an equaliser.
The result is the second defeat in Cup competition in four days for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
They lost to Southampton in the EFL Cup semi-finals on Wednesday, and it is their third home defeat in a week.
Wolves’ second straight victory over Premier League opposition in the FA Cup sees them reach the fifth round for the first time since 2008.
