Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expecting Wolves to be out to prove a point in tomorrow night’s FA Cup third round replay.

The two teams will square off at Molineux, after the first game finished 2-2 at Anfield.

Wolves are looking to dump the cup holders out, something that should have already happened.

Wolves deserved to win at Anfield having put in a really good performance.

Toti Gomes saw a late goal ruled out, after Matheus Nunes was called offside.

But cameras didn’t pick Nunes’ position up on the replays, so the on-field decision was upheld and the goal remained chalked off.

Some angles have since come to light and suggested that Nunes was onside.

That decision enraged supporters. And Wolves have since been told it was because a cameraman had zoomed in too far.

It is likely that had Toti’s goal been allowed to stand, Wolves would have gone through to the fourth round, where Brighton are waiting.

But a replay must now be played, and Reds boss Klopp spoke about Wanderers in his press conference.

He said (Liverpool official): “Of course, that’s how cup competitions are. Maybe they still have the goal in mind, I’m not sure, but we have nothing to do with the goal. It’s not that we said there was no goal but it might be extra motivation, I don’t know. But they were good and it’s a home game now.

“In these situations now, the easiest explanation is always to try to bring yourself in the position of the opponent the other way around – they come here. Yes, we would be on our toes, they will be on their toes. Completely normal.”

The German tactician also said that he would be going ‘as strong as we can’ (via Liverpool Echo).

Wolves came so close to beating Liverpool last time. And the players need to think back to that game for this replay.

They are there for the taking.

Liverpool were comfortably beaten 3-0 by Brighton at the weekend. They have been out of sorts all season.

Wolves must use the Toti disallowed goal as fuel, and book their place in the fourth round, which is what should have happened the first time.
