Robbie Fowler has expressed his sympathy for Wolves this morning, after last night’s highly controversial 2-2 draw with Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Julen Lopetegui’s side will face off against the Reds again after the contest ended all square.
Goncalo Guedes and Hwang Hee-chan got the goals for Wolves, while Darwin Nunez and Mo Salah were on target for the hosts.
Wolves gave a brilliant account of themselves at Anfield.
Lopetegui set his team up really well, and Wanderers were full of confidence and belief that they could win.
And they thought they’d done that when Toti Gomes scored with around 10 minutes to play.
But it was ruled out, with Matheus Nunes adjudged to have been offside.
There were apparently no camera angles available to show his position, and so the on-field decision was upheld.
Prior to this, there was also controversy about the Salah goal.
He was offside when the ball was played in. But Toti trying to clear the danger meant Salah could then not be deemed offside. The Egyptian finished after getting the ball under control.
Wolves fans are not a happy bunch at all today, and Anfield legend Fowler completely gets their frustrations.
He tweeted: “Seen so many angles of that @Wolves ‘goal’… still can’t see the offside in all honesty. Even Mo’s goal ruling should be changed, ridiculous… how can a player not be interfering when he forces a defender to try and clear the ball.”
Wolves were extremely unlucky against Liverpool as Robbie Fowler wades in
Wolves were extremely hard done by last night, and deserved more for the performance they gave.
Fowler’s assessment says it all really. He’s a Liverpool legend, and even he has sympathy with Wolves after last night.
The players were brilliant, but they must now prepare to face the Reds again and they really shouldn’t have to.
A replay is not what Wolves need right now.
Lopetegui has injuries mounting up and the squad isn’t that big, so extra fixtures are not ideal.
