Liverpool made their way to the fourth round of the FA Cup where Harvey Elliott’s stunning goal decided the showdown against Wolverhampton.
The original fixture at Anfield was at the center of a VAR storm as a late Wolves goal was ruled out, but there was far less drama in the replay.

The match was ultimately of low quality, won early by one first-class piece in the entire game.
Liverpool youngster Harvey Elliott collected the ball in his own half and moved forward before firing a long-range shot into the net.
At the time, Liverpool were definitely running, and they had the ball in the net again shortly thereafter, but Fabio Carvalho was well offside.
from there, Liverpool He generally succeeded in keeping the wolves at arm’s length. The hosts looked a little constrained by their defensive form, although they were also squandering occasions they did get into good positions.

However, Liverpool stood firm, and Elliott’s fifth goal for Liverpool turned out to be a worthy game-winning goal.
Liverpool will now face Brighton V FA cup Fourth round.
